I didn't think it was so poor. Lots of little bits of action and interest. It would have been a 5 but the last 5 minutes pushed it up to a 6.

There was battling through the midfield, which is close anyway, and also helped by Grosjean’s different pit call.

And yes, when something dramatic happens it does make it more exciting. That’s sport.

No, I’m not wanting punctures all the time. Or bad things. That’s not the point being made.

They are a crucial element and over the years I've seen the outcome of a race determined by the tyres.

I quite enjoyed it because Silverstone is such a sweeping circuit to enjoy witnessing an F1 car around and there were some tense battles. Glad Ocon finally got past Stroll. 7.

It is a good track, isn’t it. You can really stretch the legs of these cars there. 145mph average.

Eight for me. Lots of action, but I do miss the crowds.

I gave it an overall 8, but obviously by comparison with everyone else on here, I'm easily satisfied.The mid-race train was continually interesting even if not super-exciting. Then it all went crazy at the end. I wouldn't want every race to have some silly drama like that, but once in a while it adds to the spectacle.

7. Bit processional at times, but had enough going on to keep me interested and last few laps really added to it

It sure added some much needed excitement, to what was not a very exciting race.

I would have voted '1' if not for the end of race tyre entertainment. Up until then it was duller than a grey summers day in Northants (or Bucks).

Everyone seems to think a race isn't interesting if there isn't a tooth and nail battle for the race lead......but I find the mid-field scraps as interesting (particularly those between team mates), as well as enjoying, at Silverstone, the sheer mind-blowing speed of the cars.....they are covering the lap quicker than I can the International circuit, and the corners where they have a lift and maybe a dab of the brakes when we are well on the brakes and down at least a gear just leaves me in awe.......


The drama of the last few laps gave it an extra frisson, I guess, but I still would have rated it fairly high - gave it an 8. Interestingly I note despite the whingeing, over 50% of ratings were 7 or 8
