Vettles tires are ~3 laps older. Alonso will take it unless Kimi can some how keep his tires working till the end.

Bring back multiple tire suppliers. Watching drivers get screwed because of shifty tires.

well not the result I was expecting, but an entertaining race nonetheless. Consistency > speed.

Those SS are rubbish. Given their life expectancy they gotta be +2 secs, not this bs <1 sec.

Great way to start off the season for the Iceman. Looks like the newer car that Lotus cooked up has serious potential.

I'm a big Kimi fan so am really happy with the win and his drive today, hope people can stop questioning his motivation for once.

Lotus must not be happy with F1's TV feed, they barely showed them during the race. They need the exposure, hopefully the internet will take care of that. Even the NBC commentaries acknowledged they hadn't talked about about Kimi as he was handily leading the race.

Crazy weekend! Those Q1 crashes were spectacular. How Massa's car took that shunt with nothing but a new nose was amazing. Then Gutierrez mimic'd it exactly.

Sounds like Webber had a software issue on the formation lap that caused his crappy start and lack of KERS for the first 20ish laps.

Sutil was driver of the day for sure. Shame the SS's are that bad. He tried to do what, 9 laps on them? And they were shot after 4. Abhorrent disgrace.

Prediction: Bianchi is going to be "rookie of the year".

2013 McLaren is 2012 Ferrari. They will get it together, though, but a championship run will be hard when they're starting trying to squeeze into the points. Williams seems to be floundering, too, while Force India is quite competitive and should be bringing the fight to Mercedes. Normally on the first weekend of the year I'd expect some wildcards making appearances at the top but it was pretty much the usual suspects. All early days, but good to see the cards played (for the most part). We'll see how much more water Malaysia brings...

Bianchi did indeed impress. He would have been in the Force India after all. I wouldn't be surprised to see him in a Ferrari (has ties with them I believe through the driver academy) if he impresses this season.

Unfortunate that Rosberg had gearbox issues. He and Hamilton we're consistently fast all weekend, looking forward to see if those guys can stay competitve for the rest of the season. Surprised that Jensen and the McLaren team have been struggling so much though. Seems like they're the one's in shambles after Hamilton left, not vice versa.
