And Alonso is the man once again!!!!!!!!! Dissapointing for Massa with the front spoiler damage at the first turn.

OUCH!!!!! Vettel demoted to 5th after the race for the pass he did on Button on lap 66. Button now 2nd while Kimi and Kobayashi move up to 3rd and 4th respectively

FIA has been very anal trying to clamp down drivers trying to use the run-off area as an advantage. e.g. Spa, Copse of Silverstone, etc...

Some might say Button push him off track, but probably all wheels off track, and power down and complete the move in the run-off area is what the stewards area.

Intend of runoff area is to avoid accidents, not to make your overtaking move.

This time the stewards have had enough.

Big difference, the organic substance inside the cockpit is different. LOL!!!

One is almost world champion, and one is two time world champion.

Really? I disagree with that one

Shame to see MW not perform better, great outing for Sauber and of course Alonso still performing very well. Penalty on Vettel seemed a bit harsh (especially given JB's tyres were on the way out) but on the basis of the written rules ...

Great race. Alonso looks like his old self from the Benetton/Peugeot years.

Last Faux Sports race, thank god. The amount of commercials was ludicrous.

ugh. VET's advantage gained shoulda been told to give it back to BUT during the race no? or was it because it was too late in the race and they didnt have time to review it....at the very least Horner shoulda radio-ed VET and told him to give it back to BUT as to secure P3 and not a demotion now to P5.

Normally anything happened in the last 5 laps will not have sufficient time to review the incident.

Alonso the man once again. More than a race win clear of his nearest rival, now...is he starting to dominate a little bit?

Also - it was hilarious to see Hamilton unlap himself. Vettel was clearly, completely confused

Race was 'ok'. Last 10 laps had the potential to be great, but Button under performed and got lucky that Vettel botched his pass.
