    Dario Franchetti won Indy Series, winning the Indy 500 on the way.

    Lewis Hamilton was 2nd in the F1 Championship.

    How in the name of fuck could Hamilton be awarded the British Competition Driver of the Year and the International Racing Driver of the year.

    No offence to his achievements like, fan-tastic but how does that work.

    its obvious, hes very young, very british, and in his first championship came second, oh and he easily could have won it, he beat alonso and that other guy many times, so he's one of the best in the world, and his age, his age i tell you!

    He didn't tho' that's the point. He should have won it with two or three races to go, but threw it away.

    When the metaphorical chips were down Franchetti held his nerve and won the thing.

    As this other chap actually won something he shirley deserves it. All our other entrants were runners up. But it's based on popularity and viewing figures isn't it?

    He didn't win, he was second.

    He should have won, but blew it in the last couple of races.

    Kimi Räikkönen won it, strictly speaking Hamilton was equal third, as he had the same points as Alonso.

    Oh and the team Hamilton was driving for were fined $100,000,000 and docked all of their points for cheating.

    your right, but he got that award for a reason, my guess is that he was a very strong competitor at the F1 championship on his debut, and he's British, these days if your British and lose at a world champ event, your the hero nevertheless.
