What a jump from Massa and Alonso, 2-3 off the jump with Hammy in 4th. Kimmi all over Hammy in 5th.

Finger boy is rolling away in 1st

Awesome run for Kimi. Great run for Alonso and Massa. Vettel did good but was definetly not the fastest.

Great run without major incidents.

Lots of analysis stated the cooler track temperature affected the performance of the tires.

Great race...I always felt Massa got screwed over with pit strategy. In order to get fernando up front.

Even with Massa got some pace today.

Kimi knows what he's doing.

Great drives by the Force India boys. Glad to see Ferrari doing well.

Maldonado showing some improvement. He went off without taking out another driver. Well done, Pastor.

On a side note, NBC needs a new graphics editor. In the driver points graphic they misspelled Grosjean's name and listed him as a Ferrari driver. Nice.

Interesting race. It started like a lot of 2012 races - Weber falls asleep at the start and Vetel runs away, but it got interesting with all the pitting (as intended). Let's see if Kimi can keep it up.

Webber has to be the worst starter i've ever seen.

I predict a mid season meltdown by Hamilton once he realizes his Mercedes is a piece of junk.

Kimi does what Kimi does and that is just win.

I can only assume that WEB has not recovered from the Disaster he had 3 years ago during the Chinese Grand Prix. He was leading in the points and wiped out on a wet part of the track. He was in the points lead for like 4 or 5 races and was on pace to win the drivers title.

As far as NBC, at least they can do side-by-side picture of the race on 5 of 7 commercial breaks. I wish they can do it for ALL ads.

I agree, the picture-in-picture commercials are a MAJOR improvement. What is effectively 2 real commercial breaks is hugely preferred over the old system. That alone makes me like NBC sports over SPEED.

Those picture-in-a-picture commercials took longer, I think. I'll have to pay closer attention next time, but the full commercial breaks are 2 minutes. Those picture-in-a-picture commercials seemed to be 3 or 4 minutes. On my screen they looked like a cell phone image on a huge background. Sort of hard to see. Better than no coverage at all, I guess.
