    Didn't watch it. Seemed a non-event as pretty much nothing was written on here during the race!

    Best Driver: Bottas, he won
    Worst Driver: Hulk, finished behind Palmer I hear. No idea why but pretty embarrassing all the same
    Best Rookie/New Driver: Ocon, I have assumed he finished in the points
    Best Team: Ferrari
    Surprise Team: No idea
    Worst Team: Probably McLaren
    Best Overtake: Got the feeling there weren't any

    Most Surprising Result: Only 1 page of comments on the race here
    Least Surprising Result: Assumed McLaren failures
    Funniest moment:
    Excuse of the week:

    Special Mention: Me, saving two hours of my life not watching it.

    Best Driver: Bottas
    Worst Driver: Kvyat
    Best Rookie/New Driver: Stroll
    Best Team: Pound for pound, probably Williams
    Surprise Team: Williams
    Worst Team: Sauber, although Kvyat made a good claim for Toro Rosso!
    Best Overtake: Race notes lost but thanks for the reminder, Big Ern: Ricciardo.

    Most Surprising Result: Palmer. This will probably turn out to be his best race in F1. Hamilton qualifying below par.
    Least Surprising Result: Alonso retirement.

    Special Mention: Split 50:50: Grosjean did very well; and Bottas quietly getting on with the job – as well as best handling of the press. Also, I'll take this opportunity to declare my belief that Bottas is a title contender. Mercedes will allow it. Ferrari on the other hand, will put eggs all in one basket whenever possible and are quite happy to have Räikkönen – precisely because he's no threat to Vettel. (Ferrari have always prioritised the Drivers' championship more than other constructors).
    Race Rating: 5.94/10
