I don't know about all that. All I know is this race was turned upside down with the accident at the first corner. Without that incident it's highly doubtful Vettel would've even made it on to the podium.

According to Alonso, We lost a bit of the advantage we had over Vettel, Webber and Raikkonen, but we have lost nothing to Lulu who, given how the mclaren went, is possibly our most dangerous rival.

Interesting that Vettel on the radio insisted on being brought in for an early tyre change due to traffic, yet they brought Webber in instead. Vettel had passed Webber (agressively) in the second part he turned "at" Webber briefly to force him to back out or collide. To that point it had been a textbook move, but having watched it a few times to be sure it wasn't "team oriented". Other than that corner it seems that the Redbulls had no where else they could effectively pass. Both tried repeatedly on straights, but just too slow. Without 5 place grid penalty Webber should/could have been on podium.

@ cknopp Maybe, but u have to remember the more cars on the track cuts down your chances of getting a better result. Alonso, Hamilton, & Grosjean all qualified ahead of Vettel. His chances of making the podium wouldn't have been very good.

As for Vettel which is clearly very happy that strategy favors him and left Mark Webber trailing the Ferrari, wtf is Redbull doing, how can Mark finish behind him when Mark clearly qualified better without the gearbox penalty. Is Vettel making miracles happen, I think not, its Horner who is making miracles happen for the golden boy, why was Mark called in and not Vettel, if they split the strategy, then why give the favourable strategy to Vettel when he is behind the championship points.
