For me the Renault Drivers and team. KR never ceases to amaze me with his racecraft and speed, RG is Mr Gung-Ho, the Ying to KR's Yang, and Renault appeared to make the verybest use of what they had at their disposal, overcoming recent strategy lashups.

Romain Grosjean for showing how to really race and maintaining his position (and fighting for it). For the 'tragedy' of the stupid penalty then handed down to him, if drivers are instructed to stick behind one another and not 'race' we may as well watch paint dry. I'll be keeping a keen eye on him and even hope he gets the Red Bull drive next year.

Got to be the driver who did not think his pole lap was good enough to beat the dominant RB9 on the Saturday and who then went on to put race winning passes on the quicker RB9 twice and the 2009 WDC to win a race that he should not havewon.

I remember talk of him needing half a lap start to have a chance of winning. LMFAO

Hamilton obviously drove a great race but was really unthreatened as his opposition got unlucky/took themselves out. The Mercedes' superior top speed was definitely a huge boon in overtaking on this track.
I also heard him say that Button did him a favor, making it sound like Button more or less let him pass? I dunno.

Vettel drove his first "bad" race of the season. The Red Bulls lack of straight-line speed obviously made overtaking near impossible, and while he finally got the pass on the much slower Button, he broke his front wing in the process(they never actually showed the pass on the broadcast I was watching so I don't know how it happened, but from his comments after the race it seemed like it was his own fault.) Couple that with a stupidly late pit and what seemed like another KERS problem and I'm quite impressed he even managed third. Great seeing him and Kimi go at it at the end of the race though!

Overall, the one that impressed me most was Kimi, who had a great Sunday, n

Certainly Hamilton, he executed a difficult game plan to perfection. A good start on the dirty side of the track, escaping the DRS zone, managing tires and not letting the slow-pokes hinder his progress led to a well deserved race win. Kudos also to Kimi (making his tire strategy work for a 2nd), Jenson (giving it the good fight for position) and Grosjean (pure entertainment value). A very enjoyable race!
