    Alonso has been a super human this season. Wow.

    That was champion’s drive. All about pace and tyre control. Final lap of Alonso shows everything was in control. Phenomenal .

    Nice drive by Alonso. Ferrari have really made excellent progress from the start of the year.
    I bet there’s a certain someone at Redbull wishing he hadn’t signed his contract for next year so soon ;)

    Great result for Sauber, I’m really happy about that.

    Suprised about how Maldonado dropped back so much and of Grosjean’s bad pace. But what a drive from the two Saubers!

    • Suprised about how Maldonado dropped back so much.

      Maldonado said his second stint was slower due to some damage sustained in the first part of the race.

      There was a moment when he drove his Williams right over some piece of debris left in the middle of the track. Everyone in front of him dodged that piece, Maldonado did not. I assume that did something to the underside of his car. If so…it’s another race where Williams are lining up a quick car and fail to capitalise on it due to driver mistakes. Same old…

    Phenomenal drive by one of the greatest driver on grid if not the greatest!!! You just can´t keep a good dog down! Things are looking mighty well for FA!!!

    On a sidenote, that last pass on Jenson should be deemed ilegal… That rule can´t be interpreted… a pass on the outside is just ilegal… he should be stripped away from that second place… but looking at how things have gone down this sunday… I doubt the FIA is gonna do anything about it….

    Excellent drive by Button… he made good progress and I´m heartbroken about Hamilton.

    Massa… just another hit of bad luck…
    Schumi… it´s a shame he had such a bad race…
    Kimi… another impressive drive but just barely missed out on the podium…

    @lawfish I agree! Webber might be thinking he messed up!! hehehhe

    Great results for the Sauber boys and not forgetting Nico Rosberg, two places behind his teammate who started 3rd.

  8. This season could still go to hell for Alonso if Mclaren and RBR keep up the pressure however, I’ve been waiting so long for Alonso to win another title. Since his last title he’s consistently been one of the best (if not the best) every single season despite getting some truly awful cars so I hope some luck shines down on him this year.

    3 Germans in the top 4 at the start, 0 Germans in the top 4 at the finish.

    It’s 2000 all over again. The F2012 is too strong and both Vettel and Webber are underperforming.

    Splendid drive from Button though. Relatively surprised by that.

    Also, the most surprising thing to note was that Massa’s pace was on par with Hamilton’s, who, at some point, was outpacing Vettel and Alonso. Once again, that shows how ridiculous the F2012 is.

    Alonso produced a great weekend – and watching him control the 1_2_3 train was good fun. Vettel seemed erratic the last third of the race, Button in good shape.

    Great to see Perez gain 11 places, good tyre management and fun side-by-sides with Hulkenberg. He delivered. KOB solid throughout. Sauber took advantage of top driver issues to secure good points.

    Disappointing weekend for Lotus & Williams, and of course for Hamilton. We had a flash of what-could-have-been with the Vettel tangle… but seems the upgrades are working.
