    5: Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
    Watching the Space Shuttle crawl through LA’s more exciting…..at least we didn’t have to get up at 5am.

  2. Red Bull cruising to victory, McLaren being forced to retire one driver while the other has to deal with mechanical issues, Ferrari issuing team orders (yes it’s for the championship points but it doesn’t provide entertainment) while virtually everything else was a procession, and on top of that Gangnam Style being squeezed out everywhere.

    Yep, this was the worst GP of the year I think.

    8/10. Great driving from many drivers. Great victory of Vettel, again!

    Interesting start and then 2 hrs of borefest presented by Seb, and also suck for the championship

    Hamilton pushing Kimi around needlessly in the first few corners was interesting. I’m glad he drifted back. I find his aggressive style abhorrent at times.

    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.

    What a mundane Gaussian distribution!

    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…

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

    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

      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 …

    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.

    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.

    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?

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

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