    WOW. Some race, that. Maldonado – great drive. Alonso – great start, perhaps poor strategy.
    LEWIS HAMILTON: Driver of the day. From 24 to 8th. Astonishing performance. Showed what might have been had McLaren not messed up in qualifying.
    Great race…bring on Monaco!

    Great to see Raikkonen to be in the hunt for WDC in his comeback season.

    Great. Now bring more updates, Ferrari!

    Alonso – 61, Massa – 2.

    I think Felipe should remember that voluntarily quitting is better than being fired.

    Kimi’s starting to climb. Hamilton lost his chance to, but at least he’s looking good to continue his momentum.

      Hamilton did a superb job today. I would say driver of the weekend. Dominated qualifying, put to the back through no fault of his own, and then a stunning drive. Managed to make his tyres last 30 laps at the end! nobody thought that would be possible, but he did it with more life in them than others who did less. Also put in some stunning overtakes, like 2 Torro Rosso’s in 2 corners, just after he had told the team he was saving tyres.

      • Hamilton is still in it even with his team trying everything in their power to make sure he doesnt have a chance. What a drive, looked after his tires for 30 laps very well and made some good moves. Just hoping that Monaco can be the first weekend where Mclaren do not mess up and he can have a fair shot.

          +1.
          That overtaking move on two cars in the same corner had me tearing my sofa apart. It’s a silly thing to say, but I want Lewis always starting a few positions behind. Seems to fire him up and excite the racing.
          And what have McLaren done to Jenson’s car? It was slipping and sliding all over the place…a good car and Jenson was in with a chance of winning this race. What a shame.

            plus another sec or two lost with a pit stop, same guy rear left side.
            are we ever going to see a race where he doesn’t get held up by his team?
            lets hope he wins the next race as that will make it 6 different drivers that have won.

    Why is Vettel ahead of Alonso in the championship standings? By my calculation, Alonso should be leading on a countback of seventh places.

  10. wongchinkong said on 13th May 2012, 15:17

    Lotus is third in the constructors. Gathering more and more points with each passing race, consistent performance from both drivers and the car. If this trend persist, should top the constructors table soon.

  11. Vettel has 1 pole. Alonso 0.

    A few things:
    – Kimi is a truly championship contender. I think he will win very soon.
    – Maldonado drove a brilliant race. Hope he continues that way.
    – Despite the win on the first race, Button’s season is awful. Lewis is way ahead of him performance wise (up to this point). Even on the looking after the tyres matter, Lewis beat him.
    – Schumacher season is below average.
    – Watching the race today, i had a confimation to my thoughts: Alonso (awful car, third podium), Vettel (drive through, changed front wing, still finished 6th) and Hamilton (24th to 8th, two stops, if started from pole he would have won it this race) are F1 genuises, amazing drivers.

    • Solo (@solo) said on 13th May 2012, 17:20

      Yeah it’s obvious those three are at the top of F1 talent at the moment.

    • suka (@suka) said on 13th May 2012, 21:37

      I would too like to comment on that it looks like Hamilton learned to treat the Pirelli tyres right which is the key this season. Having said that, he’s beating Button big time this year which was not foreseen even by me. I’m glad though for Hamilton as he has had his load of misfortune already.

      I agree. Hamilton came from the back to finish ahead of Button, Vettel finished 5 places ahead of Webber despite the drive through, and Alonso lapped Massa again.

  13. The great tyre manager Button finished a place behind the tyre wrecker Hamilton, despite having an extra set of tyres over Hamilton, and with Hamilton having to do a 30 lap stint, while overtaking and defending.

    Myths, gotta love ‘em.

    McLaren due to their own errors have cost not only their drivers but possibly themselves 40 points in the constructors- I suspect that if they don’t win the constructors it will be down to their mistakes rather than the speed of other cars.

  15. erix said on 13th May 2012, 15:46

    I think Kimi is still not realize that now the sooner the pitstop the better, different from last year he drove. Btw, It looks like Lotus still cannot calculate the tires strategies correctly, they last longer, but only just. Come on Lotus, you can do it!

    • Mister Nillionaire (@mister-nillionaire) said on 13th May 2012, 15:56

      It might just pay off in Monaco (vide Finger Boy last year), since it is so hard to overtake.

    • infy (@infy) said on 13th May 2012, 16:48

      Kimi does not make the decision when to pit. It is the team who hold that power.

    • Faca said on 13th May 2012, 17:41

      Ferrari doesn’t know that either or ever since the Pirelli tires got back into f1. Alonso would have won the race if he would have pitted in the same lap or at least a lap later than Maldonado. No 2-3 laps later. The one that pits first is at least 2-3 seconds faster than the one that is running at the end of the tires’ life.
