The wet, wet weekend continued into the race, and made things fascinating when it came to tyre strategy. Hamilton could have pulled off a master stroke, but Vettel kept his head.

The Race

Starting behind the safety car could have been a bad omen, but thankfully it wasn't. It was all about grip, tyres, and who was brave in the lack of visibility. Overtaking was plentiful, most of it down to the one guy.

Conclusions

All decide it was a tough day, which, given the conditions, is hardly surprising. Alonso feels they surpassed their expectations, as does one half of Toro Rosso, but others, such as Williams could have done with a better day.
