Great drive by Paul today. He was a but clumsy into the first corner but recovered the race well.

I think that is the most impressive drive he has produced all year and a drive that we have all been expecting to see from him all season.

He pulled off some great overtaking manoeuvres & defended very well from cars on fresher tires.

Hopefully we'll see more drives like that from him over the last two races.

I'm very disappointed with Webber and the way he drove the rbr sister car, if vettel can go from last to third why can't webber Atleast maintain the position he's in off the starting grid?

you would think with his history of horrible launches he would learn how to properly launch...very sad and disturbing, then when vettel finally caught the Aussie and the rbr team didn't call webber into the pits and would rather have another tangle, very poor effort from the team this weekend, but thankfully vettel is chalk full of talent and managed to get on the podium regardless of how ridiculous his team performed!

All the passes vettel managed left me in shock that he did not dnf, very patient with his car, and the first time I've seen a driver illegally pass and give the spot back. Good stuff and extremely professional, its awesome to see how far vettel has come from 2009! He will truely set the record books on fire in the coming decade.

Did anyone see the post race hiccup with the F word?

F1VET - just to point out Vettel was geared for the race and the safety cars worked out in his favour.

Webber didn't drive particularly great, but the reason Vettel was able to pass people with relative ease is he had more top speed for the straights. Also you have to recognise they pitted Webber to get him out of the way of Vettel, but that compromised Webbers strategy as he got stuck in more traffic which he may have avoided if he had stayed out longer.

good race? after perez, he was the most culpable for that crash. he also squeezed hulk at the beginning. lucky to have finished and not being penalised.
