So Alonso beat both Vettel and Button in a straight up fight. Not bad for a guy in the fourth fastest car on the grid. It's a good thing the lotus' don't qualify well because they'd be trouble if they did .

I think the penalty on Vettel was a bit harsh. Dropping him behind Button would have been fair, but I guess the 20 second penalty was the precedent.

There's going to be a meeting tomorrow where they will probably "clarify" the engine mapping rule. I wonder if that will spell the end of RBR dominance? Apparently, they've been coming on strong since they started using it, but it seems to be clearly against the rules.

So, another tight, exciting race, and another chance to watch a master at work. It's a huge difference from Australia, and now with a commanding lead, I believe.
