The pitstops were agonising as well...10 seconds lost to the best is lousy.bearing in mind that the car was not slow ...they seem to get not much right at this time.

1) Over the full length of the race, Ham had KERS; Vettel only intermittently. Anyone hazard a guess (or firm answer baased on facts) as to how much total difference that would have made? I have to believe it would be on the order of more than a second. More than enough for Vettel to be well clear of Ham. Glad to be corrected by someone with facts.

3) When the trailing car (in any situation, not just Vettel-Ham) is able to use DRS, the trailing car is racing to a different set of aero rules than the car in front. Unprecedented.
