Last year second-placed Vettel got a fairly easy pass on Hamilton (then on pole) due to the slipstream on the long straights, and couldn't be passed in the twisty section. Same thing could happen to Webber.

Importantly, Rosberg has promised to do a gangnam style dance on the podium if he wins.

I may vote Lewis Hamilton if he is added to the poll. Don't know how he even managed to bring a point home with all that happened. There are other candidates though...

Must admit Hamilton was in my mind, but I still think Massa deserves it. He may very well have been the fastest man on the track. I think Ferrari made an understandable mistake not letting him race. He could've, I think, passed Webber and taken Vettel when the German had to conserve his tyres on the final laps.

Still, easy to say that with hindsight. If he'd passed Webber and not Vettel it would only have harmed Alonso's title hopes.

Hamilton did very well given his car essentially broke and latterly acquired a fetching green scarf.

Apologies for not adding Hamilton to the list earlier. We always list the top 10 to choose from and Hamilton wasn't added by mistake
