    Best Driver: Raikkonen or Alonso or Hamilton or Vettel. Can’t decide. Raikkonen probably. Credit due to the win.
    Worst Driver: Webber – he failed at everything today: bad start, one collision – his fault, a second almost-collision – his fault and a third one – not his fault but…incredible bad luck, poor pace. He even failed at making room for Vettel, for god’s sake. One of those days.
    Best Team: Lotus – has to be. They’ve overcome all their issues with the exhaust in less than a week’s time.
    Worst Team: Mercedes – another race, another non-points finish.
    Best Overtake: Alonso on Webber in lap 1, no DRS.
    Best Funny-moment: Pretty much every team radio to and from Raikkonen. And Vettel’s despair moment with Ricciardo.
    Most Surprising Result: Both Williams cars in the points.
    Least Surprising Result: Mercedes going home empty handed, again.
    Special Mention to: Hamilton, Maldonado, Senna, Kobayashi, Grosjean – twice a victim today and Bernd Mayländer.
    Race Rating: 9/10

    World feed rating: 7.5/10

    Best Driver: Vettel
    Worst Driver: Webber
    Best Team: Lotus
    Worst Team: Mercedes
    Best Overtake: Vettel on Button. Alonso’s on Webber doesn’t count as Ferrari’s top speed is huge and he had the overall best car (Massa did not have Alonso’s upgrades so he doesn’t count).
    Best Funny- moment: Raikkonen’s team radio messages
    Most Surprising Result: Ricciardo finishing in the points
    Least Surprising Result: Hamilton retiring due to a car failure
    Special Mention to: Raikkonen, Alonso, Maldonado, Coulthard
    Race Rating: 10/10

    Alonso’s overtake was due to his super late braking, as well as Vettel’s (who also had huge top speed after the changes on the setup)

    Race Rating: 8/10

    Best BBC/Sky commentator/presenter: Martin Brundle
    Worst BBC/Sky commentator/ presenter: Jon Watson/EJ/DC
    Best Commentary moment: Cant remember one that stands out
    World feed rating: 8/10 – saw more of the back of the field, probably due to Vettel though

    On a side note, I was forced to watch the BBC’s coverage of P3 and Qualy… My god it is dire!! After watching Sky’s coverage for most of the season, the BBC is seriously lacking and I’m not just talking from a technological standpoint, the commentary is awful, you would think that the commentators would at least watch the screen that they are commentating on and DC is just….awful! The pundits don’t listen to either what they are commenting on or even the questions asked. It is a mess. I want informative, not drivel! I may have to put up with Simon Lazenby, but he is a treat compared to the BBC’s team of presenters and pundits!
