TJ13’s quite unwell – so his post race gossip/observations won’t be happening this weekend. .Anyway here’s something I’ve rustled up for us to discuss. John Myburgh
One could argue the most deserving driver of the weekend was in the top three or even top ten however this would not be a true reflection of how the race unfolded. With the limited running during Q1 on Saturday and Q2 starting on a damp track there were flashes of brilliance from a number of drivers.
Names that spring to mind are JEV and his impressive form in Q1, Jenson Button managing to find grip in ever changing track conditions but also thinking quickly after McLaren made an error by sending him and Perez out on slicks in Q2. We also saw a number of drivers escape from crashes without injury or serious damage to their cars i.e. Hamilton, Massa, Gutierrez and Pic.
In the race we saw Raikkonen manage his tyres brilliantly to put the hammer down when needed (he even smiled on the podium) as well as Adrian Sutil leading the race on two occasions. We saw Massa lead Alonso and while we knew this would not last it was good to see him back on form… for a while. Further down the grid Jules Bianchi impressed everyone with a mature drive and giving his team mate a thorough thrashing.
Who would you say was the most deserving driver of the weekend?
