    Dull up until Vettel’s 2nd stop, then got a little interesting.

    Really gotta change the circuit they run the Spanish GP on. The problem is other than Motorland Aragon (Tilkedrome btw), the teams know Catalyuna, Valencia, and Jerez too well to produce an interesting race.

    Not very exciting, but no big loss, really. Helps catching your breath a bit before Monaco, the crown jewel of F1

  3. 2. Boring, Dull, Nothing happened. Bring on… well… any other race.

    I gave a 6. If you’re a real F1 fan then any race should hold some interest. The guys calling it terrible only want more crashes and incidents. Secretly they want to see people get hurt but they’ll never admit it.

      exactly. was interesting for much of the race.

    • No real F1 fans want more racing!

    • Yes… well done, that’s exactly it. Real F1 fans want to see one car follow another car for the majority of the race because the car aerodynamics, circuit design, and rules that punish anything remotly approaching eyebrow-raising allow for nothing other than a procession.

      It was boring and you know it. Although, you clearly sound like someone who gets turned on by pitstop strategy.

      I wish F1 would stop pretending to be chess.

    • Hallard said on 10th May 2010, 21:57

      I agree with you that for a true F1 fan the race holds some interest…

      But I gave it a 3. It was pretty boring. Nevertheless, even a ‘1’ race is better than no F1 race at all!

    A nightmare to watch, just like last year, and the year before…
    That Barcelona track is terrible for F1 racing (its good for testing only). There were some good moments, like Schumacher – Button chase, and Vettel lapping without breaks at the end, and the fans were great (because of Fernando :D) – but other than that … a horror (I hear Marlon Brando saying this line right now in my head :P ).
    The more laps the more drivers stuck behind other drivers; this circuit needs to be rebuild, or left behind forever.

    Come on, Barcelona has seen far worse races.

  7. steph said on 9th May 2010, 15:22

    7 some bits got boring but for Catalunya it was pretty good. had some nice battles and a few surprises. For a dry race at Cat it was pretty good even if it lulled in some parts.

    Very boring race. Hamilton splitting the Red Bulls was fun, shame he had a puncture, especially for the championship standings.

    At least we’ve now had 4 different GP winners in 5 races, which is pretty cool.

  9. Moutain Man said on 9th May 2010, 15:25

    Agree with above comments… Best dry race this season…
    Good drive by Lewis, but Was he so Cruely robed of 2nd…!!! He is realy at the top of his game
    The cars are being pushed too much…
    We need to get back to more pit stops. eg ditch refeuling ban etc & Incorperate more team input.

      Jut as you said, the cars were being pushed, there was some action on track (Lewis making the move to be in front of Vettel, Button chasing Schumi, Kobayashi chasing Petrov, Rosbergs move on the Hulk) some cliffhangers with Vettels brakes, pitstop mistakes by McLaren on both cars and Webber driving fabulously throughout the race and not even having to go all the way!

      A great race for Barcelona, and a solid race in the dry, so i give it a 7/10.

  10. PlushPile said on 9th May 2010, 15:26

    As a Webber fan 10, as a racing fan 5. So they can take 7.

    Nice to know where the teams sit, up the front anyway – damn that midfield is tough.

  11. Sri said on 9th May 2010, 15:28

    1. Button 70
    2. Alonso 67
    3. Vettel 60
    4. Webber 53
    5. Rosberg 50
    6. Massa 49
    7. Hamilton 49
    8. Kubica 44
    9. Schumacher 22
    10. Sutil 16

    Just saying… there’s like 21 points between the leader and the golden-ham (pun is intended)…

    Just so you know, as soon as i saw the tyres Hamilton started on (i hadn’t watched quali yesterday), i wagered with my brothers (who were looking for a tight finish) that Hamilton would drop off by the end of the race. Ironic huh? Even i didn’t see it coming as it did.

    • Mike said on 9th May 2010, 15:41

      Lol the left front really did drop off at the end didn’t it?

      • Sri said on 9th May 2010, 16:04

        :D … yes, it was quite amusing to read about it (thanks to the cable guy). Nevertheless, races are going to be pretty darn boring what with new rules favouring consistency… Rewarding consistency is not a bad thing in itself, but the downsides of trying hard are apparent and hence the reluctance of drivers to wing it…

  12. Franton said on 9th May 2010, 15:29

    Utter drivel. Webber romps off to an obvious win. Virtually no overtaking and the only real action was Button failing to get past Schumacher. Alonso and Vettel being gifted a lucky 2-3 on the podium due to Hamilton’s tyre failing. Dull dull dull … I’ve never slept better.

  13. Ben Curly said on 9th May 2010, 15:32

    People voting more than five must be out of their minds. It was really boring: 3/10

  14. Keith Collantine (@keithcollantine) said on 9th May 2010, 15:39

    Good to see some battles for position – Button and Schumacher for example. It had a few dramatic moments, quite a few of them coming as the leaders had to battle their way through traffic.

    Not a great race, but better than the last few Spanish Grands Prix.

    • Franton said on 9th May 2010, 17:31

      Must disagree on Button and Schuey … mainly because Button tried the same damn move every lap and wondered why he couldn’t get past.

      • wasiF1 said on 11th May 2010, 7:08

        Button should have moved faster than Schumacher & get inside of him, but he forced to go all the way round the outside by Schumacher.

  15. Merk said on 9th May 2010, 15:51

    4 = meh.

    The only action came when the significantly faster car was stuck behind a slower car.
    Button behind Schumacher
    Rosberg behind Hulkenburg

    The only exception was to that was Kobayashi behind petrov, but they didn’t even get side by side.

    Pole-sitter runs away with the win once again in Barcelona, is this the 7th year in a row now?

    • BasCB said on 9th May 2010, 16:31

      I think that is 10 years in a row and 16 of 18 races in total (not completely sure on the last one).
