  1. I think Red Bull is a bit disappointed not to have capitalized on their opportunity to move ahead of Williams today. Toro Rosso on the other hand did a splendid job to move up into 7th.

  2. I agreed with you Magnus. Vettel and Liuzzi have done great jobs!!! It was a great race except if you are LH’s fan

  3. I give credit when it’s due and STR did a great job today, most of the accolades bestowed on Vettel but he ran alone and unchallanged most of the race, Luizzi on the other hand was under pressure from a superior BMW and handed Heidfeld a black eye! Although to be fair, anyone passing anyone in F1 requires an error on the leading drivers part or some special circumstance. Luizzi didn’t err !
