  1. Really bad GP, NO race start, two safety cars, two red flags AND a serious accident, i can not imagine anything worse.

  2. I don’t understand anything about this result by the way. How is Hulkenberg 8th and JEV 9th? Wasn’t Nico 6th and JEV 10th just a lap before de red flag?

      Hi Patrick,

      Because they consider the position 2 laps before the race was stopped.

    2. Race results were declared at lap 44.

    3. They count back 2 laps from when the red flag was flown, so results are from lap 44.

  3. I too am confused. Race was red flagged on lap 46 (?) so wouldn’t that mean it reverts to last time cars went through start/finish line, ie lap 46?

      Nope, they go back two laps, ie lap 44 in this case.

  4. Terrible race, and terrible racing. This is a joke, and not an F1.
    Only Ricciardo showed something interesting. Plus overtake for the lead.

    A good race ruined by very poor race organization and the FIA, at the worst is Jules. I really hope he okay

  6. Good race up to the accident.
    Hope Jules is OK

  7. Has to be the worst race of the season, at least for me. Already lost the interest pretty much when ALO retired, but the overall race was terrible: started under SC, stopped, then started again under SC, then stopped for good before all laps were completed. I like(d) RAI, but this season he’s a total disaster. He gained a place when ALO retired, so promoted to 9th, but finished 12th !!! Ferrari did a big mistake indeed by rehiring him. It was a costly move too. After this season, RAI would look like a “good investment” only for team like Caterham, Sauber, Lotus, Force India. Other than that, his F1 carreer is over. Ferrari really needs to hire a young talent, like JEV, Bianchi or Bottas, as Vettel is not that young anymore. They should learn something from RBR.

    1. One of Kimi’s pit stops was very slow, that cost him 3-4 places, just like in Singapore.

  8. Nico look handy after about half of the race distance but he was pretty flawed after Lewis overtook him and even Seb and Jenson were faster

  9. KMag should be ashamed aswell if im right wasn’t he lapped when Ric was nearly took out? If im wrong i apologise.

    1. He unlapped himself cleanly, nothing wrong with it.

    2. Enjoyed that, a lot! Worth a mention in Pass of the Year.
      Probably gave Dan a few ideas and he probably wasn’t in the mood to punch Kevin afterwards.

  10. thank you keith for not putting up a rate the race poll yet. the correct thing to do under such circumstances.

    …do hope the Honda Heirarchy were taking notice
    of Jensen’s performance, and tell Mr Dennis to keep him for next year…

  12. I thought Jenson had a damn good race today and showed why Mclaren should keep him for another year at least. Kevin on the other hand showed a lot of inexperience, has the guy ever driven in the rain. Thoughts go out to Julies and his family . No matter how many safety aspects are in place, motor racing is a dangerous sport

    1. About Kevin, I saw him last year in WSR at the Hungaroring. Similar conditions, he started from 16th, finished 2nd.

      Still, if I was Ron Dennis and I had ALO knocking on my door, it would be easy to decide who has to yield. KMag showed good things this year and he deserves his place in F1, but he is not in the position to block ALO.
      The most sensible thing to do is to put him in some other team to wait until BUT retires. But where? Usually, you’d look for teams using the same engine as you. But as far as I know, there are only two Honda-powered cars in 2015. Or did I miss something?
