Lewis Hamilton has finally won again, although it only happened with a little help from Red Bull. After Sebastian Vettel went out of the race, there was nothing that could stop Lewis. Alonso kept close but was no challenge, while Jenson Button finished in 3rd place.
That's a possible thought. A lot of it has been oversteer on entry, which is probably the biggest effect of not running the EBD mapping. (you won't get exit oversteer as you're on the power on exit anyways). I think another cause could just be that they were using too much entry kerb, and so they had less grip on the right-side tyres
We saw both RB and Ferrari struggling with snap oversteer, the rear end suddenly flipping around. It caused Webber to do a 180 on the straight while Alonso, Vettel and Massa managed to get to the end of the straight before the rear flipped on the braking zone for turn 1 and sent them off track.
Odd that both cars for both teams had very similar problems with rear stability for the same corner.
Glock also went off at turn 1, but that wasn't as dramatic, it was more of a sideways slide once he was halfway around the corner.
Very difficult to judge from practice I would've thought - it was possible the other guy was on light fuel and Button on heavy, or perhaps the other guy also had his DRS open, but yes, it's not looking good right now

Yep, but that doesn't help any if they set their gear ratios to be slower down the straights and quicker in the acceleration zones, given the sector times from P1/P2 that seems to be exactly what they've done.
