    After the racing incident between Lewis and Vettel the race was boring. Thanks to the SC we got a bit action at the end of the race but no position changes in the front.

    one more time we see a manipulated race, again a british driver as a steward….it´s…mmm and obviusly, the big cheater/cryer/sucker….kubica crying on the radio to blame Alonso… Nigle, You are too old to be involved in F1 make yourself a favor and go to play golf…please, use charlie “big lier” whitting as a ball.. Well, i dont like the new Silverstone for F1 there is no place to overtake another car (It will be different in touring cars).

    8/10, lots of overtaking, not just from Vettel, Massa and Alonso, carnage with De La Rosa’s wing, a very difficult new layout too. Good result for English and British sport after the World Cup and Wimbledon. The twits who voted it as 1/10 must clearly be Ferrari fans ;)

    I assume there are 53 crazed Italians who will only enjoy a race when their driver does well. Those that say “British race”

    Ferrari fans, they’re all the same really..

    8/10 – What they should do is reverse the field every race. Fast guys at the back and the slow ones up front. That’ll get the blood flowing!

  6. In my opinion Silverstone isn’t much better than Bahrain. It’s all about history…

    • Manu said on 11th July 2010, 17:22

      I agree. Silverstone is nothing special. Spa, Montreal, Suzuka or even Monza are way better.

      • bad_whippet said on 11th July 2010, 18:51

        But all the drivers disagree with you, so it must be a good track – look how enthused Vettel was, talking about it pre and post race, not to mention Hamilton.

        Both Brundle and Coulthard also talked endlessly about the combination of corners and how excellent it is…

        I’m not trying to say you’re wrong, you did after all say, “in my opinion”, but it seems the drivers (old and new) thoroughly enjoy racing at Silverstone.

        • Patrickl said on 12th July 2010, 0:06

          Vettel was happy to be on pole. When he’s on pole he’s a happy camper and he loves everything. When he’s not on pole he complains about something that must have prevented him from being on pole.

          The British drivers seemed to be in Ultra PR mode. They just kept repeating how the fans were helping them go faster and such nonsense. It was all a bit too much.

          Still, even if Silverstone comes right after the few tracks that Manu mentions it’s still a pretty good track.

      It is no good entirely viewing it from a British point of view as the Internet is Worldwide..It is obvious by these comments,unpalatable as they may seem to all GB fans, that many watchers were disappointed..

      • Cube said on 12th July 2010, 0:51

        @almanac, That doesn’t make any sense.

        I don’t really care it the British drivers do well or not, since I don’t support them.

    silverstone sucks

    • Keith Collantine (@keithcollantine) said on 11th July 2010, 19:19

      Why?

      • Scalextric said on 11th July 2010, 20:51

        It’s clearly a great track for speed, viewing and tradition. The bumps were terrible this year and need to be improved. Is the spectator environment improved over years past when I went there? I expect so, but it used to be less than comfortable. Nice to see some overtaking on the new section and some real racing throughout the field and throughout the length of the race. This was not all due to the track, and some was possibly due to the bumps and resultant safety car but the track permits real racing, so thumbs up from me.

        • mikepaterson (@mikepaterson) said on 11th July 2010, 21:46

          Interestingly in discussions that I have seen/heard in recent weeks, the consensus is that bumps actually improve the racing by making the braking area more unstable and therefore opening it up for more overtaking.

          • Scalextric said on 11th July 2010, 22:10

            I think that’s right, but Sauber need to beef up their wings (again) it would seem. The latest version of Abbey, for example, was intended to be awesome, not tricky.

          • @ almanac

            Ok the bumps were bad but the new section did provided some good racing?

  9. F1Yankee said on 11th July 2010, 19:22

    i’m extremely pleased for webber and extremely dismayed for ferrari. i think the on-track action was kinda meh. mclaren are simply the best when it comes to spending money and that enabled them to salvage some results from disaster. williams and sauber classified better than they really are, but at very least it will cost bernie a bit more at the end of the year. 6 from me.

  10. Charles Carroll said on 11th July 2010, 20:51

    I gave it a 6. The first few laps were exciting and thankfully the safety car made it more interesting later on. Otherwise it was not as good as some of the other races this year.

    I was happy to see Kobayashi perform so well, as well as Rubens and Sutil. It was sad to see Kubica retire, but that is the way it goes. I’m not big into the Red Bull soap opera suffice to say that I personally was sad to see Vettel out so early, because the battle between Mark, Lewis and Sebastian would have been more entertaining.

    So, a 6. Looking forward to the next.

  11. ajokay (@ajokay) said on 11th July 2010, 21:26

    10, because it’s so much more awesome in person! 24 cars leaving the grid with their blown diffusers pointing straight at your face makes the most amazing noise in the world ever.

  12. I gave it a 7, and COTD to Webber for the ‘not bad for the second driver’ remark. I though Alonso’s penalty way too harsh. Yes he probably should have given the place back to Kubica straight away, but with Kubica retiring a lap or two later the whole incident became a bit of a moot point.

  13. Newnhamlea1 said on 11th July 2010, 22:19

    Had to give it a 10/10, twas my first ever live grand prix, the eruption in the chaple general admission area as vettel straightlined becketts made it so much sweeter.

  14. Matt G (lotus fan) said on 11th July 2010, 23:18

    7. Was a good race to watch, good job by Webber showing just how much pace the red bull had. Lewis also showing that he was the only driver able to keep pace with the red bull today. Another podium for Rosberg finnishing well infront of Schumacher. Best result possibe for Button getting 4th from 14th. A great result from Rubens and Kob High places for Williams and Sauber respectivly. Also it’s the first double car finish for Lotus of the season so that made me happy.

    Lastly it was unfortunate what happened to Alonso but it could have been avoided by giving the place back to Kubica straight away, though the slow responce by the stewerds didn’t help.

    • Mike said on 12th July 2010, 23:47

      Hamilton, for all his problems, has shown repeatedly, that when there’s the faster car to hang on to, he’s the guy who can do it.

    7/10 Exciting start gave way to a few battles here and there until the Safety Car,
