    A good track, plenty of overtaking opportunities, even a surprise on the tyres. But not much in terms of excitement… Hopefully next year India will put a few brooms round the track and I’ll see no reason to not give it a 9 or 10…

    Another typical BORING TilkeTrack!

    The track looks like it might have potential for good racing, but this particular race was boring…

      Every circuit Tilke has designed has looked fantastic on paper yet they’re all mediocre to downright awful when it comes to racing on them.

      I’m sure it’s a lot of fun for the guys inside the car but for those watching “races” on these circuits it’s as dull as dishwater.

    The Race was only average…and only Martin Brundle said as much.as for the Massa/Hamilton, as a ex Motor Racing steward(not sadly in F1) and without the benefit of their extra info, I thought it more down to Hamilton and would have called no extra penalties…Massa was obviously going to have to turn left at some point and lewis was the one doing the overtaking…and he had been penalised stopping for a new front wing…

    the biggest thing this race throws up is that a country with so many poor can spend an obscene amount of money for the entertainment of the few…….I love F1 but I,m starting to find this whole charade a worry

    Not exactly a classic as the beeb were saying it was. I gave it a 6 purely because it wasn’t awful but it wasn’t exactly exciting either.

    Shame the tyres were so conservative. I don’t understand why we aren’t getting races like earlier in the season with lots more degredation. It’s probably because the teams are so clever and have worked out how to manage the tyres better.

    Rated it a 5 as its was an average race with some action. Hamilton v Massa, Button v Webber in the early laps, battle between Schumacher and Rosberg. Oh and the Rowan Atkinson reaction.
    Cant help but think slow 1st,2nd gear corners onto long straights don’t work to aid overtaking. Guy in front always on throttle first and will always be going faster up to the breaking zone.

  8. 5/10 from me. Spent most of the time having twitter conversations as there was pretty much nothing happening on the track.

    Brazil can’t come soon enough. Lets go racing on a race track, not the result of a willy waving contest.

    There was 25 passes yesterday which is only 3 less than Silverstone.

    Funny how everyone always talks about how brilliant Silverstone is when it usually features very little overtaking.

    • You can’t just use a stat like that.

      It depends who was passing who and when. If its people at the back end of the grid, or front runners out of position, or people with pit stops over-lapping, or front runners passing one another.

      Silverstone, there was battles at the front end, which is why people remember it for being more exciting
