Re: F1 2012 thread
Loved the race. Button did great in changing conditions (is anyone surprised?) and picked up a deserved win. Alonso did all he could, and push beyond the limit at times, but unfortunately wasn't enough. It was good to see Massa get his first podium in ages at his home GP. His emotions told there. Hulkenberg did an immense job. 5th is still a great result yet he was in it for the win! 2 mistakes cost him though, but I do wonder what would have happened had there not been a safety car and it was just Hulkenberg and Button going for it. I reckon JB would have eventually had him (Button's always been a smart racer). Vettel, did great to fight back the way he did but I thought the boy was lucky. Not the yellow flags but the incident at the start with Senna and Perez. If Hulkenberg got a penalty for making a mistake passing Hamilton and unfortunately taking him out of the race, how come Vettel did not get a penalty for taking Senna and subsequently Perez out too?
Great, chaotic race. Brazil is a great season-ender because it generally throws a lot of curve-balls. Depressed now F1 is over until March and unfortunately we will likely lose one of or both of Kobayashi and Kovalainen, 2 drivers who deserve to be in F1.
