That is by far the best reason I have read on here this season for (in part) a justification for a rating. I salute you sir for your originality - plus of course your endeavours on the day!

Not the best this season. Only came alive after the two safety car periods. I'll give it a six.

You do a disservice to the sport. Actually enjoying it, that is just not on.

What with it being such a hot day, I bet you were damn glad Ferrari flapped your overalls, when they pitted, any other team and it would have been pants.

I gave it an 8. I thoroughly enjoyed the race although I admit I was forced to miss a chunk of laps after the first half a dozen or so to not long before the first SC.

Y'see, this is where all the big teams get it so wrong. They spend absolute fortunes on CFD & wind tunnel calibrations whereas the best way to measure aerodynamic efficiency is by the amount they make Greem's overall legs flap!

Thanks, you lovely lot.

It was a very long, very hard weekend in terms of the heat. I nearly flaked out on Friday as I just couldn't get cool and the rest of the team on my post (Vale) were similarly struggling.
Luckily we had the Paddock Club Drivers Lounge behind us, and in a fortunate piece of timing the hostesses started handing out ice lollies mid afternoon. We sent one of the guys up the bank to try to blag some and he came back with one for each of us, which perked us up no end!

Despite it being hot, the event itself is something to behold. The place was rammed sideways, the atmosphere amazing, and I got to spend the weekend with some old and some new colleagues and friends doing something we all spend the year doing alone, in the cold, in the pouring rain with nobody within 250 metres. To see Silverstone jumping like it was on Sunday afternoon makes all the cold dark days worthwhile

Only another year to wait for the next one (although there may be a French excursion preceding it next year)!

That was a great grand prix!
Please go watch NASCAR or VASC or formula V or something.
F1 will be destroyed if it is treated to this automatic negative reaction by posters on what is supposed to be an enthusiasts forum.

As Oldtony said, please go watch something other than F1 if you thought that race was dull. Also seek some help with your mental health/depression issues. The negativity on this forum is truly astonishing.


A big 8 from me.

Agreed. There's an astonishing amount of negativity on the DOTR thread towards Vettel at the moment. I worry for the mental stability of the individual(s) who are unwilling to recognise that Vettel deserves credit sometimes.

Another 8 to the list... Emotion on the race, as fans wanted.
Lewis "moral winner" of the race undoubtedly.

I'm going 10.

A fun race enjoyed by a massive crowd. A special thrill for me from seeing a well attended event. Makes me want to watch even more.

My wife has just coined a phrase for this:

The GOLF effect - Greem's Overall Leg Flap
