what a race..............and team orders lol. Vetell did what he had to do, and Rosberg should've done the same if he wants to have a chance of winning the championship.

What do you guys think about this year pirelli's so far ? Everything seems so ass backwards to me. In race one when Sutil switched to super softs at the end of the race with a light fuel load he did not get no advantage over the mediums and now this race seems like the hard slicks were not even lasting as long that the mediums. I know its still early, but Pirelli has got some work to do. any one have plans to go to the COTA race ? I'm trying to gather some friends, but its looking grim. No one i know is into f1 like me. General admission (grass seats) are like $170 for the three day and cheap bleacher seats are $300.

Tires are just messed up, everybody was running slower to save tires lol. I think this tire selection for this year will make cars that are easy on the tires dominate other cars that wear em out too quickly and will end up slowing the pace down to a boring level. I might be down to go to Austin to see the races this year

What a race is right!! Really a super good one!! Im gonna wait a few more races before commenting on the tires. Very strange though that the options and primes were wearing in reverse and that they performed differently on different chassis. Bad call by Alonso early and I lost some respect for Vettel at the end of the day and gained some for Nikko. I wonder what Horner had to say to Seb behind closed doors... ?

I read some articles after that race sunday and found out it was not Alonso's ideal to stay out, his team told him to stay out becuase it was not dry enough to come off the intermediates and they wanted him to stay out a few more laps. I was mad about vettel's pass on weber, and that shit should of never happened. Nikko might of had the pace to catch rebull, but Ross Brawn did not want to take the chance with the tires.

Vettel did pass Webber fair and square, they told him not to, but this is racing, you want to make an omlet..........you got to break some eggs. And Rosberg should've done the same in my opinion, he probably had a great chance in catching Red Bull and possibly getting a 2nd place.

And Hamilton going to the wrong team pits had me laughing for a while, that guy is something else lol.

If I am not mistaking weber did the samething to vetel last season, but I don't remeber if team orders were in involved or not. I was laughing too when hamilton pulled into the wrong pits. Atleast they were nice enough to get out of the way fast enough. Im mad were have to wait 3 weeks for the next race, looking like its going to be another good season and these shoty tires will for sure keep it interesting.

Gonna be a good year for sure. Looks like Hamilton has the benz up to pace. The Red Bulls are there, Ferrari is decent and I bet McClaren will be on pace soon as well.
