It's a shame they added another tarmac run-off area.

Alguersuari will start from 6th. Maybe he can drive after all...

Also, occasional raining should be mandatory for all F1 weekends.

QFT.....

Of all the Eccelstone crazy idea, that one carries the most weight....

Mercedes is still proving that the spirit of BAR/Honda F1 is alive and well within the team...

Schumacher showing a bit of class, Red Bulls on another league, Ferrari would be better off if they used a Fiat Punto...

Not a bad race, but rain was missed.

Shame about Senna crashing into Alguersuari in the first corner, I really wanted to see what could he do.

Really happy for MSC to pull that 5th off....and finished in front of his teammate who qualified 5th.....not bad for a 42 year old....Interested to see how Mercedes will do at Monza where its another track with good emphasis on straight line speed, which is the only thing their car have...

RBR is as fast as ever and gotta be disheartening for Ferrari and McLaren to see the pace they clawed back before the summer is gone again....

I read somewhere that Ferrari has already given up on 2011 and is working in the 2012 car. So not much suprise for them here. McLaren on the other hand...

A silly move by Hamilton ruining another potential good performance.
