Fwah! Ferrari crash and burn! William's cosworth and Ferrari engines not reliable. Wasted. McLaren's engine got a lot of potential. I think its the most powerful one on the grid. I watch Montoya's car, wow! Their weakness is tactics and strategy and some reliablity. Renault almost perfect man.
The race offically ends once all the point scoring positions are won. 1st-8th. So if there are backmarkers that are 2-3 laps down, they do not finish completing all the laps but are still classified. In Button's case, all the 1st nine positions are won before the race offically ends and the rest of the back markers are still a few laps down.
Yup, you are right, CoolFix.
For the benefit of those who did not see the race, Raikkonen flatspotted tyre caused bad vibrations to the extend of braking off a portion of his front nose wing, thus causing him to slow down while Alonso speeds away for the lead. Raikkonen's effort to catch up to Alonso was too little, too late after he came in to change his nose cone. (the pit stop where he changed his nose cone was also a SNAFU as Montoya was waiting behind Raikkonen's parked car, thus causing Montoya precious time - during a SC period)
