    An absolutely fantastic race again, this year looks like it will be one of the best.
    Racing going on through out the field, absolutely no lack of entertainment.
    Hats off for Lotus, 2nd & 3rd...... :-bd

    Raikkonen...don't let me say I told you so, oh, I just did...... :ymsmug:

    BBC F1 co-commentator David Coulthard
    "It's a great comeback for Kimi Raikkonen. He's not a man to say too much out of the car - he does his talking on the track."

    Di Resta had a good race as well but it it was disappointing to see Button out, not good for my Badger points.

    BBC F1 co-commentator David Coulthard
    "Paul di Resta has done a great job this afternoon - he's the only man on two stops to make it work. Once more Force India and Paul di Resta are making good use of that alternative strategy."

    BBC F1 co-commentator David Coulthard
    "I suspect that was an engineering call. They would have said 'Jenson you've got to come in because there is an unsafe pressure in your tyre levels'."

    Both Williams out of the race was a shame.

    Man of the match, Raikkonen.
