    Force India was great today!

  3. This is getting much more interesting. The Mclaren have overtaken Toro Rosso, Force india have taken down the Williams.
    By the end of the season, I’m expecting force india will be close to ferrari and mclaren will overtake the williams.

  4. Great performance from Force India and also from McLaren after last year’s dismal effort. Red Bull’s P2 might not last long as Ferrari have two clean drivers and Red Bull only has one.

    1. But then Red Bull have a fast car and are doing a decent job running it, while Ferrari is seems to be clueless @ultimateuzair. I guess the rest of the season will show what is more important.

      And I guess Vettel will have to go and apologize to Kimi and Max for not leaving room at the start. Because all three of them know that it WAS his fault for not leaving room.

      1. Vettel clearly thinks otherwise.

  5. So basically, Hamilton exchanged 10pts for 3 engines.

    1. Ridiculous that any driver/team can circumvent the (intentions of the) rules like this.
      And sad for the sport…

      1. “Ridiculous” because other teams wanted it to benefit this rule change, and Mercedes objected to this change about the exact same reason they used it for! They warned this could happen, and they applied this ridiculous rule…

    2. Yes, but the engines going wrong in the first place also cost him points.
