Great great race with great excitement and lots of overtaking. Red Bull confirms the overwhelming power, Vettel has won a race never questioned. Awakening of Ferrari, McLaren and Renault a step back. The Pirelli tires seem chenwingum will wear quickly and four pitstop in the race are many.

Another disappointment for Ferrari. Despite the good start and a good qulaifiche Fernando Alonso finishes the home Grand Prix and doubled in 5 th position. The first 18 laps of Ferrari were fantastic, could not even keep up with so much more effortlessly quoted Red Bull and McLaren. After the second stop using the hard tires, the Red has lost no longer stand the confrontation with opponents, highlighting once again the obvious difficulty of the machine that picks up only a little glory thanks to the tenacity of Asturian good pilot. As for Vettel, no doubt about it, pure talent at the helm of the F1 car in better shape. The German has won in Spain with a car without the use of KERS, and the gap Technical nonostantfe managed to hold off their opponents with great tenacity and that Hamilton, who urged him closely throughout the race. Finally, to report on 6 ^ place Shumacher that for once he gets behind his team mate and the first rookie World Championship points for the Mexican Perez.

Gp2 Spain second weekend for the European GP2 series, wins Pic and Leimer.
The long race on Saturday afternoon, saw the double of Barwa Addax Team, with Charles Pic, which has crossed the line ahead of his teammate, Giedo Van Der Garde. Behind them is placed Sam Bird, the third consecutive podium finish. Romain Grosjean had finished in 4th place but was disqualified for his car on a number of irregularities detected by the commissioners during the post-race inspections. The Frenchman has also remedied an additional penalty: in Game 2 will be forced to start from the back of the grid. Esteban Gutierrez penalty for that, because of contact with Michael Herck, lost ten places on the starting grid for Sunday. The Italians need to record a good 4th place for Davide Valsecchi, while Luca Filippi has retired in the first round. In the sprint race on Sunday morning was Fabio Leimer Rapax on to dominate. The Swiss, after the great comeback on Saturday (26 ° to 8 °), imposed a 10-second gap to Dani Clos, second, 20 seconds and Marcus Ericsson in the third. Romain Grosjean, who started last, was able to recover up to 9th position, but the Spanish weekend for him has been very negative. The French, in fact, lost the leadership of the league, and now is 4 °, trailing by eight points from the connection Van Der Garde - Bird who leads the standings with 21 points. Davide Valsecchi, 4 degrees below the checkered flag, he lost the podium by a whisker: Just two, in fact, the tenth who have separated from the third place Ericsson. Yet another recall, however, for Luca Filippi. The pilot of the Super Nova is off to a dismal 0 in the standings and if he wants to have any hope for the championship, must try to reverse this negative trend as early as next race in Monaco.

what in the world is wrong with hamilton? is he on steroids? canīt believe that he crashed in 2 cars again this week......
he should get a massive penalty for that
Had a bath come back and its still bloody raining.
The engines have started
Vettel screwed the lead on the last lap spun and button won
schumi almost got on the podium
but button is not 100% the winner yet.
the accident with alonso is goint to be reviewed! (and i think he should get a penalty because he ended alonsos race, donīt forget that)
That`s the first race ive watched in a couple of year just thought F1 was getting very boring,I have to say that was amazing to watch and has gone some way to restoring my faith in the sport lets hope its not taken away from button
you should watch more, almost every race this year had some exciting moments and monaco and cataluny for example were both great from the first to the last lap
btw, it seems like neither hamilton nor button got penalised
