Another great race!

Congrats to Vettel and Hamilton for a tremendous battle at the end and to Button for keeping close enough with the tire strategy to get a podium.

Congrats to Red Bull and McLaren both.

Congrats to Alonso for such a great start and finishing 5th instead of much farther back where he should have.

A lap down for Alonso... lol

acetylene. i think he does. he had immense pressure from a fully fit car, yet still controlled the race. missing kers, the driver has to drive differently, and he adapted.
whilst saying that, i do think that lulu was equal, yet still failed to press home his advantage. he also had a few lock-ups which would do his tyres no good.

ps acetylene, maybe i misread your post. i thought you meant vettel did not deserve drive of the day. but if you meant lulu , i agree. although he was a very close second.

This race was a joke..racing dictated by rules and probably the worst hard compound tire in the history of F1. Pirelli ought to be ashamed to bring such a poor product to F1. Who has the most good tires wins..not who builds the best car..There couldve been 5 cars fighting for the win. Just like 2005, tires will dictate who wins the wdc.

First of all great job by Vettel to drive around the Kers problems and hold off another late race charge of Hamilton. Hamilton still popping off about the RedBull down-force advantage though, getting a little tedious. Feel bad for Alonso after the start he had. But coughing up a second a lap to your rivals in a 66 lap race is not going to be fun and it cost him a full lap.
Now about the tire "situation", the thing you have to remember is that Pirelli were specifically asked to create the tires they have by the FIA and honestly how do you argue with all the passing and lead changes? F1 is much more entertaining now that all of them have to make multiple pit stops, deal with varying fuel load, KERS and DRS. The rules are the same for everyone.
