Obviously I am pleased for Lewis, but as big an F1 fan that I am, this was a boring race

I still feel it was fairly quiet compared to some of the great racing we had last year

Now let's talk about F1 in '75 to mid 90's...

Then there was some action...

Definitely agree with you there. The late 80's is when I first became interested in F1. Some great races.

The Senna/Mansell battle in Monaco in 92 is one of my highlights

A bit shabby with the (few) number of cars actually racing...... still, the season is on and it looks very much like a McLaren Mercedes walkover already :roll:

Whilst you can't blame MM for this it does show the other teams as being some considerable distance (technically) behind them. Too soon to tell if Honda can get their act together given they were quite a dominant factor some years ago.

Shame for Button - he deserved 'something' for getting his car to the end of the race!

And, lastly, nice to see some new faces making a mark on the sport too. Interesting times ahead.

Merc deffo made a few mistakes with their strategy

Jingoism raises its ugly head as I was disappointed Hamilton didn't win and that the 'whinger' (Vettel) won instead - that said, at least it shows the prospect of possible competition for the rest of the season instead of just watching Hamilton/Rosberg battle it out between themselves.

I think the Malaysian track and conditions suited Ferrari and you can't fault their tactical decisions - however if Hamilton had also gone for a two-stop race he'd have been 15+ seconds AHEAD of the Ferrari.

Overall a good race - Buttons escapades are worth keeping an eye on - and the new kids on the block are showing real prospects for the future.

I don't believe that Hamilton could have made the tyres work with a 2 stop strategy...the Merc was chewing tyres compared to the Ferrari ......

Hamilton always seems to have problems making his tyres work for him, it's probably the fact his a bit more aggressive driving
