Can't believe that Jenson got pole position.

There has been a massive accident on lap one... taking out Alonso, Hamilton and Grosjean.
Luckily everyone seems to be ok.

I don't think anyone will vote for Grosjean as driver of the day, looks like he was the sole responsible for the disastrous crash at the start.

It was still a good race, great drive from Button, Vettel, Hulkenberg and others.

Where did Button get that performance from???? Haven't seen him looking that good for ages.
Well done and yes I gave him DotD!!

Button is well-deserving, however I gave DotD to Vettel who offered some nice moves on Sunday. Great driving again!

Never saw the Button pole coming, especially with such an immense gap to everyone else. After that I could see the race (for him) going as it did, but it's such a shame we were robbed of the chance to see how the Saubers, Alonso and Hamilton could've done.

Edited extra bit: apologies for the double post. I got an error message after the first attempt to post it.
