Great race. Nice to see the fight between Button and Webber.
Ferrari?
BMW?

Great race, really enjoyed it, even though it was very WET!! Lots of action again and it was great to see the Red Bull's do well. Congratulations Vettel, he is a very talented driver

Never thought of it that way!

Benetton VS Williams
Ferrari VS McLaren
Brawn VS Redbull

I wonder what's their head to head

Okay, after giving up on F1 about halfway through last season they've got me hooked again, I actually sat through the repeat yesterday. More rain and aerodynamic controversy, please.

Ferrari WTF

If Massa's car was more reliable and lasted the whole race, I think he would have finished 4th or 5th and get some points

Ferrari got owned, tough luck with Massa's electronic gremlins. BMW didn't show up at all. The most exciting part of the race was when a Toyota (?) tried to mount the car in front of him.

I was rooting for Brawn all the was, and I want to see Rubens get a victory.

A good race though; lots of action, although I would have liked to see more battling for the 1-2 had Toro Rosso not completely dominated. Off to Bahrain!

Yep, just couldn't remember who exactly was the "mounter" and the "mounte."

I hope we find out this diffusor thing is overrated and Brawn and Redbull trade wins back and forth all season with a few from Ferrari/McLaren/BMW/et al once they get their acts together. It would be a really great season if we saw more than 5 different race winners.

Button seems to get along pretty well with everyone in the post-race press conferences, and Webber and Vettel make a great team. It is certainly a breath of fresh air from podiums of the recent past.

You did see a good race. Because Red Bull is who dominated. Toro Rosso was 8th and 11th.
