    6 but with a few good moments.

    Gave it a 6. Although the most of the race was plain dull, there were some battles on the way which were just under exciting. They need to do something to increase tyre wear at this track…

    the second most boring race of the season, after monaco. the first round was good, but then it got very boring. hopefully the next race will be better ….

    5/10

    Alonso made the day for me!!
    He is never tired of trying.

    4/10. Anyway, great victory for Vettel, the best F1 champion of this time after Schumacher.

    Total trash! I stopped watching it at Lap 40, first time this year.

    5: I enjoyed 5 laps out of 60. We’ve been spoiled by races in recent years. What I find interesting is that the circuit flows nicely, it’s fun watching cars go through sectors 2 and 3. There’s enough elevation change to make the circuit visually appealing, much more so than some recent Tilkedromes. And yet both races have been dismal. I really hope that this combination of visual appeal and dull racing doesn’t apply to COTA in 3 weeks’ time, but I think it probably will.

    these new tracks where the only place to over-take is a boring DRS straight are super awesome!

    The Mclarens/Ferrari wheel to wheel start was awesome, likewise was Lewis’ pitstop, the rest was pretty dull. Loved the first half of the season, now it is reminding me of 2011. 5/10

    Dire.

    Roll on 2014.

    Gave it a 4 because I only slept for 10 laps and for the Hamilton steering wheel swap. The track has a nice flow to it but still too many huge tarmac run off areas and some portions are ridiculously wide, in the purest Tilke tradition.

    To those 1% of people who rated this race a 10 – what the hell is wrong with you??

  13. Pete (@repete86) said on 29th October 2012, 1:28

    Quite possibly worse than Korea. This is the only race so far this year that I didn’t even bother finishing. I was done watching this snoozefest by lap 30.

  14. Yosi (@yoshif8tures) said on 29th October 2012, 3:14

    Started watching it, changed the channel after 20 laps. Looks like we have a mini schumi on our hands. 1/10

    5 because it’s F1, but boring procession. And because the Australian broadcaster inserts ad breaks in 6-lap intervals EVERY round. This time we got to miss HAM’s 5-wheel pit stop and ALO’s pass on WEB.

    Increasing to 6 thanks to the consummate Martin Brundle as podium MC. Terrific and best so far of this format. Format is all well and good, just wish the post-race unilateral was still televised.
