I'm feeling generous so I gave it a 4.

+1 and Ferrari beat the Red Bulls fair and square +1 and Danny Beat Seb +1 but Mclaren had a shocker -1 and Williams still not as high as I had hoped -1
So a 6.
5 from me.
I suppose it was always going to be a pretty stale race in comparison to Bahrain though.
3- is it over yet?
Some of breaks (five I think) had a small picture in picture showing the action, but it's really not enough. The commentators were ok, although I missed Crofty's excitement. It might have been more but for these fundamentals, so a 3 from me
The current F1 qualifying format is designed to create upsets. Their logic is - wouldn't it be exciting if the cars are in the wrong order, and fast cars have to get round slower ones to win. Creates overtaking.
The problem with this logic is that it is much more fun to see Hamilton and Rosberg racing, than to see Rosberg passing Vettel and Alonso. I think if you want exciting wheel to wheel racing, then you need people to line up alongside cars with whom they are closely matched.
The older F1 format where you had 60 minutes to set fastest lap with unlimited tires was a much better way of keeping the cars in the right order. We should revert to that. Remember when we could be assured of a tight race between Damon and Michael? We need more of that.
Also the points system also needs fixing. Imagine if the championship ended today? The less deserving driver would win the championship. We have a points system which rewards luck more than a system which rewards talent. It should be 2.5 races to recover from a DNF. Not 3.6 races.
Could you clarify whether that's a 5 or a -5?
Chad Stewarthill , it's a +5, like plus fours, but with less street cred on the links
