    Best Driver:
    Worst Driver:
    Best Team: McLaren
    Worst Team: Caterham
    Best Overtake: Vettel on Kimi or Alonso on Perez
    Best Funny- moment: Webber Wheely
    Most Surprising Result: Mercedes winning
    Least Surprising Result: McLaren boys completing the podium
    Special Mention to: Vettel, underrated drive. Nearly finished 2nd despite being down in 20th at one point.
    Race Rating: 9.5/10

    BBC vs Sky: Didn’t watch BBC
    Best BBC/Sky commentator/presenter: Johnny Herbert (time to replace D.Hill)
    Worst BBC/Sky commentator/ presenter: GT
    Best Commentary moment: ?
    World feed rating: 8/10


    Best Funny- moment: almost 3rd backflip in Webber’s career.

    4th (2 in the Mercedes) or 5th if you count the Monaco pool back flip!


    Best driver: I can’t think of anyone that did a better job than Rosberg, but there was some terrific driving this evening! Really good stuff.
    Worst driver: No idea.
    Best team: Mercedes. Easily the best strategy and they won with the second (or possibly third) best car. Rosberg was going very, very slowly in the last few laps (and why not?) and he was much slower than Jenson in the middle stint, but his team made it work. It really reminded me of @slr‘s performance in the Silverstone Collantine Cup race! :-D Flawless drive on a risky strategy.
    Worst team: No idea.
    Best overtake: Can’t really remember any stunning passes, but I did enjoy seeing Webber go around the outside of Vettel at the hairpin.
    Best funny moment: Webber seeing the sky! Very lucky it didn’t go over or break when he landed.
    Most surprising result: Before this weekend I’d have said Rosberg, but before the race, I had a fair idea he was in with a good chance. Probably Vettel getting 5th, actually. I cannot believe he even scored points today! Great strategy from RBR.
    Least surprising result: Schumacher getting bad luck when in a good position again…
    Special mention to: Senna for continuing to defy his critics.
    Race rating: 8/10

    BBC vs Sky: No idea as I was stuck with Sky. :-( But if I had to take a guess, I’d say BBC.
    Best BBC/Sky commentator/presenter: Brundle. Some good one-liners this weekend and today.
    Worst BBC/Sky commentator/presenter: They were all pretty good. Johnny Herbert is also much better at that job than Damon Hill.
    Best commentary moment: Brundle’s “Awww, that’s the most disappointed I’ve been since Shrek 2!” when Schumacher retired!
    World feed rating: 9/10 Lose the endless start replays and it would be great.
