Murray Walker | 07:40 UK time, Wednesday, 15 July 2009

Mark Webber's stunning first victory. The struggles of Brawn. Rubens Barrichello's astonishing post-race "eruption". The magnetic attraction of Force India's Adrian Sutil to Kimi Raikkonen's Ferrari. Watch my pick of the best moments of the German Grand Prix.

    Hi Murray.

    What do you think of Max Mosley's endorsement of former Ferrari team boss Jean Todt as his successor?

    Geat video Murray!

    But didn't ferrari get a podium in monaco with kimi raikkonen?
    Anyway, do you think that the McLaren team is now in with a chance of winning races?

    Thank you :)

    I hate to correct you murray but i think Kimi got a podium in monaco so it wasnt ferrari's first podium.

    I have to say that I think that Rubens was assisted in his mis-interpretation of the situation by the BBC reporter lady, who, rather than point out to Rubens that he was mistaken as there was a faulty fuel rig, instead opted to pursue a line of questioning designed to create a sensational response. Headline grabbing journalism, yes - a fair representation of the situation, no!

    Hi Murray,
    Would you be able to elaborate more on Rubens Barichello's "Bla Bla Bla Bla Bla"
    This type of language seems to me the one in use between the Big 8 prancing primadonnas versus Mosely.
    That's a hell of a lot of Bla's.

    Hi Murray

    Please can you explain why nobody this weekend has given Williams and Nico any credit for his superb drive on Sunday.
    Considering he was carrying a fuel problem(extra 15kg) I thought it was an equally brillant drive as Mark Webber's .

    Dai the speed

    Great video Murray

    How come Kimi Raikonen also has bad look at Nurburgring:
    2009: retired
    2007: retired
    2006: 4th
    2005: Crashed on the last lap while leading
    2004: retired
    2003: retired
    2002: 3rd
    2001: 10th

    Ok...we made a mistake. Yes, despite the HUGE talent of the entire BBC F1 team, we somehow managed to diminish Ferrari's achievements this season by forgetting that Kimi made the podium in Monaco. Sorry, sorry, sorry...and as the producer of Murray's blog I take full responsibility and will be emigrating tomorrow!
    Seriously though, yes thanks for pointing it out and it just goes to prove to Murray, Paul and myself that you do watch these pieces carefully and hopefully still enjoy them. We will try harder next time and I have sent Murray back to his darkened office to study the history of Formula One until he can recite the results of every Grand Prix held since 1950!

    Another good video Murray, and well spotted to those who remembered Kimi's podium in Monaco. However, given Ferrari's usually dire form this year, it can be easy to forget. Plus, Raikkonen is a man of many victories - had Adrian Sutil made it to the podium in Monaco, everyone would have remembered it!

    Talking of Raikkonen, Sutil and Monaco, I thought exactly the same thing when the clash happened. Instant flashbacks of Monaco 2008. The pair need to have words...

    Great video. Your questions shall be answered

  • Comment number 12.

    Surely developing this years car is developing next years car as aerodynamics and engine regs are fixed.... So what are the teams saying when they talk about giving up on this years car to develop next years?

  • Comment number 13.

    As always, an excellent review of the drivers in the German Grand Prix.

    Can anyone tell me what the track used at the start of each of Murray's videos is? It's very catchy.

  • Comment number 14.

    With the chairman of FOTA being Ferrari man Di Montezemolo, would not electing Jean Todt to replace Max, be putting all the eggs in one basket? i.e. Ferrari's. Surely, Ari has to be the correct choice.

    Roy- dont be too hard on Poor old Murray.
