    1. that 12th place fo lotus will be crucial

    2. Mark Webber owes F1 a DNF!

      1. And Fernando Alonso owes everyone on the grid six points.

      2. Remember VALENCIA ?

        1. ok, but that was a DNF from the back of the grid. i think Webber owes F1 a DNF whilst running in the top 3!!!

      3. In opposite world perhaps…the man has had 47 retirements in his career including 11 in 2006 out of 18 starts. I think he has had his fair share, most mechanical failures.

      4. na I don’t think Webber owes F1 a DNF, I’m pretty sure he gave them more than enough DNF’s in years gone by

    3. So unlucky for Kubica :(((
      This would’ve been a very different race.

      1. No Kidding. Gutted for him. Also the championship would be tighter if he had held 2nd.

    4. Vettel did the lead from pole, drive away a bit and win it without any need for overtaking again. Only they were not that far away.

      Sutil did a great job to save the car after that spin in 130R and Liuzzi was very unlucky to get speared of by Massa.

      The start was interesting, but completely missed by the FOM cameras. After that the only interesting part was a try from Schumi on Rosberg, Trulli and Glock getting past Sakon and then a lot of great overtakes from Kobayashi to save us from boredom.

      I just heard Hamilton did only drive upwards from 3rd gear in the last 20 laps, so that makes it a pretty good job from him.

      1. Reminiscent of Alonso driving the entire race in Malaysia without a clutch.

          ’94 Spanish Grand Prix, anyone?

          1. That’s what I thought…. Only Schumacher still won that!

            1. Only if by winning you mean “came second.” :P

        2. driving without a clutch is okay if u can match the revs of each gear. driving without a gear is just bad luck!

        3. Alonso had all the gears. He only had problems to get them in. Yesterday Ham was very unlucky because it was easy to drive but going from 2nd to 4th gave him a little acceleration leaving turns. That’s very difficult to keep your position.

          1. According to Whitmarsh he wasn’t even able to do that – he was only using fourth and higher.

    5. I have to say, I disagree with Martin Brundle on the Petrov incident. The overhead shot clearly shows that there was a wall of cars in front of him, and he didn’t have anywhere else to go. If anyone should have backed off, it was Nico Hulkenberg, who got the worst start nd should have spotted the situation unfolding.

      1. I don’t think Vitaly was a maniac or anything and I’m not the Hulk’s biggest fan bt I doubt he knew what was happening until he got hit. Plus, he was in his space from the beginning he shouldn’t have had to yield in my opinion but if he had they’d both have had a better day.

      2. Nah, how about, if that was true Petrov eased off. I’ve watched in many times, he cut across to early his fault.

    6. great drive from SCHUMI and KAMUI!!!
