  1. the safety car saved this race otherwise it was …average, 7 for me

  2. Umm, I gave it a 5. Better than it ever has been at Valencia but then so is stripping paint off a 50 year old door.

    It only came alive because of the questionable SC and the two significant retirements. Otherwise, Valencia.

    Very happy to see Alonso win though – thoroughly deserved. That’s what you call making your own luck…

  3. Wowzers, what a race! It was pure entertainment from start to finish for me. This is why cars should be more unreliable, as it creates so much drama. There was some great racing due to different strategies and with people like Webber and Schumacher out of place it was great to watch them come through the pack.

    A superb result with Alonso taking the win at home and you could see how much it meant to him, I’ve not seen him like that maybe ever. I’m really excited for the rest of the season and it’s great to see Alonso and Webber leading the way in the championship points, always glad of a change at the top.

    I voted 9

  4. Wow an exciting race at Valencia who would have thought it, even with the 2012 Pirelli tyres. I rated it an 8.

    The safety car and Vettel’s retirement certainly helped, if Vettel’s car hadn’t given up he would have cruised to victory like he did so many times last year, and then Grosjean also retired just as it lucked we might have a good battle for the lead.

  5. this is the only track that i can landmark a corner. every part of the track looks so similar. the only landmarks on this track is the cranes in the background and the old fish market.

    loves the train of cars going through the corners!!!!
    love how quali pace has nothing to do with the race (williams n force india doing better)

    thank you PIRELLI

    would have love to see vettel and grosian battle it out… but Silverstone is a different ball game
    love how ferrari/alonso never gave up

    lewis is da boss!! but he should have given maldonado the position (seems both were battling it out to be on the podium and both were sidelined!)

  6. fantastic race best of 2012
