Vettel & Perez. Would have been nice to see Max there too had he not suffered the brake failure.

I didn't notice Perez, fighting as I was with a dodgy internet connection for the first hour of the race, but it seems he did well judging by the comments! I went for Vettel and Alonso. I think Hamilton did a superb charge at the end though and it makes me so happy that these tyres allow drivers to push like that

Perez, Vettel, and few of midfielder who keep swapping position throughout the race.

Vettel and Perez

disappointing:

Good race for the first eighteen laps. After that not much happened apart from the entertaining Alonso-Palmer-Kvyat-Wehrlein battle outside the top 10. The spread among the top 10 in the last 20 laps or so was so clear/big that the final result was set (for everybody who could factor in the remaining pit stops, at least).

This thread in the last couple of races has made me think I'm finding it much harder to follow what's going on from 6th place down this year because there's so much going on at the front.

Vettel was an easy number 1, but after that it was hard to decide as I don't have a good idea in my head of everything that happened further back. Off the top of my head I picked Perez for number 2 for gaining so many places and Massa number 3 for being competitive with a Red Bull and Ferrari for a while.

Taking three drivers from three different F1 divisions my choice would be:

Vettel, Massa, Wherlein.

Vettel, Alonso, and Wehrlien.
Fernando drove out of his mind in the battle for 11th until the his car gave up.

Vettel first star, he did not make any mistakes and put together a solid race. My second choice was Massa, for a guy who had to un-retire, he also executed a mistake-free race.

Vettel to me is the obvious answer, but Pérez and Alonso get my second and third votes. Pérez did a great job climbing up the field, and Alonso executed a lot of nice passes on some faster cars -- even he couldn't keep them with the power deficit. The third choice was the hardest for me; the first two were more obvious. Honorable mentions would go to Wehrlein, Grosjean, and Ocon.

Vettel and Perez. I'm not sure where to go after that, so those are the only two I voted for.

Vettel, Hamilton and Alonso. All showed what the upper limit of their cars were.

Voted for Seb, Massa and Perez.

Seb was obvious, but Massa and Perez because they were very impressive for quite a while until Ric finally took over his 'natural' position.

Vettel was in his own league yesterday. Got ahead of Lewis at turn 1 and then executed flawless race with good pace.
If Bottas was not as slow as he actually was, he would have probably beaten the Mercs by bigger margin in the end.

Gotta feel for Alonso. That was some great racing in a car that was clearly slowest of the bunch in that 3 way battle for almost entire race. That was painful to watch. McLaren Honda is a disgrace to F1 at this point.

Good drives from Mass and Perez as well.

I missed Alonso's "great racing".

As far as I could see stayed pretty much where expected?

He wasn't last, so no, I don't think he stayed where expected. This wasn't as good a race as the first two from him, but fighting a Toro Rosso is certainly punching above that car's weight at present.

You mean Kyvyat who ended P12 - pretty much where Alonso spent his race?

I was considering giving it to Massa, as well. Good race from him. Pity, we do not know how good the car is due to the underwhelming driver duo.

What kept Alonso ahead at times was his skill & clever race-craft! If he's in a slight better car even, he'd always fight for good points.

His racing yesterday indicates that he still has many years left of competitive racing in F1 atleast.

I do think a part of that is the caliber of drivers he's up against down there though. For example, he can take the fight to Palmer in a Renault or to Ocon in a Force India, but he can't race with Hulkenberg or Perez who are doing a better job of getting the most out of their respective cars.
