Fantastic driving executing the strategy to perfection. Kimi is definitely going to be a contender this season.

There seemed to be little between the Ferraris and RBR though so this could be a very tight battle over the next few races to see who can adapt to the tyres the best.

Kimi getting confident now that he is on his second season back. Obviously more aggressive now than he was last year at overtaking. No second thoughts about getting past this year.

They had a strategy and it needed to be executed perfectly - and the team did excellently.

Hope this is a good omen for the season for them.

Great race and great job done by Kimi Raikkonen. Alonso was great too. Also massively impressed by Sutil in his return, completely defying expectations there. His end result wasn't representative of what he deserved. Macca have problems. It's now obvious they're not even the 5th fastest car. Force India appear to have jumped them. Button pretty much got the max out of his car and it was only good enough for 9th. Iceman driver of the day though. Imperious drive and loved that little fastest lap at the end just to show everyone else that he always had it in the bag.

One other thing, referencing Taipan's comment, I agree what you said is true. However what this race said to me was Raikkonen and Alonso are still the best drivers. Vettel appears to be a distant third, in my humble opinion of course.
