Lux Interior should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Snooze fest. Miss the data when engines routinely failed because they were pushing everything right to limit and drivers made bold moves. It’s all sanitized now. Sort of lost it’s luster.

Generous 3.
Without the last lap a 1.
This race made me think there needs to be a 0 in ratings although hard to imagine anything worse than this.
Mercedes-killing F1 a race at a time.

Taxi645 has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
As a counter point. The mid field again was quite close. Something F1 doesn't get across/visible very well.

If 2021 F1 can maintain a close field and battles for position become more possible, it could get quite interesting eventually.

1. The fields are the closests they have ever been. Ok, Mercedes is an outlier again, but overall the fields are very very close.

2. As long as qualifying sorts the field in order of performance, how do you expect more battles for the lead (except for utterly different strategies)?

3. Even with a budget cap money will always make a difference.

I know this has been discussed before. Just wanted to caution before hopes get too high.

One of the most boring F1 races ever, best thing to see was the scrap for 7th place.
But even there you just knew penalteis were going to be given....
F1 is killing itself and not slowly if it goes on like this.

It kept my attention throughout, though I'm not sure why. So I was going to give it 6. Then I thought about those stupid coloured stripes everywhere and downgraded it to 5. On further consideration I should have downgraded more for that ridiculous track. Remember how F1 was ridiculed for the GP in the Caesars Palace car park? But at least that track was sort-of defined and not just painted on. And they saw the error after just the one running of it.

The mid-field scrap was OK. Most passes were simple DRS ones. A couple of banzai moves - Russel on Kubica for example. Nothing really happened in the front 4

I have seen worse races - lots in fact. The horrible paint all over the place annoys me.

OK I'm wallowing in nostalgia and any passion held for 50 odd years may well pall but, looking at races at Clermont-Ferrand, Nurburgring, Watkins Glen, Brands etc with 4pots, V6s, V8s, V12s all easily identifiable by sound and colour makes the current "sport" look like slot racing.
Couldn't have put it better myself. So I won't try. Oi'll give it 2 (remember her?) which is being generous.

Blimey i thought it was just me thinking this race was bad, the points are showing just how poorly people thought the race was and even the motoring press has been less than polite about it

Pretty boring for sure - although I'm not sure Lando Norris would agree - but I can't see how anyone can claim "Mercedes - killing F1 a race at a time" - what are they supposed to do, lose deliberately? The fact that LeClerc was apparently able to pressurise Bottas in the last couple of laps shows that there should have been the possibility of tighter competition, maybe if Vettel hadn't let his head go down after his qualifying issues......
