We only got 6 racing laps out of the first 20 due to crashes. The following 30 laps were pretty lacklustre. The drama in the final two laps was incredible and unexpected though and might bump up the overall score...

I think I would have to overall give it a 5. Without the end drama it would have been a 2 or 3 at a stretch.

Well no doubt the last few laps have bumped up my score dramatically.... it was boring at batshit up until the last laps and at best a three.
I gave it a 6 so yeah, the last few laps doubled my score. I just wish that it was Lewis who had the failure when / where Bottas did.... if only for the title race which is now all over rover.

3 points. After the two safety cars really nothing happened. Only the last two laps were more spicy.

Championship is done. That is clear. Just like next year.

Bring on 2022. (we can hope)

A four for me. The last couple of laps almost brought it to a 5.

I actually gave the race a 7 after a bit of thought. There was plenty of action albeit not at the pointy end, some controversial defending and hard racing.. a couple of crashes (and great to see cars going off into some gravel), and even though Lewis still won, I don't think that I'll forget the end of that race any time soon.

7.

The last 2-3 laps were actually memorable. I can't say that about most races.

I gave it a 6. My only live race of the year and I did sit down to watch it, by lap 24 I was so bored I hit the record button and did something else. I went through the rest of it on a click of fast forward and was glad I'd recorded it when I saw the drama in the last couple of laps. One lap more and Max would have had a win, in fact another few yards and he might have. He gave it his all that's for sure.

5/10 here.

Only the last lap dramas saved it from being a real yawner.

Oh...hard to say, it was pretty exciting towards the end with three cars having their tires delaminate. Had it moments before then, but was kind of processional at times. Maybe a 4, maybe a 5. I will go with the 5.

It was a very poor race and the speeds that the cars are going into the corners are making Silverstone effectively one whole fast track without any proper braking points. A 6/10 thanks to the last three laps.
