It was Kimi who was the driver of the race. He was pressuring Hamilton greatly and Hamilton ended up giving way because he couldn't take it anymore. Flag:##

Still though, points to Massa for working his way up. He worked his way up much better than Australia when he had to start from the back.

If he would have a problem he would be in the pits longer and maybe his race would enden, now he went to the pits they started and he was away.

it was kimi no doubt. I think they light-fueled hamilton in order to secure pole and control the 1st stint of the race and eventually handing them(mclaren) their home gp win. but sadly for them it didn't work for Alonso ^_^. btw hammy's 1st inlaps were in the low 1:22s(I was surprised) while kimi was in high 1:20s,amazing!!

With the law of probabilities, Hamilton is bound to have a failure of some sort eventually. Alonso might even be the culprit for that because he might suggest to Lewis to do something that could be detrimental to Lewis...

Kimi didn't deserve to be the driver of the race IMO, because he made a critical mistake in qualifying and took 2nd when he should've easily been on pole, and he won by only a 3 seconds gap (after the 2nd stop) with a much better car than the mclaren.

I think the best driver on pace was Alonso, then I'd also mention Kubica for keeping 4th specially with Massa's attack, and Massa as well for his great comeback, gave us some nice overtakes.

Kimi & Alonso had quite an easy work to carry out, Lewis made mistakes, so Felipe for me! Yellow_Colorz_PDT_15

well kimi got held up from lewis for nearly the whole first stint, i reckon it cost kimi atleast 10 seconds. a "much better" car? i think lewis's performance made it seem that way, alonso was just about a tenth and a half off the pace, ferrari do have the slight edge but not "much better". kimi was the driver of the race, maybe not the weekend but in the race he was
