. Lap after lap of pushing, centimetres away from walls, in order to record a Grand Chelem, in the process beating a faster car. Amazing.
I feel obliged to mention Vettel and Kubica also, but frankly, I feel no one deserves to take this away from Alonso.
stonking pace. Also great work by Ferrari in mirroring Red Bull's stop.
Kubica on Petrov
. It was so well worked. Kubica definitely gets the best racecraft award for his consistent brilliance.
Kubica's spree. The last lap was also immensely tense.
Glock, for consistently being awful to lap. He was the villian of the piece in the Hamilton Webber incident. He set it up, when really, Hamilton should have been nowhere near getting a decent tow. He had no bearing on their decision to both go for the same piece of track, but he definitely set it up.
Dunno really. In terms of team pace, probably Macca. In terms of driver combined performance, the Virgins
Hamilton going out for a second consecutive retirement. That's never happened before. Last 4 races = 25 points. Alonso = 68 points.
It was kind of nuts. Incredibly tense and some of the drivers seemed as if they were under some kind of mental stress or strain, because much of the racecraft drivers like Hamilton, Webber and Schumacher are supposed to possess was non-existent today. All in all it was very fun indeed.
