I was so excited for the start of the 2011 season, especially after the vintage 2010 year. Followed the winter testing and expected a close and dynamic season come Bahrain 2011, then Bahrain was cancelled and we all had to wait a little longer fro Australia before the season started. I enjoyed Australia and Malaysia but come to china the races had become very processional and i lost interest in the sport, i thought the results were predictable, in regards to who would win and what teams would follow him home. I stopped watching formual one and finally came back to it in Belgium and i’m glad i did, i wish i had watched the parts of the season that i missed and hadn’t jumped to the conclusion that 2011 was a whitewash. bring on 2012, lets hope things get a lot closer, and that mercedes gp wins the championship…
1: China – I really loved this race, one of the best I’ve ever seen. 10/10
2: Germany – three way battle for the lead all the way through, Vettel showing he’s human. 9/10
3: Malaysia – The first real test of Pirelli tyres, was the sign of things to come. 10/10
4: Britain – Very interesting race, some great battles at the front and exciting finish. 9/10
5: Belgium – Loads of brilliant overtaking moves, lots of incidents, interesting race. 8/10
You might have noticed they’re not in order of rating, that is what I gave it on the poll, I obviously haven’t been very consistent in my scoring this year ;).
Other races of note were:
Barcelona – 9/10
Canada – 9/10
Hungary – 8/10
It’s been a really great year for racing, I think every race on my lists deserves to be called a classic.
