Very happily suprised to see Kimi win first, he clearly knows what he's doing.
Also, for anyone living anywhere near Texas. Go to the Austin GP this year! Went last year and it was an extraordinary experience I will never forget. Not just the race itself but the whole auroma behind the weekend, meeting so many internationals and seeing all the posh in the sport.
Couple of points for me.
1) Vettel's pass at the end was BS. The main reason for me being that Webber let up last few laps based on team orders to preserve tires. Had he raced hard, no way Vettel would have caught up and made the pass. That's the biggest reason I think Webber was pissed, he had it in the bag and Vettel passed out of the blue. Had he really been right behind him with, say, 10 laps to go, don't think it would have been as big of a deal.
2) Although I understand all the $$ behind the sport and why team orders happen, I think they should stop. It is bad for the fans. If I am paying $500 + for race tix & travel (which I have), I want to see a RACE, not a finishing order based on team orders. I will always love F1 and will likely go to another race, but in the end this is an entertainment business that would be nowhere without the fans, so they should try to make it as best for them as possible.
Already looking forward to China!
