Yes there was the initial shunt.......but what put Hamilton into the wall was Hamilton running over Maldo's front tyre! Watch the replay, there are 2 separate things that happen. The shunt didn't put Hamilton into the wall!

I must say Alonso is really making his strategies work perfectly this year. Maybe a bit of luck too with Vettel dropping out, but very impressive and I'm not a fan.

But tbh, I was just too annoyed with Kobayashi failing to secure good points again, after a great start, I questioned the slow and early pitson and then when Senna closed the door on him, I just cculdn't enjoy the race after that and then I have no clue what happened during the Massa Kobi incident, because we got poor shot of the incident.

After Schumacher, I think Kobayashi is one of the most unlucky drivers this year.

Maldocrackets tried a first lap pass on the penultimate lap end of lh tried hard to stay ahead. The two crucial factors are tyres Waldorf fresh and all the time in the world hamis kana kered. In a late breaking manouver hami was always gonna run deep. Amateur hour again for waldinho. Great drive from alonso unlucky?? Finger growshon.
Mcuseless cost Lewis any chance with another monumental pitstop. Messed up his strategy should have had a 3rd stop and good tyres to the end for a certain podium. The mcawkward is either the5th or 6th best car out there if you're being generous.

Congrats to FA, drove well from way back and kept out of trouble.

McLaren fail again at pit stops. It was terrible. MW has a lot to answer for. LH lost 3 places because of that stop. JB was nowhere in reality.

PM should not have come back so hard onto the track, but LH had brain fade and should have just let him go. His tyres were shot and he has more important things to think about than battling PM for a position.

JEV was completely stupid. Did not need to jink into HK, and then proceeded to drive back to the pits way too fast, left debris everywhere and destroyed his car. I can only hope he learnt something.

Good race, but still not convinced by the circuit.

As for FA stopping on track, I would have thought that providing a fuel sample after the race is more important as that is where points are awarded. FIA thinking and rules a bit wonky here.
