What a race that was! Gutted for Alonso, just couldn't hold on, what a story it would have been. You could tell he was disappointed to lose the win 3 laps from the end, he's such a racing monster.

Go Hamilton!

The 3 front finishers today are my favorites for this year.

Alonso is a monster, but has only an OK car.

Richiardo is badass. I see him continuing to do well.

Hamilton is the class of the field, and is showing it at every race.

Rosberg I put in the same class as Vettel. He'll do great as long as he's in the best car, but he's nowhere near Hamilton, talent-wise IMO.

Great race! Probably the best this year.

Imagine if Alonso had put on the mediums instead of the softs on his last stint. If he was able to do that well on the torn up softs, he might have even held off Ricciardo on the white walls! Regardless, that was an exciting last 10 laps!

Thing is the Ferrari was crap on the mediums. Kimi had them on and he had to get off them after only doing 20 laps. Fact of the matter is, the race was 3 laps too long

And he's turning into a "Cry-Baby" like Vettel.

The mediums were crap all weekend for everyone. They were down 1.5s a lap on the softs and were going off quicker as well. Granted the track temps were a fair bit higher Friday and Saturday but they still sucked when Williams put them on. All in all a lot of teams were making really stupid calls over the weekend.

Warm up those tires, boys, Formula 1 is back!


There's something about a F1 car trailing 4 rooster tails of water that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Friggen Nico takes pole again...

Rosberg takes the pole, but I'm hoping Hamilton has no issues. He should take the win if things go smoothly for him.

I was hoping Rossi would get a shot.

And why Caterham got rid of him is beyond me. They had nothing to lose but try another combination with the car...
