1 - Best Driver
Felipe Massa was very good today, especially at defending from Hamilton. I also have to mention Sutil who had a brilliant drive to 6th - good job!
2 - Best Team
Force India with both drivers in points.
3 - Best Overtake
The one and only Alonso on Button round the outside at turns 6 and 7.
4 - Best Moment
Webber's victory and podium.
5 - Worst Driver
Maldonado, maybe Senna.
6 - Worst Team
/
7 - Best Rookie
Di Resta
8 - Biggest Surprise
A very undramatic start.

9 - General Comment(s)
I'm not sure if Vettel really had a gearbox problem, but I'm still happy for Webber. Too bad there was no rain, because it could be better.

1 - Best Driver:Webber, finally a win, and also Vettel, he managed a sick car very well, and Sutil, it is going to be hard for Vijay Mallya deciding his team lineup for next season, Sutilhas performed really well in the last couple of races

2 - Best Team: Red Bull, I haven't seen them this dominant since Turkey, both cars were flying

3 - Best Overtake: Alonso on Button, awesome move

4 - Best Moment:"I feel like senna in 91!" Maybe funniest team radio of the season

5 - Worst Driver:Maldonado

6 - Worst Team:Toro Rosso,whole weekend they were struggling

7 - Best Rookie: Di Resta

8 - Biggest Surprise:Dry race when the forcast was showers! we had the same forcast for Germany too but it was also a dry race, what's wrong with these forcasts?!

9 - General Comment(s): I was expecting a race with much more ecxitment,6/10
A craven can be as brave as any man, when there is nothing to fear. And we all do our duty, when there is no cost to it. How easy it seems then, to walk the path of honor.

1 - Best Driver. Button and Alonso
2 - Best Team, one-two, RBR
3 - Best Overtake. Have some doubts, Alonso to Button was nice, outside and not on straight or DRS zone. But I think maybe button had some problems, because was so "easy" to overtake him, strange. For it's revelance in results, Button to Alonso, but was another DRS zone overtake (and I think even without DRS button would overtake Alonso)
4 - Best Moment -
5 - Worst Driver, Massa, home race and like all year, very bad. After the full season i have a question. Alonso was a fantastic driver with a poor car?, or Massa was a poor driver with a not so bad car?
6 - Worst Team
7 - Best Rookie
8 - Biggest Surprise

9 - General Comment(s)
I don't understand DTP to Senna, I think was a racing incident. I don't understan not DTP to hamilton by yellow flag overtake. Overtake = overtake no mather if is lapped car or not. Nice, RBR gearbox problem to Vettel. Last year teams must call this "save fuel" or things like, but this season there are not this problem.

Edited: I have not the exact date now, but there was a lot of time when a Ferrari driver didn't get any podiums in a season.

4 - Best Moment: Nothing special

5 - Worst Driver: The driver who calls himself "Senna"

6 - Worst Team: HRT

Rather boring race as pretty much all of them since the summer break. It appears that race by race the teams understood better the characteristics of the Pirelli tyres and adjusted their strategies, therefore the " nasty surprises" due to tyre degradation became less frequent.

1 - Best Driver => Vettel (would have won the race by his own meriths)
2 - Best Team => RBR (they managed to get the best results that a team can achieve in a race (1st and 2nd) and in the required order to favor both drivers in the standings.
3 - Best Overtake => Alonso on Button (no DRS trick).
4 - Best Moment => When the team "pledged" to Kobayashi to not take risks as the team needed the points.
5 - Worst Driver => Senna.
6 - Worst Team => HRT.
7 - Best Rookie => ...
8 - Biggest Surprise => ...
