Liuzzi is doing a Superb Job, he is just point behind Michael and two ahead of Webber.

Bahrain : he started from P12, finished in P9 (2 points)
Australia : he started from P13, finished in p7 (6 points)

Yeah, Liuzzi is making his mark. ATM Sutil bit out of luck like Vettel. Overall Force India is in great position this year despite few key personnel departure.

When was the last DNS?

I think Glock at Japan last year counts as a DNS

Webber has been given a reprimand, no penalty

Yeah, I can list a few examples in recent years where drivers have been penalised for less but I suppose I'd rather see drivers risk a clash than just immediately get a penalty as F1 in recent years has become too strict and kind of 'OH MY GOD, SLIGHT CORNER CUT, BAN HIM' and we need to go back to reel racin'

Actually on second thoughts, and after the anger of waking up at 9am and having to watch the race on a DVD has passed I have to agree with what they were saying on the forum that penalising that would set a bad precedent.

Excellent win for Button and McLaren however.

Its the third time in four years that the champion's first win of the year came in the second race:

2007 - Alonso (Malaysia)
2008 - Raikkonen (Malaysia)
2010 - Button (Australia)

The other two years, the driver that won the first race: Raikkonen in 07 and Hamilton in 08, won the championship.

Also, the two races so far have been won by drivers who changed teams over the winter, usurping their established team mates

Schumacher was with Alonso after lap 1 - look how far apart they were at the end. Sobering stuff really, he had no pace today at all and so far has been consistently outpaced by Rosberg.

Not a big deal. Alonso had Ferrari which is very much faster than Mercedes and level of confidence in the car is not at par with Alonso/Rosberg.

Lotus still have a 100% finishing record as Trulli did not start the race.
