    8/10 – it wasn’t the greatest race and DRS was too much. But all in all good battles even more so on the live timing app because the director of the international feed had never seen a race before.

  2. 5. Yawn-worthy.

    Too much tyre management again which killed the racing AGAIN!

    Watching drivers running around to a lap delta saving tyres, Having to ask the team if they can push or not (As Lewis did) is boring.
    Watching Webber close on Grosjean & then drop back to watch the tyres was boring.
    Watching Webber’s tyres fall off because he was pushing to try & pass Grosjean was boring.

    Formula tyres in general is boring & to be frank im not sure how much longer im going to stick with it :(

      Uhhh no, tyres were ultra-conservative this weekend. The one stop strategy was what everyone aimed for and almost everybody succeeded with ease. Seeing the onboards, it was quite clear they could push the cars the whole race.

      • HoHum (@hohum) said on 17th November 2013, 21:34

        No the 1 stop strategy had them hanging back and not pushing or racing until they got near their planned pit stop or races end.

        • tmekt (@tmekt) said on 17th November 2013, 22:12

          If that had been the case, there would have been more two-stopping teams. We have seen races this year that one or two teams have been able to pull one-stoppers but this time it seemed like everyone, even Mercedes and some other teams that have always been struggling with tire wear were able to do it with minimal pace management.

          Obviously they were nowhere near to what they were in 2005 for example but in terms of Pirelli tires, this was a conservative choice.

    Watched the beginning…….came back half way ……cars in same positions………..came back for the end………..cars in same positions……saw webber nearly overtake someone!!………saw alonso get overtaken!!! then he took the place back!!….then it finished…….did I miss anything while I was away?

  5. Cheerleaders were my favourite part. Where are the cowboy hats for the podium???????????

  6. A decent 6: Pretty dull at the beginning but it did warm towards the end, with battles throughout the field. Webber as usual useless when it comes to making the overtake that matters.

    5 – Good race

  8. Ton Kunnen (@tonnie073) said on 17th November 2013, 20:55

    I gave it a 5, and that was generous. God that was boring, can’t wait for a Brazil that puts all the missed excitement of this year in one race

    Ill give it a 10 just for history, you cant deny its a great achievement i said yday its lucky to have this gd reliability im really wrong about that, you make your own luck. This car is special though guys i no we keep saying it but its undeniable, Webber is not better than Lewis and he took 8 tenths in 1 sector when he got past its unheard of. And that was Webber and we know he is not as good as Seb, so outstanding achievement but its also quit frustrating. Do Vettel fans even enjoy the races alot? I m not going to lie i want Ham to win another championship but not in this way, no driver on the grid has had this car advantage. Hopefully next year is different. I would personally like new tyr supplier, i just cant wait to see back off them they have done something i just dont like,. Today Ham must have been driving to a delta you can hear frustrations in their voice they cant risk pushing. Its no secret they have not helped Ham’s carear imo. But again well done Seb clearly a great driver but it will take a while yet to find out how good, Ric wont hold a candle to him has no race pace.

    But 1 thing id like to say is well done to Hamilton you have beat your teammate in yourr first attempt have more poles should have a win more aswell, sure you have been inconsistent at times but thats the tyres and traffic making him look bad. People say Ros has had retirements, well look at Hungary for insstance Ros retired 2 laps to go in 9th so he lost a measly 2 points lol. He was 6th in Aus and behind Ham. Ham had 12 point loss in Silverstone and retired in Japan. So you have defo finished above him on merit. This wkend i said look at last few races Ham as just been unlucky he as made some great starts and been unlucky today he was not unlucky.

      Ham unlucky, Ros bad driver ladie da.

      Must be said though, this is the first season Lewis ends with less wins than his teammate.

      • danclapp (@danclapp) said on 17th November 2013, 21:33

        Huh what you mean with first sentance. Wh cares Ham beat Rs in his irst year. Ros hamerd Schumi, still looks good even though Schumi was old.

        • danclapp (@danclapp) said on 17th November 2013, 21:37

          Ha ha my keyboard is awful i can spell trust me.

          • I have been watching F1 since 2007, I am an avid Lewis fan, so I rarely care about anything bar his race, other than where Nico finishes, being his team mate, and his position in the championship.

            It has been painful watching F1 since 2009, bar a couple of instances where it has looked like he could have had another championship under his belt (Mid 2010, Points in 2012) I feel I can take something positive from this year, he has certainly been far more consistent this year with Mercedes, bringing home points regularly despite only 1 win, and all being well in Brazil, 3rd is the highest position he has finished in the championship since his WDC in 2008.
            I feel he has another couple under his belt, But I have never felt it’d be under this wide winged, DRS, Pirelli tyre, Vettel dominating era.
            There is still hope for us Lewis fans just yet, chin up mate!

      • Hamilfan (@hamilfan) said on 18th November 2013, 3:59

        @ardenflow good point . But again ‘crappy tyres’. He should have won silverstone .

    • Hamilfan (@hamilfan) said on 18th November 2013, 4:01

      ‘Ill give it a 10 just for history’

      Are you kidding me ? how can you rate a race for historic things . Rate it based on excitement and action .

  10. fangio85 (@fangio85) said on 17th November 2013, 20:56

    Not happy I got up at 5am to watch this race. Totally confusing how people have voted the last few races so highly. Gave it a 3 for the tiny amount of action there was, a grand total of five or so minutes of excitement (if you could call it that) in two hours.

  11. Zantkiller (@zantkiller) said on 17th November 2013, 20:57

    4, a 5 if I was feeling really generous.

    Hearing Martin and Crofty sound like they have lost most of their will to live during a race is never a good sign (Though that could have been for the race director being absolutely terrible).

    The few interesting moments there were did not make up for the long periods of boredom we had to endure.

  12. danclapp (@danclapp) said on 17th November 2013, 20:57

    Happy for Seb on podium he looks really happy talking to the crowd and you can tell the boos do affect him i think he is humble.

  13. Ignoring Vettel , solid battle second, it was amazing to see Webber hunting down Grosjean i’ll give it a 7.

  14. Force Maikel (@force-maikel) said on 17th November 2013, 20:58

    1/10 fell asleep because of the boredom, 2014 can’t come fast enough
