Wow - what a race!
From the start the Bridgestone teams looked to be in deep trouble. Alonso was lapping 1-2 seconds faster than anyone and had a huge lead. But as the track dried, they got better and better. Alonsos lead was never really challenged -- until he pitted for dry tires and the team correctly installed three wheel nuts. Unfortunately formula cars require four - he left the track - backwards, about a lap later.
Kimi made the news by driving over Liuzzi.
In the end Schumacher was in second trying to hold off PDR and Heidfeld and had contact with Heidfeld and broke something in the front end.
While looking up the spelling of Liuzzi I discovered that the rookie Kubica was DQ'd for weight giving MS a single point.
10 points between Alonso and MS with 5 races to go. This is gonna be great.
