    Best Driver: Fernando Alonso – Maybe could have done a bit more in qualifying, but didn’t put a foot wrong during the race and also pulled off some lovely moves in the opening laps.
    Worst Driver: Lewis Hamilton – Outperformed by his teammate all weekend, a negative attitude didn’t help his race.
    Best Team: Ferrari – Double podium; can’t argue with that.
    Worst Team: Mercedes – Proved that they haven’t got on top of their tyre problems still. McLaren and Williams also had poor weekends.
    Best Overtake: Vettel on Rosberg
    Best Funny- moment: David Croft’s conversation between Button and Hamilton as Button got past in the DRS zone.
    Most Surprising Result: Vettel off of the podium.
    Least Surprising Result: Alonso on the podium.
    Special Mention to: Ricciardo had a solid weekend and Massa made a good recovery from 9th on the grid.
    Race Rating: 4/10

    Least Surprising Result: Williams, sadly, failing to finish in the points a year after winning.
    Special Mention to: Esteban Gutierrez, a rookie being trashed in recent weeks, coming THISCLOSE to scoring points today.

    Best Driver: Alonso – completely in control.
    Worst Driver: Hulkenberg – even though he denies it, he is definitely regretting the move to Sauber and that is starting to show. There’s nothing worse than a frustrated driver.
    Best Team: Ferrari – coming close to a clear 1-2 is not an ordinary happening at the Scuderia in this era of F1.
    Worst Team: Mercedes – starting off great, plunging into anonimacy later on. 2012 all over again.
    Best Overtake: Alonso on the outside of Raikkonen and Hamilton.
    Best Funny-moment: nothing stood out.
    Most Surprising Result: Gutierrez – 11th. The one and only surprise, to be honest.
    Least Surprising Result: Most of the classification…
    Special Mention to: Raikkonen, Massa, Perez, Ricciardo and “bad-luck” Sutil.
    Race Rating: 6/10 – Simply, purely and completely average…

    World feed rating: 6/10 – there’s an overtaking maneouver zooming through and the camera just sticks to the pair behind where nothing’s happening…come on, FOM!

    Worst Team: Mercedes, Good qualifying-speed isn’t enough to take victories.
    Best Overtake: Alonso on Räikkönen & Hamilton at the beginning.
    Best Funny-moment: The “conversation” between Hamilton and Button.

    Special Mention to: Räikkönen, Massa, Di Resta & Gutierrez
    Race Rating: 5/10, One of those races that made me wonder why do I spend an hour and a half watching this.

    Best Driver: Fernando Alonso – Didn’t qualify too well, but was on it the entire weekend.
    Worst Driver: Lewis Hamilton – If your engineer is trying to help you save tyres, don’t get smart with him. Don’t tell your team you were just overtaken by a Williams, take the spot back. He was a little ‘woe is me’ today.
    Best Team: Ferrari
    Worst Team: Caterham – sending a driver out with a loose wheel is stupid, asking him to return to the pit while the FIA is listening isn’t helping at all.
    Best Overtake: Alonso on Hamilton and Kimi.
    Best Funny- moment: Button 17th with van der Garde not too far behind him.
    Most Surprising Result: Hamilton 12th, Massa on a podium whit Vettel behind on merit.
    Least Surprising Result: Kimi scoring another podium.
    Special Mention to: Gutiérrez, van der Garde
    Race Rating: 7/10

    Best Commentary moment: Dutch commentator Ronald van Dam kept calling Rob Smedley ‘Nigel Stepney’..
    World feed rating: 7/10 didn’t always focus on the drivers who were battling, were sparse with replays during the race, but had me switch to the on-board channel during the endless replays of the start..

    Best Driver: Alonso — peerless.
    Worst Driver: Hamilton — slow, cheeky, lapped 12th when Rosberg got points.
    Best Team: Ferrari — fastest car all weekend.
    Worst Team: Mercedes — no points on Saturday…
    Best Overtake: Alonso round the outside of Raikkonen and Hamilton at turn 3.
    Best Funny- moment: “I’ve just been overtaken by a Wiiiams”, cheeky but funny.
    Most Surprising Result: Red Bull’s lack of pace on an aero track.
    Least Surprising Result: Mercedes falling back on Sunday.
    Special Mention to: Ricciardo and Massa
    Race Rating: 6/10 — overshadowed (rightly) by the tyre debate.
