    Fantastic race! Had no idea who would be on top until the checkered flag!! 9/10 for me, would have been 10/10 but we still have 16 races to go!!

    Despite early tactical and pit problems from vettels opponents seems like redbull made a mistake and what a drive by Ham and from Web trying to overtake opponents with less 80bhp on one of the slowest cars on top speed bad luck again for ferrari not a great start neither pit stop and strategy nice race a bit too much about tyre fresheness and drs

    Great race, had to give it a 10, I don’t know what more a race can have – no big mayhem or rain, and still a race without any boring moment. Just perfect, and that in China, really great stuff.

    Great drive by HAM, Webber a great save, Vettel also doing all he could, defending really well and keeping his 2nd spot; Massa also a very good drive, I think he got the most he could out of that Ferrari today, Nico Rosberg showing that Merc is indeed in the mix if they get everything working; MSC showing good pace, and having a fighting race with Alonso, Webber, and others. Renault show that teams really need to keep working in this environment to not drop behind, but showing they are there to fight another day. Very good.

    I take it back, China can stay on the calendar forever now.

    10/10.

    Shockingly brilliant!

    Absolutely fantastic Race! Beats Canada last year. Action from start to finish. And Hamilton won! YES!

    Brilliant race.

    Action everywhere, Even Lewis’s Engine before the race o to of everything. Have to say it would be equal to Suzuka 2005 except for Alonso at 130R, Cant match the drama of Brazil 2008 but that can never be beat!

    still

    10/10, Think this has to take the record!

    Very good race. Well worth an 8/10. Had Webber taken Vettel at the end, it would have been a perfect race!

    Good drive by Hamilton. Not an exceptional drive, considering his tires were 6 laps newer, but a very good strategy and good drive nonetheless.

    Ferrari could have done better if they had done a three stop, and I think Alonso needs to seriously work on his start. However we all know how Massa shines in first few tracks of the year but struggles on the rest, where as Alonso is consistent throughout.

    10/10 for excitement.

    11/10 for excitment at a venue the fans hate.

    10/10 for proving that Red Bull and Sebastian Vettel can be beaten.

    1/10 because my live feed crashed a lap before Hamilton passed Vettel and I never got it back.

    Huge chunk of rubber off the inner right tyre of Hamilton. I can see the canvas.

    I did not expect that. Did I just watch Shanghai in the dry? Damn, that was amazing race!

    Ok Fanatics, this one had it all! Kers, drs, and tire degradation all added to this incredible race. We saw Lewis ( contrary to popular belief) masterfully manage/preserve his tires, Webber storm thru the field, Filipe truly returning to form and Schu showing why he’s won seven titles. I am very curious to read the complaints of the incessant naysayers… I say, Bravo! This one is a classic to be remembered in the annuls of F1 lore. PERFECT 10…

    that is on par if not better with canada 10… heart was pounding all the way through as a die hard hamilton fan =P martin brundell got it perfectly: “that is a drive of a world champion…” 10/10

  14. Icthyes (@icthyes) said on 17th April 2011, 9:57

    Easily easily easily easily the best race in 6 years and arguably the best since the Nurburgring 1999.

    Very deserving of the first 10 I’ve ever given on F1F. I’m usually very strict about rating races highly, but wow. Wow wow wo.

    best race ever
