    Massa’s result is poor, sadly he lost time in a stop, but in the end I was very happy to see him defending from Alonso and beating him!!

    As I said in the comments, I think the one team failing with their strategies the most in this race, was Sauber.

    It looked like they had decided on 2 stops before the race and very stubbornly hung on to that decision in the race. And I think it cost Kobayashi a decent chance to have a go at Hamilton later on as he was having to be too careful with his tyres while losing time for several laps while they’re dropping off.

    Best moment of the race for me, was (I think) Hamilton and Buemi catching up with Rosberg at the same time on the short back straight. A very Schumacher/Hakkinen/Zonta moment :)

    It was a great race, plenty of things to watch and keep track of!
    It didn’t feel artificial, and certainly not because of DRS, but because of the very large gap in performance between tyre compound and freshness. But it’s absolutely normal, and it tends to fade late in the race when positions are a little bit more defined. Quality of the battle between the drivers actually improved over the race.

    And, FINALLY, welcome back three-way-side-by-side battle and counter-overtakes. It’s been a while.

    20 second penalty for Hamilton? Interesting to see the transcript as to why…

    Is there any chance of getting fastest race laps for each driver? Or maybe it’s up there somewhere already?
