Default Brawn wins--Poor pit stop strategy messes up Vettel's chance

So, Brawn it is in Turkey.. Would have been Vettel if not for the pit stop strategy that messed up his chances. Massa finishes in P6, Kimi in P9- a disapointing race for Ferrari.

He's just doing it too easily, isn't he? One more superb performance by Button and Brawn.
Feel sad for Vettel, but still, good fight with Webber till the finish.
What the hell was Barrichello trying? Bumper car madness! He better pull up his socks otherwise, Red Bull will take away the WCC.

+1 to that, but he did make a determined bid till the last moment. I like the way Vettel drives, always giving it his best.

As for Button, what complete domination!

If not for that mistake just after the start, Vettel would have had it in the bag.
Usually, he wins everytime he starts from pole.
That brawn car is really something, heh?

61 out of 65 now for Button . Brawn seems to be unbeatable . Ferrari was ordinary and McLaren was a formality .

At this rate the F1 championship is gonna be sealed pretty early. Button has had a fairytale season so far, hope he can continue it till the end....he deserves it.

More than Button, I would say Brawn GP deserves it.

But the prob for Brawn is that contructor's championship requires both drivers to do well. If Button keeps winning and barichello doesn't support him, Redbull could still win it.

This season has been all about Brawn and Redbull so far, neither of which are manufacturers. If Redbull can match up with the Brawns for the rest of the season, we could see some entertaining action on track.

The way button is going in this season, he may very well break micheal`s record of 13 wins in a season.

I always believed in his talent and just prayed every year that he gets a good car and a team. Ron has done it for him. Its a perfect combination of man and machine. I love the spotlight that he and his team is getting.

Well isn't it a good thing the medal system wasn't used? Although everyone knows that Button will most likely win it anyway, he won't clinch it for a lot longer thanks to the points system.

Someone made an amazing cartoon of the races so far, the recent Turkey one is hilarious.

Well no wonder Rubens didn't start well. I love the crutch on Webber's car and the pacifier in Vettel's mouth
