1-Best Driver
Of course Sebastian Vettel, the Heppenheimer!
2-Best Team
Toro Rosso and BMW-Sauber
3-Best Overtake
Massa against Rosberg
4-Best Moment
Hamilton had to come to box and take the intermediates
5-Worst Driver & Worst Team
I think Kimi Raikonnen, he was driving so bad. Only in the last laps he has shown his real power!
6-Best Rookie
Bourdais
7-Biggest Surprise
Taht Vettel had a good strategy to take the winning. I guessed he was very empty in Qualifying. Great job Sebastian! :thumbsup:
8-General Comment
It was an exiting race. And there was nearly no crash. Except Nakajima! That was advertising for the formula one

1-Best Driver - Sebastian Vettel
2-Best Team - Scuderia Toro Rosso
3-Best Overtake - Massa on Rosberg in the 2nd chicane, but he had to give the place back to Rosberg to avoid penalty
4-Best Moment - Hearing the famous combination of Germany and Italy national anthems
5-Worst Driver & Worst Team - Nakajima & Honda
6-Best Rookie - Nelson Piquet Jr
7-Biggest Surprise - Toro Rosso (The Minardi's DNA team) can win the race with the big margins over the McLaren & BMW

8-General Comment - It was an exciting race, too bad the stewards decide to start the race behind the safety car. Vettel and Toro Rosso did such a great job from start to finish, no mistake and the strategy work pretty well for them. Congrats to Vettel and Toro Rosso :thumbsup:

I agree, I think they should've done a normal start, it wasn't raining like Fuji 2007 lol

Did you see the GP2 race? Even with a safety car start, Javi Villa, Andi Zuber and Vitaly Petrov were all involved in a mega-crash into Rettifilo. I think a normal start would have been just fine, cos they're so much more restrained than the GP2 drivers. Maybe there would have been slightly more chaos on a normal start, but still. I think that the stewards are maybe just scared of tight first corners in the wet.
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

I think they don't want to repeat the tragic crash of Monza 2000 because, as you can see at the start, you couldn't see anything behind Vettel's car!

Didn't see that race,no. But anyway, it's certainly better to be careful than having crashes from the start.

1-Vettel
2-Toro Rosso
3-Hamilton taking Webber after coming out of the pits following his second stop. On cold tyres his overtake was skilled.
4-Podium/Winning team radio. Fantastic to see Vettel on top of the podium, but the understated 'You have won the Italian Grand Prix' on the radio was very funny.
5-Honda. They have two good wet weather drivers so they should have finished in better places.
6-Vettel obviously.
7-Toro Rosso winning a race, and that the first win for a Red Bull car was won by the STR not RBR.
8-Best race of the season, biggest shock since Monaco 1996!

1-Best Driver: Sebastian Vettel. I have to say he had a perfect weekend, the only shame is he didn't put up the fastest lap of the race, but we all know that's reserved for Kimi :)
2-Best Team: Torro Rosso. WHy? well because they had the oportunity to finish on the podium with BOTH cars, if one of the didn't stall on the start.
3-Best Overtake: Hmm... its between Hamilton on Kimi, and Hamilton on Webber
4-Best Moment: Realising that Vettel was faster than Kovaleinen, and that Hamilton had to pit one more time.
5-Worst Driver & Worst Team: Nakajima, Force india
6-Best Rookie: Bourdais, was a lap behind, but still didn't finish as last
7-Biggest Surprise: Seeing Hamilton actually drive quickly around the track.

8-General Comment:
I loved the race, and had the same feeling when i was watching Belgium 1992. A future champion was driving that day, the same as this sunday.

1-Best Driver : Vettel of course, he won his first race, and he deserved it.
2-Best Team : Toro Rosso was freaking good during the weekend. Pole + P4 for Bourdais
3-Best Overtake : Too many overtakes, can't choose one ^^
4-Best Moment : Seeing Vettel win
5-Worst Driver & Worst Team : Honda, Force India ? about same levels ^^
6-Best Rookie : Vettel of course.
7-Biggest Surprise : My biggest surprise was at the start, when Bourdais couldn't start the car. I was hugely disappointed.

8-General Comment : A good overall Grand Prix, with loads of overtakes, some suspens parts with "will the rain come or not?" and so on, a rookie winning his first ever Grand Prix.
