    5/10, quite exciting at start but really no quality racing in the later half, some good driving by webber though to defend his place.

    Tyre saving sucks, 1/10.

    FOUR
    Ross Brawn has just Barrichello’d Rosberg. *** Ross? Nico has been running better this whole weekend!
    and next time Webber issued an order, I think he shouldn’t obey it like Sebastian do today. no matter whay the consequences. just racing! If only Red Bull let them race before (2010-2011), there won’t be any awkward circumstances like this.

    Decent race, the best bit was the team radio. Fascinating stuff. Rosberg rightly ****** off, and Webber looks furious at Vettel. Clear refusal to obey team orders from Vettel there though.

    Great action though. Disappointed with Kimi today, a few stupid errors and took way too long passing Perez.

    Currently watching the podium interview, Webber is FUMING!!!

    The racing was great but this race left a very bad taste in my mouth. 7/10.

    The sight of Hamilton standing on the podium, smiling and waving as if he actually accomplished something, is revolting.

    • Traverse (@) said on 24th March 2013, 10:03

      When asked by Brundle, Hamilton said “It doesn’t feel right being up here”.

    • He wasn’t smiling, and if you listened to him he said “Nico should be up here.” I have a lot of respect for him for saying that.

        How happy must Ham be not to be with Mclaren anymore..how many points I wonder have their ineptitude in pit stops cost them over the past 2 seasons..??!!! Button must be spitting nails!! I would be..!!!

    • Marucat (@marucat) said on 24th March 2013, 10:22

      Did you see a different podium than the rest of us? Hamilton was clearly unhappy and acknowledged that Rosberg deserved 3rd place.

    • lluismf said on 24th March 2013, 10:33

      It was a forced smile (at best).

    • And in the light of this you’re gonna have to wonder, WHY did Ross Brawn bother with team orders there? Rosberg would have easily passed, it wasn’t like he was pulling what Vettel pulled on Webber, they weren’t gonna risk anything, they are not fighting for the title. Why bother trashing your image (and Hamilton’s as well), create tension in the team and between your drivers, for what? Because Brawn decided it’s best to gift Hamilton his first podium for Merc like this? So, for nothing basically…

      I don’t know which decision is more stupid, Brawn’s to contain Nico or Ferrari’s to not pit Alonso…

  8. Was Vettel was told to stay behind? There are strange comments if he wasn’t, Rocky’s ‘explaining to do’ comment, Christian Horner’s ‘this is silly’. Villeneuve vs Pironi all over again.

  9. Leftie (@leftie) said on 24th March 2013, 9:59

    Very well played on the podium, Mark Webber, very well played!

  10. tkcom (@tkcom) said on 24th March 2013, 9:59

    7/10 great start, awful finish. Hammy pit, FI went bush league, Maldo as F1′s official source of comedy…

  11. What an uneventful, somber Malaysian GP! Vettel did well, his pass was great to watch, good stuff for entertainment, but he could have done it in the straights with the DRS too so I’m not going to say anything about that. I like Horner’s attitude, he was right it was silly.

    Rosberg is robbed. Thanks to the calculation mistakes made by the fat unsportsmanlike Ross Brawn. He was fast all trough out qualifying, he had a solid car, his engineers did a solid work, Nico was himself more deserving of a 3rd place than Lewis, even though I like Lewis very much and I know that his hands were tied, but don’t rob a guy off a podium because of your poor calculations, typical Ross Brawn, you did it with Michael, now you’re doing the same with Lewis. Shame on you.

    I’m sorry Nico, I know you would have cherished it.

    ha good race. funny podium.

  13. Zantkiller (@zantkiller) said on 24th March 2013, 10:05

    I suggest that the rate the race is done after the podium interview.
    What was said and revealed on the interview changed everything and I wish I could change my score to something much lower.

  14. JenniKate (@jennikate) said on 24th March 2013, 10:07

    Overall I enjoyed it.
    It’s a shame that Rosberg wasn’t allowed to race but there was a lot of drama between the Red Bulls, loads of great racing lower down the field, interesting strategies and mechanical dramas – 9/10 for me.

    Will be interesting to see what, if anything, happens throughout the season thanks to Vettel’s determination to win regardless.

  15. KaIIe (@kaiie) said on 24th March 2013, 10:07

    10/10. This is exactly what I want to see: the human element of the sport, with real drama. Can’t wait for Shanghai.
