Felipe Mass – I think the next time Felipe gets pole position against I’m going to place a bet on him to win the race… ;)

Lewis Hamilton – A fantastic drive given the circumstances – Bridgestone recommended he run a 3-stop race to avoid a tyre failure like he had last year, despite them constructing a more durable tyre. If he was on a 2-stopper he probably would have won.

Heikki Kovalainen – Heikki, Heikki, Heikki… A brilliant qualifying and then you dropped the ball with an extremely poor start. Can’t really blame Kimi for the tyre failure. For a circuit that is supposed to be good for passing, it seemed to take Heikki a bit of time to get back ahead of people who are normally “backmarkers”. 

Kimi Raikkonen – Drove a fairly smart race to bag some good championship point. Wonder if he would have pressured Lewis more in the closing stages if he was behind in the championship…

Nick Heidfeld – I’ve put Nick ahead of Robert Kubica here because he is often left in the shadows. What a great drive in the background to leapfrog both Alonso and Webber in one hit. :)

Robert Kubica – Brought in another good result for BMW, but they didn’t look as shiny as in previous races.

Mark Webber – Great drive in both qualifying and in the race. So happy the car seems to be holding together! :)

Dogs on the track – Thankfully no dogs got on the track during the F1… but what about poor Bruno Senna hitting a dog during his GP2 race. This sort of thing just shouldn’t happen at an international even.

Giancarlo Fisichella – Last, but not least, Giancarlo – it was your fault!! 8)
