  1. Had to give it a 9/10, despite the Ferrari win. As seems to be theme, would have been 10/10 had Sauber not lost the race for Perez.

  2. I have to admit I’m slightly disappointed with Sergio at the end, but nevertheless a brilliant drive. I gave it 9/10 for thrills and spills throughout the race

  3. Sauber engineer is a moron, should have been a 10.

  4. Such a disappointment for Perez, obviously Ferrari couldn’t have caused his off but it’s so ugly that that engineer came over and said what he said when he did.

    It’s a fickle old sport is this. These fairytales so rarely come to pass, and when they seem destined, you’re always just waiting for something to go wrong… and it usually does.

  5. Not the result I wanted, but a good race. 8/10

    What a result! Ecstatic for Ferrari and Sauber. Ferrari have been able to make some good point even while their car is struggling and that should really push them to better the car as we go along. Perhaps they gambled on a more wet weather setup today and it paid off.

    I think the race time needs to be pushed back…fans don’t deserve a washout. Also perhaps the race could have been restarted a bit earlier.

  7. i voted 10 but i should’ve gone with a 9. Perez could’ve done it.

  8. Gave it a 10, even though Perez didn’t quite make it the grandstand finale. It was a gripping race start to finish, drama all the way and quite simply astounding drives by Alonso and Perez. Best race since China last year.

    Big congrats to Perez on an outstanding drive! Would have won it if the team didnt get cold feet.
    Main question is – How did McLaren manage to mess up their race so much??

  10. 6 for me. Sure it was nice to see Perez up on the podium, but the middle part was really boring. There were huge gaps betweens drivers, drivers who fell to the back never mounted a comeback. Most of the race was plain boring.

  11. Sergio Perez drove the wheels off his Sauber-Ferrari. Props to him and his team for a much deserved P2. I wouldn’t be surprised if he gets the call to replace Massa soon. I like Felipe but his lack of performance is hard to explain, particularly now with Fernando’s win (despite not having the quickest car).

  12. I feel so sorry for Grosjean He’s had a lot of bad luck.
    I hope his luck changes next race.

  13. Gutted that PĂ©rez didn’t win! But what a race and what a season we will have (As long as Vettel doesn’t win)

  14. I gave it an 8. didn’t want to go higher because i’m sure there would be more exciting race to come. wow i duff my hat to Perez.. what a drive. He could have won that race easily had the team pitted him a lap earlier. Great drive from Alonzo as well.

    What the hell is going in Mclaren’s garade. One race, they say the driver in the lead gets the first pit stop then other races its not… Their pit stops were horrible as well.. and their race pace was clearly not excellent. Shocker!
    Definitely a good race with a few surprises so i’m looking forward to an exciting season

  15. Honestly, apart from the pecking order reshuffle, i didn’t feel it was that exciting (not that it was boring, of course). Particularly, the only gap which was shriking was ALO-PER, the rest pretty much kept positions and gaps. The race pretty much ended when the switch to the medium tyres was made.
    Nice battles to watch here and there.

  16. 10. except what?

  17. The race deserves a 9, but I really get annoyed with safety cars and red flags due to wet weather, so I give it an 8. So happy for Alonso and Perez, I rarely feel emotional watching sports, but this was special.

  18. Did Vettel ignore his team? It sounded like the engineer told him to retire more than once but Vettel yelled “stay out, stay out”?

  19. 10 imo, the race was an absolute classic. There’s no judging the result, certainly Perez fighting Alonso at the end would’ve been nice though.

      I was hoping for a neck-to-neck battle. Perez was faster but FA is a great defender. But without Perez’s mistake we probably would have seen an easy-does-it DRS pass, it is ruining the fun.
