  1. The only time I’m that close to the edge of the seat during an F1 race usually is when championships are decided. Maybe not the best race out of the 900 but surely one of the best for a long time. 10/10!

  2. Great!

    Now can we stop with the engine noise debate and other attempts to artificially “spice things up”?

  3. very rare .. fantastic race.. 10

  4. I think this one goes to 11!

  5. 1% for 1 Point? What is wrong with you?

  6. After this FANTASTIC FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX, please stop showing us the likes of Luca di Montezemolo, Adrian Newey and other frustrated guys… Let Ferrari build a better car and power unit and Renault also built a better power unit. The rules are the same for everybody

    Listen to Ron Dennis, Paddy Lowe, Toto Wolff, Pat Symonds. Let the others learn and improve their packages.

    Fantastic job for Mercedes – Great race Lewis and Nico !!!

      +1 mate.
      merecedes powered taxies r faster than ferrari .

  7. I’m a fool. I’ve spent 40 years following F1, I should’ve been following this taxi cab racing.


  8. That was really a very brilliant race. Gripping from the word go. A BIG win for Lewis. Bahrain is a track where Nico has a measure on Lewis and it was not to be today.

    The W05 is in a class of its own. But so long as the Merc boffins let them race, I have no complaints.

  9. Amazing race. Battles all along, epic battle for the lead, and we witnessed one of the best drives from Hamilton.
    Ricciardo was brilliant too, and Perez, what a race from him, kind of shuting up his critics.

  10. 9

    What a timing for this race to come. Everyone was saying how boring current F1 has become and here you go, bang on the target and providing a very entertaining race after really long time. There were battles all round the places- lead, middle pack, back runners. Great drive from Lewis and Perez.
    Ricciardo again doing very good coming from middle of pack and same goes for Hulk.

    Bit disappointed with Williams and Ferrari’s result . Expected more from both teams.

  11. 10 for me Nico would not have even had a chance without safety car if hecoulnt do it when right behind Ham. How would he gain 9 seconds then pass. Nico is so cocky “i will win next race, i was fastest car, im leading WC” Yeh why are you leading Nico i wonder. Maybe becuase your temmate retired.

  12. I struggle to remember the last time we had a close fight for the lead going into the closing stages of a Grand Prix. Either way this race and race weekend in all has set the benchmark for; A) What sort of pace these 2014 cars (the fastest at least) are capable of compared to last years so-much-downforce-we’re-glued-to-the-track cars; and B) That even with such fuel restrictions close and competitive racing is possible. Although whether it’s truly competitive is debatable.

    1. @royal-spark
      Satsuki! I approve!

      I am certainly glad to see that Fuel isn’t such a big factor so far.
      Of course it’s an element to the race, and I’m glad that it is… But it’s good to see that it’s not defining the quality of the racing like the tyres were last year.

      1. Aaaand, as soon as I say that, you change profile pic to Ryūko :P

  13. The last race I gave a 10 was Brazil 2012.

    Today was a 10. It had everything except rain, and is a fantastic advertisement for Formula 1 2014.

  14. 10 for me. Who cares if Merc are two seconds quicker if there are two of them and they are allowed to fight? Ferrari and Red Bull should keep quiet and concentrate on their car issues – they are not far away from the non-works Merc runners and the racing is really close. Really glad that Gutierrez is Ok – a flip is really scary, but how would he be if Maldonado’s nose was at cockpit edge height like last year?

  15. by far a great race. team mate on team mate…what would their bosses say? haha

  16. 9/10 – It was so thrilling that I ate so much midnight snack. Let’s see: eggs, bacon, biscuits, wedges, 2 cups of tea..

  17. 10/10

    The battles from the begging till the end,the lighting, team spirit , the atmosphere and the safety car …. All amazing.

  18. 9/10 Nothing is perfect but this race was top notch stuff, hope to see more in the coming races.

    So who still thinks the new regs are stupid?

  19. What an incredible, for the first time this season drivers seemed willing to go for it. Unfortunately Maldonado’s punt brought an end to an interesting 2-stop versus 3-stop battle, but boy did it spice things up!

    *usual complaint about DRS*

    In the end I gave it a 9/10, not the perfect 10/10 because I felt that the FOM tried really hard to make the strategy impossible to understand, with lack of tyre stops and complicated graphics and everything! But other than that, a truly sensational race, possibly the best since Canada ’11.

    1. @andae23 I felt DRS helped spice it up even further! The 2012 and 2013 races were also really good partly due to DRS, it allowed drivers to come back at one another and all sorts!

      1. @craig-o Meh. The racing just doesn’t need it, I mean, just look at that GP2 race from earlier today!

  20. 10/10. Absolutely mega. I will never forget the following 5 races:
    2011 Canadian Grand Prix
    2012 European Grand Prix
    2012 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix
    2012 Brazilian Grand Prix
    2014 Bahrain Grand Prix
