Alonso seemed to struggle with setup, don't think he quite managed to get the car where he wanted it. You could see straight from the start that he was fighting understeer and oversteer in the corners. Kimi also didn't look to clever at times.
BMW have come on a storm - will make things interesting now that Renault appear to have departed the scene at the top...
Hamilton continues to impress, best debut races ever for any new driver, he does need a win and I thought he might get it here, but he oozes class, calm and confidence. His first mistake will be pilloried but until then let's just enjoy the racing!
Congrats to Massa on a hard earned win, and to DC on the most entertaining drive of the year so far - bet he enjoyed himself - obviously they'd pumped some Red Bull into his fuel tank before the start...
McMerc doing well and that's the main thing at this stage - no retirements and especially not from engine failures.
