    Yes!

    I can’t believe it! Ferrari were actually the fastest car in a dry race! :P

    I know that Alonso completely outperformed Massa today, but Ferrari doesn’t seem to care! He was a second behind Alonso before the first pit stops.After the pit stops, Felipe lost 6-7 places to Fernando!
    And they did the same thing in Australia!

    Yaaaaaa !!! Absolutely flawless drive from fernando. Give him the car and he will do the business. :D

  4. Thomas (@smashnfanatic) said on 14th April 2013, 9:53

    Good drive by Fernando, guess he was pretty happy looking at how he was celebrating. And that is some luck for Kimi that he didn’t damage the front wing with Perez. So, a 4 way shoot for the title perhaps? :)

      @smashnfanatic
      I guess so. each team looks like put their effort mostly on single drivers. VET, RAI, ALO, HAM were all phenomenal they will be showing this performance all season. it’s down to their constructor to provide them a car to fight ’til the end, Ferrari and Red Bull have the edge on this.

    now THAT is a happy podium! great race

  6. GeeMac (@geemac) said on 14th April 2013, 9:58

    There were a lot of cracking drives today. Alonso was peerless, Raikkonen did well to hold off Hamilton who pushed him hard at times, Vettel did a good damage limitation job and almost managed to sneak a podium, Button’s race was pretty sublime with the car he had underneath him. Ricciardo and Di Resta impressed me no end as did Bianchi who was again best of the rest (even if Pic was a bit closer this race).

    But my main concern is with Williams, they are nowhere at the moment.

    • Giggsy11 (@giggsy11) said on 14th April 2013, 10:02

      Yeah I agree and Sauber are disappointing me too so far, I was expecting a similar start of the year as last year.

      • F1sauber (@f1sauber) said on 14th April 2013, 10:08

        absolutely ! Sauber very disappointing after choosing a strategy for the start, Hulk was on the lead and then ran the last third as slow as the backmarkers! Two lousy and slow pitstops! What s going on with the Swiss? I would telll the pitcrew to train day and nite til Bahrein!

      • OOliver said on 14th April 2013, 10:51

        Considering Sauber don’t even have the pace of the Mclaren, I believe they are doing relatively okay. Guitierrez will be the reason why Sauber don’t score points consistently.

  7. Giggsy11 (@giggsy11) said on 14th April 2013, 9:59

    Great Race, Now off to Bahrain and we now have to endure a week of moaning about the situation in the country, either scrap the race or caring on.

  8. Poor strategy by SAUBER for Hulk and McLaren for Perez!!!! Vettel was like a hunter, just missed his prey!

    • F1sauber (@f1sauber) said on 14th April 2013, 10:18

      I think the strategy was right, but the two pitstops were too slow! they kept the soft for too long (Hulk was loosing two seconds a lap) and what happened in the last third we dont know but he lost again more positions as he was lapping to slow!

    • OOliver said on 14th April 2013, 10:41

      I think Mclaren experimented with Perez to see when to bring button for his final stop, but for that Perez looked like he was going to score some good points.

    Awesome drive by the top 4 drivers! Very happy with Hamilton’s 3rd place! My pre-race prediction was Kimi, Alonso, Lewis. Obviously I would’ve been a lot happier if Lewis finished higher but the result was more than satisfactory.

  10. Shomir (@shomir) said on 14th April 2013, 10:04

    Great drives by Alonso and Vettel.

    Good result for Ricciardo!

    Dissapointed by Perez…

    • James Walker (@jameswalker) said on 14th April 2013, 10:26

      Perez is now just starting to prove how good the Sauber was last year. No need to be disappointed by Sergio, there was and is no firm evidence that he is all that good.

    • Not taking Perez’s side here as he clearly was a bit all over the place (happened with Alonso too) but the Raikkonen thing could fall under a racing incident after all. It was defending taken to the extreme.

      Webber’s move on Vergne is clearly ranking higher in stupidity than everything Perez did this race, in my humble opinion.

  11. Rigi (@rigi) said on 14th April 2013, 10:09

    perez needs to stop weaving around so much when he’s about to get overtaken, it was ridiculous!

    other than that, good race, solid entertainment

  12. Diceman (@diceman) said on 14th April 2013, 10:11

    So sad for Nico Rosberg, a lot of bad luck for him again :(

  13. Calum (@calum) said on 14th April 2013, 10:12

    Well done Alonso. Classy drive.
    Kimi did well, considering his front wing wasn’t optimal.

    Webber and Rosberg though, you can’t help but feel sorry for them.

    • OmarR-Pepper (@omarr-pepper) said on 14th April 2013, 19:14

      @calum let’s mention a conspiracy theory just for fun ok? ;P

      “Webber won0t have team orders… just a loose tyre and a wrong fuel calculation”
      “Brawn put some glitches on Rosberg car so he can now say: I was right with my team orders in Malaysia after all!”

  14. Toxic (@toxic) said on 14th April 2013, 10:22

    Well, that’s a great podium. It just looked so appropriate to see these 3 guys out there.
    That’s the podium which i want to see all the time. With SV there they never chat like these three did.

    I agree with Rigi, I also felt like Perez was waving too much there.

    Forza Ferrari & Forza Fernando
