Bruno was the star of the show for me. If he hadn't been hit - who knows.

The moment of the race was Senna overtaking Schumacher.

Great news regarding tyre wear for China. The FW34 is speculated to take care of the tyres as well as any other car in the field and that advantage should be magnified by the track characteristics.

Bring on a dry weekend!

Yeah, to be fair, that was a ballsy move from Senna- no doubt inspired by Ricciardo's move on him earlier in the race.

Btw, when was the last fully dry Chinese GP? I asked siri and it crashed on me sad smiley

Wasn't it dry last year? Otherwise the last time it was fully dry was 2008 and that was an awful race in every way shape or form.

Hamilton dominated, so there was no excitement as to who would win.

Rไikk๖nen let Massa through for 2nd in a blatant showing of team orders.

Williams struggled massively and finished 12th and 15th from 17th and 14th on the grid. Rosberg got a light strategy based on overtaking on the long straight, but the Toyota engine ensured it blew up in his face and Nakajima was actually our best finisher on a more conventional 1-stopper, which was guaranteed not to put him in the points since almost everyone ahead of him did the same.

The only worry is he mentions a lot of bodywork to fix, so will that reduce available manufacturing time for new items? I suspect not as I can't imagine they are changing large items like the engine cover.

Yep, that's worrying. So far I recall 3 broken front wings, broken floors, broken engine covers and broken rear wings endplates. So that's a lot of parts to make spares for.

Still with the 4 autoclaves (or even more) that Williams has, producing spares wouldnt be that much of a challenge.
On the NatGeo docu on Williams F1 there was a team member shown who putted parts in an autoclave named nr. 1, moments later he was getting finished parts out of an autoclave called nr. 4.
