    Lots of swapping of places during the pit stops with promise of action on the track that didn’t quite deliver. I did find the constant mention of tyre management to be hugely frustrating.

    Pure boring.

    Delighted that Hamilton won, but was very disappointed with the lack of overtaking… A bit of a damp squib to enter the summer break on… Kimi was superb, and elevated it to a 6 for me.

    3. .nothing really to watch except Kimi and Romain’s charge at Ham for a while. .
    but happy for McLaren. .that was an amazing drive by Hamilton.

    on the other hand, imo Michael would have a better chance of finishing a race in HRT/Marussia/Caterham instead of that Merc. .

    I loved every minute of it!
    All the strategies of the teams (especially Raikkonen to get from 5th to 2nd) throughout the race trying to out think each other, was extremely absorbing to watch.

    Of course I mainly voted it so highly because HAMILTON WON!!!!
    And I was amazed to see how fast Raikkonen’s lotus was half way through his final stint.

    Great race!

    6 for me. there wasn’t that much action going on here… not that i expected action particularly on this track

    7. Almost zero overtaking but great strategic battles and a final result that promises an interesting fight for the championship.

    5, bit of an anticlimax because there were no overtakes

    Very boring, gave it a 6 because I’m a Lotus fan so for me it was exciting to see them doing well. Good strategy for Kimi, but nothing much else happened

    Very average. Kimi’s last minute fightback only saved it from being a typically, infamous, processional Grand Prix for me.

    Very very boring race

    7 for me. Hamilton won – well deserved. However, somewhat disappointing that it is so difficult to overtake. DRS did nothing, also KERS just – there is no point in having it.

    Wth happened at the start? It seemed that the guy who is supposed to walk across the road with a “all clear” green flag just never showed up and .. all of sudden he started dancing across the road – it seemed like he was talking on the phone with someone. The MSC turns his car off? why would you turn your car off!?

    I accidentally voted 5 but it deserve 4, the only thing was Kimi’s pass over Romain after the pit stop.

    Yes it was a procession, but it was very close and intriguing if you knew where to look. Formula 1 in its current state is boring- the artificiality is making it more so. Don’t fix what’s not broken. However, this race at least remained interesting and as a result it was bearable. There have been much worse races this year (Silverstone and Monaco for example).
