Great race overall. I can always rely on Webber and Hamilton to show good racing between the fastest cars on the grid (e.g. Korea '11). Today seeing Hamilton pull the move to defend Webber whilst getting ready to pass Perez was a highlight of skill today.

Kind of interesting to see the reigning champion racing with the least experienced newcomer Grosjean, for the whole race.

i am so very pleased for nico and for merc, i congratulate both on their victory. knowing how hard the merc guys have been working they deserve their success and nico performance yesterday and today were superb.

feel bad for schumi, if not for the pit stop error i think it would have been a merc 1-2.

great job by both button and hamilton in the circumstances and one of the best races i've seen for quite a while.

captain. how long have you been following f1?

you say that sebs kers was not working, but how do you know?

then you go on to say that lulu's fans were open but sebs werent? the mind boggles.

trying to decipher what you are talking about, i can only assume that the two posts are actually referring to drs wing. if so, do you not realise that it is only the overtaking car that can avail of drs? seb couldnt use it to defend!

Congrats to Nico Rosberg and Mercedes for the win now its time to party in Shanghai and the McLaren duo of Jenson Button in 2nd and Lewis Hamilton 3rd. This year's Chinese GP was one of the best for me with lots of great track fighting. Nervous moments? Lewis Hamilton and Felipe Massa. It was like an "oh great here we go again!" moment though it was with Sergio Perez and Fernando Alonso sandwiching Lewis was a very close call when the Sauber driver kept braking and flat spotting his worn tires. An admirable effort from Sebastian Vettel but the 2 stop was a risky gamble and Mark Webber lifts off once again. The two drivers I feel sorry for was Michael Schumacher who could have been on the podium if it wasn't for the pit stop fumble and Kimi Raikkonen who also gambled on a 2 stop. Thoroughly enjoy the race. More of these please! :)

@ arcuid

We think alike.

I thought it was a great race by all the competitors
and we need to appreciate that.

Mark with his lift brought back memories of Vallencia.

Rosberg deserved his win. He has done himself and his Dad proud together with the team.

@ ED:

Your vocal mate. Looks like we are in the same boat this year. Hope everthings O.K. Regards to yourself and family.

@Commodore Yes Mark's lift off was reminiscent of Valencia though not in an extreme way. A picture of his Red Bull "airplane," is no doubt circulating on the internet with a slew of jokey captions attached! I just saw one on a Formula One page on Facebook.
