F1: Canadian Grand Prix in six words

,

We don’t know what sort of words were exchanged between Hamiltons senior and junior when Lewis made it back to the McLaren garage after his accident – and we’ll probably never find out. So, instead, here are our six-word summaries of how all the teams and drivers performed.

Lacked only Dick Dastardly and Muttley

The drivers

1st: Robert Kubica
Opens F1 account with memorable win
2nd: Nick Heidfeld
His podium trip was tragic disappointment
3rd: David Coulthard
Is this good enough for naysayers?
4th: Timo Glock
Trulli suffered for his only error
5th: Felipe Massa
Must be due team-orders karma
6th: Jarno Trulli
Never recovered from wrong qualifying setup
7th: Rubens Barrichello
Much skilful defensive driving protected points
8th: Sebastian Vettel
More could not have been expected
9th: Heikki Kovavlainen
Wasted opportunity to kick-start season
10th: Nico Rosberg
Another victim of pit lane rashness
11th: Jenson Button
Why couldn’t he match Barrichello’s impact?
12th: Mark Webber
Vanished from contention after pit stop
13th: Sebastien Bourdais
Well, at least he hit nothing
DNF: Giancarlo Fisichella
Nothing went right, made no impact
DNF: Kazuki Nakajima
Developing well, but not there yet
DNF: Fernando Alonso
Team advised ignoring brake problems… mistake!

DNF: Kimi Raikkonen
Now he feels Adrian Sutil’s pain…
DNF: Adrian Sutil
Gearbox problem rude awakening after Monaco

The teams

Ferrari
Massa red hot, strategy stone cold
BMW
And about time too, we say
McLaren
Theirs to lose – and they lost
Red Bull
One day, both drivers will shine…
Toyota
They’re dancing in the boardroom tonight
Williams
Something not quite gelling for them
Renault
Lost their heads – and their opportunity
Honda
Led race, but no big breakthrough
Toro Rosso
Made successful raid on points positions
Force India
Looked like back-of-grid team
