    I have mentioned this before in previous races, but it is absolutely amazing that yet again the top 5 drivers have finished in the top 5 positions again. Amazing season, it must be some sort of record for consistency among the top drivers.

  2. 5/10

    Once Red Bull hit the front it was fairly boring. Some good midfield battles but nothing special.

    Hopefully Abu Dhabi can provide us with a better race and that Mark Webber can do the business there.

    Alonso will be hard to beat though. It would take a brave man to bet against him.

    Was expecting alot from Kobayashi

  4. I gave it a 7. It was a solid race with some good action.
    It is amazing that so many gave a 1 rating after German Grand Prix for the team order yet today it seams that a lot of people lowered the score because of lack of a team order from RBR.
    I have a feeling that if Webber finished first today and HAM managed to get past ALO after the SC the race would be voted as the best grand prix of the year with average score of 9.5 :)

      Agree, funny thing that is with TO, isn’t it. I actually think it is great to see RBR not interferring, although it will probably mean Seb “being the team player” next time round.

  5. Congrats RBR and vettel.

    Something dramatic has to happen to F1. We cannot continue watching such formula bores. With refuelling also gone the Fans has to look up the sky towards rain gods or towards safety cars for any bit of racing.

    After watching Talledaga last weekend in NASCAR, F1 is putting up a pathetic show in comparison from both racing and entertainment perspective.

    Kudos for the Hulk for getting pole, but his effect on the race was negative as he let the top runners pop out one by one with big gaps in between, making the race ultimately predictable by about lap 5. Can’t blame him, of course; he was racing his own race (although tactically it damaged his chances long-term – he’d have been better letting them go and having a proper scrap with his speed peers). The SC could have helped matters but the way the back markers were arranged probably had the effect of spreading the top runners out rather than bunching them up. Disappointing race, but you can’t really blame any individual or rule.

    2/10
    the most boring race this year!
    and one unfair thing. Rosberg pits 3 times, Kubica only one. He could pit several times and still go ahead, because Pole was lapped.

      Get yourself a taped Bahrain or maybe Barcelona and think again.
      There was genuine tension in large parts of the race, we had quite a bit of battles and passes on track as well.
      A shame about the RBR getting past the Hulk that fast and the backmarkers getting in between an exiting phase after the SC period, but still a pretty decent dry weather race.

        I think it comes down to expectations and really I’m not surprised that so many people were disappointed after the qualifying we had. That’s what happens when you work up all kinds of fantastic scenarios in your mind and then boring old reality comes along and ruins everything.

    6/10 what a stupid and boring race it was i expected more today in Brazil

  9. Younger Hamilton said on 7th November 2010, 18:59

    Worst Grand Prix i’ve ever watched

    It really was a “meh” race. Apart from the large amount of overtaking, it was pretty dull. And I feel bad for Hulkenburg, 8th really wasn’t good enough.

  12. Icthyes (@icthyes) said on 7th November 2010, 19:51

    5/10 even the SC couldn’t spice things up, thanks to the ridiculous rescinding of the rule allowing backmarkers to unlap themselves.

  13. 7/10 from me. Good overtaking in the midfield, Massa for instance was fairly fun to watch fighting Buemi and Sutil (or was it liuzzi?). Though there could have been more action at the front. Red Bull just ran away with it and Hulkenberg held back Alsonso so much that he had no chance of catching the bulls and then did the same to Hamilton. Not that he was bad, Hulkenberg impressed me. He didn’t do any mistakes and he did a very good job defending against Alonso and Hamilton. Sadly he finished the race very low down.
    And the SC rules could be better, the back markers between the front runners ruined any chance of an entertaining restart.
    And just last, i don’t get why people mock about RBR not using TO? We all hated it in Hockenheim, why should it be different this time? Also, in Hockenheim we all knew that Alonso were better then Massa, and that the only Alonso would have a chance to get the WDC. Here Vettel were faster then Webber and have been that consistently for a long time now. They both have a shot at the title now. It will just make Abu Dhabi that more exciting.

    Somehow this morning the wife realised that this was an important and potentially pivotal race. So I was allowed to watch it in the lounge on the Big TV.
    She even went off to fetch me tea and mince pies at about Lap 20.
    But at the finish, she just looked at me.
    “Is that it?”
    I must have nodded.
    “Was it worth it?”
    Was it worth it; was it worth me wasting two hours of lfe? Was it worth squandering a large wedge of wifely goodwill and attention for? Had it resolved anything? Had it made my heart beat faster at any point? Had it heightened my excitement of the 2010 season?
    I voted 3 out of 10.

    Oh, and I agree with TMax (above) about Talledaega. I don’t normally like NASCAR, but that was a real race!

      I rated it much higher, but my sympathies for your misspent resources nonetheless – perhaps if you do something nice or make convincingly sad puppy eyes you’ll be treated to the same tender loving care next Sunday? As the French would say: Courage!

  15. I think Hamilton has one option: 2 DNF and one Black flag. It is posible in the last race. (1 DNF in turn 1, and 1 DNF three? laps to go and a Black Flag in the last lap). I am an ALO supporter, but it would be a 10/10 rate race.
