damn exiting race ... sad for montoya and button though ... schumi seemed to have made a rare mistake ... ferrari however were nowhere in sight all weekend and i wouldn't blame bridgestone for it ... they gotta get their act together

Button was not tenth. He was 5th ahead of Fisichella and very much on the same lap as the leaders. Even though he is classified as finished, i dont think he'll be penalised for an engine change next time.

As for the race. It was absolutely amazing!! Woke up at 5.30 to watch it and boy was it worth it. Right from the warm-up lap to the last dying seconds. Was disappointed about Montoya's bad luck but the sight of the crashed ferraris made up for it.

Alonso once again displayed his capabilities as well as those of the car which seems to be well above everyone else in race-trim. Mclaren are second though and hopefully the european season will allow them to close the gap. A solid result for toyota but i dont for a moment believe that their 3 stop strategy would have worked half as effectively if not for the numerous safety car periods.

I cant imagine how frustrating it must be for Button. Anyone noticed how none of the engineers in the garage even dared to make eye-contact with him? His incident is far worse than Kimi's suspension failure at the Nurburgrin last year.

Overall, this is probably the best OZ GP i've ever seen and the best since the Jap. GP in 2005.

Ferrari crashing out like that was bad...Could someone tell how Massa crashed?? Well abt Michael, think he was pushing way harder than the car could take it and couldn't keep in on the racing line at that corner which proved to be a bit of a challenge to a few others esp. Montoya.

Anyway its just 3 races down..a lot more to go. This season if gettin heated up already with all the teams being damn competitive

i very well know button was fifth BEFORE his engine blew ... he DID NOT cross the finish line and was effectively lapped by the top 9 ... and thus was classified as 10th

One more thing. The radio transmissions were absolutely brilliant! Especially the one to Barrichello just before the start warning him about Rosberg.

yea the radio transmissions really add to the exitement.

wonder what the teams reaction was when they saw poor jenson's car on fire 'keep on the throttle' ??would have been really spectacular to see a car with the engine on fire cross the finish line.

Thumbs up

What a dramatic race this one was, Button blowing up his engine was just spectacular. But what an unlucky guy, now that he is classified as finishing in 10th place, he will lose out 10 grid places for next race due to engine change. Alonso was once again awesome in the race, made no mistakes at all and was awesomely quick. The safety car came out so many times but he managed to pull out from the crowd so quick.
It was a sad day for Ferrari and i didn't expect such a mistake from a driver like Schumi.

What a race !!!! truly amazing... First thing that comes to the mind Button's car...wow. did u guys notice, even after his engine started smoking he still pressed on the throttle not once but twice jst so that he could cross the finish line......anyway, he had bad luck breaking down just before the finish line. It was a really disastrous day for the ferrari's ... infact the whole Australian GP for cursed for them. Alonso again gave a superb performance hardly making any mistakes. I thought, kimi would catch him before the end....but I guess he proved too quick. Lots of crashes and plenty of action.....what more can a man ask in a race ? LOL.. nice to see ralf making it to the podium in the new season.

hey sridhar,

i don think button wont lose 10 places in the next race as he did not finish the race and his equipment failed, hence according to FIA rules he can change his engine for the next race without getting penalised even though he was classified 10th.

however, i am not 100% sure as there are many loop holes in the regulations.

the race was good today but montoya, schumacher & button were dissapointin, however awesome car control seen from montoya but tat chap is just too unlucky..wat say?

cheez

Man that was a very good prediction if you had gone to watch the race to Not just Jazz by the bay at Marine Drive then you would have won a ACI subscription.

button wont loose 10 places on the grd for the next rae.. he was classified 1 lap down and he didnt finish the race so, he is allowed to change his engine for the next race.. so u r right Mp421b

well i dunno if u guys have read this or not.. but speed looses his 8th place to DC and is now 11th.. and button ends up in 9th place.. Scott Speed lost his place cause he got a 25 second penalty for passing coulthard under yellow flags and also got fined $5000 for abusing coulthard.. stupid move by him there.. not too good for relations between the 2 red bull teams..

hey,

i just heard that even ralf schumacher's 3rd place is in doubt, as he appeared to have passed nick heidfield under yellow flags. FIA will give out the confirmation by tom morining latest.

and as papps clarified button wont lose ten places next time around as the FIA rule register states

"Conversely, when a failure occurs during a race, no penalty applies"

so i am sure we r gonna have an awesome race in imola.

An interesting race. Alonso drove well...Kimi did his usual. Felt sorry for Montoya and Button. Mclaren again miss an opportunity to finish 2 cars on the podium!

And Ralf was the biggest gainer of the race with the safety car coming out so many times. I dont think he deserved 3rd place.
