Great season so far. Some great overtaking and some good racing. Rated it a 9, but the politics are getting very very tiresome.

An ok season but dull season so far I give it a 4. I hate it when we already know who the race winner is going to be every race weekend (ala Schumacher years) , I don't know why the rules needed to be changed since the last three seasons have gone down to the last race and has certainly had plenty of great overtakes. This season has been a slap in the face for Bernie because the triple deck diffusers have made overtaking much more difficult now so where back to where we were last year. Though the rule changes have made the season interesting in terms of the other teams now being the frontrunners like Brawn and Red Bull and new faces on the podium as well. It certainly has changed the grid order and I'm happy for Jenson, he deserves all the glory hes been achieving this year.

It's been pretty disappointing. I don't like the look of the cars too much, KERs was a disaster, the technical changes intended to make passing/racing easier failed. Then there was the double difuser controversy and FIA vs FOTA. And to be honest, I don't really like the topsy-turvey grid. Button has driven well, but I'm already tired of the media saying what a great regular guy he is. All of the big teams have, or soon will, stop development on this year's car, so the gaps will probably get bigger. It's fine to see Red Bull and Brawn win, but I want to see Raikkonen, Alonso and Hamilton with at least a fighting chance. This year, they look like no-hopers.

bar red bull's recent one-two, brawn's domination is making it a bit boring. i'd prefer the previous season's "2 horse battles". this season brawn had no real opponent, although red bull is now emerging as it's top rival. hoping for some teams to be able to catch up as well.......

Agreed, although I like others winning and a sense of sportsman-ship seems to have returned to F1 between the drivers, who now are not doing so well seem friendlier towards each other and seeing Webber and Vettel and Button doing well seems so good and how happy they are - but I would like to see the champions further up the field, they're made to look like GP2 rookies

Disappointing how without rain or safety cars races are as dull as they have been the last decade, the new aerodynamics have done little to improve overtaking, and the new diffusers are seemingly making that worse. KERS is a dud and the politics of the sport is infuriating, as if they're deliberately trying to wear out the patience of fans and sponsors. Despite that, the season has been quite good and if Vettel can keep up his Silverstone form we have a good title battle on our hands. Also BBC have provided much better coverage than ITV, despite Legard's appalling commentary. But the politics will make this season a success or failure.
