mjo Yes it was far too harsh. For some reason I wasn't to excited by this particular race, especially the middle of it. But I have to say it was a 5 or 6.
But I think my initial reaction (and the poll's results) shows how excellent the races are at the moment. 3 years ago I think most of us would have given it a 10 and we would be talking about how amazing this race was for weeks and months.
So sorry for my childish vote just minutes after the race.
I thought it was pretty poor, the field spread out quite readily and there wasn't much in the way of incident. I've given it a 3 (voting on the basis that '5' is an average 2012 race) mainly because of the battle for the lead at the end.
7 I don't rate a race on individual or team performances only on entertainment value, it wasn't the best race but it wasn't to bad either, at the end I didn't mind if Mark or Alonso won as long it wasn't Vettel, so I'm a happy camper....
I gave it a generous six. It would have been a much more interesting race if 11th to 17th on the grid had been Maldonado, di Resta, Grosjean, Schumacher, Massa, Alonso and Senna, like it really ought to have been.
