Went for Hamilton. All the top 3 chaps drove very well, but he was back to his best: aggressive but controlled.

Very exciting race from start to finish. I hope Schumacher can have a race or two without a silly incident.

:D I agree with Thaddeus!

It was a very good race; I'm only sorry Seb spun himself out of contention :oops: It would have been even more exciting if Seb Mark Lewis & Fernando were all dicing and driving hard.

think Mark's measured response speaks volumes to his intelligence as well as skill; looks like from here to the end of the season every race will be up for grabs to any of the top six machines and drivers.

Yes I agree it sure was an exciting race. Good to see Hamilton driving well. Should be a good finish to the year.
Seb is not looking as comfortable as he was a few races ago.
Mark is looking like the cat that got the cream.

Aye, after the events earlier in the year it's good to see Hamilton driving well again.

The only way for McLaren or Ferrari to have a driver win the title is for both of them to consistently be better than Red Bull (unless something unexpected happens, like Vettel getting ill or suffering multiple reliability failings). Even then, Hamilton or Alonso would need to win or come second at just about every race.

I can't see it happening, but they might get close. I hope so. Whilst I like Vettel, I like close title fights more.

Yes I can't see at this stage anyone taking the title from Vettel but hopefully we can see some different faces on the podium.

Vettel only has to finish 4th or better for the rest of the season. He has done enough in the early part of the season to cruise to the title. Now if Hamilton or Alonso can be the only winners, that will open up the title race.
