Nice to hear the ole Kimi press conference. Everything said in one breath without taking a break.

Was kind of expecting a RBR win, but was hoping for a good Hamilton start to overtake in turn 1. What happened to Button the second half? I was expecting at least a 5th place finish, but didn't see how he ended up behind Rosberg and Di Resta before he had his puncture and failed diff. I blame the tsn commercials.

Good race. TSN coverage was shit. Made me mad. A couple really poorly timed commercials

Anyone else notice that they put the wrong flag up for grosjean? Was really strange as it had black on it.

McLaren's pace was brutal, both Button and Hamilton's tires dropped off well before the others. They tried to stretch their stints a lap or 2 after the "cliff" and was overtaken by others coming out.

Hamilton's stops were 7s, 7s, and 2s slower than average, which made things even worse.

Jenson Button seems to be lacking that consistency he usually has. 2 podiums, but 2 no point races. Disappointing.

Great for Kimi though, great to see him up there. Lotus ahead of Mercedes and Ferrari in the constructors, which makes me very happy to see.

Pretty sure that his DNF today was due to his cracked exhaust. If it wasnt that bad they would have let him finish out the last lap to at least potentially get a couple points. Since they pulled him on the last lap that leads me to believe that had they not stopped him they would be using a new engine/tranny next race.

Pretty sure Button did have a gearbox issue, hence the DNF. It was Rosberg who had a cracked exhaust.

Button had 3 problems. Cracked exhaust, puncture (from exhaust flowing over tires), and finally, the diff which caused the retirement.

This will finally shut up those McLaren fanboys who think Hammy and Button are invincible. Hhaha

Jk, but you ripped on me last week. Good win for Vettel. Im stoked to see how tight the grid is this year. Excellent performance from Lotus. Its alot more enjoyable when no one is dominating.

It's more exciting, no doubt. Far more emotional for sure. Maybe it's just me, but I enjoy seeing my team dominate :P Good racing can happen for 3rd place.

Seriously though, I hope this keeps up. Win or lose, there's been some good racing so far and I'm enjoying it a lot.

I have really been shocked by how enjoyable the last two races have been. Usually I watch the first 3/4 laps, zone out, and wake back up at the last 10 or so unless the announcers point something crazy out. These last two I have been sitting there and barely drinking my coffee.

Even the wife is getting into it.

haha they'll never be invincible as long as there's no #1. I think this year, with McLaren having a strong car, they will lose both championships because of no clear #1 driver (each one taking points off each other), and their brutal strategies. It's the same year after year with Whitmarsh behind the bench.

I mean come on, Alonso in that tank of a Ferrari is only 6 points back from Hamilton and tied with Button! Damn car's a second off the pace!
