In a race like this a shake up in the order is always expected. I am happy for Brawn and Jenson who waited for almost eternity to be in a competitive car. That just goes to show how important the role of a car is in Formula 1. After all the humiliation they had to go through the past couple of season, they surely deserve to drive a good car, which they have.
About Ferrari, well what can one say really. Why did they put wet tyres on Kimi's car on a dry track? is an question that can only be answered by the person who took that decision. Yes, you have to take risks to win. But, that was like comitting suicide. Its all about self destruction with Ferrari these days. I was not surprized to see Kimi enjoying an ice cream towards the end of the race. A clear message why should he care.
But then Ferrari have a better car as compared to Mclaren and Renault that is for sure, and I am certain if they had not made those insane mistakes, they would have had atleast one of their drivers on the podium.
Now, I think Formula 1 is bound to lose a big chunk of fans very quickly. Rules are being changed and then reversed, drivers are being penalised then reversed, people are threatening to leave the sport, teams are aledging others for cheating.
Obviously, Ferrari & Mclaren have a huge fan base. Almost 80% of the sport, and if they keep on going the way they are F1 will start to lose its fan base very very quickly. Of course there will be those like us, who will never lose interest no matter what happens, but then there will be those who'd say what the heck.
