sweetchuk should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
3/10 - Uninspiring, pedestrian race with few highlights to get excited about. Not something you'd either expect or ever want to see, especially at one of the fastest tracks traditionally on the F1 calendar.

A six... Slight bump above average for drama around stalled car on grid + Hamilton (push when in the lead) + Nico's engine.

4/10. Raikkonen's come back was interesting and there was other bits and bobs to maintain a half interest.

Gave it 7, partly because its Monza, but also because if you peered round the director's somewhat odd choices at times - why do you cut away from a close battle to show a shot of people in the pits looking at, presumably, a screen? - there were quite a few entertaining battles going on, and many of the younger driver's put on a good show.

Tempted to down-mark it for the "tyregate" snafu, but that wasn't really relevant to the race as such.

A solid 6. Okay - not the best race - but there were some decent battles further down the field : Kimi making a comeback, Ericisson, Verstappen, the two Williams drivers near the end of the race, Rosberg trying to comeback from a poor start and near the end Lewis having to build a gap. Above average, but not great.

Enjoyed the race but the tyre regulation debacle after the finish destroyed most of any pleasure from the race.

If the pressure issue is a safety issue and the FIA allows a car to race without notifying the team it is in breach of the regulation and it results in an accident and the driver is hurt of killed they are culpable.

If it is not a safety issue then why have the regulation?

If u can take away a win for 0.3 psi in one tyre and you only check one wheel on each of the first four cars on the grid then are you being even handed in the enforcement of the regulation, u should check everyone. You are pursuing the issue after the race? Why after the race if the issue is safety and if any car is dangerous should it not be brought in immediately for a compulsory tyre change?

Why not do every tyre on every car if safety is the real issue?

The FIA is incompetent if this is rule and regulation on an even handed basis. If the real issue is safety it is incompetent and F1, and indeed all motorsport should be taken out of its hands....

At least the ruling made sense even if the 'rule' is a total nonsense.

The first 10 laps were good and then it settled down until the pitstops and then just carried on until the chequered flag. There were a few moments but nothing exceptional. 5 because it's Monza.

6. Pretty lacklustre really. Most of the fun came in the last few laps (Rosberg chasing Vettel, Hamilton's mysterious hurry-up, Williams twins going for it). At least I didn't feel frustrated by having to watch BBC highlights.

Saw the first 17 laps live, had a friend over and decided to play games instead as I felt this was turning in to a standard 2015 race.

Judging by the highlights, looked like I was right. Was a really good race to watch through the highlights, actually. Cut out alot of the nothingness.

Still, only gave it a 4. No real story to the race whatsoever. Kimi got so far then hit a ceiling, Lewis ran away, Vettel couldn't chase. That was that!

An appalling bore fest....Zero points, possibly the last GP I will bother to watch.

If you take away all the hype, the clever TV editing which creates the illusion of impending excitement together with the music to generate atmosphere..... and you're left with a product which no sane person would normally watch.

I'm convinced even cricket, tennis or even golf is more exciting these days.

I don't understand that comment. Surely you're not suggesting that Ferrari have some special right to win the Italian GP?

Gave it nominal 5,but now saving £10 per month saving my Sky Sports F1 fee that is cancelled from next month.Tried hard to persevere,having watched whenever possible from the BBC days to today.McLaren is so woeful,it is embarrassing,and the penalties just make a mockery of the grid,so what else is there to keep the interest going??Lotus up for grabs and may not make Singapore,with Ecclestone threatening Silverstone every year,and now Monza,too is beyond belief.I will watch highlights with the lovely Suzie and EJ and DC,and forget the still terrible Lazenby.BYe bye Sky Sports F1;quite sad it came to this????
