    Button's still unpredictable here. Their two stop strategy here might give them the edge in the later laps. Vettel is currently ahead by a larger margin in front of Hulkenberg.

    The bad race pace on the Mercedes I think has more to do with Hamilton's constant need to defend rather than a problem with the car itself.
    Vettel looks like he is 3 stopping though, Button only 2...

    defend??? :confused: he's not defending against anything???

    Lib annoyed that with all her hard work he goes quicker with chunks missing?

    I would have lol'd hard had the wheel forced Vettel to crash, sadly it did not.

    he should be okay ahead of Vettel I would have thought, Kimi looked faster though so I can only assume he will get past eventually.
    I'm still impartial on the Malaysia drama but it would certainly have made things a lot more interesting.

    He's trying too hard to defend against Hamilton though and consequently he's losing his initial gap between him.

    I just can't stand Vettel tbh

    oh you mean Button? your post made it sound like you thought Hamilton was defending??? he past Button but Kimi has better race pace on these tyres.

    Yea, Alonso seems in position to win atm.

    Kimis start screwed him a bit and then hitting Perez didn't help.

    Hulk could be in play for podium though.

    Kimi should get a bonus for his contribution to the aerodynamic work on the Lotus.

    what race are you watching exactly? Hamilton's car just doesn't have the pace to keep up with the Ferrari...he lost time to Kimi behind him though which will hurt him, Button didn't do anything wrong in defending either, their not team-mates anymore...

    Yh I was hoping that Hamilton could push out some fast laps
    Yh this Kimi Hamilton battle could be very close near the end of the race
    No of course he didn't but Hamilton kept on getting close and was not able to execute a pass. Also I thought it would be better for Button to just let him pass

    Hulk only lasted like 5 laps on the softs, he's down to like 11th now and potentially an unsafe release as well by his pit crew
