    Great win by Vettel in an otherwise boring race overall.

    Could be boring again, unless it rains! Pray for an inundation! Vettel just has the better car. Surprise with Hulkenberg in P3 on the grid. Hamilton made one of his few errors, going off the track, then getting blocked by Sutil and not making it out of Q2. Again, pray for rain!

    Boring beyond my expectations. Another impressive drive by Vettel.
    Hopefully Singapoore will be more fun to watch...

    Yup, I didn't have much hope for the race when Seb had a .6 sec advantage in quali and practice. Bad race for Lotus but Webber & Massa put in a pretty good showing.

    I just read that Ferrari might be very close to signing Kimi for next season.
    I don't know what I would give to hear his reaction when they tell him on the radio that "Fernando is faster than you. Do you understand?".

    Probably something along the lines of "Shut up, I KNOW what I'm doing!" :manganr:

    I feel bad for Massa but his performance has really been poor since 2008. I think Ferrari gave him ample opportunity to turn things around. I was kinda of shocked to see those stats below, it's been a long time since he has put up those kind of numbers.

    Massa's career at Ferrari

    Starts: 132
    Wins: 11
    Podiums: 36
    Poles: 15
    Fastest laps: 14

    After Rubens' spring hit him in the head at Hungary it just hasn't been the same. I don't think anyone really holds that against Felipe but Ferrari knows they need stronger results and it's time to look elsewhere. He's a good guy and hopefully he can find a decent seat somewhere else.

    I think Ferrari can only blame themselves for pushing Kimi into retirement in order to sign Alonso while keeping Massa.

    Latest news: Massa won't be driving a Ferrari next year (unless he buys a road car).

    Apparently that won't happen, Rob Smedley is rumored to be heading to Williams.

    I can just hear it now.

    Spoken firmly with an Italian accent over race radio:

    "Fernando, Kimi is faster than you!"

    Another snoozer race for the win. Lots of action back in the pack at the end with the different tire strategies though. I think somebody put a hex on Webber. Not only does his engine blow on the last lap (wonder if it was pneumatic issues like Grosjean had?) but they docked him 10 grid spots for the next race because of the ride he got from Alonzo. I think he's ready for that Porsche ride.

    Yeah, if one ignored that first place was a foregone conclusion the rest of the action was decent. Kimi had a good run with a nifty pass on Jenson.

    Nico and Lewis seemed to be at the end of their rope towards the latter laps of the race. I think they both expected better, even knowing Vettel was pretty much untouchable.

    The Webber penalty seems a bit much but the FIA is not known for having an actual sense of humor.
