Ferrari won, predictably, with a 1-2 finish, but Trulli's performance was amazing. He fought the entire race and managed to finish in third after scrapping with Heikki Kovalainen up until the very end. In the press conference, you could see the two Ferrari drivers being very relaxed while Trulli was soaked in sweat. Jarno dedicated the podium to the late Ove Andersson who died in an accident in South Africa a week ago.

Massa managed to get first position due to Kimi's exhaust problem which meant he lost a lot of power from the engine. He said it was lucky he finished because the car almost stopped a few times.

Hamilton finished in tenth so he goes away with 0 points. He made some errors and was punished during the race with a drive-through. Kovy did well, though, after his penalty from quali yesterday. He did, however, have some nice overtaking maneuvers, especially the one against Alonso.

Kubica got fifth and managed to salvage an otherwise disappointing weekend. After him was Webber who did ok today.

Renault finally finished with both cars and both cars in the points. Alonso made a mistake while fighting with Webber in the end of the race and that allowed Piquet to overtake Alonso. 8th for Alonso is disappointing considering he started in third, but 7th is a nice result for Nelsinho who scores his first points this season. It also has to be mentioned that Piquet drove really well when fighting against other people, like Hammy. I think Piquet has redeemed himself with today's performance in the eyes of the team.

Button was the only one who didn't finish.

It was a surprisingly good race today due to the fighting among the drivers and the drama which stemmed from Räikkönen's exhaust issue.

On to Silverstone in 14 days!
