    Best Driver: Alonso
    Worst Driver: Gutierrez
    Best Team: Ferrari (I was gonna say McLaren for nailng the strategy on Button’s car but…)

    Race Rating: 6.5/10

    World feed rating: 6.5/10 – once again, on thing missed here, one thing missed there, messy cut-offs and so on.

    Best Driver: Fernando Alonso – Worked his way through the traffic better than anyone else and kept his pace up, this rewarded him with a comfortable victory.
    Worst Driver: Esteban Gutierrez – Got knocked out of qualifying in Q1 when the car was capable of making it to Q3 and then made a silly rookie error in the race.
    Best Team: Ferrari – Pretty much faultless, the only criticism I can think of is that they probably should have pitted Massa earlier (maybe alongside Alonso) in the first stint.
    Worst Team: Red Bull – I don’t think they made the most of their pace this weekend and made multiple mistakes which cost Webber a points finish.
    Best Overtake: Massa on Hamilton – Opportunistic move from Massa that moved him up into a strong position and allowed him to challenge him teammate.
    Best Funny-moment: Webber’s tyre going on a little journey.
    Most Surprising Result: Ricciardo 8th – Didn’t expect to see him ahead of the Force India’s in the race.
    Least Surprising Result: Button beating Perez again – I really hope Perez can pull it together or he’s not going to be at McLaren for long.
    Special Mention to: Raikkonen for holding onto 2nd despite fairly severe front wing damage, Button on making his strategy work and Ricciardo on an overall strong performance.
    Race Rating: 8/10

    Best Driver: Fernando Alonso – Well deserved win, no one really could challenge him.
    Worst Driver: Esteban Gutierrez – Awful weekend until the crash with Adrian, which made it disaster.
    Best Team: Ferrari – Fastest car of the race.
    Worst Team: Williams – 3 races behind and still struggling so badly.
    Best Overtake: Massa on Hamilton – Nice move that surpirsed Lewis totally.
    Best Funny-moment: Webber’s wheel making a little journey.
    Most Surprising Result: Ricciardo 7th – Usually he falls back in races, but not this time.
    Least Surprising Result: Bianchi beating other backmarkers.
    Special Mention to: The top 5 and Ricciardo, all of them had an awesome race.
    Race Rating: 8/10

    Best BBC/Sky commentator/presenter: Edwards
    Worst BBC/Sky commentator/ presenter: Coulthard- he kept saying that Hamilton was the first Mercedes pole sitter since Moss, which is false. He then repeated it on the podium. I assume he meant first British driver, which is barely significant anyway considering the team has only had two other drivers in the intervening 58 years. Also on the podium he made a comment about Alonso and his girlfriend having a private celebration. Not sure if he intended it as it sounded, and it did make me laugh, but it was pretty inappropriate.
    Best Commentary moment:
    World feed rating: 6/10 cutaways sometimes came at irritating points. Early in the race, when Hamilton was being pressured, too long was spent on replays of the start. Slow-mos were nice but a bit out of place. Too long was spend watching Alonso cross the line when there was a close battle between Hamilton and Alonso.

    Worst Driver: Esteban Gutierrez- struggled in qualifying and made a glaring rookie mistake, despite having a great start.

    Best Funny-moment: di Resta: “I think a win was possible here; it’s just a shame Adrian compromised my race”

    Least Surprising Result: Kimi and Alonso on the podium
    Special Mention to: Ricciardo, Vettel
    Race Rating: 7.5/10
