Pity Webber couldn't of cleared Grosjean faster, would've been entertaining.

Great day for Renault engines. Hulk still sniffing around with the big boys.

Lulu ruining his own race, quite surprised he didn't blame the team. Shame for Ricciardo I thought he had the pass already completed before he went off but I guess not.

Yeah Rou I think Ricciardo was slightly in front. But he didn't turn in on the racing line because he knew Sutil was there, I think it was just a small error, but he was trying to safe. A more experienced driver may have been able to hang it around the outside and still be in front at the chicane.

Good race, lots of squeezing at the start, fantastic start from Grosjean. Shame the Lotus couldn't match the Bulls in the middle of the race.

Hamilton had a good start too, just got tagged when Vettel had to give room for Grosjean.

Hulk again splendid, nice to see both Saubers in the points.

Hamilton had a great start, but just couldn't resist the urge to chop Vettel who had nowhere to go to avoid Lewis' overly aggressive move. If Lewis had a fraction more patience, this race could have been very significantly different. But we're used to this by now.

Great race from Grosjean. Too bad he couldn't maintain the pace at the end.

I don't think Hamilton tried to chop anyone, just the squeeze into the first corner with 4 drivers trying to get onto one line. The design of the front wings mean ANY contact destroys the tyres, look at Perez and Rosberg late on in the race.

Well done to RBR, GroJo keeps getting better, Great result for Sauber and well done to Gutierrez.

Not the greatest Suzuka race but not bad.

I'll need Lulu to tweet some pics of the damage to his car to prove that he didn't just give up, again.

i feel for webber.. really the team had to put him on the three stop.. and for hulkenberg deserves a better drive!!
As for daniel a bit harsh for him too thought was cool how he kept the gas on even while running wide!! can't wait to see what he does next year!

Actually, upon further review, it appears that Webber made a fairly abrupt move that pushed Hamilton into Vettel, not so much Lewis "chopping" Vettel. My apologies to Lews and his fans.
