1 - Best Driver: Maldonado. Honourable mention Kobayashi in 5th, easily overlooked. 2 - Best Team: Williams 3 - Best Overtake: Were a few good ones, Vettel did some nice moves, Massa did a good one on a Force India and Hamilton on the Toro Rossos. Have to give it to Kobayashi though for his move on Button. 4 - Best Moment: The final stint. 5 - Worst Driver: Pic, spun and held up Alonso. 6 - Worst Team: McLaren 7 - Best Rookie: Grosjean 8 - Biggest Surprise: Need I say? Maldonado.

1 - Best Driver - Pastor Maldonado 2 - Best Team - Williams 3 - Best Overtake - Kobayashi on Button 4 - Best Moment - Maldonado in front after the second pit stop 5 - Worst Driver - Michael Schumacher 6 - Worst Team - Red Bull, 8 points are far too litle for the wcc. 7 - Best Rookie - ? 8 - Biggest Surprise - Maldonado's race pace!
9 - General Comment(s) - the worst race so far this season. But it was still a very good one. 8/10
Maldonado, great performance yesterday, solid race today, didn't lose his head when Alonso overtook him, he stayed close to him, "overtook" him in the pits and managed to hold him for the rest of the race.
2 - Best Team
Williams for being very fast and consistent this weekend
3 - Best Overtake
Hamilton's on the two Torro Rossos at the same time
4 - Best Moment
I guess it must be when maldonado crossed the finish line
5 - Worst Driver
6 - Worst Team
Torro Rosso, they don't perform well lately. A strong contender is McLaren for constantly undermining their drivers.
7 - Best Rookie
8 - Biggest Surprise
How many of us would expect a Williams winnning today?
9 - General Comment(s)
A rather typical Spanish GP, even this year's Pirellis couldn't add a little suspense.
1- Best Driver: Pastor Maldonado 2 - Best Team: I have to say Williams despite Senna's problems 3 - Best Overtake: I never see an overtake on turn 4 in Barcelona. Lewis did it on both Toro Rosso, wow!!! Superb drive. 4 - Best Moment: Hard to say honestly. I would say the last part of the race. To see a Williams still in front of a Ferrari at this stage, and then Kimi tried to closing the gap, just great moment. 5 - Worst Driver: Massa was one lap behind his teammate, awful! 6 - Worst Team: McLaren because of yesterday... 7 - Best Rookie: Grosjean 8 - Biggest Surprise: Maldonado for his great drive during the hole race. 9 - General Comment(s): Definitely one of the best Spanish GP since so many years. A lot of actions, battles, drivers struggling with their tyres, and a superb win by a guy who scored only 4 points before that.
I'm so happy for the Williams team, they deserves this win after a lots of years behind the field.
Five races, five different winners, just amazing. And Lotus could possibly win one of the next few races...This championship looks very exciting. Both Alonso and Vettel are now at 61 and Hamilton at 53. Don't forget Kimi at 49. I nver thought that the Finnish could be a contender for the championship. He's definitely back in F1. Just nice to see that.

1 - Best Driver. Maldonado 2 - Best Team. Lotus, both car on top 3 - Best Overtake 4 - Best Moment. After last pit stop 5 - Worst Driver. Massa, only fast that Caterham/Marussia/HRT. Charles Pic, Blue flags ignored. Shumi, stupid crash, and even he complain 6 - Worst Team. McLaren, Hamilton had a lot of option to be first or second on Q3, and they play to "Low fuel" trick. Stupid!!, I think is too much send Hamilton to last position on grid, maybe send as the last of top 10 was better option. 7 - Best Rookie 8 - Biggest Surprise. Watch some overtakes on Spain race
9 - General Comment(s) 5 races, 5 different drivers winning, 5 different cars winning, 4 countries
