Best Driver: Very hard to decide. Toss-up between Vettel, Massa and Rosberg.
Vettel’s recovery race was one of the best I’ve ever seen, and had the tyres lasted a little longer he would’ve outdone Webber’s performance last year (at the very same track!).
Massa, on the other hand, could’ve scored a very solid finish, but it looks like the F2012 doesn’t like the soft tyres. He did an amazing job keeping Kimi and co. at bay and just drove the hell out of his car. Emerson freakin’ Fittipaldi seems to be extremely proud of him!
Rosberg dominated the race in Vettel-like fashion, but Schuey and Jenson’s horrible pit stops really helped him out. Would’ve loved to see him compete against those two.
…yeah, against all odds I think I’ll give this one to Massa.
Worst Driver: Hulkenberg. Was invisible today.
Best Team: Mercedes. Have they finally solved their tyre issues?
Worst Team: Lotus. HOW do you mess up Kimi’s strategy like that?
Best Overtake: Vettel on Raikkonen, as everyone else said.
Best Funny moment: “We have liftoff!” – Webber
Most Surprising Result: Rosberg, definitely.
Least Surprising Result: Button.
Special Mention to: Grosjean&Maldonado, with a little dash of Perez&Kobayashi. And let’s not forget Hamilton&Webber. Some amazing duels today.
