I thought that was fantastic. I didn't even have a chance to wee during that race. Not all races are about non-stop wheel to wheel action.

That was a solid 8.

7. Maybe 7.5.

9 if Lewis had blown a tyre.
10 if Hulk hd finished on the podium.

Not that much on-track dicing but absolutely riveting strategy drama and kept me glued, so 8.

Ill go with an 8.... I did a nil stop strategy and stayed in my chair all race. Didnt even get up to make a coffee or grab a beer.
Some great passes, (especially Albon) no S C, different strategies and a non Hamilton / Merc win.

Same 'what ifs' for me.

I can't really get excited for the second double header races, too much of the same. Which to be fair F1 generally is but than adding the same track is just a bit too much.

For me, it depends on the track. I've always loved Silverstone so I wouldn't even mind a triple-header there :tongue: but somewhere like say Hungary I'd be less pumped about a double-header.

I'm so freaking torn about this.

On one hand, if we weren't in a Mercedes-dominated era, this would be a diabolically boring race.

But because it's a Mercedes dominated era, it was something to get behind and see if they could be beaten.

It's a space/time-breaking 3-7.

It got a 7 because of multiple strategies being in play, which is exactly what Pirelli were supposed to be delivering week in, week out, but instead they normally just provide a boring one stopper.

I gave it 6, mostly because Max rather than a Mercedes won.

7 for me as well. The strategies were pretty interesting and there was definitely some good passes but I don't think anything super memorable happened.

Some of Albon's stuff was excellent. I really like that chap

Never been a fan of tyre saving races. Pirelli needed some airtime so they scrambled the cards. 5: A point more because mercedes didn’t win this time.

I will give it a 6. In the end, it was dominated by Mercedes blistering. Don't think Verstappen could have won it without that help.

Gave it 9 points.

First because Red Bull taking a risk by qualifying Verstappen on the hard tire.
Second executing the plan perfectly on Sunday. No one, me neither, ever expected a different winner than a Mercedes on Sunday.
Third the big kick in the balls Nico Hülkenberg gave to Stroll and cs. Such a pity he had to pit and dropped back. Also part of the game.

Fourth: There is some hope Red Bull (and in particular Max) can embarrass Mercedes at Barcelona.
