And the race in a sentence: Great race!

I'm disappointed with the final result but it was a pleasure watching 2 incredibly talented driver battling for the win today. Great race!

I think this was F1 at its finest. Two magnificent drivers from two magnificent teams battling with both speed and strategy. This race also proved that it is not overtaking that has been the main problem all these years.

Best driver: HAM & VER must share that
Worst driver: MAZ (just a reflex response)
Best team: RBR
Worst team: Haas
Best overtake: Kimi on Alonso
Worst overtake: Alonso in GIO
Best moment: Alpine's and Alonso's radio comedy
Worst moment: Kimi's off.

And the race in a sentence: It proved that F1 can still pack a punch.

Best driver - Verstappen edges Hamilton, for soaking up that pressure. Both were outstanding today.
Worst driver - tempted to say Perez but he was ****ed after that race and I feel for him, so Alonso or Mazepin.
Best team - Red Bull - how do you respond to the feeling Merc have pulled decisively ahead? Decisively beat them on their best track.
Worst team - Haas might as well not bother at the moment.
Best overtake - Kimi on Fernando.
Worst overtake - Alonso on Giovinazzi
Best moment - a pure, pure head to head between the top two miles ahead of everyone else. Shades of Suzuka 2000 or Imola 2005.
Worst moment - Alonso’s behaviour running wheel to wheel. He’s better than that. And I really wanted Max and Lewis to be a little bit more celebratory and respectful after the race, but I’m sure that’s asking too much.

The race in a sentence - Max vs Lewis.

Lots of "almost action" but in the end very little to recommend it.  It just highlights the failure of this particular rule set.

I actually loved the To be continued... finish to the race and gave the race a (low) 9.

I must have watched the wrong race. There was racing in the midfield, but aside from Lewis' pass in turn 1 on lap 1 I didn't see any wheel to wheel racing up front. Seems more like a battle of pit strategies, than racing to me.

A solid 7, IMO.

 

Very tense battle at the front with some nice scraps in the midfield. TV direction and tarmac run-offs let the race down, though.

Best driver: Max
Worst driver: Alonso (shut up and drive plz)
Best team: Red Bull
Worst team: Alpine
Best overtake: A McLaren on the first lap
Worst overtake: Don know
Best moment: McLaren and Ferrari on the first lap
Worst moment: Alpines radio traffic (shut up and do your job)

And the race in a sentence: Two cars chasing each other without close contact can actually be exciting.

Best driver: Verstappen
Worst driver: no-one seemed egregious
Best team: Red Bull
Worst team: again, no howling terribleness
Best overtake: liked all the Ferrari and McLaren jockeying at the start
Worst overtake:
Best moment: Sainz being told he’d given a place back to the wrong car, Alonso enjoying himself getting angry.
Worst moment: As a Lewis fan, the sneaking suspicion the race had just been lost in the pits but that is sport for you. Nothing really bad happened in this race.

And the race in a sentence: Tense.

Had action throughout the field and it wasn't because of rain or whatever. A good 9.

 

Best driver: Charles and Max. One was way and beyond the rest of the field and actually managed to run at the same pace as the leading 3 at times. The other made the riskier strategy work with masterful tire management and won the race.
Worst driver: -
Best team: Red Bull
Worst team: -
Best overtake: Ferrari v McLaren
Worst overtake:
Best moment: Alonso saying "YES"
Worst moment: -

Excellent race. One of those classic, tense pursuits that has characterised Grand Prix racing at its best over the years. And today's top two drivers were visibly having a tremendous go.

Best driver: Verstappen- never really put a foot wrong apart from the start. Hamilton as well- perfect race, just not fast enough.

Worst driver: Mazepin was losing a second a lap to Schumacher. Surely Russian money is only worth so much? Shout out to Bottas, being overtaken by an Alpha Tauri.

Best team: Red Bull.

Worst team: Haas.

Best overtake: Ricciardo on Sainz?

Worst overtake: Alonso taking the piss.

Best moment: First lap antics between McLaren and Sainz- actually got my hopes up there!

Worst moment: When I realised the race was a dud, but was too far in to turn it off.

And the race in a sentence: Next please. Gave it a generous 6.

Best--and worst--overtake:  Stallion punting Brundle on the pit straight.

Best driver: Sergio Perez for scoring a podium with no drinking water all race, for a 2nd driver that's job well done.
Worst driver: normally this is standard Nikita Mazepin but for the sake of variety Kimi Raikkönen for spinning out of 10th place
Best team: Red Bull
Worst team:  Alpine
Best overtake:  Ricciardo on Sainz
Worst overtake:  Alonso on Giovinazzi
Best moment: it wasn't a very good race, none.
Worst moment: Alpine on the radio was quite pathetic

And the race in a sentence: apart from Lewis catching Max it was a boring race

Is this meant in a "what have the Romans ever done for us" way?
