  1. Quite a dull and boring race, although I have to commend the ‘slower teams’ as they had some good and tight racing. Pity about the rest though!

  2. I’m thinking of starting a petition to have the swing bridge opened at certain times during the GP. Either that or sprinklers. Any thoughts?

  3. Best race in Valencia track, but the worst of the season so far.They need to drop this sooner rather then later.

  4. Dull.

    Even with the new tyres, KERS and DRS this track was still dull. I ended up doing something else and just listening to the coverage in the background in case anything happened.

    I’m surprised so many are that negative about the race. There was a battle for second, a strategic battle for fourth, and some battles in the midfield. This was only a boring race by 2011’s chaotic standards.

    Of course, I do sympathise that this is the ‘Race that the Championship Ended’. Also, if you’re not a Vettel fan (and I’m guessing there are plenty of those around on this site), then it was disappointing to see him resume his dominance, when in the run-up many expected Fernando and Lewis to really challenge him.

    1. Trust me ,if Jenson won again it would still be the most boring race track in the world,even the drivers hate the place.

  6. Dullest race since Bahrain 2010. I gave it 4/10 but it would have been a 2 or 3 if not for Button’s overtake on Rosberg, Alonso’s on Webber, and Hamilton’s hilarious pit radio “I can’t drive any slower!”

    Other than Alonso’s move at the beginning of the race it was a snoozer.I fell asleep three times trying to watch the race.The racing at the back of the field was much more exciting. To bad the world feed only watched the procession at the front.

  8. Only a 5 from me and that was probably being generous, dullest race of the season so far.

    How much longer can they continue to have two races in Spain when neither track seems to be able to produce great races. If the two tracks were of the standard of Interlagos or Montreal I could understand it.

  9. According to this link, Valenica GP is going to be extended until 2021, and it will be the only Spanish GP.

  10. I’ve had enough of this race now, it’s a total joke to even call it a race.

    It’s more like 57 Parade laps to show off sponsors.

    Mind you, the ammount of safety car proceedures we have now at the first sight of a few spots of rain, smudging the pits babes mascara, a precession (was) becoming the norm.

    I just hope that the exciting races we have seen this season have not just been a fluke. The new Pirelli tyres seem to be gaining durability. Which (without refuelling being a variable in races) is worrying, because this was the reason that the races had become more exciting.

    NOT due to DRS (IMO). ;)

  11. The worst race of the 2010 season so far I give 4 / 10 for this race

  12. every report i read on this race described it as ‘thrilling’ and ‘action-packed’. i would actually agree with these.
    the alonso/webber battle lasted for the whole race. i dont think vettel was ever more than 3 seconds ahead for most of the race. it was unpredictable. if it was boring i think i would have noticed.
