Quite easily Vettel. No one has been able to touch him for the past three races but obviously we all know he was very unfortunate in Korea. Excellent drive and fully deserved, there?s no way the team would take such a win away from him, they did the right thing.

Vettel was dominant and bullet proof like the two races (The car just gave up in Korea), but i had to take H???lkenberg.

He got me up of my chair in qualifying and I was shouting in disbelief at what he had just managed to pull off. And when he got up to speed (after the Red Bulls got past) he was very good and mature defending Alonso and a very aggressive Hamilton. That was just amazing.

I have to choose Alonso. He maximized his position and did exactly what he needed to do in the race without as single puff of tire smoke the whole day. His working over H???lkenberg was a clinic, and his similar dispatch of his arch rival was as masterful as it was painful for me to watch.

Rate the race: Brazilian Grand Prix – Your verdict on the race:

Awful. From my favourite track, with a interesting pole sitter. Red Bulls did there usual domination thing, Vettel was as boring to watch as ever, Mark didn?t get a chance to challenge him. Safety car which should have added so much excitement completely failed too.

The backmarkers were weaved among the top five, instantly spreading them out at the restart and denying a chance to see a proper fight.

Whatever happened to the rule that allowed backmarkers to unlap themselves?
