  1. Best Race so far!

  2. Awesome race, 9/10. I wanted to give it a 10, and I would’ve if the race wasn’t decided with a DRS pass, but still it was incredible. A great drive by Ricciardo, Rosberg did very well to hang on to a podium and I feel awful for Massa and Checo, both drove well, barring the final lap crash. It’ll be interesting to see what the stewards say about it.

    This season is an absolute cracker!

    1. Oh and an honourable mention to Vettel for avoiding the spinning Massa.

  3. This was one of the most entertaining races in a while. Canadian GP easily deserves a 10/10.

  4. 1 – 1% ??? (out of 135 voters, assuming it got 1 vote)

    i dare you to stand up and show yourself, whoever gave it a 1! that person must be mad!

    i full on gave it a 10, but i’d like to give it 12 if i could, because it was at least two points better than bahrain.

    1. It was Chilton. He failed to finish for the first time. You should feel sorry for him :P

  5. 9/10. Would have given a perfect score if it wasn’t for the abysmal TV directing again. “Something is happening on the track, let’s show the reaction from the crowd/mechanics. Oh, and it’s over, back to normal shots of cars going round.”

    1. Overtake on the pit straight, let’s show a car coming out of the pits, zoooooom in!

    2. Or twice at the hairpin: Car going for a potentially over-ambitious pass, but halfway-through the move, pan the cameras to the fans that watch in awe whatever is happening! Always nice to keep things a bit of a mystery.

  6. 10/10

    Contained almost everything we need in a race! Teammate battle, drama, different strategy, accident and a new winner!

    It’s midnight here, but I’m just too excited to fall asleep after watching it.

  7. Might have been the best dry race I’ve ever seen. An easy 10.

  8. 9/10. All the exciting parts were made exciting mostly by cars being wounded. Ricciardo easily sailed by Rosberg to win the race, for example — not much of a wheel to wheel battle.

    Still, a very dramatic and entertaining race.

  9. 10/10
    I would prefer a Perez win, but i am happy for Ricciardo first win

  10. 10/10 for me.

    The final 20 laps was a thriller where we might not expect since 2014 started.

    Having said that, Ricciardo capitalised on Perez resting his electical unit taking that place and went on to win. Vettel didn’t had that luck though.

    A bit of botch and weird pitstop for both the Redbull drivers.

    Mercedes powered car got beaten by Renault powered car is history making in 2014, where Renault had issues like overheating, lack of power, problems all over MGU coming from winter testing. Like what Vettel said: “Credits to Renault for making a good recovery and to be able to enjoy the top step here in Montreal is really a big step forward. More to come.”

    1. Resetting the electrical unit*

  11. One of the most thrilling races for a looong time.

    Nico upping his race-craft at each GP now, but Lewis must be gutted to have mechanical failure again. Lewis may be a bit quicker and have raw pace, but I just don’t think he’ll hold everything together for the entire season.

    But, man, this race had so much going on. I hope Felipe and Checo are OK after those heavy shunts, bitter, bitter disappointment for Williams there with two laps to go. As for Ricciardo, he’s such a nice guy and driving neat and tidy. Good on him and there will be more from the smiley aussie, that’s for sure!

    I bet Mr. Webber shed a tear of pride this morning… :)

  12. Are we sure someone wasn’t directing this race from behind the scenes, with a screenplay in their hand? Because it sure looked like it.
    To me this was somewhat of an Interlagos 2012 but dry and with a bit more oomph. One of this season’s classics for sure.

    Sure, if we’re to look deeper into it it might have lacked a bit more overtaking as it would have been massively entertaining to watch Rosberg, Vettel, Ricciardo, Perez and Massa scramble equally and constantly for the win, but that would have ultimately taken some of the drama out of it. Fair trade after all, imho.

    Clearly, 10!

  13. Mercedes must now win every race to have a higher percentage of wins in one season than ’88 McLaren.

  14. I only give a 9 to those handful of races, which, I think in my lifetime will ever have the chance for one of them to become a 10… And this was a 9. :)

  15. It killed me to see Lewis have bad luck yet again, but my God, what a race!!! Definitely a 10 out of 10….maybe an 11. This is what Formula 1 is supposed to be so I want to see all the complainers give it a rest for a few weeks.


  16. It is JUST ME, or the TV director at the generating network was terrifyingly BAD??
    Was a guy/woman directly from the chess department put in charge of generating the signal of a F1 race?
    It was the worst transmission I’ve seen in a long, long time.

  17. I don’t think we could’ve asked for much more. The fall of the dominant force, a surprise winner and race-long excitement. Let’s not forget that before Perez and Massa collided the top 5 were within 3 seconds of the leader. How often do we see that? Simply amazing. 10/10

  18. 9.. -1 for Rosberg being a lucky barstool. C’mon Lewis!

  19. Fascinating race, left me speechless at the end such was the drama and excitement. Defining race for Rosberg’s season in that not only did Lewis DNF but he got his car home in the points when it seemed inevitable he would DNF himself. 10/10

  20. 8/10 for me.
    Absolutely brilliant race, but it wasn’t perfect.
    Massively happy for Daniel, he deserved that no doubt, Mercedes would have destroyed the field without their failure, but that’s the way it was, I can’t take anything from him, well deserved.
    Regarding Mercedes, I feel the chicane cut from Rosberg should have merited a punishment, however, a warning was suffice, he made a mistake, it happens.
    What I simply cannot get over is Rosberg’s luck, he has gotten away with so much this year, as well as this race.
    Lewis has simply had no luck, I can’t help but feel bias aside that with any sort of luck, he’d have every race won.
    People who say Rosberg should get preference after 7 rounds are being ludicrous though, 4 straight wins from Lewis, something he has achieved before would put him in the lead again, Rosberg must be looking at a DNF soon as well, it’s far from over.
    Sebastian Vettel had no luck whatsoever in 2010, remember how many DNF’s and issues he has during that season and still won it? I still genuinely believe that Lewis will win this.
