I think if it were easier to pass then we could have seen a good duel between Hamilton, Vettel, Grosjean for the victory. Perhaps Kimi as well.

So, I'm still not a fan of this track.

Very good. An 8.

Hungaroring is a track that is growing on me more and more. It has always been a track I want to go to for the GP, and has always had cool corners, but nowadays I enjoy it even on TV as a race in itself. So much more interesting than anything Bahrain/China/Abu Dhabi/South Korea/India/any other Tilkedrome serve up.

6 for me. Was a good race with plenty of tension but in all honesty not all that gripping IMHO.

5 while the race was slightly more entertaining than usual on this track (in the dry), it's still one of the most boring circuits to me.

A 7. A pretty decent race - and I'm no fan of the circuit in question. I suppose because Hamilton got such a lead over Vettel that could count against it, but there was plenty of action. Hamilton was an overtaking machine there. Decent battles from Button, Vettel, Kimi, Alonso. Only Grosjean mucked up a bit - his overtake on Button was a bit misjudged.

8. this race really came together for me in an unexpected and very entertaining way.

one complaint is they never showed LH passing Button. it was probably done in the DRS zone (i think the commentators alluded to that) so a straightforward move but it turned out to be a crucial moment of the race and i dont think we even got a replay.

although my curiosity about it only added to my trying to figure out all the varying strategies even more so maybe not seeing it added to my enjoyment.

I realli liked this. It helps that my driver won, but that aside I still found it fairly interesting.

For that same reason the end to Jerez 1986 was very boring. In fact most of the '80s racing was dull-o-rama. And i've never rated Fangio's '57 Nurburgring win.

Lets have qualifying to line them up in order of pace, give them consistent race cars and watch the overtaking thrill us.

Remember the days of the 20 minute qualifying with the final minute of frenzy? Qualifying engines good for only a few laps, unlimited tires, unknown fuel loads and strategies. Imagine the pressure the mechanics had back in the day to change engines for race day, set up the T-cars on top of the two cars on the grid. Now there is Parc ferme...the mechanics can go to sleep.

I wouldnt add South Korea to that mix, its a pretty solid "cut the BS" type of almost oldschool circuit in my book (despite being new) and AFAIK Tilke's involvment was minor to None there.

However I certainly agree with what you've said. These new tracks are putting everything in perspective, certainly my appreciation for Hungaroring grows year by year (btw most def among the top5 coolest tracks to drive on with any F1 game Simulator imo) and I really miss Imola and even Magny-Course (each of which are far better than the new ones you mentioned combined)

The race was a very strong 7 for me but it easly had a potential of 9 would they have let Grosjean saga to unfold ..... Thanks McNish

7, enjoyed it but found myself drifting off a couple of times. The battle for minor places kept my interest .
