I think Massa did a fantastic job this race, from 9th to 3rd.

Good race what I caught of it, Alonso was flying at start. Can't wait to see what mclaren2 says.

Well I don't think anyone would have predicted Massa in the top 3, good job by him.
I'm still amazed at the difference in performance by Merc between sat and sun, they've gotta sort that out quick.

Also good to see people like Paul getting further up the field these days.

The tyres are ruining it. I hate having to admit this but Red Bull were right, they do seem to punish the cars that provide good grip, and you could see from the onboards that the drivers really were not attacking. That's not what F1 should be in my opinion.

Get rid of DRS, KERS, make tyres more durable. Racing should be about skill and who develops the car better than who is the fastest from start to finishing without destroying tyres.

I'd rather Vettel win every race than this nonsense.

It's only the tires I have a problem with, the part when Mercedes were trying to get Hamilton to save his tires even more and he replied he couldn't go any slower, I definitely believe kers and DRS have been a good thing, the only reason for the tires is to get more pit stops which is when most of the strategy happens.
