To be fair, Perez had a good race with a few exceptions. His 2 moves off the track to defend against Button in the opening laps was silly, but at least it was addressed.

His moves in Button and Alonso were great, but the move on Kimi was stupid.

You can't just let the brakes off 50 yards too early and just banzai it down the inside and expect everyone to get out of the way. That's not smart or talented overtaking - especially when he wouldn't have made the corner anyway.

You could see he was going to have an accident all afternoon and sure enough he didn't disappoint!

Rosberg was phenomenal todays hats off

racing was really boring i think there must of been 10 overtakes in totall

i dont understand why lewis finished 4th and blame the team aswell as him. why the team told him 6 second and why he listened i dont know ! it takes 3 seconds on average for a pit stop , so why not be 3 seconds behind wtf ? as soon as nico is leaving the pitbox lewis should of been entering , he should realised that as well as team , mercedes had a chance for a 1-2 and through it away

backwards taipan. the team did not tell lulu to slow down. nico had enough space to clear the pits before lulu arrived. brawn himself confirmed that they did not tell lulu to slow down and did not know what delayed him, saying they would have to look at telemetry. is it possible that lulu , off camera, had a small moment?

westy. that's funny.... I clearly heard brawn saying that no instruction had been given to lulu, and that he should have come in on time. so who do I believe? brawn or you? frankly, I am drawn to the team manager, who actually knows what is going on.

@Richard

I watched the sky coverage and it was said he was instructed to be 6 seconds behind Nico, but how can you gauge that as driver as Damon hill pointed out

Sky did a analysis and showed Lewis at the chicane(where perez and raikonen had a collision) and he was about 3 seconds behind Rosberg and showed were Vettel was, mentioned the instructions of 6 seconds and the sped up the footage and showed lewis driving really slowly and Vettel flooring it , they then showed Rosberg pitting and like 9 seconds later Lewis coming in ?

Mercedes are so stupid they are suppose to have the master tactician Brawn in the team and they make a school boy mistake , would it not of made more sense to tell lewis to catch up to Rosberg and do a back to back pit stop, there by eliminating any mistake occurring?
Lewis also didn't realise that he should be right on Rosbergs back , or even question the team, these days drivers don't really think.

This is the difference between wining and loosing, bein

backwards taipan. I did not see the analysis, but I did hear brawns comment, and it was also on the rerun. so was brawn lying? did anyone hear lulu being given a 6 sec instruction? brawn said that they could even have stacked him
