    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.

      Number 1 is part of the core of F1.

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

        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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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!!!

  6. 9/10. Better than the entire 2013 season

    9. Amazing race. Fantastic final result Hamilton, Rosberg, Perez and Ricciardo. Only reason that I can not give a 10 is I am Magnussen and McLaren fan and they did not finish. Never seen so many overtakings in one race.

    WOW! WOW! What a race…it was like watching a Moto GP or World Superbikes race. Phew! One thing’s sure – Mercedes-Benz has not only the best cars on the grid, but also the BEST drivers! Take that Sebastian Vettel…would you be able to handle racing like this?

    Take that you Red Bull, Ferrari and FOM naysayers…

    10/10! What a race! Smashdonado might have caused a bad accident, but he helped the racing!

  10. Pete (@repete86) said on 6th April 2014, 18:04

    Epic, epic race! I thought that the safety car was going to ruin the HAM/ROS battle, but it just made it that more spectacular to watch Hamilton fend off Rosberg’s car with better tires. That’s probably the best race I’ve seen.

  11. thetobs (@thetobs) said on 6th April 2014, 18:04

    10/10. Best race in a while. A lot of inter team battles and the two Mercedes almost touching. This is how every F1 race should be.

  12. Uzair Syed (@ultimateuzair) said on 6th April 2014, 18:05

    Driver of the weekend is gonna be a tough one though.

  13. Yoshitsune (@yobo01) said on 6th April 2014, 18:06

    What a race. One of the best dry races in the last few years.

  14. Dimitris 1395 (@dimitris-1395) said on 6th April 2014, 18:07

    Absolutely astonishing race. Mercedes cars were a lot faster but the battle they had it was one of the best I’ve ever seen.
    Hamilton, Rosberg, Perez, Ricciardo all had excellent races.
    I can say if the gap to Mercedes closes, I will adore the new era of F1. There are much more to come. Let’s wait and see!

  15. Ron (@rcorporon) said on 6th April 2014, 18:07

    Great race! I gave it 8/10 mostly due to the Merc dominance leaving little question as to which team would win, but overall simply awesome.
