Once again Ferrari were dominant and particularly Michael Schumacher. But at Spa they were expected to face some competition. They didn't!

A few of the highlights (in addition to Ferraris domination):

  • The Michelin runners were stronger than the Bridgestone runners but that wasn't enough to catch the Ferraris.

  • Kimi Raikkonen superb qualifying ahead of Barrichello and the 2 Williams.

  • The high number of engine failures particularly the Honda engines!

  • Should Ferrari have ordered Michael to let Rubens win to help him in his fight for second ?

Well F1 is like a drug to me and even though my team is not racing no more I still have to watch the races. The Belgian Grand Prix was boring apart from watching Villeneuve and Kimi Raikkonen on Saturday qualifying!! let's hope Arrows will race at Monza!! - Rob - Australia

I am delighted w/ Ferrari's win in Belgium. No, MS shouldn't have had to "move over" for Rubens, Michael kicked everyone's butt, and deserved the win. Rubens should have to fight for 2nd place in the championship. 
Kimi is one to watch in F1, but so is Massa, who will not get the chance, yet. 
Overlooked drivers, Fisichella, Button and Heidfeld. Who should go where? Massa to Toyota, Button should 4get BAR and also go to Toyota, Heidfeld to McLaren w/ Kimi, JV to Renualt, Fisi & HHF to Jordan where the cars will be better w/ Ford, and what's the deal w/ Honda???? They blew another today testing. These guys are better than what's going down. 
Drivers who do a lot of talking to keep themselves noticed? EI. He's not saying much, but he shore do like to talk. Later, Nova7 - USA

I agree with Jeff. Kimi Raikkonen has shown that he will indeed be the next Formula 1 champion (the one after Schumi? Could be...) In more ways than one, he has shown brilliance that few drivers can ever have in their peak. Because, yes, I believe the there's a lot more, a WHOLE lot more to come from this young Finn. Let us forget his dismal race in Belgium and remember all those times he battled hard with Montoya. He didn't always come out the winner, but then again, for a kid who barely had enough race experience to get it on with Montoya, that has got to say something about Kimi. Not that I enjoy dissing Montoya, but I still stand by my belief that it will be Kimi Raikkonen who'll take the Schumacher's place when the German retires, not Juan Montoya - Theresa R - Philippines

I agree with Jeff that Kimi is a driver to watch --as are JPM and Bernoldi, the difference being that Enrique's drives are less noticed because the car is a back marker. 
As to Honda's engines --you have to wonder if Eddie Jordan isn't making the right move. If they're going to "badge" the Cosworths with the blue Ford oval in both Jag & Jordan teams it might be a sign that Ford is finally getting serious about F1. (But I won't really believe that until I see Lauda going back into the airline business!) 
As an American, I'd love to see Ford really taking on Honda, Toyota, Renault, BMW and Mercedes; the question is can any of them, right now, take on the prancing horses? - Jim W - USA

Kimi is the one to watch. The performances he has had during this season are breathtaking. And he has only driven 30 some odd F1 races. If McLaren can give him a competitive car next year Ferrari had better watch their back. 
I think that as long as Rubens is in front of the Williams, then team orders are not needed. The way the Ferraris have been running this year, orders are also not needed to help Rubens finish second behind MS. 
Michael certainly demonstrated that not only does he have the best car, but he is the best there is right now. At one point leading Rubens by over 11 seconds and leading Montoya by over 40 some seconds. 
What is up with Honda? Not only have they become mid-pack runners, now they have had 5 or 6 engine failures in one weekend - Jeff S - USA
