Well there is always a bit of an anticlimax with first races, as we finally find out the order, and whatever wishes we have are either made true, or don’t materialise.
I join you in wishing Williams could have shown the pace they seemed to have in testing, but then in the practice sessions this weekend they were near the top of the field, so I think there is some pace in that car, and Barrichello just didn’t help things by going off the track twice.
Heidfeld was a real shock with him first qualifying so low down, but then not making any progress due to a damaged car.
I don’t think DRS is meant to have a “dramatic” effect, otherwise this would be too artificial, lets not judge it too soon, as it did provide 2 overtakes for Button, and more down the field.
Red Bull did walk it, but without KERS they could be vulnerable at the start again, and down long straights with DRS and KERS combined.
