1 - Best Driver
Schumacher. I genuinely don't believe tha Hamilton deserved to win, and I think the Red Bull drivers were idiots, and Schumi was best of the rest. So him.
2 - Best Team
McLaren had the fastest car on the day.
3 - Best Overtake
Alonso on Petrov in a fairly unconventional place. Not Alonso's fault that Petrov drifted wide into him.
4 - Best Moment
It was all pretty good.
5 - Worst Driver
It would be churlish to say Vettel, but I honestly can't think of anyone else. Buemi perhaps?
6 - Worst Team
Ferrari. Terrible pace; 5th best team on pace. Shocking.
7 - Best Rookie
Petrov, although Cowboyashi did a sterling job.
8 - Biggest Surprise
A good race at Istanbul park?

9 - General Comment
The race was really enjoyable because of the tension. The major incident of it was also exciting, and the constant boy-who-cries-wolf rain/no rain? situation had me hooked. It's the upper end of 7/10.

Also, I feel I need to back Alonso up here. People are attacking him for making mistakes, but it's worth noting that before Turkey (where the car was absolutely terrible and Alonso seemed largely unequipped to deal with it) every mistake he had made, he had adequately or more than adequately made up for. When a string of real luck comes his way, and as long as the car is on the pace, he will be there.

Here:

Australian Grand Prix 9/10
Chinese Grand Prix 9/10
Turkish Grand Prix 7/10
Monaco Grand Prix 7/10
Malaysian Grand Prix 7/10
Spanish Grand Prix 5/10
Bahrain Grand Prix 5/10

1 - Best Driver
Button. He's never given any credit, but on a dry track he stuck with the front 3 and then had the audacity to pass Hamilton

2 - Best Team
McLaren - they finished 1-2

3 - Best Overtake
The McLaren battle around Lap 50 or 51. That was brilliant

4 - Best Moment
When Vettel took himself out

5 - Worst Driver
Vettel

6 - Worst Team
Red Bull had the pace to be 1-2, they didn't manage the situation properly and they ended up with a sole 3rd place

7 - Best Rookie
Petrov. Great race, ruined after the Alonso clash

8 - Biggest Surprise
Red Bull taking each other off

9 - General Comment
Best Turkish Grand Prix to date. Top 4 were very close for ages. Ferrari? Oh dear, oh dear dear.

2 - Best Team - Mclaren and Red Bull
3 - Best Overtake - Button/Hamilton - Hamilton/Button
4 - Best Moment - Red Bulls crashing in the lead
5 - Worst Driver - Hulkenberg, Di Grassi (it is looking bad for him IMO)

8 - Biggest Surprise - I dont care what others say. If this is required to make proper entertainment in F1, then i am over the moon. OFF with any Team restrictions (orders). The RB and Mclaren tussle was superb, It made the race much better than what it could have been :D
One point regarding Ferrari- I feel very sorry for them, and i feel even more sorry for Kimi and Fisi for having to tolerate such a poor car last year. I know i am being harsh on Ferrari but i am sure Kimi will be smiling ti himself.

9 - General Comment - great
