  1. 10/10 for me
    Action from start to finish
    Best race I’ve seen in years

    Brilliant race feel bad for Alonso and the McLaren drivers though

  3. 9/10, really a great race from start to finish. There were so many battles going on that I was sure we are missing something else by focusing on one battle.

  4. Ooof, easily and by far a 10 from me. I have seen races and I have seen battles, but not this many and this clean I might add. There were fights all the way down the grid, but the Hamilton-Rosberg one overshadowed them all. And it was especially fantastic to watch Williams and FI really driving the Ferrari’s and Red Bulls hard. Towards the end I thought I’d have a heart attack with the Ricciardo – Perez finish, and my hands were shaking for a good 10 minutes afterwords.

  5. I gave it a 10; perhaps there could have been even more fighting for the lead, but this is F1 and I think even having a dominant team that finally shows just how fast they are while fighting a battle between the two drivers for the lead, then behind that a great fight for all positions, is just about the best it can offer. And it didn’t even need the SC to be a great race, though that made it a stunner.

  6. 10 out of 10.

    Brilliant race. . Best I’ve seen in a long time!
    Lewis, what a racer!!
    This will definitely silence his detractors.

  7. Absolutely fantastic racing! 10/10!!!

    So much action and no team orders, all the teams fighting from wire to wire. If they’d just suspend Maldanado, I’d call this a perfect weekend.

  8. 9/10 Not a fan of the dirty from Hamilton that commentators thought to be “friendly”.
    Pushing someone off the track is not a valid defensive move. Also my heart broke when I saw Mercedes pulling away around 2.5 seconds per lap, that’s worse domination than we had in 2004.

    1. dirty driving*

      1. @mcquiz Huh every driver ahead was doing same thing if your on inside you run wide next turn. You just hurt Nico lost. Lol imagine Ham on softs do you think he would lose that race how manytimes did Nico overtake and outbrake himself.

    2. Agreed. Just imagine if there was another car fighting Lewis and Nico at the end

    3. @mcquiz There was no “dirty driving” from Hamilton at all – it was all completely legal and fair. The stewards didn’t get involved and they had no reason to.

  9. 9. It was one of the best races I’ve seen in a while.

    I would have given it a 10 if there was one more driver / team that could mix it up with the Mercs.

    But without a doubt the best race I’ve seen in a while. Really enjoyed it

  10. I gave a rate 9 for Bahrain race. That was the race , I was waiting for. As a Ferrari fan, that was not the performance I hoped for, but let’s hope that the squared will soon recover , and fight for better positions.

  11. 10!!
    Who was criticising F1 for being really boring, again? :P

  12. 8/10
    I discovered I like intra-team battles more than extra-team battles. It was great to see the Mercedes, Force India and Williams duos battling between each other, though the Safety Car (gladly) helped.

    We had everything in this race. Wheel to wheel racing, overtaking, mistakes, fight for the lead, different strategies… For God’s sake, we even had a car spinning in the air. What the heck can you ask for more.

  14. That’s a little piece of what F1 should be.

  15. 10/10 Incredible race all around with battles almost everywhere on the grid. I don’t think any team has a clear number 1 driver which should make these battles between teammates even more exciting. I just hope that the grid can catch up to Mercedes so we don’t have a 30 second gap between 2nd and 3rd every race.

  16. 9/10 from me. Would have been 10/10 but the FIA rules regarding how long the safety car stays out was the only (LONG) spanner in the works! Awesome race apart from that :)

  17. 10/10 great race and it just shows how much of a great driver Lewis is and that Hamilton is the better driver than Rosberg. good to see Chilton finish another race and finish in 13th giving them 10th in the constructors again.

  18. 8/10
    A better start would have made 9/10
    And other cars succesfully chasing the Mercs would have made it 10/10
    In fact, a Villeneuve vs Arnoux finish would hace made it 11/10…

    1. A better start for who?

      1. For everybody, except Massa.
        It was a emotionless start…

  19. I gave this race an 8 because there was too much worrying about Ham Ros battle at the end and it’s not good for my health )
