Yeah Palmer probably wouldn't have caught Alonso. But I'm pretty sure he made a pit stop at a different time to those ahead so he was closing in on the guys ahead of him (Kyvat, Alonso) and got it down to about 3.6 seconds, this is while Alonso was letting Vettel through then he suddenly slowed about when Kyvat was passing him. Which put him second to last with only Palmer behind. Not sure if Kyvat made the pass because of Alonso's issues or it happened just after. Nice to see them following the guys at the back in the race though instead of just looking at the leader, because they had some fun tussles.

Seems as though if a Ferrari wins, that's the driver of the day.
By contest, I mean the overall contest between Hamilton and Vettel and more often than not, when there is a contest like this, it tends to overshadow what ever else is going on. Also the TV coverage doesn't help. There have been many great battles and drives, further down the field, which can get very little coverage or can be completely ignored, as the TV director has tended to focus on the championship contenders at the front of the field.

Agreed. Perez for me.

Max, because he was doing a brilliant job and was just behind the Mercs, when he went for a clever early pitstop, before he went out through no fault of his own

Has to be Ferdy, for even bothering to keep going, and for being so commendably restrained in his remarks on the radio about Honda's boat anchor – sorry, engine.

Grosjean. Another points finish in the Haas and it was his birthday over the weekend

Honourable mentions for Vettel, Perez, Hulkenberg, Massa, Alonso and Raikkonen (the last 2 purely for radio entertainment).

Others were faster but most of the coverage seemed to be focusing on Alonso as those scraps were more entertaining so gave him my vote this time

I voted for the guy who has the longest current run of consecutive points finishes.
(hint1: 13)
(hint2: he doesn't drive a Mercedes, Red Bull or Ferrari)
