While the Japan Grand Prix was very strange because it was so darn wet, I thought it was one of the most exciting races of the year. Did you happen to see the last lap duel between Kubica and Massa?
Louis Hamilton showed he's got what it takes. Again, this time under adverse conditions. Nice contract he's rumored to have received.
And FINALLY someone besides McLaren and Ferrari was on the podium. Congrats to Renault, who ran second in the rain with a dry wing setting.

I knew there was a battle coming up between Massa and Alonzo, but I didn't get to see that resolved, and I wasn't able to find out what in the world made Hamilton's crew chief let him stay out on tires that had cord showing.
It should be verrrrry interesting in a couple of weeks.

Not to take anything away from Niki.
He even smiled.
