Report New_Punter June 12, 2011 10:13 PM BST
lordbobbin

i see what your saying about him building up the leads.....in one aspect that is true

but in another - the SC allowed him to change tyres when those behind him already had without losing track position so i guess its swings and roundabouts dependent on which way you look at it....

a summary of my race.....

pre race
backed hamilton and button
layed vettel

red flag
got any money i could out of button
used the movement of 1.31 to 1.2 whilst sat on the track to get my money back
layed vettel for £300 at 1.3

Last 10 laps
Almost greened when he touched 1.5 with 3 laps to go and missed it
Ended up with £300 BlushBlushBlushBlush

Hectic - but ultimatly worth it!

Fair enough NP. Vettel's still the best driver there for me, but that was sensational stuff from Jenson - and he might perhaps have done the same thing last GP, had the race not been called off.  Certainly Vettel's had more than his fair share of good luck.

i was against vettel last time as well so i was furious when things seemed to be helping him earlier - i won't deny he's the best driver in the best car (for the moment) but from where he was 5 laps earlier - and to drive so hard knowing that one slip (see vettel) could cost him a podium, was outstanding to see

what a grand prix, I had my 10p on Jenson Button to place. He was stone last at 21st, cheering like crazy when he went through to third after Webber mistake. Then went a bit mental when Button forced Vettel into a mistake.

Classic grand prix, two other classic moments include the drunk marshall falling over and nearly getting ran over. Then Hmailton at the end putting on a brave face and clapping when Jenson took the lead on the last lap. Laugh

Just managed to green out of my Vettel bet prior to last SC phase, but these SC periods influence the races in a matter it's not funny imo. Clearly Vettel the fastest driver if over the whole distance if you add up all laps not done under SC, so he would have been a well deserved winner!

Best race I can remember- for Button to go from 21st to 1st in so few laps- incredible to watch. In hindsight ironic that Button possibly lost Sports Personality of the Year because of his playboy image  to Ryan Gigg (who then had an wholesome image).
