    Fantastic effort from Hamilton and Alonso. Vettel-less race was definitely interesting. Still, I don’t think DRS and Pirellis fix the problem of the track.

      Well, we did see a lot of DRS action instead of cars just running behind each other in the race. Vettel not being there only changed who was the guy up front really. Good at least Button and Webber (and Massa a bit) were charging for the 3rd spot at times during the race.

    Nice to see Hami on top of podium.. further Both FIs got into points.. nice race from my perspective..

    Kob back into the points, yes ! Finally.
    Button under pressure to secure 2nd place. Nice drive from Alo.
    Not that bad for that track, but i think they HAVE to do the changes they meant to do on the layout. I could be much better than that.

    so we safely say that force india are safe, think they can hold their 6th place in the championship unless toro rosso or sauber do something dramatic next race.

    We did not need the second DRS zone today. It stole the rewards of what were actually some very good passes into that first chicane and meant the overtaken driver would then be pretty much guaranteed that place back. For being overtaken!!

    Great drives from Rosberg, Barrichello and Kobayashi ought to be mentioned. And Buemi actually, before his retirement. So unlucky.

    Great Drives from Hamilton & Alonso,Got the maximum out of their cars although im still convinced that Vettel would’ve dominated this race had his Rear tyre not ‘exploded'(Personally,I think he went over some debris on the Kerb at the exit of T1).

    Shame for Button with his KERS problem,I think he would’ve been right in there had he not picked up the latter.

    Why Webber went into the pitstop the last lap? I think he could take another lap with those tyres even if he was driving slowly and carefully.


  8. Redemption for Hamilton for sure hes back he look supreme all weekend even batter than vettel he has proved that today so congrats.

    Webber has proved he is a good driver, yet i think that this season if redbull had 2 webbers as drivers they would be lookimng at 2nd or worse in the championship. So what is it that vettel brings to the table? is it just raw talent?

  11. The point is Hamilton did not make a single mistake all weekend.

  12. That makes him even better than vettel. ;;;

    the ferrari mechanics were too slow in the pit-stop comparing to the mclaren mechanics alonso had two stops(4.0-5.2)

  14. Did MAL/ALG/both get a penalty in the end?

  15. So disappointed to see Buemi retire. He was visibly saddened, considering he was having another good race and this time Alguersuari was behind. His bad luck may end up costing him his place, and currently I don’t think either STR driver should leave. Alguersuari is quite good, and Buemi would be much closer to him if he was more lucky.
