At last deseved win for Vettel. Good one. Nice result for Bulls - cars lasted this time, congrats.
Nice drive from Hamilton in the open stages. Battle with Petrov was nice as well :).
End of the race is quite boredom once again - you need 2+ seconds per lap advantage in order to overtake. See how ferraris were stuck in the beginning, how Hamilton was stuck in the end. In both cases with cars faster than the ones in front.
I do miss refuiling. Tyres last quite a long time now, so one stop strategy is common. We cannot expect showers every qualifying so we can enjoy the race with messed up order.

Once the well matched cars and drivers get together on the track, the overtaking stops, but it has always been thus. If the aero rules can be changed to allow the cars to follow each other more closely then we may get more passing action, but overall it wasn't too bad a race. Shame it didn't rain, as that would have spiced things up. However, its China next, another Herman Tilka design, so set the Skyplus box now and watch the highlights if there are any.

To be honest I considered this race entertaining.

It certainly offered more than was thought for a dry race.

Well done to Vettel and the RBR Team overall.

A good result for Niko also. Well deserved.

So thats 3 dud pit stops Webber has had in 3 races.

Maybe one day the RBR team will give Mark a pit stop as quick as his team mate.

I didnt think the race was boring, but something certainly needs to be done so cars can actually follow each other into and out of corners!

I thought Webber was magnanimous in defeat when he praised Vettel, show's his sportsmanship. Would Alonso have been the same...I doubt it.

I'm sorry but that wasn't a great race, if it hadn't been for the McLarens and Ferrari's been out of position there wouldn't have been precious little to talk about apart from Vettel's move....and that artifical grid was due to the rain spicing things up yesterday...again.

For proper F1 fans, it was interesting. But for the casual viewer, had not there been rain in qualifying yesterday so that we had the spectacle of the McLarens and Ferraris storming up the field, it would have been rather processional.

Remember that the first corner was Vettel-Webber-Rosberg-Kubica-Sutil and that's exactly the order at the finish. So, all the action was from P6 - P12. The purests don't mind this so much, though they'd like more dicing up front, but of course casual viewers demand fighting at the sharp end and without rain in the race, this rarely ever happens.

Thought it was a good race. Great job by Vettel to overtake Webber(and he was gracious at the post race interview). Kubica surprised me in his Renault, as well as the Force India of Sutil. Hammy just couldnt do it but made for some earlier interesting racing. What happened to Petrov? Anyone know, it seems like its a Russian secret! Well done VET! Go get them!

@ Taz.

No mate is was not a great race and yes the qualifying results did add the spice. For a dry race and given what we seen at Bahrain and can probably look forward to at China I will accept this one as good.


Does not appear justified does it. Despite the pit setback Vettel was the better man on the day. Mark will have his.

"proper f1 fans" I read that as beardy train spotters who the whole racing aspect a distraction from the well engineered toy cars. As a casual f1 fan it was a good race. God forbid I turn into a proper f1 fan.
