  1. Well done Petrov. I never saw that happen!

  2. @ “Damon”
    It’s time you stop using my username!!

    1. It’s time you got lost!!

      1. Stop fighting yourself!

  3. Positively surprised by Perez and Petrov.
    Less so by Barichello…
    It’s only one race but it sure looks to be a good season!

  4. Oh and regarding the plank, it depends on the way it is measured. Just like with flexwings. So fingers crossed for Hamilton. Not a fan here, but I like it better when the results don’t change.

  5. Alonso just made his first mistake:

    He doesn’t consider Petrov to be a threat because he doesn’t think of Petrov as a title contender. But if today is anything to go by, Petrov is going to be a factor in the races. He might not be a title contender, but every race Petrov finishes in front of Alonso means Alonso loses points that he’s going to need to stay in the fight.

    If I were Alonso, I’d be treating Petrov as my greatest threat until I started beating him consistently.

    1. In all fairness to Alonso, he doesn’t really address the point which you are trying to make here. While Petrov may well be a factor, Alonso is speaking solely in terms of championship points. Realistically Petrov is unlikely to be challenging for the championship and Alonso is rightly focused on Hamilton, Webber, Vettel.

  6. Congratulations to D’Ambrosio I would say. O.K. he was 2 laps down on the next guy up the road, but the difference in the standings between HRT and Virgin last year was a 14th place and that may be the case again this year. Although chances are it’ll be a moot point in the end as Hispania probably won’t be here this time next year….

    Some interesting results from this race (what did I just say about randoms showing up in the top five & messing with my predictions…) and I think its the first Melbourne GP without a safety car. Disappointed that Webber didn’t do better, but enjoyed watching his duel with Alonso, and the Massa/Button one nonetheless.
