11 out of 12 for Michael Schumacher. That is just amazing!
His only threat was Kimi Raikkonen and that threat only lasted 13 laps, he cruised from then onwards. Jenson Button has a superb drive to finish second ahead of Fernando Alonso and David Coulthard. Juan Pablo Montoya was 5th ahead of an impressive Mark Webber while Antonio Pizzonia and Takuma Sato round up the top 8.

A few of the highlights,

  • An engine change for Jenson Button and a rear wing failure on Kimi Raikkonen's car robbed us of a tight fight at the front. Once again everything falls into place for the 6 time World Champion. By contrast Rubens Barrichello was nowhere. Even considering the fact that he had to pit for a new front wing, he should have finished in the points given the car he had.
  • Jenson Button drove a superb race and starting from 13th he ended up second. He would have certainly been challenging Michael had he started from where he qualified. Team-mate Takuma Sato wasn't impressive and just managed to score 1 point.  
  • Fernando Alonso drove a good race and managed to finish 3rd after starting from 6th. It was exciting to watch him battling with Button. Trulli on the other hand didn't perform and his announcement about leaving the team at the end of the season must have something to do with it. 
  • David Coulthard finished 4th, one or two spot higher than his usual finishing place. That could be because he has a better car or because Raikkonen retired!.
    Raikkonen on the other hand could have won the race or it least it would have been very close but his bad luck continues or perhaps it is true that the car cannot handle someone as fast as Kimi!. 
    It is encouraging though to see the McLaren perform well.
  • Juan Pablo Montoya disappointed with his performance in the race. After a strong qualifying he dropped from 2nd and finished 5th. Pizzonia did reasonably well finishing 7th something Marc Gene failed to achieve in 2 races for the team.
  • Mark Webber continues his impressive run finishing in the points for the second race in a row. Expect the Williams announcement soon!
  • Once again the TV coverage was very good with a lot of focus on the fights on the track whichever position they were.

That was another fun race to watch. But again, it's the coverage that makes it fun. There were a lot of great races in the mid-field, and this time we got to watch them. 
For the first time I'm willing to admit that Coulthard didn't look good. He knows how to sell it though! Did you see those half hearted attempts at the end to pass Alonso for 3rd ? He was swerving around like he wanted a piece of Fernando when Fernando's car was mis-behaving for a few laps. They were running in the mid-118's for a couple of laps, and Coulthard couldn't pass him. Anyone else in that car could have passed him. Even Olivier Panis! 
I like what you bring up about Kimi being too fast for the car. I don't think him being too fast had anything to do with his wing cracking, but I think there's something to be said for that. 
I definitely think that JPM & Ralphy are too fast for that Williams. Juan can push that car for a few laps, but he can't do it consistently, because the car won't put up with it. If I was Ralph, I wouldn't get back into that car this season. He has nothing to gain ! 
It looks like the new Toyota is quicker, judging from their lap times. But they can't seem to get it right. I think having Ralph and Jarno in those cars is going to make a big difference. Congratulations to you again Michael, But do me a favor. Don't do that stupid jump you did on the podium this week. You looked like a girl. If you have to jump, stick to your usual jump ! 
3 Weeks until the next race ? What will these web sites talk about? - John N - USA

Well, apart from Schumacher driving off into the distance as usual, this was quite an interesting and encouraging race. 
Big pity about Kimi's rear wing - and quite amusing that he was more disappointed with losing the opportunity to win than the fact he got out of that shunt in 1 piece! 
There were so many great battles going on all over the track it was amazing - now we just need to see this at the front instead of everywhere else. 
What might have been if not for Jenson's engine swap and Kimi's wing. 
Wonder how Mr Pizzonia feels after his outburst claiming preferential treatment against him at Jaguar - seeing Webber finish just ahead of him was quite funny all things considered - never put pressure like that on yourself Antonio! :) 
Looking forward to next race and next season - hope we hear something about Webber at Williams soon. Question is, who else will be there? Antonio? Gene? From what I've seen both had chances and failed to impress. Trulli? .......... Byron F - Australia

As a F1 affectionada I lately only check the results after the race and if the little kraut won I do not even bother to watch the replay of the race. F1 is becoming the most boring race to watch for the last couple of years and if something is not done to make the races more exciting F1 is doomed but having said that I hope Honda will get something to compete and maybe then I and a lot of other people will watch F1 again. 
Even the roundy rounders are more of a race. Just my opinion - Jake H - Canada
