It was wet and cold and for those of us camping, not a particularly pleasant experience. But what a race! Every single second of that Grand Prix made up for every drop of rain, and today's F1 Digest aims to cover all the action.

The Race

What a stunning mix of strategy problems, tyre issues, and overtaking maneouvres. I don't think I've ever seen quite so many spins in my life, and poor Massa's reputation is ruined once more.

Conclusions

Interestingly, many of the drivers out there seem to have had a bad day. Even race winner Hamilton says that it was one of the toughest races he's ever driven. Only Nakajima seemed to enjoy himself, but that's okay, because I know the crowd did even more.
