This was a fun race with a lot of good racing and overtaking. Kovy had a puncture in the first turn as he got a bad start from second on the grid and Kimi Räikkönen and he touched in the first corner.

Massa won, but it was not an easy race for the Brazilian with Hamilton pushing him and overtaking him on the 24th lap. Hamilton's race was kind of compromised with a three-stop strategy apparently "imposed" by Bridgestone due to fears of failure of the Bridgestone Potenzas in conjunction with the McLarens.

Kimi got third and couldn't really contest Hamilton's second place. Kubica got fourth and did well, and Heidfeld redeemed himself by gaining 4 positions from his place on the grid and finishing fifth. Alonso got sixth and said after the race that this was the the best possible position he could have gained. If not for Kovalainen's problems, he would have finished seventh. Anyway, points for Alonso is good and I hope they improve further so they can contend with the top teams.

Mark Webber's Red Bull finished seventh and Nico Rosberg finished eight in his Williams.

In 2 weeks we have the showcase of Formula 1, the Monaco Grand Prix. This track should highlight the loss of traction control and I am looking forward to it. It is the most glamourous event in Formula 1 and even if it's the slowest race of the year, the cramped conditions of the streets of Monte Carlo always make for exhilarating moments when the cars almost touch the walls.
