First one For Fernando and Ferrari

To win you need to be fast but also get to the end, Ferrari had both covered today though barely with Massa's car. Bad luck for Vettel but...that's racing....more later.

  1. I was very excited about today's race after an interesting grid result post-qualifying.

    In the end it was one of the most boring races I can recall. What a snoozer! Maybe I will start watching Sprint Cup.

  2. I fell asleep twice and just allowed myself to be woken up by the screaming of the commentators anytime something interesting happened. This will probably be my system for the entire season as no one in the FIA realized "Oh wait, if we make the cars really really heavy for 85% of the race, the handling will be shit and they'll be no overtaking".
    Morons, trying their hardest to ruin the best sport on earth.

  3. That new infield section was a godawful waste of time and space. Who in their right mind could have thought it would "promote overtaking?"

    I felt bad for Chandhok and Senna, who appeared to be victims of their team's inability to make it to any pre-season testing (Chandhok from a lack of experience, Senna from a lack of reliability).

    Vettel looked very good, it's too bad he had engine/exhaust trouble. Should be interesting to watch him and Alonso duke it out. And of course it's fantastic to see Massa back in an F1 car and banging off laps like he never left.
