Once again, Ricciardo showing us how bad he is on race day, with Vergne in front of him as usual. Can't believe how overrated this driver is and wonder why all the media are so in love with him . He reminds me of Grosjean last year, who was often quicker than Kimi on one lap but failed on race day.

Amazing drive, those overtakes were pure class. No time wasting.

In other news, who heard Vettel call for Charlie when he failed an overtake on Kimi even though you could fit a bus between them? Absolute joke.

merc gave him the tools this weekend and he used it, red bull and lotus didnt have the straight line speed to get near him on the straights and he managed his race excellently. alonso may be scratching his head for three weeks

Yes we heard Vettel call for Whiting but he did say on the podium with the interview with Brundle that it was just the heat of the moment.

There should be no slating of any drivers on this site as this was great Hungarian race Vettel was unlucky that he got stuck behind Jenson who defended brilliantly against the RB9 and Grosjean was brilliant at times but is still lacking in space awareness , sad really as he has been on the pace all weekend. Lewis's pass on Button and on Webber was race winning passes and was top drawer, but Kimi and Vettels tussle was epic real clash of champions, more of the same guys.

Raikonnen did a great job, especially on the second stint but there are some things to think about for the people that think him moving to red bull should be a wrap. Grosjean has shown up Raikonnen for two races in a row in terms of race pace, although bad strategy cost him at Nurburgring and typical over aggression cost him here, it is something that will be noticed by Red bull.

The other thing to bare in mind is that his inabiity to perform on a saturday will cost him alot more in a Red bull than a Lotus. We saw today how the red bull's lack of straight line speed made it ver difficult to pass button. IF Raikonnen goes to Red bull he cannot afford to be qualifying 6th and 7th. Vettel will have too much of an advantage on him a the start of races whilst Raikonnen will struggle to overtake the Ferrari's Mercedes and Lotus's, and all of this is assuming that he will have Vettel's race pace or better-there is of course the possibility he just wont be as fast as Vettel.

Hope you know Ricciardo had a problem in his first pit stop that cost him over 20 seconds, the fact that he ended up only a second behind vergne means if anything vergne underperformed again.
