    Wow, I must be the only 1 who thought the race sucked...

    must have been 30 safety car laps,... and another 15 with local yellows...

    ridiculous number of crashes.

    And don't get me started on DRS... lets see... if you are within 1 sec you get a 12mph boost for damn near half the lap... gee how's that going to turn out.

    I hated this one. worst race of the year AFAIAC. :(

    Race of the year definentely.

    Button going from 21 to win it impressive.

    Vettel is human. Would have won it if not for the safety car at the end?

    Vettel is not doubt a very good driver, but I think the car is making him look a little better than he is... Put Alonso in the RBR7 and see how he dominates.

    Is it just me or does it seem like the Ferrari pit crew isn't quite as fast as the others

    Just because he lost the rear on worn tires? Look at the massive advantage he built after every restart. He made the mistake of cruising on the last laps, then had to push hard on very treacherous driving conditions (slick tires surrounded by wet track). At least you should admit he's better than you, right? :D

    Hey gang, where can we find out about the final announcement from the stewards? Thx.

    Qualify first and maintain the lead; not a mark of a good driver, just a fast car. Yes, he's good, but he isn't that good.

    Crud! Missed most of the race - had it recorded on DVR.

    Hopefully the Tuesday repeat will play the whole race through. :(

    Without a doubt one of the most interesting races in F1 I have ever seen.

    *Yes DRS allows artificial overtaking.
    *Yes the safety car was out a huge number of laps.
    *Yes it was still Vettel in the lead for 69 of 70 laps.

    But who cares when you have a race as incredibly exciting as this? It had as much action as some seasons of F1 in the past.

    Yeah he finished second... he sucks!!!

    5 firsts and 2 seconds for the season... you're right... he's not that good.

    Oh yeah,... he's reigning WDC... and leading the WDC by 60 points. What a f'in loser.

    Beautifully put. I'm not a Vettel fan but I must admit that he is shockingly fast and a top line F1 driver.

    Quite honestly anyone who says Vettel is not that good has very little knowledge about what is involved in being competitive at the F1 level. There is so much more to it that just having a good car.

    The DRS was just horrible at this track. On the first section if you were in a top car and you were under 1 second behind the person in front of you it gave you a free pass on the straight, not even to set it up on the turn. Then to rub it in it let you put a gap on the car you just passed.

    FAWK I MISSED THE FINISH!!!!!


    Now who say's F1 is not exciting. Vettel good, possibly, but it is his car that is making him the current master of F1 not his skill imho. Schumacher in the same car would have clinched by now and then would just be working on the setup.

    That's just crap, he won the first race ever for either Red Bull team in the Toro Rosso. Hes consistently been faster than Webber also.
