    Highlights of the race for me: gorilla trophies and Kimi clearly sleeping on the podium through the anthems.

    What's the gorilla trophies about? Saw a couple of huge gorilla statues about, thought it was Donkey Kong at first

    Why did Ferrari have Kimi complete 30+ laps on the ultrasofts? Were they going for the win expecting rain? or planning to have him finish behind Vettel?

    Only thing I could figure is that they wanted Kimi to try to hold up Lewis after his pit stop. That seems a bit of a stretch though. Ferrari strategists have been confusing me lately. Sometimes I think they try to be too creative.

    At the time there was the possibility of rain coming so it would have saved them a stop and given him a chance for the win. As it was he had fresher tyres and passed Riccardo so the strategy worked well for them

    I don't know the details of his strategy, but yeah, a podium shouldn't be that bad... with that said, Ricciardo had some car issue, broken front wing elements... so maybe kimis podium was due to luck.

    I wonder if they had setup Alonso's car for rain. He sounded utterly annoyed around the time rain was called off and then was in a much better mood afterwards.

    So that Max guy finished another race. 3 podiums in 4 races. Look mom, I stayed out of trouble and finished on the podium!

    Turning it around a bit...even the hardcore haters can at least acknowledge the slight improvement?
