The gorgeous choreography helped what in the end was short of a truly exciting race. What perfect metaphor for today's F1, a gorgeously lit, expensive, impossible to get to oasis in the middle of the desert.
But hey, sparks!
With this result Hamilton can now afford a DNF and still lead the championship.
Rosberg looked positively Barrichello-esque. He attacked and passed the two Ferraris very well but, for whatever reason, he never really attacked Hamilton. Inexplicable.
Raikkonen was not impressed with his second place, that's why we love him.
Vettel, I suppose even a 4 time Champion can have an off race which he certainly did. But Seb made no excuses for himself and that's great.
Bottas, his back must be better.
Alonso: F1 needs him and Mclaren to be up front and fighting. This race showed the racer is still there, release the kraken Honda!
Maldonado was just amazingly Pastorical, there was no runoff he left unexplored on lap 1, a legend.
