And that was a pretty good race, too!

Good race. One stop was not the strategy!

Lots going on, most entertaining.

that's the first race i've seen in a while, since i don't have speedtv anymore.

not bad, although the drs overtaking seems pretty easy (once you get within that one second window anyway )

the difference in tire life between teams was amazing.

awesome to see sauber on the podium.

The difference in tire life between team mates was even more amazing: Hamilton vs Button!

Clearly, whatever the direction McLaren is headed in, it doesn't suit Button's driving style.

Massa, driving for his job:









Red Bull radio: "don't worry Mark, he'll spin shortly"

Lewis dropped by after the race:

Very nice shots, G. Especially like the second one in the Massa series.
