Half Points will be awarded and race won't start again. If it will be this way, it would be a massive ****up.

Oh dear... That would teach them the lesson to start races earlier here.

I'm thinking what could they do to make F1 cars drive in these conditions. Perhaps allow massive car height to stop aquaplaning.

Yep - just like 2009 in fact.

No way. Acting like drama queens in front of the whole European audience still beats having a good race with no one watching on TV.

Wow why is F1 teams retarded? they could've been 6 sec quicker per lap. First lap by ricciardo was 5 sec quicker. Then sauber decided to pit 1 lap later and loose 6 sec to alonso. WHY?!?!?!?

Not going to comment on the whole Sauber / Ferrari issue. People will believe what they want themselves.

Congrats to Alonso. Good drive.

McLaren are literally pathetic though. 2 abysmal pitstops for Hamilton on top of shit calls...

Button and Vettel just drove into Narain... Both can only blame themselves.

Amazing to see Mr. Sauber get a bit emotional and what an exceptional F1 race. Now if Koba were to up his game a bit as well..

Well Ferrari and Sauber are not that far off. Where did Mclaren lose their pace is the question.

Also when changing tires it looks like Lotus suddenly was really slow.

And maldonado... so bad luck this time...

You mean the fact it's a conspiracy? That they told him to back off and he made it look like an error?

No sign of any penalties for avoidable contact though, wonder if that would have been the case if it were another driver...

Alonso was faultless today, he makes Massa look like a complete fool. Perez was brilliant, but I think Sauber lost the race for him, with the delayed pit stop and the awful radio message that put doubt in his mind, Perez isn't the kind of driver to crash in the last few laps, they should have been telling him to go for it. Talking of brilliant, how about Senna with Williams, his uncle would have been proud of a drive like that. On the whole I really enjoyed that race, McLaren and Red Bull were ****ing useless though!

Agree with everything here.

For Sauber to basically say, stick with 2nd is just stupid. They should of said something along the lines of go for first but if you have to just hold 2nd.

Interesting enough Kimi picks up solid points again. I think Vergne deserves a mention too, driving all that time in the early part of the race on just inters was quite something.

Could say the same for Grosjean on lap one. Pretty similar to Ham/Webber in Canada last season which was investigated. I think Jenson was just caught out by the slowness of the HRT, and I thought Narian moved across on Vettel, but I could be wrong as most seem to think it was Seb's fault!

Yeah, without the messed up pitstop and too chatty engineer, who might've cost him concentration for a while, he would definately win.

Still, great race, great result and good future for him. Now only they need better Q pace and/or bit of luck.

Well again, everyone will see it differently. I personally think the error was genuine, but the call itself was somewhat fishy. Not that it matters though... Nothing will change.

Ferrari young driver scheme racer, ferrari powered sauber..

They told him to basically keep second, then gave him that message about certain turns being wet and take caution.. A bit of behind the scenes logistics going on i reckon.

*edit*

Taken from DailyMail transcript of the race, sums it up perfectly to be honest:


Lap 50: This can't be right? Sauber are suggesting to Perez to be 'cautious' in passing Ferrari. Surely not... a first race win is up for grabs here. Remember they are powered by Ferrari, though. As I say that, the Mexican runs wide, leaving him five seconds adrift of Alonso. Oh no!

Lap 51: Perez is coming back at Alonso, but I fear it will be too late. What were Sauber playing at with that radio message to Perez. A delayed pit-stop, a conspicuous radio transmission... they've done everything possible to stop their man winning.
