I suppose I should have listened to my head? Logic said Montoya would win, I ignored it and . He won!

The Ferrari didn't have an answer for the Williams/Michelin pairing today, despite Michael's best efforts. Barrichello didn't come into the equation, finishing almost half a second off the pace in 4th and Raikkonen was the best of the rest another a second adrift of Rubens.

Even logic couldn't have predicted the result after Kimi. Eddie and David have been having a verbal slanging match for days, it culminated today in a decisive on-track victory to the Irishman. I suggested that the Jaguars would roar at Monza, I didn't think they would be that loud though.

The disappointments at Monza were the Renaults (again), the Honda's (Villeneuve's 9th notwithstanding) and the recalcitrant Malaysian who showed once again the level of talent that got him 'rested' for the last two rounds. The winners were Montoya and Raikkonen, Trulli and Massa (who has left his run to impress very late) and of course Jacques and Eddie (who probably only excelled to get at David).

The Italian GP 'Also Ran' Award.

David Coulthard must be starting to think that there's a conspiracy against him. An upstart kid from a place even colder than Scotland very convincingly outperforms him and a Jaguar of all things, driven by an Irish playboy of all people, slots in almost a of a second in front of him. Perhaps its time to consider retiring David? At least you will have a record number of Also Rans to mark your 2002 season if you continue driving like this. For today, your award only matches Ralf's haul of three. Don't panic though David, there's always Indy and Japan to come and the way you're driving you're looking safe for the inaugural Least Best award.
