Another Vettel victory. He can stop racing for next 5 races and he will still be champion by miles.

The final few laps brought the race back to life when Button started chasing Vettel. With all those backmarkers anything could have happened.
Good for Force India to get good points. They could potentially catch Renault by end of this season. If not for safety car, I think Hamilton would finished behind both Force India cars.

Great race for Force India!! Now they are getting close to the Renault with five races to go.
Hamilton, despite losing the front wing and then a drive through penalty was able to finish 5th, thanks to safety car period. Massa lost the pace after the incident with Hamilton. It was a great race!!

The good thing about the race for Force India was that they managed to put space between themselves and Sauber, and have moved much closer to Renault.
Mallya wanted that they target fifth position.
With Renault in a tail spin in the second half of this season, like Force India last year, it seems to be possible.
While they are not anywhere close to the speed of the top three, they are now able to compete with Mercedes with proper strategy.

Overall, quite a boring race. There was never a chance in hell that Button would have gotten close enough to trouble Vettel.

^^ Guess that's the fourth time this season that Hamilton has rubbed Massa the wrong way. While Hamilton may or may not be at fault ALL the time, IMO Massa's feelings and reaction after the race were totally justified. Hamilton has spoiled his race more than once this season and Massa has suffered at Hamilton's hands for no fault of his.

I'm probably going to get a lot of angry "you've been quoted" messages for this but what was schumacher doing?? 7 time world champion?? looked like rookie nascar driver. too many mistakes in the last 2 years. sebastien loeb is a true 7 time world champ because he drives like one.

ok, awaiting the mob fury now
