    8/10 – good race. Unfortunately no one could get even close to Merc and ROS was too cool to let HAM anywhere near a chance.

    6. Was expecting much more. Was tense for the first 20 laps, but then got set on rails pretty much… Also, the broadcast… we haven’t seen much of what was happening further down the field. Or was it because nothing was happening?

    7/10, that 1.9s extra time in the pits for HAM vs ROS cost us an interesting finale over the latter laps!

      It is really disappointing to see slower pit stops for Lewis. I feel Merc wants to give more advantage to Nico. Sick team :(

      • Patrick (@paeschli) said on 22nd June 2014, 14:48

        They seem very consistent in making a slower pit stop when Hamilton comes in.

        • @alokin and @paeschli Do you people really believe that Mercedes on purpose give Hamilton slower pitstops?

          Crazy (young) folk, them Hamilton fans.

            I don’t think its the team doing it on purpose. Maybe its how Hamilton parks the car. Rosberg seems to come in much faster and the crew seem to really throw things at the car. Hamilton’s stops seem lethargic the crew place the wheels on much more and he pulls to a stop much slower. Its really something they need to work on as its happens in a few races now and when they are battling for every 10th on track, to lose two seconds in the pits is costing Hamilton.

            It is not once, it has been observed that it is only Lewis gets slower pit stops. why can’t they work on it and solve it. when Nico was getting poor start they took Lewis’s help to solve it. If they think it is something car positioning then they should work together and solve it and give fair opportunity to both.

            @xtwl, it does seem to consistently happen to Hamilton though, I am wondering if higher temperatures in the brakes and hubs is making wheel removal more difficult.

        As a Hamilton fan getting frustrated with his luck this year (as in my view he should be BLITZING this), I really cannot understand this crazy talk. Can you recall just ONE race ago, Rosberg delayed at his second stop by one second which contributed to Hamilton jumping him? It was wasted anyway because his car died that same lap, but still. The picking and choosing of events to back up a theory whilst ignoring everything else that doesn’t back up the same theory is not a good statistical analysis.

    7. Solid race but predictable result, although after a lot of action.

  5. Mcquiz (@mcquiz) said on 22nd June 2014, 14:49

    5/10, I slept through the last 30 laps.

  6. Lars (@lars) said on 22nd June 2014, 14:50

    8/10 Great race track. Good race by Rosberg, Hamilton, Alonso, Perez and Magnussen. Now that he has gotten a Little bit of F1 experience all rookie Kevin Magnussen needs is a fast car and he will in top in most races.

  7. Osvaldas31 (@osvaldas31) said on 22nd June 2014, 14:52

    5/10. Boring race and I almost fell asleep in the middle of it. Expectations very high after yesterday’s qualifying, but they didn’t materialize. Familiar faces on the podium (except for Bottas), not much action on track, because Mercedes were playing waiting game to get past Williams and latter were just trying to collect their points. Another failure for Vettel, I’m starting to feel very sorry for him. And finally, a few champions fighting (they didn’t really) for the last point (what a shame).

    great 1st lap from lewis.. from then on, nothing but strategy… to be honest, pretty boring race… Merc didn’t allow their drivers to race until the very last lap.. that take away the show.. Canada was intense .. compared to that its nugget of Canada…i guess this season is going to be boring with more and more Merc team orders (not to mention well in their terms boring race management)… unless some hell broke lose at Merc

  9. craig-o (@craig-o) said on 22nd June 2014, 14:57

    Good, solid 7. Great racing through until the end but lacked a bit of drama.

  10. DeVante said on 22nd June 2014, 14:58

    Keith, could you post the Merc pit stops, of both drivers, since the begining of this current Championship?

  11. Rigi (@rigi) said on 22nd June 2014, 14:58

    decent, but after canada it was hard for this to get a good rating.

  12. Uzair Syed (@ultimateuzair) said on 22nd June 2014, 15:02

    A bit of a dull race. Mercedes one-two as usual. 7/10.

  13. Sujeeth (@sjct83) said on 22nd June 2014, 15:04

    8 lovely track nice atmosphere rd the circuit and DOTW perez

  14. spoutnik (@spoutnik) said on 22nd June 2014, 15:04

    Gave it a 6, mainly for the Williams.
    The race somehow failed to provide real excitement. The best overtake goes to Ricciardo who managed to pass a Mercedes engine driven by Hulkenberg, that was wheel to wheel action. But definitely the fuel management does not produce any good, everyone slowing down at the end of the race, what a nonsense.

    • Lari (@lari) said on 22nd June 2014, 15:31

      Absolutely! That overtake by Ricciardo was amazing! When they showed it in replay from the incar camera of Ricciardo, it was several corners of neck and neck driving. Great balls of fire on RIC :)

  15. Cuesta (@cuesta) said on 22nd June 2014, 15:07

    I gave it a 5. Meh. Looked promising but lasted two laps.
    And on top of that, no drama between the two cars till the last three.
