No excuses with the spark plug, race every inch like life depended on it.
what nonsense is that! :lol:

1 - Best Driver - Alonso (gr8 start) and Vettel (speed but unlucky)
2 - Best Team - Ferrari
3 - Best Overtake - I only saw Alonso - Massa! (Busy with live timing)
4 - Best Moment - hmmm ... Race start
5 - Worst Driver - N.A. (Too many with too little mileage ... To point Chandhok as worst driver is absolutely childish ..guy had 5 laps experience and was brave to race. )
6 - Worst Team - HRT ..not ready for f1!
7 - Best Rookie - Nico Hulkenberg (not clean but has the speed)
8 - Biggest Surprise - Vitantonio Liuzzi and Force India's race pace :blink: After QLF, i thought they will get faded in race. Not many retirements!

9 - General Comment - 5/10 Average
Espn Star Sports Coverage - dumb

Why? Engine was performing strangely. I think few of you are expecting too much from super human f1 drivers.

Yes, we know the engine wasn't great but his erratic pace was still not brilliant! He could have driven better after his problem. Remember MS winning Spain 2004 with a cracked exhaust he developed mid-race?

Do you remember MS doing well in Bahrain 2010? :p Cos I don't.

Also, according to Vettel, he had the idea to start weaving left and right to try and fix the problem and after doing a bit of this and caning the middle sector, he was able to get faster laps. I think that accounts for when he suddenly get those seconds back from his slowest laptime.
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

1 - Fernando Alonso
2 - Ferrari
3 - Kubica over de la Rosa
4 - Vettel's failure, unfortunately for him
5 - Webber
6 - HRT, obviously, and Sauber
7 - Hulkenberg
8 - Both Lotus finished the race

9 - Boring. I have always been of the opinion that the season opener should have remained in Australia. Bahrain is one of those tracks (with Abu Dhabi and Valencia) that I would happily get rid of.
2000 - San Marino (Friday)
2001 - San Marino (Saturday)
2003 - Italy (Sunday)
2008 - Great Britain (Sunday)
2009 - Great Britain (Friday)

Look at last years Malaysian gp, the cars could follow each other pretty closely but now.......what a difference

1 - Vettel
2 - Ferrari
3 - No comment
4 - Alonso's way of crossing the finish-line
5 - Not taking HRT into consideration I'd say Sutil, spoiling his race with just another incident
6 - HRT
7 - Petrov
8 - Red Bull being that much ahead

9 - Really dull race imo, I hope we'll see a better race in Australia and that Mercedes and McLaren can close the gap during the season
