Worst Driver Can't really pick anyone
Best Overtake Alonso on Webber
Best Moment The chequered flag. zzzzzZZZZ
DRS + Tyres DRS spoils it, stupid gimmick.

The race lasted about 8-9 corners, after that it was over and so so dull. zzzzZZ

Terrible track, get rid!

also, whoever voted this 'race' as 10/10 needs to watch some races from the 60s,70s,80s and see what 'racing' is.

Best Driver- Vettel or Alonso
Worst Driver- Vergne and Kobayashi didn't do much.
Best Pass- Hard to judge, as most were with DRS on the straight. Alonso/Hamilton/Button at the start was great driving
Best Moment- That 3 second steering wheel change for Hamilton. Wow!
DRS/Tyres. Tyres fine, if a little on the conservative side but DRS down back straight too easy at times
In a line: Alonso keeps plugging away but Vettel seemingly on an unstoppable charge to a 3rd straight crown

6/10

B. Overtake - Alonso multiple times
B. Moment - Alonso giving it everything
DRS/Tyres - What tyres? All you whiners should be happy, tyres are back to the boring predicatble things RBR can dominate on
In a sentence - The whole track was filed with more smoke than a bushfire, and it looked awful. Can we just give AD, China, India, Korea, Bahrain one spot on the calender and alternate? They all look the ****ing same

Rating: 5 - my driver had a good race

Best Driver: Vettel for just a perfect weekend. One cannot ask for me.
Race: Sebastian had Alonso on the leash, which was actually quite enjoyable. Overall, races seems to be all the same these days. Rewriting regulations will need a lot of work.

Barcelona or Magny-Cours used to be boring, but this race was as close to watching paint dry as you can get, first corner win and unchallenged throughout the race. Actually it was more interesting watching users of the Autosport live forum debug a porn infected PC! (allegedly!) - or jp's live feed from Japan

Such is the dominance of the Red Bulls I can see the championship being wrapped up easily, but take nothing away from them

thankfully it finished early enough as to allow the rest of the day to be more constructive

good win for VET though, no problems....

I think Alonso's drive bumped it up from a possible 5 or 6, though.

Barcelona or Magny-Cours used to be boring, but this race was as close to watching paint dry as you can get

This really isn't the track's fault. Blame Red Bull for being so dominant if you're gonna point fingers somewhere. It was obviously possible to pass.

Barely. Everyone seemed to need DRS to do anything, and Kimi was jammed up behind Massa all race with no real passing spots. India is significantly worse than Korea.

These new tracks are apparently designed for "passing" but offer up fewer true non-DRS passing spots than Spa or even Barcelona. Compared to today, the Spanish GP was an 11/10. I fail to se why they need to be so shit if that shitness doesn't create passing like they told us it would.

Worst race of the season, seriously nothing to hold one's interest.

Best Driver - Alonso
Worst Driver - Perez, Vergne
Best Overtake - There were no real overtakes
Best Moment - When Vettel's car started sparking and for a millisecond you thought maybe there was some life in the championship after all.
DRS + Tyres - One stop race? Yawn.

In all honesty races have been poor ever since the summer break. I don't know what has happened, but ever since the summer entertainment wise the races went rapidly down hill.

While watching Vettel do four in a row this morning, I was wondering if Bernie is busy trying to find some way of making sure that a different driver wins each race from now on.

Wel you guys if you only watch a GP for the battle at the front (P1 & P2) I understand it was a boring race,
but I enjoyed it, mostly because of the other battles in the midfield of for the last places in the points.

BTW All one finger Vettel-shows are dull... it's a new Schumacher type of show.. superb driver in best car.. = dominating ... some 1-finger dude on P1 dominating = Dull.

Best driver: Alonso
Worst driver: Perez
Best overtake: Alonso on Webber
Best moment: Massa letting Kimi by to overtake him with DRS on the long straight.
DRS+Tyres: Good we have DRS, Tyres.. not much difference between Prime & Options.
In one sentence: Better then last year

I don't mind a dominant race win.

What I do mind is a race dominated by DRS (I was particularly saddened by the way Kimi lost an overtake on Massa to the DRS zone. You could argue he should have hung back and done the work work the easy way, but is that really that approach we want to see), and acres of dull run off in front of a handful of spectators through a haze of smog. I found it a strangely depressing watch.

4/10. +1 for Hamilton's steering wheel change.

I guess this was the most boring race of 2012 but this is exactly what the people who were critisizing Pirelli that their tyres caused too much unpredictable results wanted I guess, this seemed a race like the Bridgestone era, with predictable results.

Best Driver Vettel

Worst Driver --

Best Overtake Raikkonen on Massa - when both were trying to avoid being the first car for the DRS activator and letting each other go. :rotfl: I have seen drivers fight tooth and nail to go ahead, but to stay behind? This is definitely the overtake of the race!

Best Moment Again, Raikkonen and Massa fighting to yield position inspite of fighting against each other the whole race at all other times.

DRS + Tyres :down: and :down:

And the race in a sentence...
They need the tyres to degrade.
The compulsory two compound rule must go, at least if a car wants to driver the whole race distance with one set. I think some cars could have tried that today.
