    I selected 4/10, nothing really unexpected. ALO and Ferrari were probably the only surprise, however, it was for 3rd place….

    Decent but not as interesting. But ran away with the race but pretty much everyone behind him had a good race. Nico is really dissatisfied with his result. Hope this rivalry lasts throughout the season.

    Was quite an interesting race. Driver quote of the year goes to Vettel “What tyres is he on?” Then “Bad Luck”

    5/10 for a really forgettable race. Absolutely no excitement :(
    Big congrats to HAM,ALO,RIC and Force India as well. Still the best Merc powered customer team!

    not a very good race. just simply predictable and boring. 4/10

    Well, well…because there were no safety car in this Chinese GP, we had a 5 point race. Everyone voted 9 and 10 for the last race, putting aside the safety car factor, and now they have to put the feet back on the ground, because this is the reality. So, no surprise in a suffering 5 point race.

    Congrats to Alonso, Ricciardo, Hulk and Kvyat. Frustrating race for Nico, Vettel, the Maclaren and the Williams. I’m probably going to watch a good game of curling now and hope to have some fun this morning…

    Really dreary procession. Massa’s pit stop was the highlight for me. Almost fell asleep toward the end. Awful.

    There’s really nothing much more to say about this race apart from this: 5/10.

    Alonso-2012 version. He almost tried to figt with Mercedes. It was great to see.
    Kimi is good too: without any settings for a race he was able to finish in top 10.
    Hulk is definitely incredible.
    Daniil is better then Vergne.
    Willims should think more about its pilots. They are terrible. So many points were thrown away. Feel sorry for this team.

      Alonso drove into Massa and Rosberg drove into Bottas. Not sure how terrible the Williams drivers are, but they have terrible luck.

      • Corrado (@corrado-dub) said on 20th April 2014, 10:55

        Massa is more WHOOOOHOOOO(= some sort of crazy) than ALO, obviously. Massa had a fantastic start indeed, but he moved to the sides so much, like there was a 1-1 fight. Massa simply forgot there he is surrounded by cars, so he must pay attention too, although faster. Alonso barely moved to the left.

        • Adam Hardwick (@fluxsource) said on 20th April 2014, 13:37

          @corrado-dub To fair, I saw that large move as trying to avoid a collision with a slow RIC – that gap was vanishing at a rapid rate. There was enough room between ALO and RIC, but once ALO starting squeezing the space there was nowhere to go. It’s lucky he wasn’t pushed into RIC as well.

          Anyone know what was likely to have happened if he had been sandwiched between two cars?

      • Slava (@slava) said on 20th April 2014, 11:10

        to juan fanger: It was a racing incident and not Alonso’s or Rosberg’s fault. And two – Williams drivers are terrible.

    • @slava, How can you say that Kvyat is better than Vergne? He has just raced 4 Gps at this level. Is not fair to compared the two at this point. And it’s not fair to say that williams pilots are terrible. However, you may start by the car. Is the Williams car so competitive as was said in the beginning on this championship?

  10. Hamilfan (@hamilfan) said on 20th April 2014, 10:05

    6/10 . Could have been better had Alonso not nudged Massa in the start .

  11. A.D. (@aks-das) said on 20th April 2014, 10:05

    hated RBR for the team orders. wanted to vote 5, but cause i am a hamilton fan so 6 it is.

  12. Illusive (@illusive) said on 20th April 2014, 10:06

    Average race, its like 2013 all again only this time HAM dominating.

  13. Chris (@tophercheese21) said on 20th April 2014, 10:09

    Gave it 4.

    Wasn’t a terribly exciting race. However, it wasn’t completely boring considering this Shanghai circuit just isn’t conducive to on the limit wheel-to-wheel racing.

    The mid-field was a lot more spread out than I expected it to be which meant we got hardly any battles from them.

    The most exciting parts were the brief Alonso-Vettel battle, and the scrap between the two red bulls. Other than that, not a whole heap happene.

    Kudos to:
    - Ricciardo for putting another thorough beating on Vettel yet again.
    - Rosberg for getting P2 despite a pretty poor race overall.
    - Alonso for snagging a podium despite the car being pretty poor.
    - Hamilton for just dominating with ease. Yeaaaaaaahhhh!!
