Driver of the day...

Errrrr.

M.Schumacher - nothing special
Alonso - quick but tactical mistakes from Renault screwed it up
Montoya - Possibility, done well from a slow car
Massa - Nope - done nothing.
Raikkonen - Again possibility - jumped a few places by having a heavy fuel load
Webber - wasn't expecting much from him - was pleasently surprised

Like Martin - can't think of anyone who's stood out.

Just the same as last years race except that Ferrari were in front of Renault this time, Alonso was making quite a few mistakes when trailing MS.

Good win for MS and Ferrari, the revisions for the car seem to be working well :).

Boring race :(

Villeneuve went from 8th to 16th at one point - lost 25 seconds in the pits, we really need better TV directors

They look quick from free pratice until the first pit stop, then it all went a bit south.
If this was a track where you could pass they would have been in real trouble.

Certainly seemed that way - until the true speed came about in the second stint. ;)

Alonso looks very unhappy. Montoya looks happy.

Webber did well for Williams too...but it seems like Rosberg isn't the same on these older tracks than the wide stop and go Tilke tracks

Problem is Schuey makes something hard look easy. Alonso should have passed him, or at least made some effort. Wimped out IMO. Montoya or even Villeneuve would have gone for it. What had Alonso to lose? Still Schuey drove well to keep in front.

Moment of the day has to be Button driving off with the fuel rig! Was classic. Bet they wish they had let him roll over th line last race and get the 3 points. He would have qualified 2nd this week, then taken the 10 place drop anbd started 12th; could very easily have finished in the same position or higher. Big mistake by them if you ask me.

Like last year with Alonso leading for 30 laps?

This is not a circuit you can overtake on - as such it really needs to be dumped and go somewhere like Zandvoort, Kyalami , Zolder, Spa-Francorchamps, Watkins Glen, Zeltweg...
