    Go on Danny Ric! Superb job, he has been top class all season so far. Vettel must be kicking himself privately, Ricciardo got the move done past Perez where Seb couldn’t earlier in the race. Fair play to him though, he was very congratulatory in parc ferme to Ricciardo. I gave it a 9 only because I think Bahrain was slightly better and I gave that a 10.

      Ricciardo got the move done past Perez where Seb couldn’t earlier in the race.

      Vettel didn’t have the benefit of Perez’s brakes starting to fail.

      Red Bull gifted Ricciardo that race by giving Vettel an odd strategy & pitting him earlier than they needed to which left him in traffic.

      Clearly Red Bull are favoring the new guy…. sarcasm ;)

        True Ricciardo had the good fortune that Perez’s brakes were going. It’s not really a criticism of Vettel, the Red Bull clearly doesn’t have the speed of the Force India down the straight. It’s just that time stuck behind Checo gave Ricciardo the track position. Without it that could quite easily have been Vettel overtaking Rosberg at the end.

    • safeeuropeanhome (@debaser91) said on 8th June 2014, 21:01

      Sorry getting confused, it was Hulkenberg Vettel was stuck behind for a long time.

    • TMF (@tmf42) said on 8th June 2014, 21:24

      @debaser91 neither one could overtake on his own merit, only Perez’ failing breaks and old tires enabled both to overtake. The only thing he could kick himself a bit is RBRs strategy which was a bit sub-optimal for both.

    10/10. Can’t ask for anything more

    10/10 from a Hamilton fan.


    I feel super sorry for Pérez though. He had a good handful of points taken from him unfortunately.

    10/10! Unfortunate for Hamilton, but it had everything. Crashes, safety cars, overtaking, non Mercedes AMG winner!
    Dissapointing from Mercedes, let their drivers down. Rosberg got so lucky by finishing 2nd.

    As a Vettel fan I find this pretty painful, getting stuck behind Hülkenberg really ruined it for him and when he lost out to Ricciardo at the pitstops it was game over… but otherwise 10/10

    • Yoshisune (@yobo01) said on 8th June 2014, 22:23

      Yeah, he built a very healthy gap to the Williams and Ricciardo in the first stint. Clearly he was fast and he could have easily won if something had worked out differently.
      But, you know, ifs and buts don’t matter, Hulkenberg did an awesome job, as always, in defending, as did Perez, before the problems with his brakes. Ricciardo was at the right place at the right time and he took some risks, so I think he deserves it.

    10/10 As you Brits say, a real cracker of a race. At first the ROS HAM rivalry, then the midfield battles, then the Merc problems, then Williams with big gains, then Ricciardo, then Force India resurgent, then all the attrition, and finally the last 10 laps with an awesome battle for the top 5. Sad for Massa and Perez though. Would have like to see either on the podium instead of Red Bull.

  7. Wow, so pleased we got that live! Will go 9/10, just because of that last crash meant that it didn’t end how it felt it should, but if there was a 9.5 I would have put it! Not bad for milkcarts! Race of the year for me!

  8. bharat (@bharat141) said on 8th June 2014, 20:52

    First race after Brazil 2012, German national anthem isn’t played on the podium. So I give it a 10/10

  9. EstF1 (@estf1) said on 8th June 2014, 20:54

    9/10 for me because of Kimi and Valtteri finishing low. But otherwise an awesome race!

  10. f199player (@f199player) said on 8th June 2014, 20:55

    Amazing first we fought Rosberg would win then Hamilton, Massa then Perez and out of nowhere Ricciardo comes and wins it

  11. Max Jacobson (@vettel1) said on 8th June 2014, 20:56

    I’m not going to vote on this right now, as I’m slightly irked by Red Bull’s less-than-favourable strategy for Vettel. Good race, but better than Bahrain? No, it took too long to develop and overtaking was strangely almost too difficult.

    • Andre Furtado (@f1andy83) said on 8th June 2014, 21:01

      Agreed. Red bull is really irking me by giving ric better strategies. Vettel was faster than ric all weekend and yet no radio messages to get him by. This whole affair is sour.

    • mickey18 (@mickey18) said on 9th June 2014, 6:25

      Don’t think seb or his fans have anything to be disappointed about. Always a good thing for a team to have two race winners. Especially red bull, where seb and Daniel are part racing drivers, part marketing tools. In truth the way Vettel is carrying himself this year is cementing his reputation with me more then another yet another win would.

  12. Like the rest of the Aussie’s here it was tough to get up at 4am (considering I’m now leaving to go and work a double shift) but it was well worth it!

  13. Nick (@npf1) said on 8th June 2014, 20:57

    I need to lay down, then come back to vote 10/10. First 15 laps were meh, but after that things got going and my word, that ending..

  14. Saints (@saints) said on 8th June 2014, 20:58

    Dream race, easy 10
