1 - Best Driver
Lewis Hamilton. The McLaren was probably inferior to the Red Bull yet Lewis didn't give up

2 - Best Team
Red Bull won the race

3 - Best Overtake
Perez on Massa was nice. So was when Vettel nabbed a few in one lap. Button's double as well. I'm giving it to Grosjean in the GP2 race earlier. Round the outside of three cars into Turn 3-4-5.

4 - Best Moment
Alonso's start. Simply amazing

5 - Worst Driver
Felipe Massa. Time's up son.

6 - Worst Team
Ferrari. Wasted tyres in Q1, wasted Alonso's pace. Useless car and they still employ Massa

7 - Best Rookie
SERGIO PEREZ!

8 - Biggest Surprise
Alonso's start

9 - General Comment(s)
Best Spanish GP

1 - Best Driver - Hamilton and Alonso, they made this a good afternoon
2 - Best Team - McLaren
3 - Best Overtake - Perez on Massa
4 - Best Moment - Hamilton vs. Vettel in the closing laps of the race. Brilliant fight.
5 - Worst Driver - Massa, incredible if he's in the Ferrari next year. Just as I sad, he lost his talent in Hungary
6 - Worst Team - Williams
7 - Best Rookie - Perez
8 - Biggest Surprise - Webber and Alonso that far behind Vettel and Hamilton

9 - General Comment(s) - Yabedabedoo, Ringdingdingding, like, seriously?

Broadcasting was TERRIBLE! And I think it was as good as Turkey: we had a fight for the win, but not as much of overtaking as in Turkey, so that levels it up. 8/10

1 - Best Driver
Lewis Hamilton, did a brilliant job to to close up on the faster Red Bull, another tack and he may have got victory

2 - Best Team
McLaren, got 2nd and 3rd even with Jenson's poor start; beat Webber fair and square, and on a different track could have won

3 - Best Overtake
Jenson Button on Fernando Alonso, at the inside of turn 9 was a great one.

4 - Best Moment
Vettel passing 4(!) cars in one lap (Button, Massa, Rosberg & Schumacher)

5 - Worst Driver
Felipe Massa, was in dreamland throughout the race, at times 2 seconds sower than Alonso, could not overtake anyone, and got trounced by Petron & Heidfeld before retiring

6 - Worst Team
HRT, 5 laps down is way too much..... was thinking of Ferrari but just couldn't give that due to Alonso's start and drive (when he did not allow cars that should be a lap in front of him to pass for position)

7 - Best Rookie
Sergio Perez, also did some nice overtakings

8 - Biggest Surprise
Alonso's start and Alonso a lap down

9 - General Comment(s)
8/10, good race, nice to see Hamilton chasing Vettel till the end & Button beating Webber' and of course Schumacher in 6th and Perez in the points after he had a few robbed in Melbourne.

1 - Best Driver
Hamilton should get a lot of plaudits, but Vettel didn't even have KERS for large parts of the race, and his pace (and defensive timing) were superb. Perfect damage limitation is where there's no damage at all.
2 - Best Team
McLaren upped their game.
3 - Best Overtake
Vettel on Button as part of two overtakes in three corners.
4 - Best Moment
Well, even though I was pretty sure that Alonso was going to tail off, I still loved the start and the first two stints.
5 - Worst Driver
I don't really know. It's been really hard to choose this year.
6 - Worst Team
Some of the backmarkers were terrible, but I guess that shouldn't reflect badly on the teams.
7 - Best Rookie
Perez was great.
8 - Biggest Surprise
A good Grand Prix in Spain? Although it had nothing on "Survival Sunday".

9 - General Comment
So, I think Hamilton had the better car under him when Vettel lost his KERS (EDIT: which is to say that in general terms, that Red Bull is the best car, but when you cripple it slightly, it's a more close run thing). You could see Vettel's traction was terrible in the slow corners. Ferrari are probably third fastest, although you wouldn't know it if you just watched Felipe Massa. Alonso wrung its neck. I don't think it had any right to lead into the first corner. From there, I guess you'd have to say that Mercedes look like the next fastest team, and Renault are a tiny bit behind them.

Oh yeah, and 7/10, almost an 8:

Chinese Grand Prix 9/10
Turkish Grand Prix 9/10
Malaysian Grand Prix 8/10
Spanish Grand Prix 7/10
Australian Grand Prix 7/10

This is the best season in my watching memory (from 2003-ish with the odd smattering of races from before then).

1 - Best Driver
Tie between Vettel and Hamilton, really. Great last few laps.

2 - Best Team
McLaren, I'd say. After quali I really didn't think any of their drivers could challenge a Red Bull, although they've proven that this year they're really strong in the race. Lesson learned, next time I won't underestimate them.

3 - Best Overtake
Vettel on Button.

4 - Best Moment(s)
Hamilton catching up with Vettel.

5 - Worst Driver
I wouldn't say worst, but for someone who supported Massa in the '08 title fight and believed in his ability, it's really disappointing seeing his performance dropping off in the last two seasons. Although he supposedly had a gearbox problem today, it doesn't change the general trend.

6 - Worst Team
Considering their start to the season, I'd say Williams. Absolutely nowhere. I'm surprised that nobody talks about them much, it's such a shame. In testing everyone is praising their "tight back end" and now just look at that car. This statement seems to be crass, but I can't help myself thinking, "This is a dying team". Since '97 not much has been going right at that team, but this year I really have the feeling it's only going downhill from here. First they loose Phillips and RBS and then have to sign a driver for their main sponsor who only catches my attention if he's once again stuck in some gravel trap. I'm not shure if signing Mike Coughlan and probably switching to Renault engines (if they can afford it?) is really going to help them getting back up the order.
Well, I really should write about this in another thread, since this isn't the place to write novels, is it? Just wanted to say that I'm not happy seeing a former top team being stuck in the midfield year after year.


7 - Best Rookie

You don't see much of them on the screen,but considering his finishing position, it's Perez.

8 - Biggest Surprise
Alonso jumping from fourth to first at the start.

9 - General Comment(s)
Not the usual Barcelona procession, which was a good thing. And great fight between Hamilton and Vettel in the last few laps. If only Alonso had a competitive car, it would make it even more interesting.
To look ahead, I don't see anyone other than a RB driver to win Monaco plus it not one of my favorite tracks to say the least.
Contrary to Canada, which is a great track and Hamilton seems to enjoy it too, so I'm hoping for another non-RB win there.
And we'll see the supersoft in action at both venues, which Pirelli seemed especially proud of at the beginning of the season, so that'll be interesting.
