Despite a fantastic drive, Romain Grosjean was partly to blame for losing his own front wing so I can't give it to him as he surely had the pace to be fighting for a podium.
Mark Webber, flawless victory and matching Vettel for pace, he loves this track
Bruno Senna on Nico Hulkenburg, I bet that felt amazing for Bruno. A tough few weeks for him and after a poor qualifying he managed to put everything aside and finally nail Nico around the outside. Bet an extra point never felt so good! Not yielding to Nico on the next straight was also brave stuff, hopefully this race will act as a springboard towards the second hald of the season for him
Webber on Alonso. I mean DRS was horrible, it really isn't needed at circuits that produce natural overtaking, massive anticlimax to that chase when it became push to pass.
The tyres were great, I think a mix of medium and Hard would have been a better combination as there might possibly have been a mix of some one-stop strategies too. Overall the tyre performance was fantastic, most of the top cars were running very close lap times so the operational window or sweet spot was much larger. Also great to see cars being able to push on the hard tyres. Again, glad to say there won't be any Pirelli haters on the boards for another 2 weeks at least.
There were many great moments all around, Schumacher Vs Massa was a great little battle, as was the final duel between Senna Hulkenburg and Button.
However I have to say it goes to Perez for his interview on Sky. Even though he was obviously angry, it's good to see drivers speaking their mind in an age where everything F1 drivers say seems to be filtered through PR talk. On this occasion I think it was a little unfair on Maldonado who made an honest mistake, and probably won't do his reputation any good. But good on Perez nonetheless, I'm warming to this kid!
