Offs in practice have regularly been seen as reasons to mark a driver down, however, surely it is the effect of that off on the race that matters? If the driver crashes on Saturday morning, and as a result is not able to qualify, that is a poor show, but to have an off on Friday, then to go one to get a good result is surely not a serious issue?
I have voted for Lewis, as I feel that he has been on it all weekend, since first practice, and despite not getting pole, I think he managed the race superbly.
Alonso was also strong, and the result was far above my expectations, and indeed above where I think the car should have been, especially from 5th on the grid.
Jenson was ok, and managed to fight Webber and Massa off, despite having no KERS for a large chunk of the race, I get the feeling that by the time it was all working he was too far off to mount a challenge. I was tempted to vote for Jenson, but it would seem that you are only allowed to place ironic votes for Lewis .
Hamilton - However special mention to the wee Spaniard Alonso for keeping him honest all race.
Hamilton did very well this weekend was in the top 3 of every practice and qualifying session and even if Vettel had been in the race still i do think he'd have had too much on him aswell. Hamilton bar Q3 had the perfect weekend .
