The Chinese GP, after a mind-numbingly boring qualifying session, was just fantastic!

Very exciting finish. Excellent happy podium ceremony, no acrimoney and just an all round good time.

And the sniveling little rat-faced git didn't make the podium. Life is good!

Ah, he's my boy too!

Alonso is superb. His cleverness at passing just before the DRS zone so that the passee couldn't use their drs to re-pass him but he COULD use it to get away from them - brilliant!

Three ex-world champions on the podium in China, and I'm picking that this year's champion was among them.

Last year Alonso showed himself to be a class act in a Ferrari that was less than stellar. On Sunday he showed he is the man to beat. Raikkonen and Lotus could quietly get on and do just that.

Hamilton and Mercedes are likely to continue to be in the play, but I don't see the makings of a champion in that pairing yet; it is still early days there.

I have not really been a fan of F1 in the past; I have always far preferred motorcycle racing, and still do. However last year F1 became a lot more interesting, and intriguing. This year seems to be shaping up for more of the same.

I watched the Chinese F1 GP perchance, when rain halted the Phuket league cricket match, at which I was the scorer. So it was of to join The Digby, landlord at The Green Man, and F! writer for the local rag. It was a good race, and I am glad I got to see it.

Nah.... I reckon Vettel is likely to be thereabouts, but not the 2013 Champion. Things seem to be getting a bit messy at Red Bull this year.

How are y'all feeling about the tires this year? I don't think I like how they're such a deciding factor. I'd rather see the guys driving balls to the wall catch up and pass rather than make up 13 sec but then have the tires go to crap...

I also miss flaming pit crews...

tires have ALWAYS been an issue
it just is more publicized because they tire makers had instructions given to them

I miss 'em too.....

I'm with her...now that he does not have the latest wizardry to decimate the field with he does seem to be a little whiny and selfish. Maybe we will learn to appreciate some real drivers instead of a pinball wizard who can't win without his handicap over the other teams. That is not to say Adrian will not figure something out by the summer break and tear it up again. But it is more fun to watch now.
