Anyways, a very good weekend for Ferrari and Alonso, hope they keep the momentum going.
I still can't understand how one can 'aim' for certain cars while being flung around due to the law of forces..which no F1 driver can comprehend at that moment.

mate, you can put your conspiracy theory to rest.

Ok, reviewed the footage again, seems like he took his hands off the steering wheel at the moment of the crash and the car took its own direction after the hit. And he ricocheted back into the track taking Rosberg with him.
Peace!

Can we have the footage if anyone can post it.

But how come none of the stewards took any action on any incidents that happened during the race.

Is it because nowhere schumi was seen

Sutil and Buemi will lose five grid places at the next race. Sutil was also fined $ 10,000.

But is reversing possible in an F1 car?

One can never really say, what actually happened, but Nico was for sure at the wrong place at the right time.

There is a reverse gear, but in this case, Webber was just a passenger. I guess the impact of the crash would have carried him across the track anyway especially when he's got one front wheel in the air like that and wrecked suspension so no control.

Alonso looks like the one to take the drivers and Red Bull the constructors championships. I am not a great fan of Alonso after what he did to McLaren, but he has been on the pace since Silverstone and he deserves to be champion.

Vettel is becoming the new cry baby? At lap 41 or 42, he was the only driver complaining of bad light!!

Well, Fingers crossed on the C'ship.

Alonso isn't a two-time world champion for nothing.
Being competitive in a fast car is one thing. Winning the C'ship is another.
Alonso's talented in the latter.

Webber's mistake was pretty silly. He came on to the throttle a wee bit early at the exit of the corner, which is a total no-no in the wet. Basic difference in driving between wet and dry is braking and accelerating in the straight line and being a lot more smoother and gradual with both the pedals.
Vettel probably was running a used engine (can someone confirm?) and if it is so, then he must have considered that and nurse it to the chequered flag. Instead, he was setting fastest laps, and trying to do the only thing that he can to win the race. Stay at the front, set fastest laps, maintain a large gap from Alonso so that Alonso won't consider an overtaking move.

In such treacherous conditions, the most sensible drive gets the win and Alonso thoroughly deserved it. Hamilton was also smart to not go hunting, especially after his two DNFs.
Just maturity.

Talking

Alonso was on his last engine to take victory in yesterday's race. He have to win both races next to claim the title. Bulls are still capable. Let us wait and watch.

NB:Since a die hard Ferrai fan and a Alonso hater, I'm afraid of something. Look back to 2006 Suzuka, Schumi leading, engine blowned, Alonso Champ. Yesterday Vettel leading, engine blowned, Alonso .

Cheers!

Awesome race after the weather tested everyones patience for more than an hour and one of the longest races. From a washout situation Korea got a very memorable race.

I couldn't watch the entire race but watched the Webber crash and few more laps. The championship is more exciting than past years. In the beginning of this race year, after the first race, everyone said due to new rules it is going to be a boring year. But sheer competitiveness of some teams like Ferrari and McLaren in taking the fight to the bulls have brought in such a exciting final phase of the championship.

After all the controversies and all that this is what everyone needed. Fight for the championship. Bring on Brazil and Abu Dhabi.

Alonso has a better chance but still RBRs have equally better chance of winning the championship as they are getting on pole position with such ease and walk away with easy wins (unless they press self destruct). As for Alonso all that matters is the start and his engine reliability. Fingers crossed and staying excited for the next race!

Well said Nitrous, Alonso drove really well yesterday.

Yes Vettel was using an old engine. As per the team boss it was done about 1600 kms, while these engines last for atleast 2000 or 2100 kms. So there was a lot of juice left in it. I guess Vettel just it

All the title contenders have used all their 8 engines, however Webber is still at advantage as this new unit of his ran only for a few laps. So Vettel and Nando will have to use a unit which has had less mileage on it, unless the results in Brazil are in the exact same order then Alonso can happily take a new unit with a 10 place penalty for Abu Dhabi .. Tifosi would go crazy.

Guys I don’t think the weather was so bad. Yes the race did start in difficult conditions, but the amount of time the safety car was left on the circuit was a joke.
These are the best drivers in the world (supposedly) and if they cant handle water being sprayed in their face while driving the safest machines on this planet, I am willing to switch places with them any day :-)

I dont think that would be a good idea mate. 10 place penalty = 5th at the race finish. And if he qualifies poorly then its 10+ starting position, in the mid pack and almost sucidal.
