Number of Laps: 61 Circuit Length: 5.067 km Race Distance: 309.087 km and the lap record still to be made today!

First night race… over 1600 lights used to light up the track…

Lap 1; Massa leads… Hamilton right after him followed by Räikkönen! Vettel and Glock pass Kovalainen…Alonso made it to P12.

Lap 2; Hamilton set the fastest lap and a reply shows the between Kubica and Kovalainen that caused the fin to lose 2 positions…

Lap 4; Massa takes the fastest lap from Hamilton…

Lap 6; new fastest lap for Massa… Räikkönen is over 8sec behind so that’s almost 6sec behind Hamilton! 😦 … and yellow flag showing… something on the track that I can’t still understand what… looks like a piece of a front wing…

Lap 7; Rosberg takes over Trulli after a long fight…

Lap 8; seems Massa took the piece from the track and has it under his car… hope it won’t make big damage!

Lap 9; Alonso takes over Trulli as well… Räikkönen now with the fastest lap and about 4sec from Hamilton!

Lap 10; Räikkönen seem to be catching up well… he sets even another fastest lap and he is closing up to Hamilton! 🙂

Lap 11; and another fastest lap for the fin!!! My ice man is flying!!! 🙂

Lap 13; Alonso in pit (super soft tyre and 9.8sec)… and Räikkönen is closer to Hamilton… and Massa takes the fastest lap.

Lap 15; Rosberg pushing and flying in his sectors… new fastest lap for Räikkönen… Barichello pits… and an accident by Piquet… and safety car is out… and a reply for piquet’s accident coming out of turn 17… he was unhurt and safely out of his car!

Lap 16; Rosberg pits… and seems he will be penalized as what it seems the pit line not open…

Lap 17; Kubica pits… and surly will get a penalty for it!

Lap 18; pit line open… Ferrari pits… Massa… what a disaster… it was horrible… he left on his green light but it wasn’t ready… he ended up pulling the gas hose and break it with him, and one mechanics might be hurt… Räikkönen pits and get out while Massa still waiting for the mechanics to take off the hose that was stuck…

Lap 19; Rosberg leads but he seems to have a penalty waiting for him… and what seems safety car is going in, in the end of the lap… and Rosberg’s stop might have been ok!

Lap 20; Massa is last after the pit disaster…

Lap 21; Massa is under investigation…

Lap 23; Rosberg still leads and pulling away in the front… Räikkönen P15…

Lap 24; Massa gets a drive through penalty because coming out in front of Sutil in the pit…

Lap 25; Rosberg and Kubica both were found to have to serve a 10sec stop penalty for pitting when the pit lain was still closed!

Lap 26; the control telling Rosberg to stay out and keep pushing till they call him in for the penalty… seems also that is good news for Alonso who is running in P5.

Lap 28; Kubica get in the pit for his penalty… and he rejoins the race in last position.

Lap 29; Rosberg pits for his penalty too… and rejoins in P4…

Lap 30; Trulli leads… Alonso in P2… Fisichella get to make his first and what seems his only pit stop with 13.1sec stop meaning a lot of fuel… and Webber is out of the race!

Lap 32; Massa pits (super-softs and 7.3sec stop)

Lap 33; Trulli pits from lead (super- softs for him too in 9.9sec stop)…

Lap 34; Kubica pits…

Lap 35; Massa passes Bourdais… Kovalainen pits from P11. And Alonso is pulling away from Rosberg…

Lap 37; Hamilton stuck behind Coulthard in P4.

Lap 38; Räikkönen starts going after point for the Ferrari…

Lap 40; Alonso still leads… Sutil makes his second stop…

Lap 41 Rosberg pits (soft tyre and 8.7sec stop)… and Renault getting ready for a stop. Alonso pits from lead (stays on harder tyres and 7.6 sec stop) and he rejoins in the lead…

Lap 42; Hamilton tries to pass Coulthard… Hamilton pits from P2 (swaps to softer tyres in a 7.7 stop)… Coulthard is in too but he tries to get more fuel… Hamilton rejoins in P7 and Coulthard rejoins in P9.

Lap 44; Vettel and Heidfeld both make their second stop. And a replay shows Kubica passing Fisichella for P13.

Lap 47; Glock pits…

Lap 48 Glock drops to P5 after the stop… and we hear Coulthard telling his team that he’s having problems with the breaks…

Lap 50; Räikkönen is doing so well behind Rosberg, but I’m sure he has to stop again!

Lap 51; Trulli going slow seems heading to the pit… Räikkönen does pit (6.6sec and harder tyres) to rejoin in P5… Sutil hits the barriers at turn 18… safety cars out again…

Lap 52; Trulli pits and seems to retire… and reply for Sutil’s accident… and Trulli is out of his car and the race!

Lap 53; safety car is in, in this lap…

Lap 54; racing continues… Alonso leading, Rosberg in second, Hamilton P3, Glock P4 and Räikkönen P5…

Lap 55; Hamilton pressuring on Rosberg…

Lap 56; seems Alonso got this race…

Lap 57; I hope Räikkönen passes Glock… but will need to wait and see!

Lap 58; But instead in the turn 10 of this lap he runs to the wall and breaks his right side of the car totally… he is out once again! 😦 This now seems to give the chance for Williams to be the only team with both cars in the top 8!!!

Last lap; Alonso’s victory this year… ok it’s his very first podium this year too… Rosberg (1/2 Finnish 🙂 ) in second… and Hamilton in P3! Glock in P4…
