Faster doesn't count if you run out of fuel before the end.

Unless you know something different it sounded like the radio said concern for both cars not just one.

Agreed, I read later that the damage made Kimi .25 seconds slower per lap. It's amazing what he was able to do. I was kind of hoping for more from our friend RoGro. However, the true highlight for me was Vettel missing the podium at the wire! Yes, I'm a Vettel hater. So, sue me!

No! Alonso is very cool. Honestly, it's based on pure personality asessment. To me, the other top guys (Weber, Hamilton, Alonso, Massa, Rosberg, etc.) all race with passion, but respect each other, their teams, and the sport. Vettel exhibits none of that, and just seems to be only concerned with himself at any expense. That tends to rub people the wrong way (unless of course you are wired similarly, in which case you probably think he's awesome).

I was glad to NOT see that 'finger' of his on the podium.. especially after the whole fiasco involving Webber.
His chase for the 3rd in the super softs, chomping down 3+ seconds per lap to close the 13+sec gap was superbly impressive, though.

I think having Vettel in the back of the grid simply makes for more interesting racing.

Yeah the finish of the race was awesome. I loved how Hamilton was yelling for the blue flag on the Caterham in front of him on the final turn!

The reality is F1 has gotten to be very competitive/fun to watch in the last few years with the addition of DRS, KERS, and one tire supplier. Anyone that says it's not fun to watch or that these guys aren't "allowed to" or have the cars capable of "racing", clearly weren't F1 fans as little as 4-5+ years ago, when the races had no passing and were basically 2 hours of cars parading around and the only passing happened in the pits.
Haha.. Your a tard

They found Webber's fuel in Vettel's locker.

Great Race!

It would be interesting to find out why Kimi had such a poor start. He is the master. He was so eloquent at the post-race interview! I wonder what the occasion was. Great thinking on the fly about what he and Alonso were talking about.

If I was a conspiracy theorist it would almost seem that Weber was intentionally sabotaged. But with the constructors title the most important thing, it simply cannot be the case.
