    First part of the race and until the safety car came in, it was nearly a procession with strategies more or less the same and an extreme difficulty to pass another car. After the SC things got a little bit together, and we could watch some really nice wheel to wheel battles.
    So it´s a 4 for 1st part of the race and a 6 for the 2nd part which means an average 5.

    10 for me…..I love these kinds of races….lots of crashes and SC periods.

  3. Gave it a 5 loosing LH was massively disappointing and the track is just another Monaco at night very boring.

  4. I gave it 8. First half of the race was extremely drowsy, but every single lap after the first SC episode were pure gold!

    A 7 from me. The on track action wasn’t particularly exciting but the presence of a couple of Safety Cars at least offered a potential opportunity for some shuffling of the grid near the front. Other than that it was entertaining and just as it was entering a bit of a lull Hamilton’s gearbox went and failed which livened things up.

  6. 6/10
    I gave it the sufficiency onl because 20 laps from the end there were a good 10 laps, closely fought and full of excitement. The rest was boring to say the least.

    Terrible for a hamilton fan

  8. A rating of 3/10 from me today. Not because the racing was particularly boring (much of it was) or even because of the retirements (Self-confessed Hamilton fan).

    3/10 because clearly BEFORE the safety car period, it was going to be impossible to complete the proscribed 61 laps in 2 hours in normal conditions- the half-way point occurred at around 1 hour and 2 mins. Why set an unachievable target? Make it 55 laps, that would still have made it a marathon for the drivers in those conditions.

      Are u mad? The race was only shortened by 2 laps and the saftey car was out for a good 10 minutes. With a lap here taking 1 minute 50ish the last 2 laps would have easily fit in.

      The race would easily have been completed had it been green-flag all the way. The cars lap much quicker in the second half of the race because the fuel loads have come down.

    replying to my own comment….ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

  10. 4/10.
    +1 – It’s Singapore and looks pretty under the lights.
    +1 – WDC shaken up.
    +2 – DiResta in 4th, Glock’s drive to 12th, Alonso in 3rd when it was a deserved 5th, Massa in points.
    +1 – 1x Spectacular crash
    -1 – Vettel’s celebration on the radio. ‘We showed them!’? Really? I think McLaren more or less showed themselves.

    The thought of another 5 years at this snorefest of a track is really something to NOT get excited about. Pretty lights don’t make a good race. 4/10 for me.

  12. 5. Completely average. Not awful, but nothing special.

    8. The first half was poor, and the two safety cars almost made me fall asleep, but the post-SC laps were exceptional. First place isn’t everything.

  14. I myself found today’s race spectacular, gave it 9/10 because of the second half. Some bold overtaking maneuvers (including overtake of the year by Massa), cool crashes and near misses, great fights (Saubers for instance) and drama (Hamilton retiring). And the best podium interview so far.

    Some people are just so butthurt over Hamilton’s retirement that I just cannot believe it. It didn’t make the race a bit less entertaining goddammit!

      Massa’s overtake was only because he lost control of his car and got lucky. Hence the investigation.

      • Massa lost control because of the attempt, not the other way, he braked way “too” deep into the corner. The investigation was because they touched a bit, probably to find out whether Senna left enough space in between him and the wall, as he did.

    8 for me. I enjoyed the race, the attrition, the scenery, and the result.
