    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”?

    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 .

    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.

    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.

    Some good hard race from start to finish.

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

  7. 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.

    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..

  9. 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

      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.

        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

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

  11. Nick (@npf1) said on 28th July 2013, 16:33

    Gave it a 7. While the strategies were interesting, there were some good battles and I didn’t zone out like some Hungarian GPs before, a lot of battles for position were denied due to the track’s characteristics. Raikkonen is doing some great overtakes lately and Hamilton’s moves on Webber were amazing, but at the same time we have Vettel not being able to pass Button, holding up Grosjean as well, Grosjean having a great race with some dreadful moves still and Vettel complaining over the radio like last year. Vettel has grown a lot, but I don’t understand his panic behind the wheel.

    As for Alonso and Ferrari, windtunnel problems or not, they’re throwing away their season. I’m beginning to get the same feelings as I had about them with Schumacher in 2005/6 and Raikkonen in 2008, it’s not working and they seem to be unable to find a solution.

    an 8 from me. Very exciting and some ballsy overtaking maneuvers which you should do, if you want to overtake in Hungary

    One thing I don’t understand is how on earth Webber didn’t manage to hunt down Vettel in the closing laps. He was on new options and the options which were used in qualy held up for 10 laps no problem at the start of the race with heavy cars and less rubbered track. So how come Webber stopped catching Vettel after 5 laps on new options at the end of the race? The only answer I can see is the “fail 22″ message was given to protect golden boy from attack. Quite what had MW to lose from sticking two-fingers up to this I don’t know. Or maybe they fed him misinformation about the gaps so he’ll oblige? So many questions I have and no answers.

    IMO Webber isn’t hard enough ATM. He gave up the chase of Seb too easily and he gave up the positions to Hamilton twice too easily. Great start and great race from 10th to 4th but could’ve been more

    6, not a Spa, not a Monaco.

    Congratulations to Williams, by the way!

  14. Jorge Lardone (@jorge-lardone) said on 28th July 2013, 16:56

    9 for me. Great victory for Hamilton and very good race also for Kimi, Vettel, Weber and Grosjean.
    Three better drivers of today formula 1 in the podium! 3 great champions!

    A strong 8. Very good race, lots of action, great drive by Hamilton. Kimi got smoked on pace by Grosjean this weekend but managed to stay out of trouble during the race and finished a strong second so kudos to him.
