2012 United States Grand Prix - Formula 1™  Results
Lewis Hamilton, McLaren, 1st Place in 2012 United States Grand Prix - Formula 1™
In his penultimate drive before his wilderness years Lewis showed just how exciting the championship might have been if McLaren could have kept their car from breaking down all year. It might have been a three-way fight going to Interlagos had the MP4-27 not believed it was a TVR. Lewis was on it all the way from lights to flag and got the one bit of luck he needed with the intervention of an HRT on Lap 42.

Sebastian Vettel, 2nd Place in 2012 United States Grand Prix - Formula 1™
Narain has never forgiven Seb for calling him "stupid" earlier in the year and today it was payback time.
But seriously, Vettel shouldn't look at the lost win as seven points lost, more like 18 points gained. Because it could have been his Red Bull that slowed and stopped on lap 17 not Mark's. On his slowing down lap he radioed back, "we should be very happy" in the kind of heavy tone that was so deadbeat it made Winnie The Pooh's Eyore sound like some evangelist Christian missionary who'd swallowed a whole tube of Barocca.

Fernando Alonso, Ferrari, 3rd Place in 2012 United States Grand Prix - Formula 1™
Alonso was slower than Massa for only the second time this season. He was fortunate that Mark Webber failed to finish and that Jenson Button qualified where he did. As we head towards Brazil the long-range weather forecast for Sao Paulo for next Saturday and Sunday is thunderstorms on both days.

Felipe Massa, Ferrari, 4th Place in 2012 United States Grand Prix - Formula 1™
Massa's best race of the season and next week we'll be at the place where he's always a contender. Asking him to take a five place grid penalty next weekend might be a bit more tricky to explain to the local fans.

Jenson Button, McLaren, 5th Place in 2012 United States Grand Prix - Formula 1™
Jenson had a "fun" race. What was interesting was that he was keen to get it on team radio that: "I'm wasting a lot of time not being able to use all the KERS". That sounded less like a message to his engineers, who would have known precisely what he was losing and where, and more like a broadcast to tell people why he couldn't catch Massa.
Button proved that you can have non-DRS overtaking into Turn 16 as well as Turns 1 and 12.

Kimi Raikkonen, Lotus, 6th Place in 2012 United States Grand Prix - Formula 1™
Kimi was probably disappointed that the team had Matt Le Blanc as a guest of the Lotus team when he would have preferred Jennifer Aniston. When Kimi radioed in wanting to know if Daniel Ricciardo had to stop you wanted his engineer to radio back, "Leave me alone!"

Romain Grosjean, Lotus, 7th Place in 2012 United States Grand Prix - Formula 1™
Didn't crash but tried to.

Nico Hulkenberg, Force India, 8th Place in 2012 United States Grand Prix - Formula 1™
Another mature drive from Hulkenberg who resisted late surges from both Williams drivers.

Pastor Maldonado, Williams, 9th Place in 2012 United States Grand Prix - Formula 1™
He was robust but not stupid and as a result he's now putting in consistent points finishes. How long is it since we've had an entire race with everyone finishing with the aerodynamic parts they started with? Perhaps it's something to do with that pure, bright Texan light - no misty smog like Korea or India.

Pirelli The Pirelli Stetsons were a great idea for the podium ceremony and surely something that F1 should expand on. We should have Pirelli national hats for most grands prix. In Canada Pirelli Mounties' hats, in Britain Pirelli bowler hats, in Belgium Pirelli berets, in Australia Pirelli bushranger hats with corks and in India Pirelli turbans.

Circuit of the Americas
There's a saying in Texas. "I wasn't born here, but I got here as fast as I could." That could be said of the US GP. This is the first proper U.S. race since Watkins Glen and at last a worthy home for the event. It's a great credit to the organisers who hauled the race back from the brink when it looked like falling through. And because it's in America, there's every chance that it will become an ongoing success, not just a political vanity project for national or regional politicians, as it has been in other countries. The fact that it was a near sell-out should give hope to any waverers in New Jersey.
