    Best Driver: JB last to first, LAST TO FIRST, a fair chunck of the race gone!

    Worst Driver: Sutil whatever, Hamilton probably had the car to win, Buttons pace was incredible, I’d say a lot of that was the McLaren set up

    Best Team: Redbull for their car, BUT, McLaren gambled and Buttons awe inspiring pace, on tyres slightly older then Vettel’s showed how right they got this call.

    Worst Team: Force India, nothing wrong with the team, but both drivers cocked it up for themselves, lucky no one was looking huh Paul?

    Best Overtake: Schumi double strike! Cheeky old man. You always know it’s a great race when there are double overtakes going on.

    Best Funny-moment: All the drivers, All the crowd, Both commentators, me ma girlfriend and sister shouting at the telly, GET ON WITH IT! TRACKS CLEARLY DRY!

    Most Surprising Result: Schumi I guess, very sad he didn’t get to taste champagne

    Least Surprising Result: Vettel cocks up badly on the last lap, an yet the fates have aligned yet again througout that race, only looses 7 points.

    Race Rating: 9/10

    Best BBC commentator/presenter: Brundle

    Worst BBC commentator/presenter: EJ man talks only rubbish these days, liked him for the first two BBC seasons, don’t like him anymore.

    Best Commentary moment: Can’t remember too intense a finish

    BBC Coverage rating: Only watch the race these days, caught some of EJ in the pre-show, went back to revision/10

    Best Driver: Button

    Worst Driver: Hamilton

    Best Team: er, no-one stood out…Hispania! Good result for them.

    Worst Team: Ferrari. Couldn’t keep up with leaders; seemed to get caught on wrong tyres; silly mistakes from both drivers

    Best Overtake: Schumacher on Kobayashi and Massa

    Best Funny-moment: nervous laughter, rather than LOL, at the marshal falling over while picking the bits of Heidfeld’s wing up

    Most Surprising Result: Button, awesome speed late in the race

    Least Surprising Result: early bath for Hamilton – becoming a bit predictable…

    Special Mention to: Schumacher for a great fighting drive without the car advantage.

    Race Rating: 8/10. Would’ve been higher but too much health & safety.

    Best BBC commentator/presenter: Brundle, another great job filling a long wait entertainingly.

    Worst BBC commentator/presenter: Eddie Jordan, more irrelevant rants than ever.

    Best Commentary moment: Coulthard on about the cameraman falling over in front of Rihanna, “trying to get a cheap shot”… and Brundle “almonds and cream!” (eh?)

    BBC Coverage rating: 9/10 – way better than usual Sunday evening telly!

    Best Driver: Michael Schumacher

    Worst Driver: Lewis Hamilton

    Best Team: Red Bull

    Worst Team: er don’t really know

    Best Overtake: Schumacher on Massa and Kobayashi

    Most Surprising Result: Schumacher doing so well

    Least Surprising Result: DRS was disgusting and far too powerful

    Special Mention to: Massa’s excellent quali and opening phase of the race, but he lost it a bit as the race wore on

    Race Rating: 6/10 – Far too much SC, but even if you ignore that I was left feeling really cold by how DRS robbed us a genuine fight for the podium spots, Schumacher had no chance, as with Kobayashi on the line. It felt fake. Still an epic last lap though, and thank god it wasn’t decided on a DRS pass.

    Best BBC commentator/presenter: DC

    Worst BBC commentator/presenter: Jake

    Best Commentary moment: “did you know ‘racecar’ is ‘racecar’ spelt backwards

    BBC Coverage rating: 7/10 – again let down by FOM feed, cutting away to Mrs Schumacher during an overtake FFS! Also Jake is getting annoying, but they handled the Scholari pretty well.

    CHanged my mind when I watched the highlights, best commentary moment is the bit were Brundle mentions that Buttons leading the race.

    The way he says leeeeeads! It’s conveys the situation perfectly, he’s a great commentator.

    Don’t understand why Lewis Hamilton is so popular for the worst driver nominations. He didn’t do much wrong, especailly compared to Sutil or DiResta.
