  1. Great race ! Daniel Ricciardo win again, and nice for Rosberg get more points ahead !
    Also nice to see Alonso being pass , after all great to see Hamilton out ! Ha ! Ha !

  2. Quite a race. 7/10

  3. I’ll say this about the Hamilton/Rosberg contact.

    In the GP2/GP3 races this weekend drivers have done exactly the same thing as Rosberg did by trying round the outside, However the car on the inside in every case left enough room for there not to be any contact.

    Yeah Lewis was infront but he wasn’t actually on the racing line, He intentionally let the car drift half a car width wider than normal & thats where the contact occurred.

    There’s been plenty of overtaking round the outside of les combes this weekend.

    1. ROS was not on the outside when the contact was made, he failed to pass on the outside of the righthander but continued to stick his nose into the inside of the lelfthander.

  4. I liked it, but wasn´t overly excited (except for the 4-wide moment at Kemmel). So a 7/10.

  5. I think I’m probably getting used to ricciardo wins now but still I rate it a solid 8/10

  6. 9/10. It’s not 10 because of the terrible luck that Vettel and Hamilton and Alonso had today.

      Vettel start ahead of Ricciardo and he did not have a car problem

      1. unlucky to have RIC as a teammate ?

    Slow-burn tension and brief lull periods punctuated by sustained bursts of high energy, especially in those amazing closing laps. 8/10.

  8. I gave it an 8. There’s something that bothers me, people will vote 1 or 2 just because their favorite driver drew the short straw.

    By the way, Mercedes (and Rosberg) snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. Seriously, they were over 2s faster than everyone in the wet.

    1. And that is why Nikki and Toto are angry.

  9. great race. so far i’ve noticed a few comments explaining how they thought the race was bad because of the rosberg-hamilton incident. to everyone saying this: it’s obvious you’re a hamilton fan, but it’s not justified to rate the race low because of an incident like this. even if it wasn’t a racing incident (which it was in my opinion) you shouldn’t gve it a low rating because this was a fantastic race and the only reason you could say it wasn’t is if you’re a biased hamilton or massa fan.

    gave it a 9/10, great performances throughout the top ten. i was very impressed with magnussens defensive skills, hard but fair. i said i’ll give my driver of the weekend vote to bottas, but magnussen got me thinking. i’ll sleep over it and decide tomorrow.

  10. 8/9. Good battles, but sadly not from the front because Daniel was just on a league of his own.
    I don’t think Rosberg should have been boo’d. He still drove a hard race and racing through the field doing some good overtakes, and most importantly he did not give up like Lewis did. It seems like today Lewis completely lost confidence. His performance was not nearly as well as Hungary and Germany where he was easily able to fight from the back. Stop complaining and make the best of the situation. To be champion, you CANNOT give up.
    Great race from Kimi and Bottas as well.

  11. Amazing race, action packed, intrigue.. Nearly voted a 7 because of the abysmal FOM footage. Narly voted an 8 because my favorite drivers didn’t do too well. Nearly voted a 9 because I felt that was it. Went with a 10 just because I’m madly in love with F1 (on track) this season.

  12. 10/10 for me.

    Ric wins
    Vet does well
    Kimi does great
    Ham whines like a baby and destroys his car in a fit of rage
    Bott gets another podium

    What more could we ask for?

    1. A can of Monster…

  13. It had everything whether you like the outcome or don’t it has to be either a 9 or a 10.

  14. Iceman is Back!! :) truly king of spa is appropriate name for him..hope there’s more to come from the iceman..wud have loved hearing the noise of fans when he got the trophy..great race by ricciardo

    Good race action wise, bad race results wise. Rosberg takes out Hamilton and the gap is up to 29 points bcos of it, Force India have a bad race due to what they had in qually yesterday. Annoyed

  16. What if we all stopped complaining about the fact 1 driver hit another driver? Race reviews shouldn’t be overshadowed by 1 small piece of contact. How much slack did Alonso get when he hit Vettel at La Source, or even when Rosberg had a Gearbox failure at Silverstone which dramatically affected people’s scores?
    There are 22 drivers and car on track guys, not 2.

    1. Teamates collide in a tight battle for the championship… I’m guessing that’s probably more of a talking point at the moment.

  17. Great battle for 6 place and The reason to love F1. Great defensive driving by K Magnussen and just within The rules – if this kind of driving is penalised it will become boring to watch F1 and become a bureaucratic battle instead.

  18. Full of great hustles throughout the race, great drives from Kimi and Dan and Bottas, pleased to Bottas on the podium again

  19. 9/10. Still would’ve LLIIKKEEDDDDD to see vettel win, though.

  20. I would like to point out there is no way you can say ‘Nico cost Lewis a win’. All you can is is he lost a certain 18 points. Whether due to Nico or not is not my point.
