The Monday following the race before, but there's no time to relax as it's time to start thinking ahead to Bahrain. What will we see in terms of performance? Will there be any more diffusers present? Will KERS ever return to those who have dumped it? Meanwhile, there are still things to analyse from the race we have just witnessed:

  • There's a discussion in the comments over who is the better wet weather driver - Hamilton or Vettel. Journeyer has done a great race by race analysis, and it's time to weigh in your thoughts. Was Hamilton helped by the car? Did this race prove that a bad car plus rain don't mix? Is Vettel supreme or just lucky?
  • Ferrari are having to put their foot down and state that their championship isn't over yet. The party line is that it's only been three races and anything could change. However, they might need to tell Kimi that because he's already written the championship off. Who's closer to the truth? Could Ferrari make a resurgance despite such poor results?
  • As we mentioned in the live show yesterday (edited version coming soon), the Laureus Awards nominations have been announced and both Vettel and Hamilton are up for a prize. Thankfully not pitted against each other this time, the nominees can be viewed here, and it looks like Lewis has some stiff competition. The Olympics is still dominating sports awards again. Who do you think will win?

If there's anything following the race that you feel needs discussion, then please feel free to talk about that, or anything. The Daily post is open for your thoughts. I'll see you in the comments.
