    Best Driver: Very hard to decide. Toss-up between Vettel, Massa and Rosberg.

    Vettel’s recovery race was one of the best I’ve ever seen, and had the tyres lasted a little longer he would’ve outdone Webber’s performance last year (at the very same track!).

    Massa, on the other hand, could’ve scored a very solid finish, but it looks like the F2012 doesn’t like the soft tyres. He did an amazing job keeping Kimi and co. at bay and just drove the hell out of his car. Emerson freakin’ Fittipaldi seems to be extremely proud of him!

    Rosberg dominated the race in Vettel-like fashion, but Schuey and Jenson’s horrible pit stops really helped him out. Would’ve loved to see him compete against those two.

    …yeah, against all odds I think I’ll give this one to Massa.

    Worst Driver: Hulkenberg. Was invisible today.

    Best Team: Mercedes. Have they finally solved their tyre issues?

    Worst Team: Lotus. HOW do you mess up Kimi’s strategy like that?

    Best Overtake: Vettel on Raikkonen, as everyone else said.

    Best Funny moment: “We have liftoff!” – Webber

    Most Surprising Result: Rosberg, definitely.

    Least Surprising Result: Button.

    Special Mention to: Grosjean&Maldonado, with a little dash of Perez&Kobayashi. And let’s not forget Hamilton&Webber. Some amazing duels today.

    Race Rating: 9/10

    Best BBC/Sky commentator/presenter: DC and Edwards were pretty good.
    Worst BBC/Sky commentator/ presenter: Lee McKenzie is very disappointing, disappointingly.
    Best Commentary moment: N/A
    World feed rating: 8/10 much better tham Malaysia

    Best Driver: I suppose Brittney, his maiden win should be a special moment.
    Worst Driver:
    Best Team: Williams. Merc/Mclaren pitstops cost them
    Worst Team: Lotus (Renault) for not bringing in Kimi when they should have. Lost a lot of points.
    Best Overtake: Vettel on Kimi. Credit where its due.
    Best Funny- moment: Webber almost going the way of Valencia ’10
    Most Surprising Result: How many cars were racing for so few points. Really competitive field
    Least Surprising Result: That the race was great, we knew it could be after last year
    Special Mention to: The Chinese fan interviewed on BBC forum, bless him.
    Race Rating: 9/10

    BBC vs Sky: BBC
    Best BBC/Sky commentator/presenter: DC, I like him more & more as a presenter and he did well on the grid walk bit.
    Worst BBC/Sky commentator/ presenter: Anderson (who in fairness, is better in the features/post race bits but not as a live reporter)
    Best Commentary moment: n/a

    Okay I fail to understand why some of you are saying Massa drove well when he finished 13th four places behind his team mate. Please Explain.

    Best Driver: Rosberg. Like Webber, his first win was massive when it finally came.
    Worst Driver: Perez – for nearly sending bits of both Saubers flying through the air (when he moved over on Kobayashi) and somehow getting spat out the back of the top-ten battle
    Best Team: Williams. Smart move doing the tough long stint early – moved both cars forward with life left in their tyres, so they could pick off the fools who tried to do 5th-gear corners side-by-side on the marbles.
    Worst Team: Toro Rosso – as if they weren’t there at all.
    Best Overtake: Grosjean & Maldonado. Fabulous wheel-banging action over a whole crazy lap. Shades of Villeneuve and Arnoux, seriously. Credit to them both for keeping it clean.
    Best Funny- moment: Ross Brawn’s smug glance down the pit lane in final qualifying.
    Most Surprising Result: Rosberg’s tyres lasting. (but would’ve liked to see him fend off a late attack from JB)
    Least Surprising Result: Massa out of the points. He was never far enough ahead to make that strategy work.
    Special Mention to: Senna. Showed Maldonado the way despite an hour and a half less practice time and a battered front wing (a bit lucky though, to get away with that)
    Race Rating: 9/10

    BBC vs Sky:
    Best BBC/Sky commentator/presenter: Ben Edwards this time. Didn’t really stand out, but fine.
    Worst BBC/Sky commentator/ presenter: You get what you pay for with grid walks. BBC at least captured some of the atmosphere but the presenters looked lost, and Coulthard headed straight for his old mates at Red Bull…
    Best Commentary moment: “the firstest fast sector of everybody” (Ben Edwards) not a loller but he’s keeping the Murray Walker tradition going.
    World feed rating: 8/10 Followed the important action well e.g. Button gaining on Rosberg.
    Pity the cars look so slow on the long shot down the straight.

    @CarnivorousPope – Trulli train. He held off a huge pack of cars with highly worn tyres. Defensive driving is underrated (especially when someone who usually sucks at it, like Massa, does it). Also, he finished a mere 5 seconds behind Alonso, when he even had to let him past.

    Best Driver: Rosberg, flawless win.
    Worst Driver: Ricciardo, finishing behind his team mate, who started from the pits.
    Best Team: Red Bull, their strategy gained them a lot of points.
    Worst Team: Lotus, like they never even heard of ‘the cliff’.
    Best Overtake: Vettel on Raikkonen, even though Kimi’s tires were dead.
    Best Funny- moment: almost 3rd backflip in Webber’s career.
    Most Surprising Result: Raikkonen 14th.
    Least Surprising Result: both McLarens on the podium.
    Special Mention to: Button, might have had a shot for the win if it weren’t for that last stop.
    Race Rating: 8/10, slow build-up with a great climax.
