Watching the procession unfold, six laps in it's looking like the Ferrari fans will be getting the result they want. Kubica #3.

Hamilton's finish was a but surprising, penalties and a slow pit stop didn't help.

In Formula I, like any mental and physical pursuit..

...maturity will always show. Some display it early and some take longer to demonstrate they have command of their emotions and possess the ability to truly focus. Many drivers come on the scene and are "quick" but few have the genius that allows virtually no mistakes. Mario Andretti early on was quick, "if he doesn't crash, he'll win" was the common description of his driving. When he matured under Colin Chapman's coaching, then the maturity took control of the "quick" and he became virtually unbeatable. Schumacher won the Spanish GP one year with only 3rd gear left at the end and running in drizzle on slicks because in spite of his cars "mistakes" he made virtually none. IMHO, I don't see any Mario's or Michael's in the field at this point but Kimi comes the closest with Hamilton another possibility.

In Canada we can watch it live on TSN (our ESPN) but the feed is from ITV in England.
I prefer the Speed Channel feed because it's in high def. Speed covers all races live except for Monaco, I think.
Remember, the race at Sepang was "live" at 2:30AM Eastern.

well said,
I think Kimi is definitely the most talented with the ability to make so few mistakes but I guess there is a question with his focus/commitment some times. and Hamilton looks to be right there but he does have that advantage over any other newer driver to be piloting the McLaren.
