I'm very very happy for Mark, from 19th to 4th wow (i know with luck involved, but still).

Kudos to him

Would in no way have thought he'd match his performance in China 2011 (15 positions gained!).

2nd in the championship, great result.

Good stuff, back to his customary 4th position.

Might have been though some good luck but he was in 19th due to bad luck so fair enough I think. Luck often evens itself out over time, but not usually in the same race.

Great result, Roll on Silverstone!!

Thank you to Pastor and LH. What happened with the rumours last night of Michael being penalised for DRS open under yellow flag? Also Kimmi Overtaking under yellow? Finally yes I agree Fernando needs to be disqualified for stopping after the race lol

WIN TO WEBBER!!!!! :clap: :clap:

OK OK, I am happy with 4th!

I always think at points Mark is not aggressive enough, especially at the start but this year he has been a complete master at being patient and just picking up points. If not for the Q2 stuff up in Barcelona he would have scored in every race this year, he really is showing his maturity this season. Can't wait for silverstone, im tipping him for a win there :stoned:

No further action taken on Michael, apparently having your DRS open under yellows is perfectly acceptable :confused:

But WTF about Raikkonen?! I KNOW I saw him overtaking Dan Ricciardo under waved yellows! I know the stewards were a bit dumb/blind yesterday but really, how was that missed?! The commentators even mentioned it once then never again!

Because this is Kimi. Kimi can do whatever TF he wants! Understand?? :smoking: :lol:

WTF....
That Red Bull suddenly looked pedestrian, and so did Vettel in Q1.
:confused:

Skysports are hopeless. It was obviously that DRS was stuck closed in qually.
To suggest it was open! No way you would be that fast with open DRS in the corners, what a bizarre suggestion. Obviously they are busy watching the timing monitors, getting pit reports too, but for seasoned commentators they did not appear to be watching the screen. :drunk:

soft tyre + full engine must have compensated slightly, but obviously not enough.

Anyway remarkable race, plently of NASCAR style grandstand finish, drama and theatre. :up: :up:

According to the Spanish newspaper AS, Webber has signed for 2013 with RB.

It's not official yet so treat this info as you wish, but personally I have the feeling that is true.

Thanks for posting kosmos, the English translation is " interesting ". :)

How the hell they know that, I've got no idea. I guess they have a 50% chance of being right.

:drunk: :drunk: :drunk: :drunk: Spanish press making stuff up, I see.

Horner has said outright they haven't even started talking about it yet.

I don't normally believe Horner, but Mark has said so too, so I guess in this case he's telling the truth.

Great quali from Mark - the front row is a great place to start at Silverstone. I seem to recall what happened the last time he started second at Silverstone...I believe it was 2010... :wave:

Webber was very good today, although I was holding my breath when he got the overheating gearbox-messages. He went into the limiter when downshifting but in the end it worked out just fine. Note: the DRS is slightly overpowered here.
