Had Mercedes taken a more aggressive attitude it would have been a lot more interesting. Watching Lewis trying to conserve tyres is a nonsense. I'd score it a 6 but if I was impartial, a huge fan of Kimi or Fernando I would give it an 8. So I'll give it a 7...
Great to see Kimi on the top step..
At one point found myself hoping that Sutil..or Felipe....would win
Tyres...would prefer to see Lewis giving them a bit more wellie...but new team/car
Did someone once say that he couldn't look after his tyres?
More 'Old News' if I hear Martin Brundle say again..'Look at Vettel...and they say he can only win from the front etc..
That was a couple of years ago..when Seb came thru..... putting JB out... & knocking bits off several other cars...Leggard was commentating.........
Pretty good race; impressed by Sutil's return and Massa's ongoing renaissance, Kimi has always been good value and, imo, deserved more last season, Ferrari seem to have a decent new car for a change, Red Bull are up there but not dominant, Mercedes look well placed to challenge ....... Seven!
I'll give it an 8 just because i'm partial to Kimi. I do hope it's a sign of things to come this season. Nice to see Ferrari with what appears to be a better car than last year and I am a bit surprised at the pace Mercedes showed this weekend.
I give it a 7. As a fan of Kimi, I am thrilled that he is leading the championship. As one who abhors strategic racing, I would prefer that all stop be outlawed, barring mishaps (i.e. puncture) and having everyone racing on equal terms. It's probably my age showing!
