at the end of first lap he was 10th not 9th, then he managed to overtake three drivers in two laps and finally went on hunting for webbo and felipe, was able to hold with hard compounds webber with a new set of softs whilst every other driver with hard compounds pursued by another on softs was literally smashed in a matter of two corners; and eventually ended up the race 2 secs behind petrov who was about 20 secs ahead of him after first pit stop
if that's not a great race then please enlighten me please because we have a utterly different concept of racing
I agree with this
Not a great result overall of course, but considering his position after the first lap, basically due to bad luck, the rest of his race was flawless. I don't know what else he could have done to finish any better than he did.
