    Best Driver: Perez. Made the 1-stop strategy work beautifully, 15th to 3rd is a awesome result
    Worst Driver: Button, under performed again
    Best Team: McLaren. Played the strategy game perfectly
    Worst Team: McLaren. Mucking up pitstops again! (While Ferrari got the strategy wrong, it wasn’t a bad decision. They gambled and unfortunately lost)
    Best Overtake: Schumacher up the inside of Kobayashi into the hairpin. Sadly undone by DRS immediately afterward
    Best Funny-moment: Vettel and Webber enjoying a swim after the race
    Most Surprising Result: Grosjean 2nd. Read reports that Lotus were expecting to struggle this weekend. Nice to see him on the podium
    Least Surprising Result: Lewis winning. It was always going to be his weekend wasn’t it?
    Special Mention to: Massa. Recovered from his early spin to pick up points. Maybe more if I hadn’t had that late stop
    Race Rating: 8/10

    Not much point doing Sky/BBC comparisons as only Sky covered the race live!

    Best Driver: Hamilton I guess. Although both Grosjean and Perez were good, they were a bit anonymous.
    Worst Driver: Button. Him or Senna, except, Button had a race-wining car.
    Best Team: McLaren I think. They were sensible on strategy, and Button failing wasn’t really their fault.
    Worst Team: Ferrari. To my mind their strategy was ridiculous. If they were planning a 1-stop, then keeping to Hamilton’s pace was a mistake. Then not recognising the mistake like Red Bull only made it worse. HRT also disappointing after their good quali.
    Best Overtake: Not sure I remember any really. Actually, Rosberg on somebody! Into the chicane. Kimi?
    Best Funny-moment: can’t remember any.
    Most Surprising Result: Perez, or maybe Button
    Least Surprising Result: Schumacher
    Special Mention to: Grosjean, Perez

    Best Driver: Romain Grosjean- Outqualified his more experienced teammate, and got his 1 stop strategy work to get himself into 2nd.
    Worst Driver: Bruno Senna- Off the pace all weekend and spent most of the race behind Kovalainen’s Caterham.
    Best Team: McLaren- Used a superior strategy to allow Hamilton to beat his closest rivals, vastly improved pitstops as well.
    Worst Team: Williams- Not sure exactly how much it was the teams fault, but both drivers failed to deliver for whatever reason.
    Best Overtake: Rosberg on Massa, or possibly Perez on Rosberg.
    Best Funny-moment: Perez claiming that he does less pitstops than other drivers to save Sauber money!
    Most Surprising Result: Perez on the podium.
    Least Surprising Result: Hamilton on the podium.
    Special Mention to: Fernando Alonso- Drove a great race and kept Hamilton honest for most of it, strategy let him down in the end.

    Best Driver: Hamilton, but Grosjean or Perez deserve a mention
    Worst Driver: Senna. I wanted to give him time, i wanted it to work. And its not so far.
    Best Team: I dont think there was a standout team in all honesty. Perhaps Mclaren for their brave 2nd pitstop
    Worst Team: HRT since they had neither driver finish.
    Best Overtake: Nico on Kimi going into the Wall of Champs, both respectful of each other…. and that wall!!
    Best Funny-moment:n/a
    Most Surprising Result: Lack of DNFs / 1st corner mayhem
    Least Surprising Result: Hamilton victory here, he’s made for this circuit
    Special Mention to: as mentioned, Grosjean & Perez
    Race Rating: 8/10

    Best Driver: Grosjean — for tyre management
    Worst Driver: Button — lapped by Hamilton, says a lot…
    Best Team: Sauber — unlucky not to get Kobayashi up there as well
    Worst Team: Williams — fighting with the Caterhams
    Best Overtake: Perez on Rosberg — took advantage of the slow-moving Massa brilliantly
    Best Funny-moment: Perez’ comment about saving the team money!
    Most Surprising Result: Perez on the podium
    Least Surprising Result: Senna fighting with the Caterhams
    Special Mention to: Hamilton — drove well all weekend
    Race Rating: 8.5/10 rounded up to 9

    Best Sky commentator/presenter: Villeneuve — oppinionated is good
    Worst Sky commentator/presenter: Lazenby — dull as ever
    Best Commentary moment: Nothing stands out
    World feed rating: 9/10 — can’t remember it missing anything, but nothing that special.

