    Best Driver: At the front, Alonso just drove around, and was followed by Webber, except Red Bull used a different strategy and Webber was able to pass. Perez, unfortunately, only had a few laps, though they were brilliant, along with a great start, before being taken out by the clown, and so, throughout the whole race I’d go for Romain Grosjean. He was the only one who really did anything.
    Worst Driver: Pastor Maldonado – The clown strikes again. I personally believe this man needs to be taught a serious lesson with a ban now.
    Best Team: Red Bull – Best strategy.
    Worst Team: McLaren – Shocking. Just poor.
    Best Overtake: Grosjean on any of the guys he passed.
    Best Funny- moment: @guilherme‘s point about McLaren, and Vettel with the Pirelli cap on the MP.
    Most Surprising Result: Massa 4th
    Least Surprising Result: Alonso up there
    Special Mention to: Webber, Alonso, Perez, Massa, Raikkonen, Vettel, Senna
    Race Rating: 3/10

    Best Driver: Webber
    Worst Driver: Maldonado
    Best Team: Red Bull; Ferrari used the wrong strategy with Alonso.
    Worst Team: McLaren
    Best Overtake: Grosjean into Maggots, who was that on again?
    Best Funny- moment:
    Most Surprising Result: Massa, I’d forgotten he was still in F1.
    Least Surprising Result: Usual suspects at the back.
    Special Mention to: Alonso, might have won the race if he had of gone with the other strategy
    Ricciardo, really starting to beat Vergne everywhere.
    Massa, 4th place, not bad.
    McLaren pit stops, not only did they not make a mistake, they were also very fast.
    Race Rating: 7/10

    Best Driver: Romain Grosjean, scrappy start but then just non stop class & speed
    Worst Driver: Pastor Maldonado, he is just far too ragged in racing incidents or outright stupid with some moves
    Best Team: Red Bull, got the strategy right and nice clean race from both drivers
    Worst Team: McLaren
    Best Overtake: Grosjean on almost everyone he passed
    Best Funny- moment: Have to agree with DC & Brundle on the pit walk!

    Special Mention to: Lotus, those cars are fast and they had decent strategy just need to get qualifying sorted
    Race Rating: 6/10, maybe we were spoilt by Valencia being so good, but it was a good but not exceptional race

    Best BBC/Sky commentator/presenter: Allan McNish

    Best Driver: Webber
    Worst Driver: Rosberg. 15th?
    Best Team: Red Bull – good work to jump both Ferraris. Nice KERS-spotting by Webbo’s engineer
    Worst Team: McLaren. At least they’ve sorted out the pit stops.
    Best Overtake: Enjoyed Perez and Hulkenberg going side by side down Hangar Straight, Stowe, Vale and Club. Massa getting past Schumacher at Stowe was good as well.
    Best Funny-moment: Perez’s body language
    Most Surprising Result: Hamilton nowhere
    Least Surprising Result: More big points for Alonso
    Special Mention to: Massa and Grosjean, two different kinds of comeback
    Race Rating: 8/10

    Best BBC/Sky commentator/presenter: Murray Walker
    Worst BBC/Sky commentator/ presenter: Eddie Jordan. Trying too hard, and responsible for the most boring, irrelevant pre-race interview ever, with Hugh Grant.
    Best Commentary moment: Ben Edwards getting very excited in the first couple of laps.
    World feed rating: 3/10 Was a dog directing it today? Missed some of the action, switched shots just before the pass/collision, showed 5 or 6 replays in a row.

    Best Overtake: Grosjean on Button into Maggot’s

    Best Commentary moment: The knife/bread/butter/jam tyre analogy in qualifying
    World feed rating: 8/10 endless replays of the start got annoying.

    Best Driver: Alonso
    Worst Driver: Maldonado
    Best Team: Red Bull
    Worst Team: McLaren – nowhere since FP3
    Best Overtake: Perez on Maldonado if he’d made it. Otherwise probably Hamilton’s improbable move on Alonso

    Most Surprising Result: Perez’s outburst against Maldonado
    Least Surprising Result: Senna benefiting from Maldonado’s mistkes.
    Special Mention to: Paul Di Resta – gutting to be out so soon in your home GP
    Race Rating: 8/10

    Best BBC/Sky commentator/presenter: Probably Ben

    Best Commentary moment: Couldn’t think of any
    World feed rating: 7/10 – generally didn’t get too carried away with showing replays of the start, but did miss Alonso pitting at first and cut from an on-track battle between Schu and Massa
