Yeah, I agree. We already know that the RB9s do well on the harder compounds, particularly the Hard tire. They seem to struggle on softer compounds so far this year. It is still too early to hand the championship over to Vettel.
Great racing today. Was impressed with Alonso picking up points with no DRS and with Hamilton finishing 5th as the Mercs seemed to have no race pace most of the day.
