The most action-packed race in many years, perhaps a decade? Just lacked more of a fight for the lead and a deserving winner.

9,5 but give it 10 for charity

 

That might have been the best race since, I don't even remember when. And probably on at least tie with Hungary 2021 as the most dramatic since ???

 
The worst thing was the TV direction which was somehow even worse than usual

5 cars from 5 constructors with tenths between each battling for the podium with a handful of laps left around a classic circuit with the crowd roaring… basically as good as F1 gets. One of the best races I’ve ever seen, tbh.

Best race for years, had everything. Thriller. I’m not even taking a point off for the accident, because a) they’re all okay, and b) it set up the rest of the race - had the first start counted with Max waltzing away I don’t think we’d be looking back on this epic.

Best driver - Hamilton was inspired today. For once though, the luck wouldn’t quite come to get him on that top step.
Worst driver - Tsunoda was pretty silly and Ricciardo was utterly anonymous, so one of those two.
Best team - Mercedes have made real strides and really only bad luck prevented the race from falling their way.
Worst team - they won, but Ferrari showing their strategic ineptitude yet again.
Best overtake - Leclerc around the outside of Lewis just pips Lewis on Charles and Perez. Some great ones.
Worst overtake - Tsunoda on Gasly!
Best moment - the pure racing between Leclerc, Hamilton and Perez in the closing laps.
Worst moment - Ferrari absolutely screwing Leclerc on his big, big opportunity to gain on Max is unforgivable.
Best thing about the race - it was brilliant
Worst thing about the race - Zhou’ s accident.

In a sentence - thrilling race on a proper circuit between three strong teams, more please.

Best driver: Hamilton, Perez, Leclerc

Worst driver: Ricciardo (again)

Best team: not too sure on this one. Not sure anyone was flawless- Haas had a good one?

Worst team: McLaren for needlessly giving Alonso 6th. And Ferrari for doing the same to Leclerc, although I was chuffed with a Sainz win.

Best overtake: Too many to pick from!

Worst overtake: Zhou clearly overtook Russell upside down, which I’m sure is against the rules.

Best moment: we all know.

Worst moment: we all know.

Best thing about the race: Zhou back in the paddock before the race had even finished.

Worst thing about the race: realising Ricciardo might actually be past it.

And the race in a sentence: more of that please. 10

7/10 - best race I've seen in twenty years!   ;)
 
Best driver: Hamilton
Worst driver:
Best team: Ferrari by a hair - I didn't understand their tactics with Leclerc, but I don't have all the info
Worst team: a three-way tie between Williams and the two Alfas
Best overtake: Leclerc - Copse - Hamilton, and that with a damaged car, wow!
Worst overtake: Tsunoda on Gasly
Best moment: hearing that Zhou was okay
Worst moment: seeing Zhou sliding a hundred miles upside down
Best thing about the race: some nice wheel-to-wheel stuff, and no petty penalties when lines were marginally overstepped
Worst thing about the race: DRS and pit stops

And the race in a sentence: F1 shows promise, but they still need to fix it.

Best driver: Leclerc. Sublime today, and I think the bump with Perez was unfortunate. The move was on in my opinion.
Worst driver: Ricciardo. Consistently and comparatively useless.
Best team: Haas - double points!
Worst team: Ferrari. From my view, a very weak pitwall today. No conviction.
Best overtake: Leclerc at Copse. Balls, skill, and great entertainment.
Worst overtake: Tsunoda.
Best moment: Lap 45 to Lap 52. A go kart race.
Worst moment: Easy to say Zhou's accident, but that's predictable. The end of the race was the worst moment, as the entire Grand Prix was a gift.
Best thing about the race: The last 10 laps or so.
Worst thing about the race: Not much, so I'll stick with the cliché TV direction. Not using their best people.

And the race in a sentence: A race befitting the circuit and the sport.

Lol! It asks best team, not best car.

Carlos and Ferrari did everything they could to throw away a 1-2 today and by some miracle (and Maxs bad luck) got a win for Carlos. They could easily have been 3rd/4th behind Max and Lewis today. They got very lucky. LeClerc was lucky to hold on at the end.

