  1. Despite the stupid penalties Maldonado had pretty impressive weekend.

    1. I’m not sure he’s sure of his point just yet.

      1. I think he is, he was 9th in the finish-line and 10th after the 5 second penalty was added.

        1. @diceman He might get bumped back up to 9th yet. I’ll be shocked if Vergne doesn’t get a penalty for that hideous excuse of an overtaking manoeuvre he pulled on Grosjean.

  2. Only reliability can take the title from Hamilton anymore. Boring end to an amazing championship?

    Pretty good drive by Maldonado indeed.

  3. Massa should have been third and Sutil should have been 10th

    1. Clinton should have been president.

      1. He was… :)

  4. Alonso has an inferior car to Vettel, 2 DNFs… but still the same amount of points as Vettel! I think that shows how strong ALO is!

    1. Yeah, I don’t know what Mattiachi was thinking saying that he wasn’t in the business of keeping Alonso happy and then taking the slower of the two RedBull drivers over the Spanjiard…. That’s utterly terrible management imho.

    2. Vettel’s had 3 DNFs and a bunch of quali technical failures, I don’t see your point.

      1. I don’t agree with him, but ALO had 2 DNFs too. You should consider that too.

        1. 2 Drivers, 6 WDCs and they are no-where, so this proves ?

          1. That it’s all about the car in the end!

  5. A good race. And still Rosberg is yet to beat Hamilton in an even and fair race.
    I just pray it isn’t settled on double points in Rosbergs favour.

    As for the others, Lotus did surprisingly well – but what happened to Bottas?

    1. 10-4 in terms of wins now. Only an moron could argue that the title should go to anyone other than Lewis.

    2. @sham, I think both Williams faded a bit after 1st stint, not sure if the were again waiting for RIC’s tyres to go at the end or what, but once he was close, then passed, they seemed to have no answer.

  6. Outstanding from Hamilton. What can you say? Simply superb.

    1. Totally agree. I thought losing pole, starting on dirty side of the grid and having to follow though the slalom of corners in the first sector in turbulent air would cause his tyres to fall off first and gift rosberg the win. Shows what I know. Great drive by HAM

  7. It’s an interesting case to make for Rosberg deserving the championship now!

    1. Well, statistics show he has most poles this season, so one might argue that he has shown he has ultimately the best speed! I wouldn’t quite agree, but over one lap he is certainly making it a fight. Hamilton seems to be the better racer though (possibly more experience fighting in top teams?).

  8. Hamilton can follow Nico home in the remaining races and still take the championship. If he is smart he’ll go into component mileage conservation mode when he only needs a pair of second places.

    1. There is no guarantee with machines.

    Call it sad, but I was expecting Sutil to crash out in the race

  10. Rosberg has been slower all the year except Austria where HAM made his mistake.
    This guy doesn’t even deserve the Merc seat.

    1. Rosberg reminds me of Ralph Schumacher. Very fast but an unknown quantity when it comes to close wheel racing.

    2. Four wins and ten seconds, and you think he doesn’t deserve the seat? OK…

      1. And of course not forgetting Rosberg has more pole positions.

    3. You are quite silly…

  11. Weren’t they supposed to put a safety-car out if there was any damage to the astroturf?

    The FIA not doing what they said they would do, how strange …

    1. That was the rule after when Jules Bianchi had that massive crash. To me watching it live on FTA in Australia that it looked very dangerous by leaving HUL car sitting there

  12. Deja vu: Rosberg leads by 2.5 seconds, Hamilton closes in quickly after a pitstop, makes a rather easy overtaking move and dominates the rest of the race.

    1. Is it just me or is Hamilton more at ease with the prime tyres?

      1. Hamilton is more at ease in general. It’s a fallacy that Ham is this easily flustered guy who can’t handle pressure. Rosberg on the other hand…

        1. Exactly. The one who has showed great mental strength this season is Hamilton after playing catch-up for most of it through misfortune. Rosberg has crumbled since Belgium.

  13. How Williams closed their eyes and let Ricciardo snatch a podium from Massa.

    1. Lost it in the pits.

      1. Yes indeed they did. But I guess they got greedy trying to get Bottas to undercut Ricciardo leaving Massa with a marginal gap eventually. Pit stops are not always guaranteed to be slick.

  14. I can’t believe Kimi finished 13th.

    1. He doesn’t appear to have the fight anymore. He should retire.

  15. Rosberg always gains 1.5 to 2s after the pits when he is leading and then Hamilton comes back taking big chunks of this advantage off.

    If there’s one thing Rosberg needs to work to step up his game is this first laps on harder tyres. Hamilton is faster overall, but on this specific situation he is on a league of his own. If we still had refuelling, it would be child’s play to defeat Rosberg.

    1. how is finishing 3 sec ahead of your teamate a ‘league of his own’ vettel finishing 20seconds or more ahead of webber, is a league of his own. hamilton has driven really well since spa but the championship has become a big anticlimax as a result. hamilton has won it im quite sure of that. just hope next year merces are pushed and cant get away with running in the lowest engine modes all season long.

      1. I meant that in how he manages to get all from the tyres right from the bat compared to Rosberg who always take some time to it and lost at least 2 races during that.

        And OF COURSE i said “league of his own” comparing just to Rosberg as the other guys don’t drive a W05.

        1. There will always be league of its own if both have trouble free race to 1,2, because one of them has to win…If it is not a dead heat…

      2. In F1 if you can be consistently 0.05 seconds faster than your team mate every lap, you can be considered to be in a league of your own. The cars have a performance ceiling and you can’t expect identical cars and top rated drivers to be miles apart.

  16. I think 9th and 10th position will stay as they finished in the race after all.
