By that I mean, how he dedicated his 3rd place to Flavio!
But seriously, what a dull race. Ultimately a triumph of consistency - the three guys who had the most consistent weekends on the podium, all the other contenders proving to be no more than pretenders thanks to errors or problems of one kind or another.
BTW, although it made no ultimate difference due to Mark's brake failure, forcing him to let Glock and Alonso past early on was absolute rubbish IMHO. Can't see how it was any different to Raikkonen going wide at La Source on lap one at Spa. If anything, Raikkonen used it as a deliberate tactic; here Webber was given no room by Alonso (who himself ended up on the wrong side of the kerb) and was pushed out wide.
Plus the reason Webber got by on exit, it because Alonso was too busy dealing with his own oversteer problems. So it was really his own fault it happened, rather than Webber taking what was really a "long-cut".
