"who is going to be dumb enough to get into that seat?"

V.Rossi? It's not like his rep could fall any further...

Button drove like a champion, doing exactly what he had to and no more.

Perez and Maldonado both put in tremendous performances, hope they keep it up over the season and their respective teams can maintain development pace.

If Kimi gets his Quali act together the Lotus duo have potential to be spoilers.

Webber needs his starts sorted (again) to be in the hunt as his driving looked good. Seb needs to up his focus at Quali but is otherwise right there, I suspect he won't make that mistake again.

I started as a sceptic. No way was I buying sky sports to what more of the same lame racing.

Then it turns out I get it for no additional cost as a sky HD customer.

The coverage even surpasses eurosport's motogp which is high praise indeed.

Driver of the day - Jenson Button. Boringly peerless performance. He has that almost-laughing smile on his face that says 'looks like I've fallen on my feet - AGAIN' and I reckon he'll be 2012 WDC

Highly commended - Maldonado, Perez, Raikkonen in that order.

Frustration of the weekend - Sky's coverage was very comprehensive but a bit 'flat', especially the race commentary, where BBC's Ben Edwards wiped the floor with the opposition - the best commentary since Murray Walker IMO

The top 5 drivers of the race where:

1) Jenson Button: He drove a perfect race and andno one could match him, not even Hamilton.
2) Kimi Raikkonen: 17th - 7th was a brilliant drive by someone that hasn't raced in over 2 years.
3) Fernando Alonso: Dragged that heap of junk Ferrari up to 5th while Massa couldn't get close to the points.
4) Kamui Kobayashi: Raced with determination and great race craft and was fast all weeken just made a small mistake in Q2.
5) Daniel Ricciado: He was last after the first lap after colliding with Senna and he battled back to get 9th.

Those were the 5 stars of the race in my opinion!

I do find it funny that whenever Hammi wins it's because of how talented he is, but whenever others win it's the car or luck. Take Button for example. He's a great talented driver but because it wasn't Lulu winning it's because of the car or whatever. All lulu fans are babies just like he was on the podium. Kimi was fantastic and so was Pastor, Sergio, and Ricciardo. I think Senna got screwed a little out of a potentially good decent race when he got hit right form the start. We'll see either way I think this is going to be aGREAT season for all. Williams shows great promise already. Let's go Williams!! Been a fan of you going back to the 80's. Bring back that form!!!!
