Williams could have had a big points haul. I suppose FW must be happy the car is fast but may rue the missed points if other teams improve.

Seems like his aggression levels were just a bit beyond his talents in several situations. Unfortunately, Grosjean paid the price for one of those mistakes. Maybe this was where karma evened it out, after the stewards wouldn't. But other than those couple of mistakes, he looked pretty quick and I wouldn't be surprised if he found his way to the podium once or twice this season when an accident thins out some of the frontrunners.

His incident with Grosjean reminded me a little of Button and Alonso in Canada last year, as for the last lap shunt, he fluffed his lines. Rubens was on twitter this weekend saying that this weekend revealed who had done there homework, he singled out Mercedes as doing a great job, but no mention of his most recent F1 employers.

Another day of destruction by the Prince of Destruction, can he rotate without hitting anything?

Looks good for Williams though, guess I have to eat a big slice of humble pie for an earlier comment! The cars are really much improved.

i was suprised by pastor today, pleasently so. Shame about the last lap and was clumsy with romain, but he drove a superb race, and was unlucky to get over exited and bin it. Seems whenever hes running 6th, he bins it in the dying stages. Williams are scaring lotus, mercedes and ferrari this year...hope they have the budget and technical team to keep it up. Would love to see the williams' back in the top 3. One of the closest seasons i predict with mclaren on top, then red bull, mercedes, lotus, williams and ferrari all seperated by very few tenths.

I don't know what it is, but I just don't like Maldonado. He's fast "for sure". But drives like he's still in GP2. Running Grosjean off the track was an utter disgrace. He's a dirty driver. I don't mind drivers pushing it to the limit, but he goes over the top.
