agreed to what was said above, the monotony was so obvious that even the commentator started drifting at a point. it was lovely sight to the eyes with all the light, and that was it! lots of bling!

Barrichello had a problem in his last pitstop. I think his car stalled. Wasn't shown on the TV. And also the safety car came at a very opportune time for Button but it sort of worked against Barrichello.

+ 1 to that. I hate Monoco and Singapore circuits mainly because of the lack of overtaking opportunities that the circuits present itself . Once you are in pole and if the driver or the team does not screw up it is a done deal.

Meanwhile, let us hope the Spa-Francorchamps organizers work out with Belgian authorities and arrive at some sort of settlement. We cannot wait till 2027.

When Webber crashed, Brawn got Barrichello to pit while keeping Button on track. They probably did it expecting a safety car, which didn't happen, so Barrichello lost out an opportunity to post quicker lap times, while Button ran for few more laps with low fuel. Same way Button jumped Heikki too.

Immature driving by both Rosberg and Vettel.

Vettel looked really good for a win and was clearly faster than Hamilton but simply threw it all away with that stupid pitlane overspeeding incident. C'ship is also sliding away now.

Great pics Grease Monkey. The pitlane looks much smaller than what I had in mind. So who was your 'sponsor'?

The pit access was just prior to the start of qualifying... the driver's were apparently with the race engineers according to one of the staff I spoke to!
