  1. 8. I think the idea of taking drivers opinion in stewards decision has for the first time backfired. They should do away with this and let the drivers race rather than play games on the radio.

    I would give a 9 if they removed the RC from office. Like Brundle said the old school drivers would raced from start. They cannot see from the drizzle i have see it way worse and they raced anyway. Most of the drivers are whiners Alonso the biggest and for what he was just good in the rain. If i had know i would stay in bed for 2 hours more.

    For the race i rate it a 8 lots of actions overtakes (they should penalize Sauber of having 20 cars on the track) drama and the old men clearly rules (or have bigger balls) Liuzzi beating the Williams giving FI 1 point more then them Williams (which i thought they overtake FI very easy)

      Alonso? From what I saw, the biggest one was Vettel, who kept consistently saying EXACTLY the opposite of what Hamilton was saying on the radio.

        Alonso was whining in the beginning and Vettel at the end. But you Noticed both RBR and Ferrari wanted this race canceled so with 2 races left trying to make up or holding to their lead.

    Gave it a 7, would have been an 8 if Lewis won.

  4. WE went in thinking the big things would be tyre graining issues, no. of pit stops and overtaking in the first sector.

    None of that really played inot it much. As much as it looks like a big straight, a multiapex turn and a few squiggle generic tilke-a-track, it is actually creating some very good interesting. There seems to be no flow or anything, just randomness, a bump on the wya into the pits, on camber followed in the next by a lot of off camber. The 2nd and 3rd sectors being as far opposite the first as possible, and chuck in some oil.

    Maybe Ill get my knuckles rapped for not following the voting rules, but I had to deduct for the extended and excessive delays. A race without a standing start is also per se below standards. I was also looking for a great three-way battle that was shaping up in the laps just before Vettel’s engine blew.

    Anyway, does anyone think that Renault got tired of hearing RBR whinge about their engines and let their customer service, shall we say, falter a bit?

    A rather mediocre race. Can’t believe Alonso was purple in S3 twice while yellow flags were deployed and got away with it, but I guess that’s life.
    Will vote when I’m able to think a little more clear.

  7. Jared404 said on 24th October 2010, 10:34

    I think the race stewards did a great job of delivering a competitive race in very difficult circumstances.

  8. Willl said on 24th October 2010, 10:35

    When the racing was allowed to progress, it was an interesting race, but overall it was dominated by too many examples of politics. The prolonged use of the SC. Farcical radio dialogue.
    Disappointing result for RB.
    Shame Jenson didn’t turn up and race today.

  9. Rubbish Dave said on 24th October 2010, 10:36

    Start was completely farcical. Should’ve been green flagged many laps before it was.

    The crashes were typical for a wet race, but the lack of grip somewhat unusually didn’t do much for the actual racing. Partly as trying to overtake led to crashes.

    Button in equal measures incompetent and unlucky.

    Hamilton shouldn’t really have lost the place to Alonso as he did, but probably would’ve been unable to keep him behind. Would’ve been an interesting battle.

    Rosberg just plain unlucky. Given the setup changes Mercedes had made for the conditions during the Red flag period, he could’ve had a very good result, and it was a shame to lose him.

    Always good to see Vettels car disintegrate. Just so that I don’t have to put up with his smug finger. Shame Webber wasn’t there to pick up the pieces.

    So overall: Disappointing for a wet race, and a completely mismanaged start. 5.

    • That pretty much sums up my opinion, and my score. Possibly I subconciously subtracted a couple of points to compensate for the bruise on my hand, caused when Webber binned it.

    Best Tilke track since… Turkey, perhaps? Would have loved to see a dry race progressing to a wet track but hey, RedBull shoot themselves in the foot again. Watching Alonso pump in those laps in near pitch black conditions was just amazing.

    Leggard was awful agreed. But he’s pretty much the worst commentator alive. Wouldn’t mind seeing the 5Live guys with Martin commentating for TV viewers.

    3 hours in front of the telly for what felt like 20 minutes of action. My rating: 4

  12. Alexi (@alexi) said on 24th October 2010, 10:37

    10 because Alonso won and he’s leader now. And Interlagos is Ferrari’s strongest…

    Well, not really because of that, but a very entertaining race. I should have wake up a little later though. Congrats for Alonso, Schumacher and Liuzzi for their great races and a big facepalm for Sutil.

    It was a boring start… but at least the midfield battle was pretty fun with all the sliding around and then the overtakes for lost positions…

    To me, the start of the show had to be Alonso… Never made any mistake, suffered in the pits (a mistake not of his)…

    • and a surprise is Schmi! Is the race master is back? 4th?

      But Nico is pretty unlucky…. 1st Japan and now Korea… not his fault, just unlucky… Hamster’s bad luck got trasnferred?

    I have to rate the live blog comments because I didn’t watch the race. Verdict: pretty good.

    Great race, threatened to be processional and I wasn’t impressed with a lot of the drivers (was loving Hamilton’s enthusiasm, it was the only entertainment of the opening laps!) but there was a lot of drama and very significant for the championship. And to top it all off, a podium for Massa which cheered my sentimental self :)

    8/10
