Default Australian GP! Very exciting race! Loved watching Button go against Massa!

What a great race...I mean, sure the lead was Vettel's from the start, but the race had a done of nice moves and overtaking.

Although Buttons screwed up, I loved the back and forth dicing. Vitaly Petrov really seemed super-happy about his placement, he was like a kid at the candy store.

I'm really disappointed with Mercedes...just a shame what happened, and what's up with Barichello? He pulled off a MSC move!!!! He must really want it this year...he probably knows he's getting older.

All-in-all, a very exciting start to the season. Can't wait till the next one!

Massa had a really hard time during qualification...he did okay...but man, he's gotta step it up. He seems unconfident.

I dunno...it's obvious Ferrari has pegged Alonso as the #1 guy...I mean, Massa let him go right by him when he came up on him and Button. I was disappointed in that.

it was an exciting race for the midpack guys, not so much for the front...
and not sure about the massa vs button incident, that might have been too harsh a penalty for button.

Well, from what I saw, Button really didn't have anywhere to go, but he should have given it back immediately. The rules are pretty clear on that. If he would have given it back, he could have pulled a Hamilton and stayed on his back bumper just for a moment and then used the acceleration difference to get in front. I think he was worried about Alonso more than anything else.

Alonso was too close at that point, he probably would have either lots two positions, or created an off for someone...
btw, anyone in the big island, Button will be there for the triathalon.

Still, it really cost him to not give the position back. I can see why he argued the point...but man...unless you're way out in the lead, a drive through will kill you.
