    6/10, Can’t see how anyone could really give it more than that to be honest?

    Hardly any overtaking, Hardly any opportunity for overtaking, No fight at the front & not a lot going on.

    Races liek this where Vettel wins usually get rated below 5, clearly Hamilton-Bias going on here as usual!

    Solid 8 – Hungary needs to change the layout a bit to make overtaking easier towards turn 1, 2 or 4. Then it would be an even better grand prix.

    • Sean Doyle (@spdoyle17) said on 28th July 2013, 15:15

      It’d take some landscaping, but why not straighten out the run between 3 and 5, and turn 4 into a slight kink?

      Also looking at the maps, perhaps convert turn 10 to a double hairpin, and follow that with a sweeper leading into what now is turn 12?

      • TMF (@tmf42) said on 28th July 2013, 16:31

        there is a lot of ground water beneath the circuit so doing massive landscaping like you suggest is gonna be extremely expensive. But I think if they changed turn 2 – make it leaning inwards to allow a variable race line then we’d see more overtakes already.

    Went with a 4. Monaco without walls – so true.

  4. Hamilton has now win a race in every season since he is in F1.

    • Theoddkiwi (@theoddkiwi) said on 28th July 2013, 15:15

      A win and a pole. The only driver in history. This is also Hamilton’s first back to back wins for a particular race.

      • Max Jacobson (@vettel1) said on 28th July 2013, 16:49

        @theoddkiwi well that all depends if you define it by the calendar or simply by whole seasons, as if we exclude Vettel’s half-season in 2007 he’s also achieved that statistic. Nonetheless deeply impressive from Hamilton but also a mark of just how fortunate he has been with regards to his entry into F1 straight into a top team.

    • Lari (@lari) said on 28th July 2013, 15:32

      Is he the only driver also to have been in a team with winning capability for the whole career so far this getting these results? Not many people get the chance to start from a winning team @ race 1 in their careers.

      • Hamilfan (@hamilfan) said on 28th July 2013, 16:16

        ya not a great stat to boast about ! But he has loads of other stats ;) ..BTW where is he in the all time pole position list ? anyone ?

        • Max Jacobson (@vettel1) said on 28th July 2013, 17:26

          @hamilfan he is currently 7th (with 30) behind Mansell (32), Prost (33), Clark (33), Vettel (39), Senna (65) and Schumacher (68).

          • Hamilfan (@hamilfan) said on 28th July 2013, 17:58

            Wow vettel has that one going … can’t see lewis catching up unless vettel has a barren streak which is unlikely at the moment . Senna 65 ! respect !

          • Max Jacobson (@vettel1) said on 28th July 2013, 19:05

            @hamilfan Senna really owns that statistic though, as Schumacher took 250 races to reach that value whereas Senna only took 162 races – serious respect!

            I’m going to take a guess that Vettel will add to that tally before the end of the season also but well done to both of them – they’ve still got several years left each to add to their respective totals!

      • AlokIn (@) said on 28th July 2013, 16:27

        Button was Lewis’s team mate for 3 years and he has only one pole to his credit compared to Lewis’s 9 poles.
        It does not mean that every one will get a pole , if you have a good car.
        Driver skills do matter a lot.

        • Aldoid said on 28th July 2013, 17:13

          Exactly… & the one pole Jenson got was when Lewis & his side of the garage got the wing choice wrong. Compare Vettel’s poles to Webber’s during their tenure together @ RBR as well.

  5. Dimitris 1395 (@dimitris-1395) said on 28th July 2013, 15:00

    I liked it. It had an unexpected winner, variety of strategies some good battles and plenty of brave overtakes. Oh, and there were no DRS power or tyres drama.
    9/10

  6. Rigi (@rigi) said on 28th July 2013, 15:00

    a solid 7
    pretty entertaining race, however spoiled by that incredibly stupid penalty for grosjeans who would’ve been a contender for the podium aswell

  7. Danksa (@danieljaksa) said on 28th July 2013, 15:01

    8. Enjoyed the race. Great pass by Ham on Web with the back-marker in the mix – WOW!

  8. Chris (@tophercheese21) said on 28th July 2013, 15:03

    Loved every moment of it! 9

    • Chris (@tophercheese21) said on 28th July 2013, 15:24

      I picked Vettel to win, and im SO PLEASED that I was wrong!

      Pros:
      – Hamilton wins!!!
      – Mercedes race pace was actually really decent.
      – Epic battle between Grosjean + Vettel
      – Great recovery from Mark
      – Kimi’s ability to look after tyres and still keep relatively good pace is incredible. Great strategic call for the 2-stop.
      – Button holding up Vettel was very entertaining. Particularly enjoyed that!
      – Good to see Williams finally getting their first point!

