    One thought I missed channel TEN's coverage.... WHAT DID THEY SAY those BAR honda toyota loving Honkys ......

    All I can say is Fck you ten ...... RENAULT WON, now they have to get with the real world.........

    And I did not watch the coverage..... so I may have to eat my words as someone corrects me.......




    Chinese GP: Race - Mild Seven Renault F1 Team
    Fernando's seventh win of the season, and fourth place for Fisico, brought Renault F1 Team the 2005 Constructors' Championship. We are the champions!

    This afternoon at the Chinese Grand Prix, the Renault F1 Team won the FIA Formula One World Constructors’ Championship. A dominant team performance saw Fernando Alonso take his seventh win of the season, while Giancarlo Fisichella finished fourth, only missing a podium finish through a questionable penalty from the FIA late in the race. But the day was dominated by joy: the constructors’ championship comes alongside Fernando Alonso’s drivers’ championship to leave Renault as double world champions, an historic first for the French company.

    Fernando Alonso, Winner
    This is a fantastic feeling. I didn’t think anything could equal winning the drivers’ championship, but seeing our people celebrating, it’s just as good! I am really so happy today, and there is only one word to say to them: thank you. The race was actually very easy. We only used full power on the engine in the first part, and we saw we were quicker than everybody so we turned things down and went conservative for the second part. Honestly, it was like the opening races when we had an advantage and could manage ourpace. But today is about the team, they deserve to win, and now we are team and drivers champions. Weshowed that when we want to push, and take the risks, we can win races.

    Giancarlo Fisichella, 4th position
    I am so happy for the whole team, because we are now champions of the world. That was our target today, and we did the best possible. I enjoyed the race, because the car balance was fantastic and I could keep the McLarens behind easily in the first stint. I was just managing my pace at the start, driving within the limits to let Fernando build a good lead, and I was still in a strong position when the FIA penalised me. I don’t know why, because Raikkonen did the same in Belgium and nothing happened to him, and it was a shame not to be able to celebrate on the podium with Fernando and Flavio. Overall, this has been a fantastic year for me, my best in F1. I have won a race, scored podiums and helped the team to be world champions. I bounced back strongly after the criticism last weekend, and this is the best fourth place of my life.

    Patrick Faure, President
    This was a perfect weekend for the team. The race was full of emotion, and we twice had a big advantage wiped out – but even in the third part of the race, we pulled away. Nobody could stay with the Renaults today, and nothing could stop us from winning. This has been a perfect season, and I would like to congratulate the whole team, thank Flavio for his excellent management, and also pay tribute to our partners, who have enabled us to win. This victory is a welcome reward for all their work, and a great moment in Renault’s history.

    Flavio Briatore, Managing Director
    A great victory for Renault and the whole team. We managed the drivers’ chase well this season, and after that people built up the constructors’ championship as if it was the most important title in this sport. So to come here this weekend and dominate the race shows we have done the job right this year, both with Fernando and as a team. We have shown speed, reliability, and the whole team at Enstone, Viry and in Renault has worked flat out to make this happen. I also want to thank our sponsors, who allow us to go racing, and the Renault group for their fantastic support at every level. All those people are the reasons why we are world champions today. The last word goes to our drivers: Fisico drove brilliantly this afternoon, and after he was criticised in Japan, he put in a splendid performance; Fernando was, as always, superb. I think this a Renault team is a dream team.

    Pat Symonds, Executive Director of Engineering
    The constructors’ championship means so much to the team, not just here at the circuit but back at Enstone and Viry where people have worked with such dedication throughout the season. This is the recognition of all the work they have done, and we send our congratulations to them. The race itself did not unfold as expected, and in all honesty I wish the safety car periods had not happened, because that would have allowed us to show the true performance we have gained in the past few weeks. To win the championship with a dominant race win is the perfect way to round off an amazing season. I would also like to thank Michelin for their efforts this year, and congratulate them on their fabulous success. It is a fitting tribute to the vision of Pierre Dupasquier as he retires after this race. There has not been a race this year where the conditions have not suited their tyres, and today was no exception. They have dominated from start to finish.

    Couldn't agree more about the commentary.
    And did you notice; anything to do with "michael" couldn't possibly have been his fault.
    As far as I could see, he clearly moved left and caused the crash before the race started and although the replay was not good it seemed to me that he spun off the track (under pace car conditions) all by himself.

    PS.I drive Pugs but that doesn't stop me from saying very well done to Renault (F1) and Citroen (Loeb-WRC).

    I'm overly spoiled by having it live on 4+ channels (though none of them in English, I watch the Belgian French version and switch to German in the 1 or 2 ads), but has Channel 10 ever got it right? I don't actually remember Ch 9 getting it right either really. I dont think the Euro ones are anywhere near perfect and they have their biases but they are heaps more informed.

    Whats the problem with Aussie commentators? Ok, they are far away from this action and the old touring car stuff used to be better as they could talk to the teams, but for F1 its just a pure farce. It wouldn't take much for them to gather a decent set of info from a lot of the online sites and make a few informed quotes, even if that was their only source of information.

    Unfortunately that monopoly over TV rights in Oz just makes it very hard to change by viewer preferences. I bet the incoming satellite feeds are well controlled too to stop the live feeds arriving too.

    Re: commentary - what was REALLY annoying to me was seeing the Channel 10 news later - the sports report had the ITV commentary on the footage - it was there all along, just "delusions of grandeur" on Channel 10's part - thinking they could do a better job. All those periods of silence with comments like "The safety car is out, but we don't know why, we'll let you know" - well guys, how about just listening to the ITV guys who are actually at the circuit and can see whats happening!

    The final straw was when they got Renault and McLaren mixed up in the constructor points announcement at the end

    Congratulations to Renault. I was a fan of Renault back in the early 80's, with my favourite cars being the RS10, RE40 and RE50.

    It was a shame that Prost lost the WDC back in 1983, as I believe Renault thoroughly deserved to win the first turbo WDC after pioneering and defeating the odds that the 1500cc turbo would never work.

    Renault again proved supreme with their V10 since the late 80's and finally after nearly 30 years of trying, it's paid off. I would have preferred they started their own team ala Toyota rather than buying out Benetton because Benetton were also a personal favourite, but with the costs involved they would not have survived too much longer I guess.

    Yes that was a moronic thing to say, and Bill Woods snide remarks about some drivers futures were pretty nasty as well.

    I almost long for the days in the mid 1980's when Grand Prixs were direct telecasts, with no local content whatsoever - just the station ID, followed by the race - no stupid guitar music during (poorly timed) commercial breaks (do the station promo guys think that anyone who enjoys motorsport MUST love loud crappy 80's rock?) - and no inane local commentary before and after.

    Back to the V8's guys, leave F1 to the pro's :-)

    It's great to have Renault back at the top. If you were in the Toyota F1 management you'd be searching for answers.

    Yes it's excellent to see the little Diamond lozenge at the top of the pile again. May-be n assault on the WRC is a good option. I was watching the rally wrap-up on Fox the other day and they say Citroen may be back as soon as 2007? What's with the year off then?
    A Renault assault on the CART championship would be a good in road for renault back to the USA. They should mount an all out Green-frog team with all 3 manufacturers joining as one and try that.

    I don't think that Toyota can be too dissapointed, they are the new kid on the block in F1 and it'll take them a few more years to find their fast wheels but as much as we all don't want it I am sure they will win an F1 crown before too long.
