Don't see how you can say Vettel was all luck today. He fought his way up to 12th with a damaged front wing and the first safety car resulted in him having to pit and do it all over again. He got to 4th on merit which was a great drive, the last safety car was lucky and helped him get 3rd.

@Jonov
Get real watch it again - Webber was clearly in front, he was hit in the rear wheel by Maldonado's front wheel, I wouldn't mind betting he didn't think a pass on the inside of Pastor would be safe?
In the second incident with Massa, Massa slid wide a bit and they touched. Both racing incidents, but to suggest Webber was responsible is ridiculous, Maldonado had room to turn in tighter, he might have some speed, but he still lacck that bit of race craft.
Interestingly Vettel and Button same scenario - Vettel on the outside no different except Button didn't shunt wider. How many times have we seen Webber & Alonso wheel to wheel fighting and not coming to grief through series of corners.
Both Webber & Grosjean then taken out - even bigger penalty. Webber's biggest problem (again) was his start which recently had been pretty good!

Fascinating to watch, thoroughly pleased for Kimi! Yes Seb needed the safety cars, but he drove superbly (can't take that away from him) to be in the right place at the right time. I did think he was getting a bit too hot-headed with the incident with Ricciardo though. Thankfully he calmed down.

WTF is going on with Hamilton's car???? AGAIN???

great drive by kimi and fernando. simply amazing.

yes seb did well to get 3rd but you cant ignore than he made a mess of getting through, hitting to many things. So yes he was lucky.

but his pass on button was good. but that was the only move he really pulled today that was on anyone of note.

The most rated comment here uses the word pussy and people here acting houlier than vettel. he is human. jeeez

I imagine this us a bad day to be a mclaren fangirl. they first shoot themselves in the foot with Lulu's car then Button gets overtaken by Vettel, who leaves him 3.6 seconds off in three laps.hahahaha
