What a disappointing end of the race. I guess fireworks are more important than what's happening on the track.

Great job by Alonso and Kimi.

once i watch qualifications, and sv has p1, all i can do is hope for a last lap-engine failure on his part to make things interesting.

and it happens to webber instead.

given the quality of the racing, there's not much incentive to watch practice or quals, since vettel on pole is going to be a romp.

If it wasn't for the safety car, Vettel could have lapped the field.
Now that would be interesting.

I gotta say the race prooved once again who the top guys are in terms of driving. Vettel could have lapped the whole field without SC and if he would've wanted to do so.

Alonso got an awesome start, then smart driving to get the maximum result that was available, again leaving Massa behind him despite loosing him in QP.

Kimi leap-froggin 10 positions during race while having back spasms, KERS issues and a car he didn't have time to setup properly due back pains in FPs. Kimi showed proper tire management when trailing Jenson. Even in dirty air he managed to keep them in shape while Jenson just flat out lost them driving in clean air.

I confess that I recorded the race because I couldn't watch it live. In the meantime, I learned of the results. And while I'm watching it right now, it's like a duty rather than enjoyment. I may skip to the end. Watching a Vettel runaway isn't much fun.

Vettel jeered again

Fair bit about on the F1 "news" websites re Vettel being booed on the Singapore podium.

Horner, Brundle, even Lauda have taken it upon themselves to defend him from the hecklers.

Vettel and his supporters insist on connecting the derision with Vettel's success on the track.

Doesn't seem to occur to them that other F1 winners have not attracted media coverage for having been booed consistently on the podium.

Not even Schumacher, IIRC. Whose winning streak was longer and duller.

Could the booing possibly be connected with Vettel himself, rather than merely with his win-loss ratio?

Edit: the latest defence, now from Coulthard.

Valentino Rossi has won a few races over the years. Even the odd consecutive championship. Can't remember his ever having attracted a roving band of detractors. Especially when he was winning. My perception is, Rossi attracted more criticism when he was losing (with Ducati). Why is that? Are fans of bike racing just that much fairer?

I think his beaming arrogance with his first finger raised after a win doesn't win him many friends. Couple that to his 4 year points dominance that kills the viewing pleasure with the multi21 fiasco and you have a few valid motivators for those that feel podium booing is appropriate.

Schumacher had 7years (from memory) so we may only have a few years more to go to be rid of him!

(PS was it really only just 7 years ago that MS was still in the groove??)

There have even been cases of international journalists booing.

http://www.sport24.co.za/Other/Schum...-side-20080904

"Schumacher was booed by the crowd on the victory stand. Then, as Schumacher and Barrichello were walking through the media room to the victory news conference, international journalists started booing. Schumacher was taken aback and put Barrichello in the centre seat reserved for the winner of the race."

Seb seems to confuse being the best with being an ass.

not a fan, but he did drive a blinder of a race....
shame riccardo's shunt didn't put the win in jeopardy.. that would have made for bad blood off the bat next year.
