Fantastic race. Congrats to McLaren, looks like they have a great package. Same for RedBull. Think they will fight it out this year and it's going to be awesome. Well done to Kimi, Sergio and even Fernando. The Ferrari looks like a dog so FA did what Massa couldn't. Maldonado hitting Grosjean, well, not nice. Have to say though the Williams is massively improved. Just wonder what Rubens would have done with it. Let's not forget young Daniel Ricciardo, after a horror start, he drove superbly. All in all, a great start to the season, I enjoyed it.

The McLaren team keep making mistakes in timing the cars in the pits.
They did it last year, and they started again but,
Terrific drive by Button,if you give him an inch he will take your arm.
Good drive by Seb.
Terrible Ferrari

Well done to Button for a great race. My driver of the day from lower in the field would be Perez (P8 from last on the grid). Maldonaldo would have been up there too if not for the last lap DNF.

It's good to see all 4 drivers, Button, Vettel, Hamilton and Webber so close at the end. Let's hope we can add the Merc and Lotus drivers to the mix in the upcoming races and we'll have a great season!

I'm not sure the McLaren dual pit stop was a mistake, granted it was risky but no-one expected a safety car and you can't strategize based on the premise that there could be a safety car else you'll never pit. I think Hamilton was just unlucky (not saying Vettel was gifted anything but just Hamilton was unlucky).

There is defenitely a conspirasy against Lewis. He is quickest McLaren driver and can beat Button any day. Must be his team try to delibretly make him behind Button. Lewis will win championship easy this year if his team dont try and stop him like in this race. Its not fair.
