Yup, an error in judgement by Sutil cost him a sure points finish.

And I reckon that the honeymoon period for the Brawns is finally over

That will be fun to watch! If he was in one in today's situation, I think he would have passed Barichello

error in judgement for sure - not sure though whether it was on Sutil's part.. but the finnish ghost-man keeps haunting team India

You know, the pit tactician in Force India should have done better. When Sutil was in such a fantastic position, they should have kept him in clear air for as much as possible. If they'd thrown in an extra second of fuel, he'd have come out behind Kimi and that would have translated to fifth (then fourth due to Kimi retiring). They misjudged that timing and put Sutil in a dangerous position. Racing drivers will definitely fight because they're full of adraneline and its the tactician's job to keep a level head and look at things in better perspective. Sutil could have done better but poor job there by the tactician for inducing such a scenario.
