Very poor race to be honest with a very silly Perez being the only real excitement, so gave it 3

Yep, really very dull (and yes, I did drop off several times). Not really much to see after the opening laps and Max's pit stop other than Perez continuing to outstay his welcome in F1.....

Lewis called Singapore, Monaco on steroids. From his perspective I don't doubt him but as a race, it was far from it. 3.

I gave it a generous 3. I watched the race in a bar and almost fell asleep.

Being from the days where second might be a lap behind the winner, I gave it a 7 as I usually do. I save higher (or lower) for those really special occasions.

'In my 60s and still have an attention span of more than an apple and wonder why so many expect a nose to nose race all the time or else consider the sport rubbish.... We're still seeing the best minds building and developing the best machines; and the best teams and drivers getting the most out of them. Of course on most days the racing won't be close. On many, the fields will be spread out. As they should.

The fields are closer than ever and there's still complaining. I don't understand....

Wanting contrived "exciting racing" all the time, all one needs to do is watch NASCAR, IndyCar, or BoPed sportscars. A shame that many want not to see the best shine in favor of supposed "excitement". Isn't that nearly exciting as "scripted" entertainment one can find in the theatre or on the "tube"? I guess I answer my own question.
Of course, to each his own.

I gave it two since based on JC's comments above, it was close down the field but the top six did little to spice things up. Have to say Lewis was superb and deserved the win but as Max said in the post race chat they had, Lewis simply controlled the pace.

"Lewis simply controlled the pace."

Simply? That's fantastic to watch. One of the best, in one of the best, doing the best. To witness excellence does not necessarily mean excitement.

This boring bag of slop gets 2 from me - 1 because it looks cool at night, and 1 for Sirotken for giving the commentators something to talk about.

6 from me, because I didn't turn over to watch the BTCC and enjoyed watching Hamilton dictate the race, even when RoGro tried to trip him up.

As soon as I voted (7) and saw the results pop up, I thought "Here we go again".

It wasn't wall-to-wall excitement but the only really tedious bit was watching them go round behind the safety car. Max v Seb was good. Perez enlivened things (but shouldn't have). Sirotkin gave us a brilliant defensive drive (I hope all the DRS-knockers were pleased with that). The blue flag drama spiced up the question of the lead for a while. There was mixed tyre strategy and we were wondering which would work. And then there was the sheer spectacle of watching some of the best drivers in the world driving between walls with such precision.
