I am an American and I care less about the fanbase and more about success ie. racewins and championships. I believe Seb Vettel thinks the same. He is so much like an American just a lot more handsome :)
BTW he beat Champ car champion Seb Bourdais (whom I cheer as an American) as a teammate.

Congrats Alonso on a perfect drive! Ferrari owes Massa an apology though... Why not pit the 2 cars one behind the other or bring the Brazilian in a lap before?? That was pretty stupid because it not only ruined his race for the rest of the day (being put behind slower cars and destroying his tires by driving on dirty air pretty much the whole race) but it also allowed Alonso's competitors to more points.

It would have been an easy 1-2 for the Team today and a great way to keep Felipe motivated after doing such fine job over the last few races.

Amazing work by Richiardo as well... to bring that Toro Rosso to a 7th position deserves my respect!

@Oldmosis - "Great drive by Alonso, Raikkonen, Hamilton and Vettel. "

Another sad Button hater.

Button drove great today. To get 5th in that McLaren is the mark of a great racing driver. Deal with it!

Well done Fernando. However, I cannot figure out Felipe Massa. He was pushing Alonso at the start of the race and then, like so many times before, his race is ruined by poor strategies and/or poor performance.
How does one explain that Alonso had no problem passing Vettel on at least 2 occasions and Vettel had no prolem passing Felipe?
Is it time for Rob Smedley to go! If I were Felipe, I would insist upon it.

Didn't someone here said Karma is a bitxh.... guess Mark got bitten today. No world class corporation would tolerate their employee dragging internal problems out to the public the way he did, especially coming from a middle aged man.

Today's crash is typical of what Helmut Marco revealed about Mark. Poor Vergne, he may have gotten a point here if Mark had not crashed into him. As usual Mark blame others.

Let's hope the stewards clears Kimi and his 2nd place stays.

Good race by Alonso and Hamilton, would have been more interesting if the tyres didn't fall apart so soon.

@ Wiseguy - I doubt it somehow, Rob has stuck with Massa through thick and thin when everyone was saying Massa should lose his seat last year (including 90% of this forum).

'What would have happen if Vettel had ran into Webber's loose Tyre!'

Well it could have hit him on the head and he could've died. Which surely even those that dislike Vettel don't want to see happen. I was surprised to that DC was jokingly speculating on the timing of the wheel come off.

He should know that a loose tyre on track is extremely dangerous.
