Saw the GP but was fading in/out of sleep (a good way to pass life, incidentally, but that's for another thread).
Alonso was very quick and the Renault has come a very long way. I think McLaren and Ferrari have probably frozen development of their 08 chassis at this point, whereas Renault are continuing to improve the car it seems. This is great, as it'll make for a 4-way battle next year counting BMW.
Unfortunately for Alonso he may not have a good no. 2 on the team due mostly to his own preferences. This means that if he's a contender next year there may be nobody to help him out in the same manner he's vowed to help Massa.
BTW, if I were running a billion euro enterprise and my most costly employee were self-absorbed, Quixotic, and focused on aiding a competitor, I might have second thoughts about him/her -- but that's just me.
Kovalainen lacked a bit of pace this time round and it's a shame. Even though Hamilton managed the team must stress about it, plus they need the points vs. Ferrari for the manufacturer's title.
I'm going to re-watch the GP and try to stay awake during most of it this evening (but I'm up against it with some painting outside and the prep makes all the difference, so we'll see if I can sort that plus keep the eyelids up for Bernie's show).
