After qualifying I thought it would be another dreary Red Bull walkover. Thank goodness I was wrong!!

I didn't know what to expect from Sutil - he really impressed me with his stints in the lead, he's proved his doubters wrong, that's for sure!

Flawless race by Kimi, congrats to him

Awful race for Macca and Williams...
On the subject, Maldonado appears to have been well and truly shaken by Bottas!

What would Hulk have done had he started?

Lewis did very well for third on the grid and had he not locked up whilst fighting with Alonso he would've mad finishing at least 5th a heck of a lot easier!

Also credit to Bianchi, incident-free yet fast. He's one to watch in the future IMO

interesting race which shows that in race conditions, there are three teams now in the picture. congrats to those on the podium.
but the soft tyres ruined the race. sutil leading and then dropping many places due to lousy softs, a problem that seemed to affect some cars more than others.
but this is just the first of 19 races and anything can happen during the season.

commodore. what was with the booing of vettel on the podium? poor show from any f1 fan to boo anybody who was on the podium. and i thought that ausssies were friendly?

I think that Renault should get more recognition for their job. Since 2003 they are powering teams that managed to win at least one race, excluding the 2007 season. Last year they went better than anyone with Red Bull winning 7 races and both titles with Lotus and Williams winning as well. This year the Renault cars looks even better with Red Bull as the best qualifyers and Lotus maybe being the fastest car on race pace. But I am wondering what the hell happened to Grosjean. He was nowhere today. I don't remember such a difference to Kimi in any race last year. Maybe...I say maybe Raikkonen is getting even better after completing his return last year.

Felipe stayed out a lot longer than Fernando because he told the team he wanted to stay out. It was Felipe's decision, not the team's. They then forced him to come in when they found that he was losing a lot of time.

Booing of a driver on the podium is totally disgusting it's an act of what is termed fanatical one eyed fan boys.
But in all the years I have been following F1 racing the bottom of the disgusting barrel was not only reached but even scratched at Silverstone when Schumacher broke his leg.

You can thank the Damon Hill fanboys for the Silverstone display Sunny.

The other fan shocker was the Spanish "fans" towards Lulu a few years ago, I don't like the guy but that was out of order. Some people need to be reminded that it is still a sport after all is said and done.
