    Awesome race. Yep, a lot more exciting than MotoGP these days!

    Good race, good coverage from the Beeb.

    Worth waking up for.

    I watched it on Sky and flickes between every so often. Many of the camera feeds were shared.

    I think crofty and brundle are starting to gel a bit more which is a good thing.

    There's only one race feed provided by FOM. I think there are some very limited angle options but it's not like the BBC and Sky have their own cameras filming the race.

    Soooooo much better to watch on the BBC and the race was amazing. Proper edge of seat stuff at the end there.

    Was a brilliant race, good to see Rosberg take his first win, but the 8 car train behind him provided some great clean racing. Gutted for Kimi though, his tyres were shot

    Superb race ..... and coverage (apart from a bit of bikering from EJ and DC) ... the first full coverage race I have managed to watch all the way through without fast worwarding any of it in years.

    I cant believe just how much over taking there was and re-overtaking and re-re-overtaking ..... and Webber getting air ! ... shame Shumi's team screwed up his race though

    Lack of experience with the Pirellis, that was. I can't believe they didn't bring him in once Vettel got by

    And yeah, very exciting stuff. I almost had to cover my eyes at a couple of points because I couldn't watch

    Great race, loved the Massa train although it was heart in mouth time when Lewis was trying to get by Its a shame Jenson had a poor final pitstop as I think he would have been on top of Rosberg and put him under a bit of pressure but its great to see Nico grab his first win, it might wake him up a bit

    Vettel doing shit again and not having to listen to horner much afterwards is great

    I did wonder why they kept him out as he was in a cracking position - maybe they run out of tyres?!

    How did Vettel do as well as he did from 11th? Seemed to do an Alonso and just end up near the front for no obvious reason.

    He 2 stopped i think hence his tyres being useless for the last 5 laps. They took a gamble as he started so far back and it nearly paid off. If the race was 5 laps less he may have been in the podium.

    Maybe... let's see, he got into Q3 so I'm guessing he used a set of each tyre in Q1, a set of options in Q2, and another set in Q3, so he would have had two new sets of primes (plus a scrubbed set) and the options he qualified on for the race... so no, they could have brought him in and put a set of scrubbed options on, but maybe he flat-spotted them all or something

    Didn't run in Q3 so had two brand new sets of options that no-one above him had, meant his two-stop was more effective than most

    was a cracking race! Bit gutted that McLaren cocked up the pitstops of one of their drivers again but looks like it could be a classic season. Particulary liked not hearing from Horner! Also liked it that the BBC were told the FIA weren't talking about Bahrain and the first words out of EJ's mouth to Todt were "What's going on with Bahrain?".
