1-Best Driver, Trulli
2-Best Team, 1 and 2 entire weekend, Ferrari
3-Best Overtaking, RON DENNIS vs Kovalainen
4-Best Moment, Hamilton light crash with his teammate
5-Worst Driver & Worst Team, Hamilton, Renault (stupid 2 stop strategy for Alonso if he was so empty)
6-Best Rookie, PIQUET!!!, first time finish before his teammate
7-The Most Surprising Moment, Hamilton race, crashing, overtaking on grass, overtaking by radio
8-Comments. Bad race for Alonso and his strategy (team). He loose 2 places on race start, ok, get 1 before first lap and he push hard for a while. But If he was so fuel unleaded, why not 3 stop strategy, It's the track with shorter pit lane!!. And 27 laps with a soft tyre while hard tyre was problematic.

Edited:
Congratullations to Piquet, end the race and before his teammate. And congratullations to Kovalainen, It's the fist time, he get more than I expect from him

1-Best Driver - Trulli, finally he is back on the podium
2-Best Team - Ferrari, gets their 200th 1-2 in qualifying, and another 1-2 finish in race
3-Best Overtaking - Hamilton and Alonso, I was surprised that Alonso let him go
4-Best Moment - Kimi make it to the finish line, I thought he would retire
5-Worst Driver & Worst Team - Button & Honda
6-Best Rookie - Piquet Jr, finally he is got his first points
7-The Most Surprising Moment - Piquet Jr finished in the points
8-Comments - That exhaust pipe ruined Raikkonen's race and cost him the victory, he trails 5 points from Massa but there is still a long way to go, Raikkonen will strike back in Silverstone, and for Lewis just take it easy :cheezy:

Why?. Do you remember Heidfield Radio on canada? "If you are loosing time, let him go". If you are not fighting with another, is better let other overtake and let him go, than try to defense position, sure you loose more second.
