Best Driver: Raikkonen just nabs it from Vettel for me, great charging drive early in the race.
Worst Driver: Nico. Call yourself a Rosberg? Bad idea for stewards to show it’s OK to drive like that in Monaco and Canada.
Best Team: Lotus, really quick
Worst Team: McLaren. The pits, and Button was nowhere.
Best Overtake: Paul di Resta getting Maldonado & Perez in one
Best Funny- moment: Lee McKenzie: “Great result, Kimi. That must have put a smile on your face!” (Nope)
Most Surprising Result: Lotuses’ speed
Least Surprising Result: Webber 4th…
Special Mention to: Ferrari. Dignified, understated reaction in the face of real tragedy (see their Twitter, or quotes from Dominicali in press releases) contrast with the emotional overreaction, PR spin and petty arguments over Force India. Blinding starts, points for Massa and hopefully their car will be better next time.
Race Rating: 8/10 – We nearly got a great battle for the lead this time – it’s been coming for a few races now. Maybe next time.
Best BBC/Sky commentator/presenter: David Coulthard.
Worst BBC/Sky commentator/ presenter: James Allen’s over-the-top reaction to Rosberg’s moves. They didn’t look that bad later on TV.
Best Commentary moment: DC on the grid, saying the British government haven’t said the race shouldn’t go ahead (“up yours” to the bandwagon-jumping Opposition wannabes)
Spare a thought for the GP2 teams who are staying on or returning to Bahrain for another race next weekend. Insane scheduling. Hope they get all the police back-up etc they need, now that the media spotlight is moving on (BBC is already wetting itself about the elections in France)
