    Best Driver: Alonso
    Worst Driver: Grosjean
    Best Team: Ferrari, their car might be terrible but the strategy/pit stops were spot on
    Worst Team: Mercedes again flattering to deceive
    Best Overtake: There were so many, maybe the one by Senna around the outside of turn 6, or the basically identical pass Ricciardo made. Or the Alonso pass around the outside of Webber at the restart.
    Best Funny- moment: can’t think of a good one off the top of my head, but the Lotus/Kimi ice cream PR gag tickled me
    Most Surprising Result: Perez
    Least Surprising Result: Massa
    Special Mention to: Senna for making it from the back to 6th
    Race Rating: 10/10

    BBC vs Sky: Sky, because it was live
    Best BBC/Sky commentator/presenter: DC
    Worst BBC/Sky commentator/ presenter: Georgie
    Best Commentary moment: Fernando Alonso wins!
    World feed rating: 3/10, some really bad stuff yesterday like missing Hamilton coming out of the pits just ahead of Button, and Alonso putting the race winning pass on Perez. Also the lap 3 replays are particularly ridiculous in a wet race when there’s loads of action on the track.

    Best Driver: Sergio Perez – Fastest man, should have won, but for that slight mistake. Therefore, it should really be Alonso, as he didn’t make mistakes, but Alonso is experienced at winning, and Perez isnt, it was all new, and he was better.
    Worst Driver: Romain Grosjean – 1 lap speed only it seems at the moment.
    Best Team: Ferrari – McLaren fluffed it, Sauber fluffed Perez’s win, Red Bull were just lacklustre, Mercedes shocking etc etc.
    Worst Team: Mercedes – Thouroughly dissapointing.
    Best Overtake: Senna on Schumacher, or any other around turn 1 and turn 6.
    Best Funny- moment: The Gazebo’s on the grid, and then HRT with an umbrella
    Most Surprising Result: Perez
    Least Surprising Result: People at the back (including Massa)
    Special Mention to: Senna and Vergne, both drove brilliantly but were overshadowed by Perez’s stunning drive.
    Race Rating: 10/10

    Best Driver: Perez. Could it have been his Fisichella moment?
    Worst Driver: Massa. He simply has to go. IndyCar would suit him. Also, we have once again seen that Vettel can’t race, that HRT crash was his fault and the way he talked about Kartikeyan was disgusting.
    Best Team: Suaber
    Worst Team: Mercedes, they keep throwing it away.
    Best Overtake: Senna on everybody
    Best Funny- moment: HRT 10th at the red flag
    Most Surprising Result: The podium
    Least Surprising Result: Massa, and the back markers
    Special Mention to: Jean Eric Vergne
    Race Rating: 9/10

    BBC vs Sky: Watched both, take out the fact that Sky are live, the BBC were MUCH better. Better post race analysis, more informative commentary, picked up on things that Sky should have, better and more engaging interviews. Did I mention post race analysis?
    Best BBC/Sky commentator/presenter: DC for BBC/Ant for Sky
    Worst BBC/Sky commentator/ presenter: EJ for not being there, although I saw hardly anything of Gary Anderson/The generic Sky presenters of Georgie Thompson and Simon Lazenby. Both don’t have a clue what they’re doing.
    Best Commentary moment: uh…
    World feed rating: 3/10 The stuff they missed…

    I would say the award for driving goes to Sergio Perez and the funniest moment was the resserection of the gazebos!
    Sky I feel offer the overall package, but they simply do not analyse enough. I love Crofty and Martin!

    Best Driver: Alonso
    Worst Driver: Button. Clumsy crash (I thought it was Hamilton when I saw it, and that’s a compliment to JB, not a dig at Lewis) then whining over the radio like the Honda / Brawn off days.
    Best Team: Ferrari. Would’ve said Sauber, but the late final stop and radio message to Checo showed they didn’t have the killer instinct to win a Grand Prix
    Worst Team: Mercedes, hopeless oooh-it-might-rain “strategy”
    Best Overtake: Webber got Grosjean and Schumacher good on the first lap, out of turn 2.
    Best Funny- moment: Vettel finding another use for his famous finger
    Most Surprising Result: PĂ©rez
    Least Surprising Result: Karthikeyan turning 10th place into last.
    Special Mention to: Williams. Fastest pit-stop’s a good effort; pleased to see Senna get the first points (and lots of them) and nearly their first double points finish for ages.
    Race Rating: 8/10

    BBC vs Sky: BBC, decent highlights again. Bit of a stupid question for me as I don’t have Sky.
    Best BBC/Sky commentator/presenter: Eddie Jordan. His absence made the post-race stuff really good.
    Worst BBC/Sky commentator/ presenter: No doubt Georgie Thompson was rubbish
    Best Commentary moment: “He’s trying to mate a Sauber with a Mercedes” (David Coulthard)
    World feed rating: 5/10 Did what it says on the tin. Fed the world. There’s never much sense of speed at Sepang, maybe some lower camera angles would help.

    Best Driver: Perez OR Alonso
    Yeah, I know I should probably pick just one, but both way outperformed their cars.

    Worst Driver: Grosjean. He may be great over a single lap but if you can’t stay out of trouble on race day it’s not much use.

    Best Team: None. No team performed consistently well with both cars/drivers, but if I had to give it to anyone it’d be Ferrari because their strategy calls were good.

    Worst Team: Mercedes. If they are as quick as everyone thinks they are, when are they going to show it?

    Best Overtake: one of Senna’s overtakes (I can’t remember who it was on lol)

    Best Funny- moment: Vettel’s team radio:”Come in” “stay out” “come in” “we’re going to retire you”

    Most Surprising Result: Sergio Perez 2nd

    Least Surprising Result: Lewis Hamilton 3rd

    Special Mention to: Bruno Senna for an epic drive from last to 6th
    Race Rating:9 /10 (If Perez had taken Alonso it might’ve moved up another place)

    BBC vs Sky: Sky
    Best BBC/Sky commentator/presenter: Ted Kravitz
    Worst BBC/Sky commentator/ presenter: I don’t know to be honest, noone really stuck out as awful.
    Best Commentary moment: Ted’s gazebo story
    World feed rating: 6/10 It was ok, a few incidents missed, and for some reason we were forced to see a Merc pitstop instead of the battle for the lead, but overall ok.

    What did he do? Usually he’s brilliant! Although I have to admit, I’ve not heard him commentating on F1 yet.

    Most Surprising Result: Both the Ferrari and the Sauber of Perez!
    Least Surprising Result: The tailenders

    BBC vs Sky: Sky
    Best BBC/Sky commentator/presenter: Crofty!

    Best Commentary moment: When the commentary dropped out for 10 mins in Australia.. ENGINE NOISES! :D
