  1. Looks like Button was just taking it home after losing the lead. Vettel and Webber did some nice quick laps to try to get close/stay in front and Rosberg had a good go at getting in front of Vettel as well.

    Hulkenberg was pretty fast despite suffering from some brake issue in the last laps. Didn’t expect to see Kubica that far up in the fastest laps, i wonder weather he was trying to catch the Hulk in the end.

  2. I wonder, could the loss of downforce on Button’s McLaren as a result of Alonso’s shunt have actually helped his performance on this track? The McLaren engineers confirmed it had affected downforce.
    I know it might be a little naïve, but the worry was he had too much downforce and would be slow on straights. He was, but maybe not as slow as he might have been.

    1. EJ was asking Martin Whitmarsh the same thing on the coverage.

      1. I shall watch the BBC post race coverage. Cheers for that.

        1. I was unable to watch that part of the coverage – did Whitmarsh get asked about it, and did it get answered? I think it unlikely that Button got faster from it, but I would like to know how much it influenced him anyway.

  3. Great result for Scuderia Ferrari and Alonso (Pole, fastest lap and race win)

  4. Alonso and Webber set fastest lap times simultaneously, just after Webber had got trough Hulkenberg, which begs the question, could Webber have caught up with rosberg had Nico let him through?

    1. It’s part of what makes me so angry. Hulk clearly cut the chicane, should have conceded position, Webber would have put his head down and some storming laps in, and possibly finished fourth or fifth.

  5. The argument that the damage to Jenson’s car cost him the race is ridiculous. Even if he had been able to go a couple of tenths quicker without the damage, Alonso clearly had plenty of pace in the bag to cover it. Having said that, the slow pit stop clearly hampered him. But hearing Whitmarsh afterwards, arguing that Ferrari would have been faster if they had pitted first or second, begs the question: why didn’t they do a Vettel, and leave the pitstop to the final lap. At the very least, this would have forced Ferrari to pit first. They still might have won it, but it would have eliminated the option of going second, which was clearly preferable.

    1. Maybe they never thought about that option?
