    Best Driver: Petrov. Amazing start and kept his head.

    Worst Driver: Barrichello. Fought a losing battle with turn 3 all weekend. Insane assault on Rosberg, shame as the Williams looked quick.

    Best Team: Red Bull. Let the KERS non-story develop nicely!

    Worst Team: Hispania, how long do they need to get ready?!

    Best Overtake: none stood out but Alonso made some good ones early on.

    Best Funny-moment: Coulthard vs Jordan: DC pointing out there weren’t any cars in the Red Bull garage

    Most Surprising Result: Petrov 11 places ahead of Heidfeld

    Least Surprising Result: Vettel winning

    Special Mention to: Perez

    Race Rating: 7/10

    Best BBC commentator/presenter: Well impressed with Brundle but gonna give this to David Coulthard on his birthday. Sharp-eyed and more insightful than I expected, did a fine job winding Eddie Jordan up, and handled his 40th celebrations on live TV well.

    Worst BBC commentator/presenter: Eddie Jordan

    Best Commentary moment: Between 99% and 100%, how much was that Barrichello’s fault?

    Overall BBC coverage rating: 8/10

    Best Driver: You coud make a case for Vettel, Hamilton, alonso and Perez but i will go with Petrov. Smashed Heidfeld (more NH being rubbish this weekend but still). Made a good start after a good qualy, solid pace and kept the tyres well and even when it looked like alonso could’ve got him he was able to respond.

    Worst Driver: Heidfeld. See Petrov basically. Traffic didn’t help in Q1 but he should’ve got the car higher up than that and was miles off the pace. (last of the ‘established teams’)

    Best Team: Rewd Bull produced a corking car (well at least in Vettels hands) and a lightning 3.6s stop for vettel.

    Worst Team: HRT. Well welll well…

    Best Overtake:

    Best Funny-moment: Seb chucking DCs cake all over him on the BBC forum

    Most Surprising Result: Petrov

    Least Surprising Result: Vettel

    Special Mention to: di Resta, point on debut (if aided by other factors).

    Race Rating: 8/10. Enough overtaking, a couple of talking points and an intriguing result and variable strategies.

    Best BBC commentator/presenter: Brundle

    Worst BBC commentator/presenter: EJ (mainly for his attempts at trucking)

    Best Commentary moment: nothing stands out

    Overall BBC coverage rating: 8/10

    Best Driver: Petrov

    Worst Driver: Heidfeld

    Best Team: Nobody reached their full potential. Mclaren did better than expected I guess, but they mucked up strategy. I would have said Sauber but they never prepped race legal cars.

    Worst Teams: HRT and Merc

    Best Overtake: Button on Massa – ARW on main straight – I watched without blinking

    to lap after lap to see what it would be like – then it happened!! Only good because it was 1st so called ARW pass.

    Best Funny-moment: DC in RedBull garage, Vettel was ripping him about being 40, and swore on TV without anyone correcting him, DC drunk the champers with a ‘we’re on TV but sod it, I’m already covered in cake anyway’ attitude.

    Most Surprising Result: Petrov Podium and Mclaren Podium.

    Least Surprising Result: Vettel win and HRT DNS.

    Special Mention to: Sergio Perez, unlucky with DQ but showed promise

    Race Rating: 7/10
