    Yes the race was a bit dull. I was happy to see Kimi produce a very solid drive. And how about Rosberg! He’s been stringing together some very good finishes lately-very nice to see!

  2. Terrible: The same score as I gave the race at the Nurburgring but I wish I’d scored that race higher as this was much much more boring, probably the worst race I’ve seen since the Schumacher years which is ironic as if he had raced here it would have been more interesting!!

  3. I thought it was a good race. To me it seemed to be at the same point of most F1 Races. Little to no overtakeing. And the race was decided in the pits by a mistake. I am glad to see RB win after 5 year drought.

    I simply cannot believe that, at the time of writing, 195 people thought that the race was good

  5. I voted 3 for boring. This race was a snooze fest. I was asleep by about halfway through, after all it was 11pm where I live.

    The problem is the track in my opinion, it’s just not very good. It’s too wide to be a street circuit, but yet there is no passing, there is also too much run off for a street circuit. One of the main appeals, from a spectator point of view is that typically a street circuit is less forgiving.

    There is also no atmosphere, everytime the TV footage crossed to the people in the pool at the top of a building watching the race, they looked like they were about to fall asleep.

    Boring. I fell asleep during this race. First time I’ve ever done that.

  7. i went last year and the best bit was going to the beach after the race. you can’t do that at Silverstone!!!!

    rubens win was fantastic.

    if you pulled rubens performance out of the race, it was the most boring race ever. not a single overtake. can only hope it wont get its contract renewed.

  9. I have to admit for me that was one of the most boring races of the season. Were there any overtakes for position on the track after the first lap apart from people spinning or Button letting Webber through.

    It was nice to see Barrichello get his first win of the season though, and I think he would have won even if Hamilton had a perfect second stop.

    The worst news of the day was that Valencia has signed a deal to host the European Grand Prix for the next 5 years.

  10. it was like the past few years where nobody could pass anyone apart from in the pits. i did a lovely jigsaw during the second half.

  11. Did anyone overtakee anyone on the track ? Even a single overtaking move ?

    Valencia has to take the prize for the most boring current circuit.
