After the first corner, I didn't see the rest of the race. Was he booed?

There probably weren't many people there.

Hmmm. Could it be a cultural disconnect between the west and east in terms of the F1 experience?

Maybe. Although the stands seemed pretty empty

That would probably change if a Korean driver was in the field.

Yes. They don't care about F1 and they don't go to the races.

Glad to see the FIA solve the problem of Vettel running away with everything. Explode a tire and set a care on fire. Good show. But they waited too late. Should have done it inside the first ten laps. Lost their audience.

FIA needs to pass a new regulation. Adrian Newey is not allowed to work on the richest team in F1. It's just unfair.

Out of pity for Webber, Red Bull should give him another multi 21.

I have to say best use of a thermal camera goes to Red Bull car 2....
watching it burn on aft-facing thermal was pretty cool.

Bizarre seeing a fire SUV on the track before the safety car had gathered everyone up. Major snafu by the track and a dangerous one.
