1-Best Driver
Fernando Alonso because he flattered the car and took it higher than it belongs. Pity he had to change tyres at the very end but it was either safety first or a very big risk to end up like Kimi. Honorary mention to Nick H who also drove a very good - and smart - race, but his car is considerably better than Alonso's.

2-Best Team
Toro Rosso. Fantastic how they've improved. But they have a Ferrari engine at the back and not a crappy Renault like Red Bull of course...

3-Best Overtake
Hamilton on Kimi first time. Oh, come on! :) The most talked about, the most replayed, the most memorable overtaking for a long, long time.

4-Best Moment
Kimi/Hamilton fight with poor Nico Rosberg in the middle of it all. Mayhem!

5-Worst Driver
Heikki. Where was he? He's in a McLaren FFS, not in a Minardi! Imagine Kimi or Felipe doing such a bad job compared to teammate, they'd be bashed to kingdom come! :S

Worst Team
Honda. I don't understand how it's possible for them to go from bad to worse, but they have.

6-Best Rookie
Seb Bourdais. Nice job but a bit too much whining - if you opt to stay out on slicks in the wet, you've got to realize you are going to be sloooow.

7-Biggest Surprise
Hamilton's penalty, of course.

8- Comments
No comments, I've discussed this race enough, I'm totally fed up with it. Let's move on. :wave:

1-Best Driver : Kimi Raikkonen. Probably one of the best races for him this year even if he didn't win. He deserved the victory. He finally showed his full motivation during that Grand Prix and I'm sure he'll keep it that way. Hamilton just had luck. I still think Kimi could have changed tires. He would have won the race.
2-Best Team : Ferrari.
3-Best Overtake : Raikkonen over Massa and then Hamilton after Eau Rouge. Heidfeld over the other guys (Vettel, Bourdais and Kubica)
4-Best Moment : Seeing Raikkonen 1st and Bourdais 4th and 5th.
5-Worst Driver & Worst Team : All Honda
6-Best Rookie : Sébastien Bourdais. Like Kimi, he deserved to be at least 5th. If only there were 43 laps, he would surely have beaten Vettel. Hope he'll still be here next year.
7-Biggest Surprise : Seeing Bourdais getting from 3rd to 7th. On French TV this was such a mess, Belgian's images only showed Hamilton going to the victory. This was completely useless as he finished 1st, they didn't show the pitstops (that I only saw in background), they didn't show Alonso, Heidfeld and Vettel overtaking Bourdais.

8-General Comment : An absolutely fantastic Grand Prix. I really had fun watching it with Kimi 1st and Bourdais 5th. I was praying for the rain not to come. Yet it did. This was a huge disappointment for me.
