Quite satisfied as our prediction in P1Mag issue no.06 proved to be 90% right, especially as to the reliability issues at Red Bull Racing.
The 10% that didn’t quite fit:
Ferrari, foreseen as equal to McLaren, was ahead of the British outfit this time, probably will be at the front in Melbourne, too. From then on we’ll have tracks that suit the MP4/25. Congrats to Fernando Alonso, beating Massa on a track he clearly dislikes is a clear indication of the running order at the Scuderia for the rest of the season.
Mercedes not there yet, and clearly behind Red Bull. Vettel keeping Rosberg behind him despite a broken exhaust is a clear statement.
Big disappointment: Sauber clearly hasn’t delivered, they should have a better package than Williams and left us unimpressed. Not much else to say.
Lotus fared best among the new teams bringing both their cars to the chequered flag. Plus entertaining fights by Trulli und Kovalainen with oponents were the highlight of the race. Thumbs up.
