Rosberg, even though I am not his greatest fan.

He had a hell of a good day and followed direction even when he very obviously did not want to.

Mercedes does seem to finally be getting their act together.

This was Webber's race all day long. He made the right tire calls, the right timing calls, his pit crew gave him the fastest stops of the day, there's no way anyone can say this wasn't Webber's day and Vettel snaked it from him, in spite of "Multi 21s, Seb," (instructions on the desired finishing order, I'm guessing...2 - 1) which a clearly agitated Webber told him, immediately after the race.

This was 100% Webber's race.

@Taipan - Yes, if by "owning" Webber, you mean passing him at full throttle when Webber had established a gap and then turned down his engines to basically "coast" to the finish line, understanding that Vettel had been told to hold station...multiple times.

Or maybe you're talking about Vettel getting on the radio to tell his team to make Webber get out of the way for him because he was "too slow" as Webber then put about 3-4 seconds on him over the next 2-3 laps.

Rosberg impressed, I think he managed tyres well and definitely managed his fuel better than his team mate. Pity Brawn told him to hold off.

Button managed to capitalise on a lucky qualifying, so its a pity the pitstop let him down. McLaren should probably ditch the lights system.

I thought we were getting a different kind of world champion in vettel, but we have seen of late that BAMBAM, will stop at nothing to win, even putting his car in very in dangerous positions either compromising others racing line or expecting others to yield to avoid an incident he is pure bloody reckless, knowing that his personal safety is guaranteed in these new cars is what is spurring him on. I rally do think that MW should have ran him wide when just before he overtook, but that would have handed the race the Mercs. Its not the way but some guys just wait the turn as Button got revenge for suzuka but allowing vettel to overtake him off the track in German so he got a time penalty. One thing is for sure, their is NO team orders at Red Bull now

Webber, Rosberg and Bianchi all were doing pretty well, the first two great before team order ******** started.

Button was doing better then I expected until entering the McLaren pits.

And bonehead move, would have to be Hamilton (thou in fairness Button did it too, a couple of years back)
