    Decent race – 7/10. Some good battles, different strategies throughout and tense towards the end. Sometimes it was a bit quiet. Good drives by Vettel and the Lotuses though. Vettel looks increasingly nailed on for his 4th title. I just wish the Nurburgring replaced Hockenheim to be on the calendar every year.

    Great race, finally they are racing again and it was definitely one of the better races so far this year !

    Quite simple really, when there are less than ten laps remaining and I cannot control my heart rate due to a battle up at the front, thats a 10!

    having seen the race live on track, i must say that it was very intresting.
    shame about that safety car, otherwise i think grosjean could’ve won the race.
    my first 10/10

    There are a lot of 8 and 9 votes here, though i cannot fathom why. I gave it a 5. I found it boring and predicatble. It was so boring that it actually made DRS seem like a good idea. Imagine what it would have been like if there was no DRS? That is how uninspiring it was- Plus i simply hate the Soft tyre; though they allowed for mixed strategies. Yes, there is performance gain, but what use is that if it is only good for 5 laps (a marked improvement on before).
    I turned off to go have coffee in a Starbucks at the Lakeside Shopping Centre at 14.00 – well before the race ended. The proof is in the number of comments on ALL articles relating to the race. They are well down on the norm.

    I was at the Nurburgring this weekend. And I can tell you it was a fantastic race to watch from the grandstands.
    I was standing along the straight just before the last chicane with a big tv-screen in front.
    The whole race was actionpacked, and especially the blow up from Bianchi was spectacular as it happened right
    in front of my nose. There were loads of overtaking manouvres and also some overtakes at the chicane were not shown on TV so there was even more action than you have seen on TV. And watching Kimi closing in on Vettel on the final stage of the race was nailbiting stuff. So this was definately a 10/10 for me!

    We had Grosjean pushing for twice as long on softs, the lotuses chasing down Vettel, Raikkonen struggling to pass Hamilton, barely any tire drama. On the other hand, we had a terrible accident in the pitlane and… a car rolling down hill.


    Oh yeah. Alonso raced an anonymous race and came out of nowhere to challenge for podium AGAIN.

    was this my feeling or there wasn’t any sort of contact made between the cars throughout the hole race??

    Pretty good race..9/10.

  12. Bobby (@f1bobby) said on 7th July 2013, 22:56

    Pretty boring. The gap to the leader might as well have been 30 seconds for all the difference it made. Highlight of the race was Bianchi’s car rolling slowly across the track under it’s own volition, haha.

    Actually wanted to give it a 10 but mistakenly clicked 9. Nail-biting race particularly the last few laps between VET and RAI. Almost had a heart attack :) Vettel thoroughly deserved this one. Fantastic start and he stayed composed and focused until the end. Excellent job from Kimi for fighting for 1st, great drives from Grosjean and Alonso, and to Webber for getting to 8th from last after that pitstop debacle.

    Still dislike these tires

  15. RACERNORRISKI (@racernorriski) said on 7th July 2013, 23:22

    I gave it a 9 due to SC being an unnecessary nuisance. Some of my favorite drivers did well: Kimi, Grosjean, Webber, and Button, not sure what happened to Massa, or Rosberg. Thanks, Ray
