Ayrton Senna would've celebrated his 52nd birthday on March 21, so it was good to see nephew Bruno finish 6th today, in car number 19, which was also his uncle's number during his debut season in 1984 in the Toleman TG184-2, which will be auctioned on May 16.
Yes, well the team would say that. This speaks differently:

Really exciting race and some suprising results at the end. Just a shame that Perez got the "Fernando is faster than you message" as he would have easily have overtaken the Ferrari otherwise. I think he deliberately went wide to give the other Ferrari powered car a bit of breathing room, even so fantastic result for Sauber.
Aw thats a bit sceptical.
It's not like he ran wide like a rookie just a minute or so after the team order

No, he waited about 2 minutes
I feel he should've gone for the win. What would he have had to lose? It may well have affected his chances of getting a drive with Ferrari, but he'd have a lot of interest from other teams if he can beat Alonso in a straight race. And if he still got a Ferrari drive, it'd have given Alonso a kick up the rear to get shifting. Who knows, he may even be able to walk into the team as number one.
And what would be the point in going to a big team and playing number two? History is littered with disgruntled drivers who have had to play second fiddle to number one. You join a team to race, not to stick to a script.

Great race again. Shame about Button but at least Vettel didn't score either
I honestly think Sauber we're afraid that Perez was going to stuff it into the gravel and do a 'Maldanado'.
Had Perez not veered off the track, he'd have easily taken Alonso on the main straight within a lap or two. The only way they'd have collided would have been if Alonso had taken him out, which there's no way he would've done that because he'd have been pleased just to beat the MacLarens.
Instead, he wimped out, and his first podium appearance could've been at the very top. He can also thank his team for making a mistake in keeping him out a lap too long on his old tyres.
I wouldn't use the word 'wimp' to describe any F1 driver.
I'm not implying any F1 driver is a wimp, I'm just saying he 'wimped out'
What an exciting race ... I even learnt a few more words in German courtesy of RTL ...
Like Box and Pole position.
And deadly for 12000 years is Carbon 14
you mean ... "Box" und "Pole Position"
... und "der schnellste" und "weltmeister der fahrer" ...

Are you suggesting that Perez deliberately "veered off the track"? If so, you might like to watch this footage (again).
And, after running wide and dropping 5secs, chasing Aloso to close the gap to 2.2secs at the flag can hardly be desribed as having "wimped out".
"Mistake"?? Perez started from 10th and finished 2nd, so you're quite correct - Sauber really do need to work on their race/tyre strategy
Another interesting grid for tomorrow, must admit I did have a little chuckle to myself when Seb was knocked out at the end of quali 2. Really pleased for Nico as well with a sensational lap, long overdue as I think he is a really good driver. Had to laugh when Schumi asked what Nico's lap time was and replied "not bad" after he found out how quick he was.
I thought Johnny Herbert did a really good job (SKY) and was alot more interesting than Damon Hill, I hope we see more of him in future races.
