There is only one word to describe today’s race: CHAOS!!!
The first action was a jump start from Alonso. Seb had some problems with the clutch at start and got overtaken by Alonso and Webber. Later on the first lap, Liuzzi spun and crashed into Buemi and Kobayashi.
All drivers except De La Rosa started the race on slicks even if it started already before the start slightly to rain. But then came in lap 2 due to the Liuzzi crash the Safety Car out and a pitstop-marathon began. Almost everyone came in to change on inters. But some, as the race winner Button and the 3rd Nico Rosberg stayed on slicks, which seemed first very mad but at latest when the other drivers had to come in again to change back on dry tyres those who stayed on slicks where the big winners. Well the biggest looser of the first pitstop row was: Seb. RBR let him pit together with his teammate Macca but the last had a problem at his pitstop and so Seb had to wait and lost much time.
Another very interesting pitstop story was when Seb and Hamilton where fighting: Seb wos ahead and drove in the pitlane but ham came at the pitlane entry and cut Seb. Then Seb was again ahead of him in the pitlane but Hamilton attacked Seb in the pitlane. In my opinion Hamilton shud have got a penalty for unsafe release for this but the result of an investigation after the race is: a verbal warning for both…
And we saw this race a thing we never could see before: wheel to wheel duell between Seb and Schumi and guess who won??? Seb for sure!!
Well later the rain became heavier and everyone changed on inters. I don’t know how Lewis Hamilton managed to go on 3rd… and Alonso, who got a drivethrough due to his jump start, on 4th…
In fact this was an very interesting, thrilling and chaotic pitstop-race. After the first race at Bahrain everyone said that there were not enugh pitstops; if anyone says this after this race he absolutely lost it as the highest pitstop rate is 6 by Alguersuari and Hülkenberg.
At the end i want to explain you the title of this post: It’s raining stars. Well the raining is i hink quite easy to understand as the race was hit by rain xD. And the part with the stars: the 3 drivers on the podium are all powered by a Mercedes engine and as u all know the trademark of the german company is a star 😛
