I can't believe Hamilton's over-eagerness - for the first time he is in for a real chance in 2009, and then he destroys it again with a hefty portion of over-eagerness!

Will he ever learn?

Great going for Rubens and Webber, it's going to be the duel Lauda was speaking about...

Do the cars look really slow to anyone else?

RB's starts are awful, poor Vettel was swamped and Webbo does a Schumi to try and stay in front.

Webber should conserve his fuel and stay within the striking distance of Barrichello and leapfrog Barrichello when the Brawn driver pitted first.

Vettel is doomed. 6th and unable to pass Massa.

Luckily for Vettel, Kovalainen is holding up Button for 3rd. Vettel could still get on the podium!

Webber touched Hamilton's rear tyre with his front wing, resulting in a puncture.

He cut his tyre on Webber's front wing, when he tried to overtake at the start. Lewis had a superb start, if a little over the top...

Hamilton would have P2, P3 maybe even P! if Webber hadn't punctured his rear right tyre. Tyre was deflated before going into turn 1, that's why he overshot. Not his fault.

Webber under investigation for the start. They gave a penalty in the GP2 race for a similar banging of wheels.

I have to say that I do think that Webber deserves a punishment for that opening move. It was quite clearly a deliberate jig to the right, and it certainly wasn't as if Webber could have been unaware of Barrichello's presence.

Right off the start, down the straight. Barrichello was directly alongside him and Webber suddenly moved over into Barrichello. I'm amazed that the cars were apparently unscathed, to be honest.

There it is again - his bad luck/bad karma/being at the wrong place at the wrong time....
I am sincerely sad for Webbo.

Any thoughts on Webber's part in Hamilton's puncture. Replay looked like he touched Hammi' right rear tyre, and you could see the tyre deflating as Hammi was trying to brake for turn 1

Mark has already the 17,5 sec advantage on everyone else except Rubens that keeps him ahead even with the drive-through.
Rubens pits, Kovalainen leads!

Yeah, I like Webber, but it wasn't as if he slowly drifted over to the right, or was unaware of where Rubens was. It was a pretty thuggish move, IMO.

Don't think their start was that bad, it was the KERS cars that swamped them.

And not the first thuggish move he's made in his career. I've seen it a number of times.
Personally, I think he should have gotten a penalty for other things he's done. Perhaps the stewards thought its about time they sent him a message.
Remember this one - forcing Massa completely off the road late last year...

Found the image, but cant recall which race it was.

It starts to look like a typical Button race again. Right behind Webbo, pressuring him severly, and then they will use plan B...
