McLaren Radio: "OK, Jense, a bit of luck and our brilliant strategy calls have got you from 7th on the grid to last place with only half the race left. Nothing left for us to do, the race is all yours!"

coz he was the fastest through the race and flawless, or because luck and the right strategy at the end?
Button won in Canada because he was fastest and flawless at the right time
Alonso's strategy was spot on today. I can't see why Ferrari need to blamed for this performance.
I see some are saying that they should have pit Alonso a few laps prior for his first stop... Why would they want to do that when he was the fastest on the track at the time?
His early mistakes and the inability to get heat in the tyres screwed his race after the first pit stop. Which led the team to opt for a more aggressive strategy which included undercutting Webber because he was ruining Alonso's race.
His early mistakes, being stuck behind Webber and tyre temps after the pit stop screwed up his race. Not strategy...
Alonso should accept responsibility for this although it is understandable as he was really pushing.
His early mistakes were, I thought, at least partially caused by the lack of heat in his tyres. But then, there are mistakes and there are mistakes: When Massa spun after going wide, I think it was Coulthard on the BBC commentary observed that he needed to learn from Alonso how not
to spin (he said that Alonso had shown better judgement by allowing the car to continue to drift wide rather than, as Massa did, try to fight the car and hold it on the track).
At the time, I thought Ferrari's tyre choices were right and Webber going for the prime so early in the race was a gamble to try to counter Alonso.
