At least they didn't throw a Safety Car out to bring you back to the field. Anyone else hear that Marko and Vettel think that it was an open wheel Nascar yellow?? Might have been as F1 has always allowed carbon fiber to remain on track. In addition did anyone see the three safety workers pushing Sebs car to a safe area. All the while Cars are flying by. Talk about a dangerous situation. It boggles the mind that the yellow was issued for debris and none for the 3 humans risking their lives.

Except for the arrogant comment he made about Alonso after the Alonso won the Malaysian GP, saying he was not worried about Alonso because he was driving a Ferrari!, I think Jenson is a decent guy. Unfortunately, I think he knows deep down that he is out of the WDC race this year. They just cant afford to have too many DNFs or non point scoring races. If Seb and Hamilton dont finish ahead of Alonso or pull a big win to recover points from Ferrari, I think Alonso might just win the WDC this year...

Yet another poor performance, you can't rely on luck. Alonso qualified 11th and won the race in what is believed to be a sub-standard car so it can be done. Button has lost the plot and together with yet another pitstop problem and a less than competitive car McClaren and Button in particular have a mountain to climb. My money is on Alonso who always makes the best of what he has. Only chink in that point of view is the pace of Vettle before his problems. Have Red Bull made a big leap in performance or was it a one off?

Button has stopped complaining about grip, which suggests that the car is now working for him. He is not going to get worried about his skill or his luck as much as he did about setup, so I'm now expecting better results from him.

JB just can't seem to perform unless everything is perfect for him. If the car isn't just so he doesn't qualify well and ends up mid pack. Then he struggles with all the niggles every other driver seems to drive round. His performance relative to LuLu is really disappointing, the McLaren is quite obviously capable of winning but arguably, the most professional team in the paddock can't set it up properly, quite apart from their horrendous tyre changing record both JB and LuLu have been subjected to. Although JB isn't performing as well as he should the problems all seem to point to one guy, Martin Whitmarsh, personally I would have been apoplectic following following the race and would have let the team know via the media that I was pissed off with them but Whitmarsh just smiles and gives the corporate talk. But then I guess that's why I don't run an F1 team.....that's dying a painful death this season!
