  1. 10. Excellent race. Everyone fighting, everybody was pushing, the whole race was thrilling and the last laps were the best since the 2013 British GP. This race was the best since Brazil 2012. Also congrats to Perez, he made an awesome job, I hope McLaren learns about his mistake.

  2. It was looking like a solid 2, but the second hour was some of the best racing in years!

  3. Noah’s ark formation means the only racing is between team mates and not other drivers and cars.

    Race was okay for 47 laps but having a safety car made 10 laps of real good racing.

    Funny how vettel thought he was slow down the straights after ricciardo got him.

    1. Noah’s ark formation means the only racing is between team mates and not other drivers and cars.

      Did you really not see any racing between different teams?

  4. If you can find fault with that then you may as well stop watching motor sports. That’s as good as it gets.

    1. +1;-) Only problem is, when it is this good, You miss out on much of the action, because so much happens at the same time, that FOM has to chose what to show us. And while they showed us the replays a lot of stuff happened.

    2. You know what, after reading this comments today and people praising the race, I think I’m gonna stop watching F1. I’ve been watching since 1994 but seeing all this 2011 new fans rating this 10/10. I think what I’m gonna do is stop reading this site commentaries and rate the race posts. Hope Keith will comment on the race, I hope he says its a 3 like I did, cause this F1 is not racing.

      1. It would be useful to know why you didn’t like it.

  5. @keithcollantine silly idea putting this article up straight after the finish dont you think? let people digest it a bit.

    1. @sato113 – I think rate the race should be your immediate view. How enjoyable was it? You know that now.

    2. It is always posted right after the race.

      1. @gabal i know it is. my argument is it shouldn’t be.

  6. 10/10. I don’t remember getting so excited with a race in a long time.

  7. Well done to the Brackley boys. Rosberg was faster, but Hamilton defended superbly whenever it mattered. Other than that, great battles all around. Good tussle, between Williams, RB and of course Force India. Congratulations to Perez!

  8. That has to be one of the greatest races of recent times. Amazing battles throughout the field and even at the front. Very cool.

  9. 10
    Simple as that.
    I looked like a little, excited child while watching this amazing race. Istant classic

  10. Oh and I also loved how there was so much overtaking and attempts to pass outside the DRS zones. Defensive driving was on show once again which makes passes that much better when they finally come off!

  11. Easily 10/10, epic race.

    Changes throughout the grid including the lead which is to often recently been non-existent.

    Maldonado deserves to be banned from F1…. again and again stupid suicidal moves. I understand drivers do silly things now and again, they are only human. But Pastor is just crazy, so dangerous and he could easily end up seriously hurting someone. Or worse…

  12. 9 for the race + 1 point for having Brian Johnson on the podium. What a spectacle!

  13. I didn’t expect that. Real racing, everything worked perfectly today.
    Shame on Ferrari, they are terrible.

  14. Lots of close battles enhanced by DRS throughout the field. Absolutely great race!

  15. hopefully the racing will make the people complaining about noise realise what F1 is really about

  16. Very good race, great overtaking. 8/10

    Two minus points:
    – Safety car is always giving a random advantage or disadvantage to some drivers. Plus it was way too long
    – Live timing is useless. Can’t follow strategy.

    How many laps did the Mercs have to pull that 24 second gap? 10 or 11? Crazy. Doesn’t bode well for a win by any other team this season.

    1. Number 1 is part of the core of F1.

      And number 2 is not directly related to the race itself.

      1. I used the F1 app, which worked almost great during this race. Not without errors, but I could follow the strategies, keep track of each drivers no of pitstops, which tyres he was on, how many laps old the tyres was, how far behind the driver in front he was, laptimes, sector times etc. etc. For an action packed race like this, the App is almost a must.

  17. I don’t like voting 10. I had to really consider what would make the race better. I couldn’t think of much besides ideally wanting more than 1 team involved at the front. But we still had a battle for the lead and battles all the way through the field, and I found the Mercedes dominance after the safety car somewhat awe inspiring (if not so good for actual racing). 10- there wasn’t enough to detract from the great bits to warrant less.

  18. wow..not taxi racing definitely :) Rated – 10

  19. This is the best Formula 1 race I’ve watched since 2012. Truly, absolutely astounding! I haven’t shouted so much at a TV in a very long time.

  20. Absolutely perfect race! Only one bad thing – and that’s Maldonator… Pity about Williams because of him.

    I follow F1 since 1999 and I think this was the best dry race I have ever saw!!!
