There have always been sharks in Formula One – I won’t get political and name the worst of the current ones because Formula One chief Max Mosley has just been awarded a record $120,000 after winning his privacy case against a tabloid newspaper....

But the Hungarian Grand Prix saw even more teams introduce another shark – the shark fin engine cover which was used by a number of teams to improve their aerodynamics. For some reason McLaren didn't use their shark-fin engine cover that they had in April.

Some people do not find it aesthetically pleasing but it's much better than the Dumbo’s ears introduced by Honda earlier in 2007.

I felt very sorry for Felipe Massa on Sunday - he'd done such a good job and did not deserve to have his engine blow up a few laps from the end while in the lead.

Meanwhile it's always good to see a new man win and McLaren driver Heikki Kovalainen needed to show he could do it. It's also good to see someone get their best result ever which was the case of second place Timo Glock in ther Toyota. To outdrive Reikonnen, in a Ferrari and Alonso in a Renault with no interference from safety car or other anomaly.