    Best Driver: Hamilton – for sure: he was insanely fast, kept his cool and delivered
    Worst Driver: Senna – as Button has a slight excuse, losing a lot of practice time and not nailing the setup
    Best Team: Sauber – consistent, managed to recover from a rather poor quali and score with both drivers
    Worst Team: Williams – Maldonado going through his n-th gearbox for nothing, Senna struggling even with the Caterhams
    Best Overtake: Schumacher on Koba at the hairpin
    Best Funny-moment: -
    Most Surprising Result: Grosjean – 2nd
    Least Surprising Result: Senna – 17th
    Special Mention to: Paul Di Resta for a good quali and start, before getting overwhelmed with the one stoppers in front and his tires
    Race Rating: 8/10

    Best Driver: Hamilton, when he wins it’s always a classic
    Worst Driver: Senna, was absolutely nowhere all weekend
    Best Team: McLaren, for actually getting their strategy right for once
    Worst Team: HRT
    Best Overtake: Perez on Rosberg while also battling Massa down into turn 1, it was very professional and it was pivotal to Perez’ race.
    Best Funny Moment: Seeing Jacques Villeneuve’s bald head for the first time, what was he doing?
    Most Surprising Result: Grosjean and Perez out of nowhere on the podium
    Least Surprising Result: Button struggling, you could see it coming from the start
    Special Mention to: Grosjean, Perez, Alonso, F1
    Race Rating: 9.5/10 (but I gave it a 10)

    Best Sky commentator/presenter: Georgie Thompson, not for the GP, but the interview with Murray Walker after the coverage was brilliant.
    Worst Sky commentator/presenter: Jacques Villeneuve, hate the man
    Best Commentary moment: N/A

    Best Driver: Hamilton
    Worst Driver: Button
    Best Team: Sauber
    Worst Team: Marussia
    Best Overtake: Perez on Rosberg. He’d have got Massa too in the same move, he was way faster out of the last chicane – but Rosberg came back on from the escape road and blocked him
    Best Funny-moment: The Merc pit crew bashing Schumacher’s rear wing and leaning on it, trying to get it to shut. Not much German engineering going on there!
    Most Surprising Result: Perez jumping past so many drivers
    Least Surprising Result: Hamilton winning, believe it or not. He’s very quick round here.
    Special Mention to: Everyone on the very smiley podium (nice trophies must have helped). Great drives from Grosjean and Perez. Sergio was particularly good for doing fastest laps with one stop, and for stuffing Kobayashi.
    Race Rating: 7/10

    Best BBC commentator/presenter: Ben Edwards, kept the excitement going in the slow-burning early stages.
    Worst BBC commentator/presenter: they were all good. Decent no-nonsense highlights show. Didn’t miss Jake-of-all-trades at all.
    Best Commentary moment: not awarded
    World feed rating: 9/10 Much better than Monaco. Clearly knew their stuff, did smart things like zooming in on the two battling cars as a whole pack came into shot.
    But slapped wrist for the caption saying Webber was starting on yellow tyres.

    Best Driver: Perez
    Worst Driver: Button
    Best Team: Sauber

    Best Overtake: Schumacher’s divebomb on Kobayashi
    Best Funny-moment: Mercedes. Everything about them has been a joke, not just here, but across the whole season.
    Most Surprising Result: Perez finishing third, even moreso than Grosjean finishing second.
    Least Surprising Result: Schumacher retiring with a car failure.
    Special Mention to: Grosjean and Perez, of course!
    Race Rating: 7/10. Piss poor until the closing stages.
