    Well, I'm off for lunch. Thanks as usual to the GTP guys for the company and the commentary. Great job HAM, ALO and MAS. We've got a hell of a race coming up at Interlagos!

    Amazingly, McLaren managed to get two cars to the finish.

    Seriously, I thought that was a great drive from Lewis. I was a bit surprised not to see him shake off Vettel, but maybe he was doing the bare minimum.

    Held up? That's called defensive driving, Vettel did a great job of it for 40 odd laps.

    They're fail for me.

    I'd love a Russian to win a Grand Prix, so we could hear the greatest national anthem in the world on the podium.

    I don't know what was the stupidest thing on that podium - the hats or Rick Perry.

    Don't get me wrong, Hamilton was right behind him or the majority of it and got the drs on every lap, but he was never close enough to do anything about it and seb opened the gap out in the last sector every time. Enter karthikeyan and Hamilton is closer than he'd been at any point in the race going into the drs zone.

    I'd be willing to bet that had karthikeyan not been there, vettel would be on the top step right now.

    Running an F1 fantasy game and I decided to award double points to selections..... I was the only one who picked Hamilton :guilty:. Now I have a 117 point lead :nervous:.

    Hush now, Vettel is a bad driver and has always been. Even his wins in the Formel BMW were down to his superior car.

    :lol:

    Teflonso gets the biggest pop from the crowd. No surprise.

    For me he was too much conservative and with the car that he has he should,or maybe,had to win with big led!I'm really very disappointed with Vettel this time!he failed under pressure :tdown:

    Mate, you'd be better off with 'Seb could do better but there was no point challenging Hamilton back for the lead' ;)

    And Alonso's car has square wheels and a 50cc moped engine.

    I have no idea what you're getting at. You're just overlooking the facts.

    How do you know he was conservative, exactly? Do you work for Red Bull and know he wasn't pushing as hard as possible? He hardly failed under pressure, he made no mistakes, he just got passed by a faster car with DRS. That isn't failing under pressure, Canada 2011 is failing under pressure.

    Well... wow.

    Great race - at least 9,571,287% better than I was expecting. And the driver of the day was... everyone except Nico Rosberg.

    Everyone (except Nico Rosberg) made that a great race - even the two retirees. Really good racing, lots of (clean) overtaking... Really good stuff.

    Again, what's with the faster car talk?

    Seb had the faster car.