Best driver: Hamilton
Worst driver: Gasly
Best team: Mercedes for the clear jump in pace
Worst team: Ferrari. Indecisive and no longer clear of Mercedes.
Best overtake: Charles re-passing Lewis at copse. It seems you can go side by side when on the outside of that corner.
Worst overtake: Gasly driving into a closing wedge at the start
Best moment: Lewis chasing down both Ferraris on hard tyres
Worst moment: The moments following Zhou’s crash
Best thing about the race: Mercedes on the way back.
Worst thing about the race: I will answer this, but first here’s 3 minutes of replays of my previous answers.

And the race in a sentence: Good racing on a good circuit, less of the street tracks please.

I scored it an easy 10, certainly the best GP I have seen in a very long time. I was happy for Sainz and pleased to see Perez come back and finish second. I was also happy that none of the drivers were injured in the first lap incidents,

Worst thing about the race: Max spending most of the race 2s off the pace

Best driver:                            A lot of good drives today: Hamilton, Alonso, Vettel. Leclerc was going to win till the SC interrupted, but that’s Charles luck currently.        
Worst driver:                         Nobody had a mare, but Yuki did manage to take his team mate off.
Best team:                              Red-Bull, managed to conjure up a result from nowhere, honourable mention for Hass getting to cars in the points.
Worst team:                            Ferrari, it should have been an easy win, but dearie me…………..
Best overtake:                        Charles on Lewis at Copse, I had to look away – expecting an airplane type crash.
Worst overtake:                      Yuki, taking his team mate out.
Best moment:                         Hearing Zhou was ok.
Worst moment:                       Start line crash, seeing the car upside down in the gravel had me fearing the worst.
Best thing about the race:      Seeing Albon & Zhou were ok after the race.
Worst thing about the race:    Car are getting too heavy and clumsy, I liked Karun’s idea of ditching the Hybrid power, and going back to V10 with Carbon neutral fuel.

And the race in a sentence: 10 out of 10, it had everything. Thought the Hamaster was going to take the late win, but not to be.

Best driver: Carlos Sainz (didnt give up and stayed there to ensure he goes for the win)
Worst driver: George Russell for the lack of situational awareness at start
Best team: Red Bull for getting more than what looked was possible for them
Worst team: umm Ferrari maybe? Not saying that they should have put Lec ahead but with some smartness, they could have got both drivers on podium as minimum.
Best overtake: Leclerc fightbacks
Worst overtake: Yuki on his teammate
Best moment: Hard to say
Worst moment: The red flag with no news on what happened
Best thing about the race: Change of circumstances and position meant we didnt have to sit back and wait for chequered flag
Worst thing about the race: No info from RC about incident and restart

Best driver: Leclerc, aggressive and in control once he hit the front. 
Worst driver: Ricciardo might've been unlucky in qualifying but he was nowhere even as Lando was troubling the top 6.
Best team: Mercedes took a big step forward.
Worst team: Alpha Tauri, having your drivers collide (and your world championship leader run over their debris) makes this one easy.
Best overtake: Leclerc's pass on Hamilton at Copse
Worst overtake: I don't remember names but there was a bit of shoving on occasion.
Best moment: Hamilton's double overtake coming onto the pit straight!
Worst moment: The very long wait for fans to hear that Zhou -- and for that matter marshalls, the crowd -- was OK after his scary crash.
Best thing about the race: The last 10 laps.
Worst thing about the race: The crash off the start, but even then, it apparently saved the field from meeting the protesters a bit further round the lap.

And the race in a sentence: Everyone hits trouble, Sainz pulls away from four-way fight for second.

Worst moment: Red flag with no infomation for ages
Best thing about the race: Entaining race
Worst thing about the race: Red flag with no information for ages. nearly an hour wait to restart

And the race in a sentence: an entaining race 8/10, but a race nobody seemed to be able to win and eventually won by luck by a driver who didnt deserve to win
