Once again we were denied seeing one of the top drivers in the mix, although I think Hamilton would have probably just driven away at the front, making for a completely different race and probably lower scores.
I don't like carnage making it an exciting race so I've scored it eight. However there was laughter, excitement, anguish from start to finish so one of the best. As Bro said could have been a very different race had McLaren not 'done a McLaren' but I can't distinguish between Alonso, Hamilton or Raikkonen for driver of the weekend.
He made several mistakes in the race and banged the barrier in quali yesterday, pitted twice and needed a nose cone change. It was far from a perfect drive, more lucky and benefitting from being able to have a car in complete race trim which none of the others had. He didn't give up and made some really good passes but the others were almost perfect given their machinery.
I know siffert_fan which is what I meant by these are the best guys at capitalising on opportunities. And it may have been risky but those risks were much easier to take given they had nothing to lose. They don't play it safe, they are great with strategies and this together with the fair amount of errors in front/safety cars etc and the fact that his car was miles faster on a straight line than yesterday meant getting up to third was that much easier than it may have been had he stuck to the original set up.
