  1. Compared to other races this year, it was good, but I found it very frustrating that in some corners, where an overtaking move could have materialized, it just wasn’t possible to do because of the dirty air the cars leave behind them. I can’t imagine how frustrated the drivers got as well… The Alonso-Hamilton battle was good and I enjoyed that.

    RedBull Racing also did a very good job with the car. I think it’s the new monster of the grid.

  2. Great drive by Vettel, absolutely mullered the competition.

    However when the only fights are for 16th place, you know its a dull race. 4/10.

    1. i agree, with a 5/10. sure, red bull dominated, and good for them, but i’d like to see some action for points-paying spots.

  3. How in the heck can anybody vote that race as “good”.

    It was from the 1990’s; a “precession”. They start and they go around. I thought the new rules changed something, but no–round and round they go :-(

    1. Yeah the rule changes have just made it worse. They should have banned the double decker diffusers. Now they just get dirty air again and it’s annoying

  4. I spent the day at Club Corner, from their the cars look awesome and the action at Vale was great!

    Hamilton put on a great show for us too, with some donuts for us on his in lap!

    Oh will you all please stop the moaning that was for me a Perfect race only because of the speed and character Vettel showed to pull away from the field its not like there wasn’t any squabbles going on.I mean yes i’d have prefered seeing cars closer together but you have to look past the lack of action and appreciate the skill those drivers were showing.

  6. Nice last 3 or 4 laps with Button closing on Rosberg. It was never gonna happen though. Bourdais probably sealed his fate today. Webber looked disappointed on the podium. How do you compete with Vettel right now? Button better win the WC this year, ’cause it looks like Vettel is gonna have a lock on it for the next few years.
    Also, nice to se a GP that has more people on a Friday than some of the others, (Turkey, Bahrain, Maylasia), have all weekend. The British know how to do a GP.

  7. I can’t believe all of these comments about a boring race. You guys need to find a new sport. I thought it was great. Sure, Vettel started from front and one. Most races are won from the front row though aren’t they? There was tons of action behind the top three. Massa had a great race back there and several other drivers did as well. Silverstone really is a great racing track.

  8. I voted boring. I even fell asleep at about quarter distance, to wake up for the final 20-odd laps.

    1. On second thought: that might have had to do more with me than the race.

  9. Pretty boring, the only real action was those cars and drivers who have been struggling all season.

    For me the race was good, very interesting to see how sensative the cars are now track conditions, excellent interview with Rob Smedley from the BBC Red Button F1 Forum. He explained how even a single degree of track temperature can bring the car to the driver, the details of tyre wear and explained the dynamics of the relationship between engineer and driver, very informative.
    I must say how impressive the BBC coverage has been, David Coulthard gives opinion from a drivers stand point as does Martin Brundell, Eddie Jordan give his view as an ex team principle. Jake Humphrey does an excellent job, however the weak link is Leggard, his innacurate, ill informed observations anoy me, but not as much as his stating the obvious, I actually shouted obscenities at his commentary this weekend, especially during quali.
    One last comment, well done Jake for getting the “looney” comment out of Mad Max, and getting Flavio identified as who Max see’s as the trouble maker. Great interview, I must say if that is how Max negotiates, by contradicting himself and adopting offensive terminology then it’s no wonder the sport is in such dissaray!!!!

  11. I enjoyed the Alonso vs Hamilton battle. Both of them in equally bad cars. Amazing to see how much Alonso’s rear slid out during cornering in comparison to the BMW’s.

  12. it was a long day for me as i left home at one in the morning and got home at ten. so i was a bit of a let down to see such a dull race. i was praying for a safety car or rain after 10 laps.
