Let's look at the facts.
10 drivers started in front of Fred.
5 of them retired from the race putting him nett 6th
1 was given a stop go penalty dropping him out of contention. Alonso nett 5th.
1 was screwed by safety car, overtook Fred with ease, then made simple error letting Alonso inherit position on last lap. Nett 4th.
Actual finishing position 4th. Nett 4th.
Fastest lap. Lap 58. Seventh fastest.
Verdict :Cruise and collect. Untidy at times.
WTF makes people think this was a great drive? Meanwhile Bordais and Kimi both started behind him and should have finished in front of him with similar levels of reliability.
Half of the drivers who started infront make mistakes. Funny that you mention bourdaris when he profited the most from the SC and went from 13th to 5th because of it. Alonso was screwed both times by the SC because he twice pitted after it which means he lost track position and ended up last both times. I dont think ive ever seen someone as biased as you in my life. Its so extreme that it should be classed as a 'disorder'.
Lets take a look at some other facts concerning Hamiltons race. The two ferraris were out of the picture from the start. His team mate was driving like a good number two, so in reality he was racing a couple of bmws and a williams. Whats so great about beating those cars in the best car?
