Can see why people think Maldonado is terrible, he does make very silly mistakes and crashes. But, I'll give him a bit more time before drawing my judgment on him. He had a promising race today, except when ousting Grosjean off the track. Surprised he wasn't given a penalty. But, consistency is never there. Another thing on Maldonado, battered Senna over the weekend. Whether Maldonado is given the better car, thats a different story. But wouldn't surprise me if his sponsors had told Williams to give him all the best upgrades.
No surprise the Mclaren ran away with this race. Dominant qualifying. But the Red Bull was a bit closer than qualifying pace showed. They had a nice drive. Still sceptical on the Ferrari. Alonso's rivals had either crashed or fell behind, and Massa was terrible. Nico was a bit silly with the tyres, burned through them, and was left with nothing when every other car had that bit more. Wasn't helped by the Maldonado crash, think he was the one who took all the depris. Great for Kimi to score well on his return. The midcard racing this season will be fantastic. They all seem to be around the same pace.
Also, thought the BBC coverage was great. All they've seem to have done is taken out the dead air and made the show faster paced. Bring on Malaysia.
