1 - Best Driver
Vettel by a mile. I mean, he had the best car, but he kicked ass with it. 20 seconds up the road without a sweat, qualifying fastest with a sizeably heavier car than everyone else in the top 10, and pitting early to avoid a potential safety car, because there was no need to take his stint to the limit. Everyone else must be shell-shocked. We may have already seen the drive of 2009. Fisi deserves some incredibly honorable mention, taking a poor car beyond its means to finish ahead of many technically faster cars.
2 - Best Team
Red Bull.
3 - Best Overtake
Kubica on Hamilton, around the outside at Stowe. I think it was pretty awesome, and the only move in the whole race to work around the outside properly.
4 - Best Moment
The battles between Alonso/Heidfeld/Fisi and Hamilton/Kubica/Alonso/Heidfeld/Piquet.
5 - Worst Driver
NOT Hamilton or Alonso. Kovalainen for his awful double-movement. I should make it clear that Hamilton and Alonso were on really AWFUL strategies. Their only sin was bad starts. Their strategies and slow cars got them held up behind one stoppers, which ultimately allowed most of the one-stoppers to vault them. It's not like they weren't driving the wheels off those things, hence Alonso's relentless attack on Heidfeld and Hamilton's fights with everyone. They just had poor cars and stupid strategies. When will Renault learn that putting Alonso in the top 10 with a small fuel load will get him the same place as a heavy one would, but with much less fuel on board?
6 - Worst Team
Renault for their idiotic strategy with Alonso.
7 - Biggest Surprise
Nakajima's strategy not working. His race-pace was fine. Running light really helped no-one here.

8 - General Comment
It was good to see Vettel make decent points up on Button. Otherwise fairly boring., with those further down the field battles providing the entertainment to make it up to a 6/10. In fairness it was a joy to watch Vettel win like that, hence 6/10.

China - 9/10
Malaysia - 8/10
Australia - 7/10
Britain - 6/10 - here.
Bahrain - 6/10
Spain - 6/10
Monaco - 6/10
Turkey - 5/10
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

You have to appreciate his way of thanking his fans. This was one of the most spectacular things that happened on sunday there. The way he treats his fans is awesome for his fans (I know what I'm talking about here :p ). By the way, the last donut we saw was Kimi (Spa 07) after his win there, I think ''hmm'' . And donuts are super awesome! :drool:

Donuts are cool, and it is cool that he did it for the fans, but they were kind of ironic donuts. It's not really something that you do, finish 16th and then do some donuts, a thing mostly associated with celebration. But oh well, it proves that he still has fight, something better proved however, by his racing. You can say what you like about him, he's still giving it 100% in that tank, as is Alonso in that taxi.

Absolutely agree with you, but it´s funny how we call cars like the Renault or the McLaren in particular c**p cars, when they´re just about 1 second off the pace in qualifying.

Some years ago, the top ten were always seperated by 2 or 2,5 seconds in qualifying , sometimes you were third on the grid with a second behind the leader! Strange how things have changed hm?
