I can't blame you if you didn't get up to watch it as it was on very early! But check out the BBC sports page, the highlights are on there. It was a fantastic race, and well worth a watch, good to see two British drivers finish on the podium, and amazing too see a team who looked dead and buried just a few months ago come back and take a 1-2 finish. Whatever next?

It was truly remarkable and an amazing coincidence that the 'outsiders' won the first and most important race...just when F1 needs support as many sponsors may back out (credit crunch and all that). This makes a very good news story which I'm sure will run and run.

More attempts by F1 to attract money, that's what..

I recorded it and watched it after breakfast. It was refreshing to watch the whole thing uninterrupted by inane advertisements trying to sell me stuff.
Welcome back, BBC!

Well done BBC nice to have decent coverage back.

Well done Sébastien Buemi not bad for a first race.

Shame about Kubica.

Do you ever remove your cynical hat?

From one paranoid cynic to another, I think that particular conspiracy theory stretches things a bit too far even for me.
The one thing the press coverage does that's just plain stupid is all this going on about how remarkably the "New" team has done. There's nothing new about them Brawn/Honda/B.A.R./Tyrell can track its F1 roots back to 1968. Revamped yes, reinvigorated by Ross Brawn undoubtedly, new ? Not even slightly.

A very enjoyable race and well done Hamilton for third place...

Conspiracy?! I love it.

It was a great race, and the Brawn cars are the result of several years of development, during which they limped along with a sub-standard car while devoting their attention to the 2009 model (as they hinted at two years ago).

Agree about the BBC coverage, nice to hear Brundle and Kravitz back in the saddle, and some new voices are welcome.

Gandalf... come on, pull the other one :)

FE... ey?

I've haven't seen any of the action yet due to circumstances, but I suspect that Lewis Hamilton popping up in third at the finish from 18th on the grid was the drive of the race?
