Let's face it, no one likes the pass for the lead to be done in the pits, but that has been the way road racing works many times. Ferrari pulled it off and they have proven to me that San Marino wasn't a fluke like last year. Bridgestone seems to have a handle on the tire situation finally and the 248 is working well.
Renault I think has also come back to the pack a bit. Watching Fisi not on the podium when his car isn't in the garage shows that Alonso is getting the most out of the car. Sorry to say it Fisi, it doesn't matter how much Villeneuve held you up in qualifying, you ain't getting the most out of the car.
It was also good to see Massa get on the podium, Rubens in 5th, and Rosberg in 7th after starting last. Good drivers with hard luck getting a good result.
So what is up with Mclaren? The car is clearly not up to what it was last year. Despite Montoya's engine blow up this weekend, the Mercedes isn't blowing up nearly as much as it did last year. Seems odd that the new v8 and better reliability than the old v10. One can suspect they aren't pushing it as much this year.
For next race the question will be how well Michelin performs. The comments on the Speed TV broadcast mentioned they may have been suffering from tires that were not right for the temperature. Apparently Bridgestone figured that out, or guessed right.
Ferrari keeping pace
Webber, how many hydraulics failures can one man have?
RedBull/Toro Rosso: 4 cars, 3 retirements
Same old story
Honda qualifies well, but falls back during the race.
Will someone get Super-Slow Aguri off the track or give them last years BAR chassis, this is ridiculous
