  1. Let’s see…. McLaren dropping the ball, Grosjean too afraid to overtake anyone, Perez knocked out of the points by a strategy error from his team, Massa told to slow down in spite of his improved form for sake of Fernando’s ego, and the first ten laps run under yellows in one of the only overtaking points because the marshals couldn’t figure out how to get Nico’s car out of the way. Yep, pretty terrible all around. 3/10 just for Kimi vs Lewis, but this was otherwise probably the least interesting race of the year.

  2. What a mundane Gaussian distribution!

  3. I’m not normally one of these that complains after every race – but i think that was the least exciting yet. Only points I was excited (mildly at that) was when someone was un-DRSing themselves down the third straight…

  4. i thought the 1st lap was among the best i’ve ever seen. after that……..

  5. Crap race. 3/10 getting bored now of these processions. Feel stupid for getting up at 6.45, been yawning all day for nothing. There will be more highlights in an episode of antiques roadshow than of this race

    1. Try getting up at 1.45, with a dog who expects his walk at 5.30 – really ruins your sleep cycle.

      But Pup sat next to me on the couch and only showed interest in the last couple of laps. Big brown eyes watching for Vettel’s front right to disintegrate. That was about all that kept me awake …

  6. Thank you Mr Tilke you have produced an utterly forgettable track ….again.
    Where are we racing next?? Oh god think I’ll go fishing instead, more action.

  7. I rated it 6. Quite dull concerning the top 5 but very entertaining behind that place. Good fights with the Hulk, Grosjean, Hamilton and specially the STR´s.
    We´ve seen better this year but also much worst.

  8. The track wasn’t a problem, it was the relative performance of the cars – and of course, McLaren shooting themselves in the foot. If Vettel and Webber or Vettel and Alonso had been nose-to-tail in the last 5-6 laps and lead had changed a couple of times, the ratings would’ve gone up massively. But Red Bull were dominant, and that’s that, can’t expect excitement at the front when Vettel has the quickest car in the field.

    Anyone else thinks pole position in Korea should be on the inside line? The cars starting 2, 4, 6, all moved up one place by turn 4. Vettel started last year in second and took the lead from Lewis on the long straight. Coincidence?

  9. Thanks to Hulkenberg and Grosjean I was able to stay awake during the race… and the STRs of course

  10. These 9% rating it 8-10 must be kidding really ..

  11. thats it , remind me not to watch this race next year
    turned the telly off before the finish

  12. I’ve never liked this Korean track and it won’t improve because it is basically built in the middle of nowhere. Why in god’s name did they built this monster in the middle of a swamp? If you take a good look at the layout, then it looks like a nice and fast track. You have the first sector with those straits and the other two twisty sections, but it just doesn’t work.

    If vettel’s engine had stayed intact in ’10 we would have seen the same parade 3 times, that is what these Tillkedromes are all about (except Malaysia). So far none of them have been able to provide a thrilling race for me personal. Austin seems promising, let us hope for the best!

    I wonder if this is the future of F1, dusty tracks, empty grand-stands, massive constructions that might be dumped after three years. All of that just makes me very sad.

    I’d give the Korean GP 2012 a 3/10. I mean a race were the most spectacular moment is when a piece of astro-turf gets caught onto a car is not what I want to get up early for.

  13. Does anyone knows if Kamui has a penalty after the incident. I know stewards are not fully reliable on taking action but when they are they seem fair.(as they ve got more data than us, simple mortals)
    I say this because from the camera angle in the race it s hard to see the cars movements and positions.
    Yes Rosberg was in front of Kamui when he swerved to get close to the racing line but he knew that there was the sauber’s front not far on his left and i dont think Kamui was to slow down while being overtaken and going in a straight line.
    But as i said the camera angle was rubbish so maybe Kobi did move towards Rosberg as well.
    Anyone got some insight? opinions? (based on evidence)

    1. OF course drive through for kobayashi but still my question holds as i do not know why that decision was taken exactly.

  14. I found it to be a dull race overall so only gave it a 5.
