Crash.net, it was not a "dominant" win, both Vettel and Button were under a second of him at some stage. It was a well-driven, controlled win from what was not the fastest car.

Clearly, a dominant win from pole. No one came close to challenging for the win. I assume Vettel will lose his 2nd position to Button. Obviously, Alonso is the best driver in F1 today. I see that the Old Hamilton is back, on form.

"The Old Hamilton"? Was it his fault, the puncture? Or maybe should he have stayed behind Vettel, who was slowing him down? Meh, meh, meh.

Actually, Race Direction should have deployed the Security Car and clean the track. It was very lucky that Hamilton was the only driver to suffer a pucture. Tough luck for Hamilton, but that's racing too.

Now over a race win clear of Vettel in Ferrari's LEGO race car. Close to the end McLaren told JB that he was in prime position to challenge for the win, Alonso and Stella had a chat and Fernando put in three laps in the 1min 19s range (compared to Buttons late 1min 20 early 21s, the job was done, watching Fernando this year has been magic, and he appears to be getting even better, the Ferrari may have been the third or even possibly fourth quickest car today.

@blubz...Third or fourth quickest? Naaah, make that 10th quickest car.

While we are concocting facts, why not also that Ferrari eats its tyres in 5 laps, that it is the most difficult machine to drive, and that it is the slowest car in the rain with the worst grip on wet track.....and with this you would have inflated Alonso to the best driver of all times and Ferrari's multimillion funded great engineer brains to a status below a croc brain size.

while Alonso maintains this BS over not having a quick car, he'd be glad to know that you are carrying on his legacy in the outer world!

This is a crucial stage of the season. Alonso will be looking to win again in Budapest next weekend. - and strike a psychological blow against his rivals over the summer break. He will head into the final phase with supreme confidence and attempt to win the first race back. Then a series of second and third places will ensure him the WDC. I know there's a long way to go, but it's a possibility. The others need to strike back and fast!

The fact that the f2012 is now one of the top three cars (they are pretty even IMO), does not mean that the work that FA did till this point (with that crap of a car at the start of the season) wouldn't have been awesome. FA managed to win and get good results with a **** of a car in comparison with the field, full stop. Ferrari said that they needed to improve the car a lot and that is what they have done and FA has said many times at different moments in time that the car was improving more and more. McLaren didn't managed to do it, and as I said, IMO, now RedBull McLaren and Ferrari are more or less at the same level, you could even argue that the McLaren have not been very consistent and it's performance change a lot depending on the circumstances.
