    Jean Alesi acted really like a populist agitator on the podium. Reduced Surtees role to that of a bystander.

    That whole podium ceremony was a very clear example of things that are wrong nowadays.in my opinion. Webber deliberately showing his back to Vettel while hugging Alonso. An ex-driver that wants to easily score kudos with the mass crowd by shouting some populist slogans. Fans were so hyped up because of it that they needed to boo the winner of a Grand Prix (not the first time this season).

    I am rooting for Alonso as a driver as I think the guy is one of the most skilled drivers in the paddock but yesterday, especially at the home grand prix of Ferrari he should have taking some responsibility and address the tifosi to treat his colleague with some more respect.

    If nobody acts this booing will only become worse at the next Grand Prix. Better put a solid interviewer on the podium for each race instead of drivers from the past or just spray the champagne, and do the interviews in an old fashioned way like they used to do.

    Was a very nice racing weekend again but overshadowed by the nonsense at the podium, at least for me. Leaves a very bad taste in my mouth.

    They are all jealous because he is so fast, F1 is so competetive as it was never before but people are just stupid. To me he is the best driver and every year he will be better until he reach certain age like Webber, Alonso and Raikkonen. Those guys think they can match him :). Let them booing, who cares, for sure not Vettel he is hardest to break right now.

    Vettel wins? Whoop de doo...

    Let him win 50 more times for all I care. At least Schumi's domination was more worthwhile than Vettel's.

    I also found that embarrassing to watch. Snatching the microphone off Surtees to race over and talk to Alonso. Even Alonso seemed uncomfortable.

    @Bram Hengeveld & @Warren Dawes

    Give the guy a break, guys, since Alesi's never been a professional interviewer, for as long as I know. And I'd like to see you up there doing the same, while thousands of F1 fans stand there in front of you...

    You'd be surprised :) Think me and Warren would be a good duo. They can give us a call.

    I could have interviewed Mark Webber in his native language. :D

    I found the interview between Alesi and Alonso to be rather cringeworthy, especially when Jean held up his microphone to Alonso's mouth, despite Alonso having his own and talking into it...

    Put SV in any other F1 car he would never win another race.
    Granted his skilled but 4x world champ skilled he is not.
    Adrian Newey wins again.
    F1 is becoming very boring because of Adrian Newesy car,
    That bloody car has so much extra rear grip compared to the rest of the teams im amazed they haven't won every race.
