You know F1's having a great year so far when i still can't pick out an obvious pick to win. Mclaren maybe, but can't be for sure.

There's currently predictions for a wet race. Therefore, it's whoever chooses the right strategy. Mclaren probably haven't got a chance, so more likely Red Bull or Scuderia Ferrari Alonso.

If it's dry, get your best pillow ready, If it's wet, anything can happen. But in all reality, this track sucks. Two passing oppritunities, un-needed turns. Just, very strange layout. It's not my favorite F1 track.

Karthikeyan couldn't win, even if he were the only human on earth. Probably be beaten by a Platypus in the Caterham..

All-Mercedes front row because of Hamilton's penalty. Kobayashi will go from third because of that!

Saubers ahead of Ferrari, with some veiled threats here and there, that should change

Finally stayed up long enough to watch a race this season, now only have to get through freakin pre-race. Any others burning the midnight oil? Pulling for my Saubers as usual, Kobayashi in particular. He needs a good run today

A most interesting race, it is awful close. This is some really good racing with passing all around! Vettel is awful and is really struggling. Also, pitstops under way around 9 laps in.

What else can I say? Ross Brawn's 1st F1 win in over 2 years, Mercede's first F1 win in god knows how long, Nico Rosberg's first career win, and most of all, it's the son of Keke Rosberg. This race has not disappointed me. Despite all of this, I don't know how to feel about looking forward to the next round.

F1 keeps one upping themselves for best race of the year lol.

Amazing race once again. Great win for Rosberg which in turn legitimatizes Mercedes.

Bahrain i believe will sadly break this streak with the civil unrest causing a 2005 US GP fun and games.

Simply incredible. Quite frankly, I've never seen an F1 race this close throughout the entire race distance. Even though it was Rosberg's race to lose, it was nose to tail throughout the field behind him. Passing all around, overall terrific racing.

Who's ready for some Molotov Cocktails at Bahrain?

This was the second F1 race that I watched from beginning to end and it was totally worth staying up for. If Button's crew haven't messed up that final pit stop he could have challenged Rosburg. Rosburg definitely deserved it though. Three races, three different winners. Great way to start the season.
