    mate to be honest it was a fairly boring race even if Massa had won.

  2. GindyWhale said on 25th July 2010, 22:44

    This is the only sport where people would dare to defend race-fixing – I am appalled and think Ferrarri should be disqualified and banned for the rest of the season. I feel sorry for Massa, but he is as guilty as the others for condoning the fraud.

  3. ScarletF1 said on 25th July 2010, 22:49

    It was more manipulated than a magazine cover. It was a team decision. “Fernando Alonso is faster than you. Can you confirm you understand?” And then saying sorry to Massa was the icing on the cake. This was in no way drivers’ decision, Felipe would not have merely handed his win over to Alonso. The way his body language was towards everything and everyone, especially to Alonso, told us how he felt about it. This very same day last year he had his accident, and this win could have been the motivation Massa needed. Ferrari took that for someone who would still complain if he was the only one left on the track!

    I agree with everything Eddie Jordan said on the case. It was unlawful and wrong.

    Finally a race that wasn’t decided by some stupid safety car which always favoured the same teams. Therefore I give it a 7/10.

    I understand you Britons like safety cars and lotteries, looking at the ratings, but this was all about real pace.

    • Subaru_STi said on 26th July 2010, 15:53

      yeah real pace . . until you can’t get past the slower car in front (a mix of too much downforce in these modern f1 cars and poor circuit design) this creates a boring stalemate where nobody can pass anyone, the best they can hope for is staying 0.5 sec behind them and even then you just destroy your tyres in the dirty air. . . its like all the lower formulas are real racing and F1 is just a computer technology race where the driver is doing nothing anymore. . the cars have to be stripped of their downforce to throw us back to the real racing at the older circuits.

    What a disgusting race. It reminded me of the early 2000’s with little to no passing, and Ferrari manipluating the race result. Worst race of the season.

  6. Alerio said on 26th July 2010, 2:36

    I voted 1.. this a bit boring race and even ridiculous with the ferrari team order.
    I think Alonso should say “the race is fixed” as like he said in Valencia.
    even if Alonso is faster than Massa, why he should give him the place? Racing is about defending your position to other driver and try to drive as fast as you can.
    This Team Order is making Ferrari looks so stupid.

  7. Brian Baum said on 26th July 2010, 3:52

    Face it, Brits… You would have rated the race a “very boring 1″ even if Massa had finished ahead of Alonso in an “honest” Ferrari 1-2. Especially with the red cars untouchable this weekend and McLaren having to use a calendar to time their cars.

      As great as it is that this site is so popular, posts like this are a prime example if the drawbacks to popularity…

      • Brian Baum said on 26th July 2010, 14:47

        I just made the valid point that no matter what Ferrari does, the British media and website posters such as yourself will find a way to make it into a negative. On the other hand, to these same sources it seems that McLaren can do no wrong… even when they clearly do on track. As an American, UK websites are just about the only source for F1 news and F1Fanatic is one of the best.

  8. Kovy said on 26th July 2010, 5:40

    It was about a 5 or 6, until the cheating. As soon as they swapped places I just felt all interest in the “race” leave me.

    Don’t understand anybody saying Alonso should get a penalty, at the end of the day, he didn’t actually do anything too bad (apart from whining.)

  9. wasiF1 (@wasif1) said on 26th July 2010, 6:03

    I rated this race 5 just for the on track action but in reality this race doesn’t deserve any points at all, Keith if you can please add 0 which will mean worst case scenario.

  10. David said on 26th July 2010, 6:11

    The huge number of ‘1s’ voted shows why people are generally unreliable. There have been hundreds of races over the years worse than this one in terms of action, overtaking, drama (which there was plenty of), and yet so many give very low numbers to the race simply because of one moment in it.

    And it also shows that people are generally stupid as well.

    • David said on 26th July 2010, 6:14

      oops, I voted 8 by mistake, meant to put 7.

      Thought there was an awesome start and first few laps, decent overtaking/fighting throughout, and a memorable moment towards the end (which I was pretty unhappy about but that’s irrelevant).

      So obviously a 1.

      • Subaru_STi said on 26th July 2010, 16:02

        are you sure you where not watching different race? “Overtaking/fighting throughout” if you ask the drivers i doubt that staring at the back of anothers cars rear wing for 2 hours counts as overtaking and fighting.

  11. andy k said on 26th July 2010, 7:05

    f1 is rubbish now,drivers bitching,teams bitching, no overtaking,bring back the 70s fast,dangerous,that was enterainment not now follow the leader 0/10

  12. MacLeod said on 26th July 2010, 8:34

    I rated the race as a 4 some racing in the beginning but after the pitstops boring as hell. And i am not amused by the teamorder Massa had to obey really sad.

    There were small skirmers but they were all way back in the field but almost no cover with images.

  13. The race was pretty dire anyway and then Ferrari went and made it even worse, wasn’t paying much attention after the switch, mainly cursing at the tv.

  14. Martin Hathaway said on 26th July 2010, 9:54

    The race wasn’t that bad, but Ferrari insulted our intelligence. Massa got the drop on Vettel and Alonso and should have been allowed to win, especially just a year after his accident ~ this would have been a popular move for everyone rather than serving a self-seeking prima donna! Ferrari not only blatently used team orders, they have also lied about it and that is serious. We all know what happened to Hamilton & McLaren at “Liegate”. Ferrari should be hit where it really hurts, not with a comparatively small fine but with points in the Championship.

    • wout brinke said on 26th July 2010, 15:02

      Good call on fining them on points. I think they should just DQ Alonso and hand a deserved victory to Massa.

  15. PJA said on 26th July 2010, 13:25

    For me the race lost some marks because of Massa being denied the win.

  16. wout brinke said on 26th July 2010, 14:59

    The only positive in the Ferrari race is that it means that i correctly predicted the winner in the predictions championship. Other than that terrible race: 1. Best part of the race was the start. Please go back to the old Hockenheim Ring.

  17. Subaru_STi said on 26th July 2010, 15:43

    Awful, just awful . . not because massa being denied the win but becuase it was clear that this track is worse than crap, Hockenheim has gone from white knuckle 200mph hardcore thrills and spills into another Bahrain type circuit, please dont tell me Tilke designed it. Melbourne and Interlagos for example i dont remember one bad race at any of these older tracks, i really hope we dont lose the few older tracks we have.

  18. Kevin said on 26th July 2010, 18:00

    I watched the race on BBC iplayer, it was boring as hell, plus the team orders just made it worse. Resurface the old hockenheim or just stick with the nurburgring on its own

  19. F1 is constantly losing my respect as a racing sport. I am not sure if it is strictly about the money but FERRARI has finally lost all of my admiration that I have had for them for the last 50 plus years. (70 years old this month) I have been annoyed about a lot of issues involving FERRARI, extra money under the table, BRIDGESTONE tires / tyres testing with FERRARI to Michael’s benefit, crying foul ever time another team has an innovative idea, etc. ad nausea……… Go Massa!! And Fernando really should be embarrassed, what a cry baby. Yes, I voted a 1.

  20. rob bryant said on 26th July 2010, 19:04

    millions of fans from all over the world were cheated out of eighteen race laps yesterday. Totally disgusting team orders meant massa who probably would have held on for the win also lost out. Again shades of Austria 2002, a cost effective way of gaining, sorry STEALING valuable points
    A $100000 fine is a joke to Ferrari, they need to be black flagged to send out a message that this, Formula one, one of the last great and glamorous sports will not tolerate cheating on any level. if they leave it as just a fine, it will happen again and again.you will have a lot of disenchanted fans who after all are the reason by way of their support that these teams and drivers are to fund their life styles.
