What an anticlimax....Vettel to start from the Pit-lane in today's race

This is something to watch out for, Maybe Alonso is lucky, its going to be a superb race anyways. Just going to wait and watch, what RBR has up their sleeve.

Is Vettel going to charge up the field ? or is he straight driving into Alonso to crash both out of the race. LOL

RedBull has made major changes to the set-up of Vettel' car ahead of the race to boost overtaking. It can be a very exciting race. I just hope the RedBull and the Ferrari stay out of trouble.

RBR needs to outscore Ferrari by 6 & McLaren by 16 to wrap up the constructors.

Oh that accident. For the first time I am seeing NK walk off the track . Was it a problem with NKs car or Nico underestimated his own speed.

Omg, sebastian is flying furious,the safety car was a blessing in disguise for him. fingers crossed for Fernando's podium, hope sebastian ends at 9 or below.
Edit: Poor Lewis, but thanks anyways.
And happy for the Iceman. I remember somebody mentioned about miracles happening today, guess the Ferrari fans prayers are heard!

This is turning out to be a very interesting race.

Exactly, Vettel is just literally flying.

May be not. Vettel might continue with just a single pitstop and finish ahead of Fernando Alonso. And if that happens, Alonso would definitely be shattered.
EDIT: We can breathe a sigh of relief. Vettel pits and joins back in fourth position.

By the way, I am very happy and grinning from ear to ear for Kimi. This could be his first victory after comeback and will consolidate his third position in the championship.

I don't think so. If I remember correctly, Vettel is running on softs. I guess it can't stand till the end of the race.

I grudgingly accept that Vettel was the driver of the race. But, well done Alonso and congrats Kimi.

I wonder where would Vettel have ended up had it not been for safety cars.

Did you people notice that the race race was a lot more enjoyable because of Karun's commentary?

A champion's race!!!!!!!
This is the best race of the season with all the ups and downs.

Kimi was awesome, so happy to see the iceman on the top step of the podium.
Alonso limited the damage and vettel drove a great race to take the podium.

Sadly Kimi could not get the proper champagne because of the local laws on alcohol, but I am sure he will not complain about that.

Tough luck for Hamilton, he truly deserved to win after his performance in the practice and qualifying.

Wow, Wow, wow Vettel.

What an exciting race of the season.

Sadly Schumi's Mercedes is a donkey and is doing no good to his last few races.

The Iceman Cometh , Alonso Second, But the man of the day was clearly Sebastian Vettel- Period.

Its clearly a gritty race by Vettel to hold on to his nerves throughout the race, that too with 2 stop strategy. Well done

Could easily see the disappointing look on Alonso's face, he certainly was sulking and dejected.

With 2 races to go, its going to be a fun filled season finale.

Every track needs its race, and the yas got its own today.
" boring", anybody?

And Kimi's pit to car comm? Huge huge laugh!!


Although I'm shattered by Hamilton's retirement from what would have been a demolition win.
And buttons fall.
And Perez ........ What are you showing us????

What a day... What a fantastic race. Well done Kimi..

Lotus had last won in 1986. It took 26 years and the Iceman for them to be on the top again. Well done.

Vettel is truly a great driver, but without the safety cars, he might have finished in 7th or 8th.

What a heartbreak for Lewis! Poor guy!

Great performance by Vettel, but not really surprising considering what he's driving.

Alonso, determined and focused as ever, but this is where it really starts!


Alonso must now finish no less than 2nd place in each of the remaining race (assuming Vettel will finish no less than 3rd in each of the races).

Hopefully, Ferrari gets those "upgrades".

Apart from this, what a nasty end to the pleasant results . The use of profanity, especially in a country like that -- totally unneeded stuff.
