Frustration might be pulling up on Flavio. He might have thought of pulling a win with rookie Heiki. In my opinion Heiki was trying hard to stay on track but his recoveries after several spins was something to watch , he kept the engine running all the time.

Heh-heh, I guess he's just furious because his reputation of picking brilliant performers who shine on debut is at stake here.....but I just think he's overreacting as usual because that guy Heiki looks like he has huge potential

I guess that fact that Hamilton put up a good show on debut prciked him as well.

The comment seems to be fair considering that Heiki was very shaky during the race.
May be the car was not setup properly or since it was his first race he was may be trying too hard.
We will certainly find that out in future races.

yeah..Hamilton was good on the race..and I guess it WAS team orders that made Alonso overtake him..

I wonder alonso would have overtaken on his own when he actually could not stop this guy overtaking him at the beginning of the race..

This guy is a sure watch!! And ofcourse KIMI was SUPERB..