      Cons:
      – Unfortunate to see Grosjean shoot himself in the foot repeatedly.
      – Ferrari have to improve their car. Fernando will not even come close to winning the WDC with his current equipment. As good as Fernando is, no one can compete with that machinery.

  9. JackySteeg (@jackysteeg) said on 28th July 2013, 15:13

    Didn’t get a single element of my predictions right, so 1/10.

    …I joke, of course.

    A very solid 8/10 for me. Not a classic but thoroughly enjoyable all the way through. Overtaking, while not impossible, was not as easy as in previous races, which resulted in some very enjoyable passes.

    The only thing that’s left a bitter taste is the penalty following Grosjean’s sensational move on Massa. But, them’s the rules, so no point in complaining about that.

  10. dutch in sweden (@dutch-in-sweden) said on 28th July 2013, 15:15

    8 for me, nice to see Mclaren working their way to the front again and finally that first point for Williams

  11. Jon Sandor (@jonsan) said on 28th July 2013, 15:15

    This, along with Monaco, is the worst track on the calendar. Along with the desperately unfair penalty on Grosjean, I was underwhelmed. Is there some secret FIA rule along the lines of “Thou shalt not overtake a Ferrari”?

  12. Hamilfan (@hamilfan) said on 28th July 2013, 15:16

    Was torn between 7 or 8 but gave it an 8/10 . we saw vettel vs button vs grosjean which had me in the edge of the seat . In the end Kimi vs vettel was so close . Couldn’t ask for too much more there .

  13. Bazza Spock (@bazza-spock) said on 28th July 2013, 15:21

    There were some great battles. I was happy to see hamilton win. I was happy to see vettel earning his pay. Happy to see Kimi on the podium. But man, that second Lotus is being under-driven, and kimi and vettel are so pal-ly — it’s really looking like Lotus will have two empty seats at the end of the season.

  14. ching ho (@chingh) said on 28th July 2013, 15:28

    A short poem to sum up the start of the race for me:

    Hammy lined up first on the grid
    As the weather looked increasingly torrid
    He waited patiently for the lights
    As he narrowed his sights
    To the first corner 600m ahead
    “Grosjean, don’t crash into me,” he pled
    And so the lights wet out, and the racing began
    And dear Hammy tried the best he can
    To avoid any attacks from the nearing frenchman
    And just as the cars raced wheel to wheel
    My father called me in for a meal.

    (to be continued.)

    After FP1 and FP2 on Friday, I really though we were in for a tedious time at one of my least favourite tracks with Red Bull just disappearing into the distance. Instead we had a great race for once. Not ruined by DRS passes ad infinitum, but enlivened by differing tyre strategies. It’s still a horrid track, though.
    I think Hamilton should say a very special ‘thank you’ to Button for keeping Vettel behind for 12 laps. Rather disappointed for Ferrari, and surprised Vettel couldn’t pass Kimi at the end. Don’t know what to say about Grosjean; someone needs to take the lad in hand and point out a few home truths to him.
    8 overall.

  16. Coanda (@ming-mong) said on 28th July 2013, 15:35

    Some good hard race from start to finish.

    I’d love to know what RBR “FAIL 22″ message was about…

  17. Ed Marques (@edmarques) said on 28th July 2013, 15:39

    Gave it 9. Great race, with great strategies battles, great overtake maneuvers.
    Hamilton was perfect, the pass on Button was essential. Great drives from Raikkonen and Vettel also.
    Feel bad for Grojean, second was his if not for the penalty, which i think was a bit harsh.
    Happy for Williams also.

  18. venom (@venom) said on 28th July 2013, 15:48

    great drive from grojean, unfortunate but hope he learns..dont know what alonso was on about in the press interview seems he was not very happy with grojean..

  19. rajaaryan said on 28th July 2013, 15:53

    what is happening to ferrari and alonso . alonso should quit ferrari and move into some other team ,maybe redbull or so if possible .ferrari sucks and as good as a talent alonso is ,he is wasting in time with ferrari and their come next year we would dominate with a super car strategy

    • JackySteeg (@jackysteeg) said on 28th July 2013, 16:01

      There isn’t a driver in F1 who wouldn’t give up their seat for a chance to be Ferrari’s favoured driver. It is a luxury that only a handful of even the greatest ever drivers will experience. Just to be in that position is an enormous achievement in itself. Alonso’s not going to give that place up for anything.

      • Hamilfan (@hamilfan) said on 28th July 2013, 16:25

        Oh come on ! I understand that prestige but ultimately you want to win !

      • rajaaryan said on 28th July 2013, 18:25

        are u kidding .winning is something that ultimately matters .no one would remember massa 20 years down the line .alonso should win .its should be about winning ,not prestige and how u did in the past

  20. James (@speedking84) said on 28th July 2013, 15:59

    1/10, Grosjean got a penalty for overtaking. Shame about the ban on overtaking, improves safety I suppose.
