    Can Massa make it his worst start to the season since 2009? Didn’t score any points in the first four races then, and that looks possible now.

    I thought it was a thriller, start was a bit slow but enjoyed watching Buttons chase until his unfortunate final pit stop, and the chaotic last 20 laps were thrilling. And congrats to Rosberg. An ex-Williams man once told me that he has a habit of dropping off in the middle of the race, and I was worried that would happen today, very happy it didn’t!

      @marcusbreese I must admit, I was scared he might end up getting stage-fright and lose it somewhere. I was panicking a little when he kept setting green sector times, but I guess looking back that would be attributed to burning off fuel. I think he drove a very intelligent race.

    Another cracking result. Some good damage limitation from Vettel today. I think a podium finish for him would have been brilliant.

    I like how the entire classification is a Mercedes sandwich. Well, I say like, more notice!

    Was a thrilling race to watch and am very happy that Marussia are moving forward with the performance of their car in leaps and bounds at the moment. I hope that they can continue to improve and catch caterham before the end of the season :)
