    I voted 1 :/ Then looked at the results to see 727 agreed with me, it was good up to that point, i was looking forward to the prospects of a 3 way lead battle towards the end, but, the result has left F1 tainted for now… Depends what the World Motor Sport Council do next…

    A little off topic, but did anybody else notice how much of a fail bridgestone’s tire idea was. so much for hoping for another canada =\

    Ferrari is a company, their job is to win both the constructors and driver’s championships. The drivers are employees, their job is to do as they are told. If Red Bull was Ok with giving Vettel a newer wing (a decision that had direct influence on car performance), then why is this a big deal with Ferrari? The rule that there will be no team orders is dumb — the engineers can adjust certain engine characteristics from the pit — the rule can’t be enforced — all it would take is to turn down Massa’s revs…or give him older components…or ask him to save fuel during a certain part of the race. The end result is the same. Grow up. The whole sport is manipulated because it is a business — there are millions being made and lost — so the rules, technology, drama, is all invented to continue making the wild amounts of money…so enjoy the technology and the show, but don’t be naive about it.

      I’m don’t PAY to watch ‘business’, I’m paying to watch sport, which this wasn’t, the guy who can make it to the finish first wins, hey perhaps we should have just called it a day after quali on Saturday after all, Fred ‘was fastest all weekend’ so obviously deserved to be manipulated to the win.

      Or am I misunderstanding the sport and the obvious interpretation that you actually need to perform the best over the full race distance.

      I/we have been cheated. You / Ferrari / Tifosi calling anyone naive is insulting. Go conduct you’re business elsewhere but do not expect me to come pay to see it or buy your merchandise.

      So how long will this sport survive with all of these business decisions getting in the way? And why don’t I hear these kind of complaints about any other sport that has teams and players?

    I don’t get it.. I think it was a great race to watch even though the alonso/masse incident was way out.. So wrong.. But looking away from that i think it was quiet a nice race.. I felt entertained.. It looks like it’s just me.. I really don’t get it.. It seems I’m the only who enjoy more than the action between number 1 and 2.. stupid

  5. Christopher Vissing said on 25th July 2010, 21:22

    But I think Alonso would’ve win anyway.. But this way is just wrong..

  6. Renell said on 25th July 2010, 22:25

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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.)

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

      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.
