I think Ralf and Toyota wasted a very good oppertunity in their home GP, they had a very good car but got their strategy completely wrong and dropping from 1st to 8th place was too bad. And yet again what was Sato doing in his home race.

Alonso dint have any problems with the gear selector, he was asked to slow down by FIA officials and let Klien pass him because he overtook him straightlining a chicane.

Oh MAN! What a stonker of a race....The BEST of this season. Never in my wildest dreams did I think Kimi would win the race. Thought at best he would have a podium finish. Very very unfortunate for Juan, if he would have kept going, things would have been different. Jacques is always in the middle of some contorversy or the other! Good drive by Alonso but not good enough. Finally, Alonso raced like a racer without any inhibitions because he is already World champion and could take risks.

But boy oh boy, KIMI drove like he was possessed! Claiming more wins this season than Alonso!!

Yeah didn't expect to see Kimi on the podium, and only if this could hv happened last race....
This race was really nice with all the highspeed accidents, and the way Michael held of Alonso and Kimi for quiet sometime, with a relatively very slow car.

Man, i woke up at 7 on a sunday to watch the race and not once did i evenblink an eye. who says F1 needs more overtaking? It wa great watching Schumacher vs Alonso vs Kimi. And Alonso's move on MS at the 130 R was amazing. But without a shadow of a doubt the man of the race was KR. Like Norbert Haug said, that was the best overtaking move after Hakkinen's Spa 2000 move. Damn, bad luck for Montoya again. But **** happens. From his crash, onwards i was just calculating the WCC points. Man, China is going to be a breathtaker with the WCC hanging on such a fine balance. I really wish mclaren win it 'cos i won't be able to stand the prick Briatore celebrating another title.

Astonishing run from Kimi! I would bet on a Fisichella victory till the time Kimi blasted past. Great strategy by McLaren too.
I also like the aggression showed by Alonso while overtaking MS and Webber. It's great to see such hardcore overtaking.
Now, I just hope both McLarens do well in China. I surely want that Constructors' Championship to got to them.

Alonso was just too good today and what more can you expect from him when he doesn't have a car which is as fast as the Mclaren even then he stormed from 16th place to finish on the podium. If you compare his pace to that of Fisi's in the same car it was too good. Alonso's fastest lap was clearly 1 sec quicker than Fisi's and also just .059 sec slower than Kimi's.

Alonso could well have finished ahead of Kimi but his strategy screwed him where as the Mclaren strategists did an amazing job.

Because of the Commonwealth games which are to be held in Melbourne.

As for the predictions, renault and Honda have looked the best in winter testing season. Followed by Ferrari and Mclaren. They have both had reliability gremlins. But the last two weeks of testing for Mclaren have turned out to be good in terms of pace and reliability. Then it'll be the Williams whose cosworth power has surprised me to be honest. Then it should be toyota and BMW who have been keeping a low profile in the testing sessions. And then the usual RB/RB2/MF1. One thing to note is that Honda and ferrari would have benefitted from testing at Bahrain recently..........even though the advantage may only last for the Bahrain GP.

As for race victory, my heart says it'll be a Mclaren. But my head says it'll be Renault. But as long as its not a ferarri i'll be happy.

Here are the top three race positions:
Alonso
Raikkonen/Montoya
Button
