A great response from F1 after the first race. Button had made the right call, which could have easily gone wrong if the rain came soon after his tyre change. Like i said in my last blog, the race is exciting to watch when there's an accident, and there was in the opening laps. Alonso had to go from the back and pass the slower cars, which we like to see,but if he did not spin we would not have seen any over taking from him. The rain always add to the excitement of the race and for a few laps we where saying, what are they going to do with there tyres? It was a better race with Kubica having a superb start and we missed out on a good fight between him and Lewis because of Lewis’s 2nd stop. Why they did that i don't know, they gave Massa 3rd and i think Lewis could have passed Kubica but not Button and it would have been a McLaren one-two. Vettle will have the title as the unluckiest driver this season if his car keeps failing. Over all a good race but if there is a two pit stop mandatory, it would not change anything unless the safety car is out or the wheel nut doesn't fit. Refuelling will need to come back and we should not know how much fuel is in the cars. Bring back the guessing game in F1
McLaren: A great day for them, would have been perfect if they didn't bring Lewis in for a 2nd pit stop and possible missed out on a one-two finish.
Renault: Kubica, the nicest man in F1 and has the talent to go with it. He should use this a push the team forward and qualify ahead of Mercedes GP.
Ferrier: A strong finish from from both their drivers, even with Alonso falling to the back of the grid. Massa could be the man that collects the points and challenges for the title quietly, like in 2008.
Mercedes GP: Rosberg had a good race with luck on his side, he will get a podium, but has to be patient. Schumi had bad luck with his front wing damaged. he was quick in Friday practice but in the race we saw him push but there's some spark missing. I think we will see the spark in Monaco.
Force India: Starting 13th and finishing 7th was a good performance from Liuzzi, he took advantage of and incident packed race, which is how the mid-teams will make their way forward this season.
Williams: Out of the mid-teams i expected the Williams to be the best. they still can with Rubens, as long as he keeps his chin up, he will consistently be in the points and have a good fight with Kubica and Sutil this season.
Red Bull: A disappointing race for them. Vettle again lost the race because of his car, will it happen at the next race? Webber should have taken advantage, the team have the fastest car but sometime when your at your home race the pressure gets to you on a subconus level, is that what happened with Webber?
Toro Rosso: Alguersuari had Schumi behind him and had a good battle with him. This should give him confidence and will get some points soon
BMW Sauber: A quite race for the one surviving car. The drivers need to learn how to take advantage on wet races.
Lotus: Kovi had a solid performance again. Bringing the car in 13th place. Lotus car is reliable for Kovi and will be in the points soon.
Hispania: Chandhok did a great job. He has not had the best start to the season, with not enough practice, The race time he has picked up will be valuable to the team and him.
Virgin: With the news that their fuel tank was not big enough for the race, it would have been nice to se how far they can go in the race but reliability will be the issue for the season on this computer designed car.
