Great race by Kobayashi to score a point after starting dead last. OK, not as good as MW's 18th to 3rd, but he hasn't got such a dominant car, or as many spare sets of tyres as MW did..

Great win by Vettel. Never looked like not winning, very dominant performance by Red Bull. One thing I did notice though. Vettels pit stops were around the 3.1 to 3.4 second stationary, whereas Webbers were considerably slower. Is it his side of the garage that is that much slower?
