'...leave me alone I know what i'm doing!' - Priceless.

What a fantastic result for Kimi, I'm so pleased for him.
Also a brilliant drive by Vettel.
Ferrari and Alonso must be slightly miffed that they only gained 3 points on Vettel.

Great race from Kimi, not the fastest car but the two drivers who could have beaten him today (Vettel and Hamilton) were hit by trouble and he drove a perfect race. Looks like 3rd place in the championship is pretty certain now which is a great result considering the strength of the car.

This was a reminder to every F1 fan of why they follow this sport. What a rollercoaster!

F1 has been awfully satisfying to fans lately. And this race was just superb. I remember saying around the turn of the century that I only wished F1 was half as exciting as MotoGP. My, how things have changed for the better in what F1 is concerned.

A big thanks to all the guys that brought us this amazing race. And may the best man win!

Kimi is good but he needs to understand he can't win a race without info from his team. Let's see in the next race if he can do a pit stop by himself if he knows what he is doing.
Gutted though for LH. That was his race.
