True! The Ferrari looked very fast on long runs today, though I would have liked to see Kimi's true pace without the damage to the nose. He clearly began to gap Lewis once Seb was closing in, indicating he had more speed in reserve, though probably not enough for the Ferrari. I don't like these tires. It was refreshing to see Fernando and Vettel putting in quick laps at the end when they no longer needed to conserve rubber. Hopefully the wear tolerance will increase and we can see racing that explores the cars' true limits.

I'm sure some people are still hurting as we speak after seeing Hamilton pass Button with relative easy twice in the race. Button, who never called his bosses to seek permission (he really need permission?) to fight Alonso or Vettel when they came across to pass him, did so as soon as he saw Hamilton in his mirrors. And the team's response? "Yes. Fight". My question is why don't they give him the weapons he need to fight? Or are they saying to Button that the weapon is there and it's up to you to maximize its performance?
I just laughted out my (censured) throughout the lap that a turtle tried to keep a faster hare behind him.

@Ben
It is crystal clear how Hamilton's former team hated to see him whiz by.Whitmarsh would have loved to hold him back,but couldn't.Remember the comment,some teams we will be fighting?That was Button in reference to Hamiliton.And we all saw the quixotic act.Haaa..Yes,fight.Button to the charge!!!!

Thank goodness Seb didn't follow team orders last week...... or he would now only have 49 points and be four points behind Kimmi..................as much as I respect and admire Kimmi, Seb's still my favorite.
