    Alonso again

    Another win for the vertically challenged.

    A good race, but Kimi needs to get rid of his anti-luck. He must be frustrated to just battle for 3rd place.

    I suggest voodoo.

    But ... with Schumi just 1 second behind

    All good things are eight

    As the season goes on Schumacher will age more, becoming slower so the gaps of his losses will get larger.

    Walter Wolf said after the race that Alonso definitely isn't going to win the championship this year, now that Ferrari is competitive again.

    Re: Alonso again

    For Ferrari to have a successful campaign with their Bridgestone tire platform, Felipe Massa will have to play an integral part in their team-activities.

    I know its "illegal" but everyone does it (i.e. last season last race for the constructors cup Fisi blocking so Alonso could widen his gap for the pits).

    With increased tyre changes in this season, pit strategies by teams are integral for every team.

    I wouldn't count out Alonso. A lot of people (including myself) don't like him, but he just goes out and performs...rarely making a mistake.

    Re: Alonso again

    I had to laugh at Schumi's reaction to Alonso's "bull fighter" moves on the podium - I'm sure that made Dr Phil nearly blow a gasket or throw up!

    Yeah.. For a second Schumi though he can do to Alonso what he did to Barrichello last year at Indy.

    I completely agree! If Massa stayed in the second position for the first few laps (like good ol'Rubens would do!), Schumi would have been able to build more of a gap, and possibly win the race!
    Let's face it it was the 2nd pit stop that won Alonso the race! The Renault crew was fantastic!

    Re: Alonso again

    go go go alonso. finally formula 1 is like what its supposed to be....a race !

    if you remember how alonso fought off schumacher while coming out of the pits you have to agree that he is the next champ in formula !

    I agree with that statement too.
    It looks like this year could be very exciting. Renault, Ferrari, Honda, and McLaren all look very strong.

    Re: Alonso again

    It's going to be an extremely entertaining year. I think everything is up in the air at this point. McLaren looked REALLY strong considering where Kimi started (an incredible drive for sure). Ferrari is back, no doubt about it. Renault, Honda and definitely Williams will be in the hunt.
    Williams' new driver, Nico Rosberg, who is freaking fast and can drive VERY well. He had an incident right at the beginning of the race and he had to pit early and was taken into the garage to change something, he then came out and had one extra stop as compared to all the other points paying positions (except Kimi). He came in seventh and was passing people the entire way left and right. He also, in his first ever Grand Prix, had the fastest lap of the race! They said that he was accepted to study engineering in Europe at a prestigious school, but went racing instead. He is very technically savy. Frank Williams has a 50 question test all the drivers must take prior to being signed as a driver for Williams, Nico Rosberg scored the highest EVER on the exam.
    This is going to be a fun year!

    Good observation and input.
    Rosberg is a man to follow, no doubt.
    Driving the way he did in his first F1 race is unheard of, and from the single race he has been in, I'd say he will in the top 4 this season and a champ eventually. He seems like a combo of Schumi (ability to make the most of a car) and Kimi (never quitting and raw talent)...and that spells bad news for the rest.
