Alonso
"I'm very happy because we saw Massa stopping two laps after me, so the qualifying performance was good. The team will keep working and we've found a good direction to go. Step by step we can get there."

Button will take 3 points! That's great considering pre-season tests.

Either our commentators are idiots or they don't have live timing, they think Button got there by doing a 1-stop strategy
