Wow, with all the controversy and unrest on the outside, not a bad race at all. Got very exciting at the end.

Last week was all Mercedes podium, and this week was all Renault...

Anything can go wrong did went wrong with McLaren, botched pitstop again...with the left rear nut fawked up, and one more rear jack again with button? (His third stop looked tardy), and then puncture and retirement for Jenson.

Great to see Kimi back on podium so soon and gave a bit of hard time to Vettel....

what happened to RAI in the end, his race engineer was saying VET tyre degrad was higher and that he should catch the race leader but it seemed it was the opposite and RAI tyres degraded faster. nonetheless a great result for RAI, my second favorite driver after VET!

Typical Kimi in the post race conference. He didn't even thank the team or crack a smile, meanwhile Grosjean could not stop smiling and was thrilled, first thing he did was thank the team...that's not surprising though...typical Raikkonen.

Well, I am a McLaren fan...and was punching sofa when I saw the left rear again TWICE!!!

They really need to look closer to the wheel nut thread and the threads on the axle...and check the torque settings...

Nico Rosberg has escaped any sanction for the on-track moments during the Bahrain Grand Prix when he appeared to push Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso off the track.

The stewards of the meeting met with the drivers and their team representatives after the race to look into the details of the clash that took place as Hamilton exited the pits on lap 11 and tried to retake a position.

Vettel pulled a Vettel! Most exciting race so far.

Love that Kimi and Grosjean made the podium, DiResta's 2-stop paid off, and Schumi made it into the points.

Sux for Button

Love to watch Ted's Notebook post race...



Explained why McLaren's both pit stops messed up, first time was the "pegs" were not aligned, so the wheel was not set on properly. Caused the mechanic to waste time and shift the wheel a little bit.
Second time was the cross-threaded aluminum wheel nut. Where the titanium hub messed up the softer aluminum wheel nut.
