    I’ve said it for the last few years and I still think the start time should be moved back to when it used to be, the sun is to low near the end of the race. Judging from some of the onboard shots it can’t be easy for the drivers, and even from a viewers point of view there were some clips where I couldn’t tell which car it was at first because of the light.

    Regarding the race itself, I thought it was a 7.5 rounded up to an 8. I only saw the BBC highlights and I felt I was missing out and so didn’t enjoy as much as usual so I was tempted to just rate a 7 but decided against it in the end.

    I hoped after the safety car with all the leaders together on track that we might have seen at least some attempted overtakes but we didn’t. I don’t know if this was done to there being no chances or if the drivers were happy with getting a solid start to the season rather than making a risky move, I could see this being the case with Hamilton after last year.

    There was plenty of action down the field to keep us entertained, especially the last lap fight for the last few points.

  2. There was a lot of action behind but none action for the first and second place so that but because there was a lot of actions on behind ill say 6.
    Kimi made quite a show with the overpassing he made it from 18 to 7 so that was fun to watch
    Also Alonso made quite a nice race with an excelent start.
