I agree that the commentary was not that entertaining like the previous seasons.Seems Gary anderson will take some time to get into the rhythm.At times he was finding it difficult to identify the drivers also.I am afraid whether the boring races due to new rules will give chance for the commentary team to come up with their trademark sentences like "It doesn't get better than this".

Sorry I'm late but did Webber get any kind of penalty/fine for spitting out those fumes.

It cost Kubica and Sutil dearly. Apna Addy from Force India was looking good for a top-5 finish.

Overall the race was a li'l

Nor for lining his car slightly wrong on the starting grid.

From what I understand, that smoke is caused by overfilling the engine with oil. Red Bull should be given a warning or a small fine to make sure this kind of thing doesn't become the norm since it is pretty dangerous for those following.

Rebull is not HRT. They have been racing for dog's years and should know how much oil to fill.

Not only is it dangerous, its advantageous to RedBull to wipe out 2 guys who would have otherwise overtook them. On top of that they ruined their race. Who knows..this could be a deliberate tactic.

Won't overfilling the engine oil seize the engine? or F1 engines will have the ability to spit the excess oil to those coming behind?

Thumbs up Schumi hidding in pic!!

Wow .. nice find there kraft.wagen!

I read your post yesterday itself, but did not find anything strange in the pic. However while going through some more news about Nando's engine change, I read that Schumi and Alain Prost were late for the photo shoot and got their pictures taken separately, which were later photo-chopped in!!

Read more in link below.

Ha, So you are a Ferrari fan? Just a thought, if we call ourselves a fan of the team then we ought to support the drivers who drive the team. Whiners/Slow-coaches doesn't matter. Ferrari see something more about Alonso than you and me and that's the reason he was hired in the first place.
So I think its time we give respect to the team's decisions. Having watched F1 for 10 years as you say, why didn't you understand that Alonso was on hard tyres and was at the end of a long stint and so maybe didn't have the pace like in qualifying?
That was a bit childish and hence needed correction

Slating a driver if he performs bad is acceptable but to criticize him even when he has done the fastest lap of the race and has won the race is a bit crude, in my opinion.

He was slower to vettel when he was on the softer compound please check your facts and then shall discuss; don't know why am i having an argument with you ; harder compounds are probably couple of seconds slower than softer not six or four seconds

Now since the First race is completed, lets not talk about Good cars and Bad Cars, like wise Drivers.

Fernando has seized the opportunity that was available and has won. Only future races will tell how good he is with his car and vice versa.

Massa was a bit unlucky, but still drove his heart out in his comeback race after almost a year. He's not the one to settle for less.

Vettel ran out of luck, but you cant run him out for the forthcoming races, he's shown he's a good driver and has a good car for being on top, any other driver in his place would have busted the engine and would have retired.

Schumi - After 4 yrs and at his age, he never dissapointed any of his ever following ever growing fans. He was just great in his comeback. He's the one to look out for in the forthcoming races. And we all know, when the "Schumi races, HE RACES" We'll soon get used to the "MICHAEL MAGIC" in the next races to come.

The first race is no indication to the world champion for this year. Next 2 races will tell all.

Lets hope for some exciting races ahead.

Adding a little bit of info to this. I read somewhere that the Ferrari engine is significantly more thirsty than the Red Bull which means Ferrari started the race heavier. Perhaps that's why Alonso was slower on softs?

I guess its going to be the story for first quarter of the season,ferrari is easily quickest,and the drivers specially alonso is a thinking chap unlike some other guys.
I guess it is not about pure racing anymore, apart from good car & driver package,it would depend on good calculative desions when to attack and when to relax.
last race it was not too much between alonso n vtl, at later stages it would have boiled down to one thing,who ever managed the tyres better would have won.
Vettel had alonso chasing him for most part of the race,and no matter what one would say,vettel would have been driving quite more than 100% just to open up a comfortable gap, so that he could drive the rest of the race without pressure and not commit mistakes,we all know what did he manage.while when alonso went into lead,i dont think there was any pressure from any of the driver on grid who could challenge for position 1,i guess if alonso had some competition the best lap would have been another half a second faster.
its going to be hard to take things away from ferrari once in a while vettel or may be hamilton would run faster on track,but those ferraries would still keep pocketing good points in almost all races,while others will have to wait for there turn on the podium!
