No sign of a battle for a win, though.

A word for those knocking Mr. Alonso: he was looking quite racy during a lot of the race; it's just that his car was a load of crap.
the Honda engine is awful at the moment but think its not like they are doing it on purpose.guess having only 1 team using the power unit means they are maybe not getting enough feedback.didn't Redbull go through this a few years back with the under proforming Renault package.

the grandprix was ok yesterday but still to much over taking is done in the pitstop's rather than great wheel to wheel racing at the front and seems Bottas and Kimi are happy to follow team order's.

Shame the cameras didn't stick on Putin and Bernie, way more interesting than the race so far.

Well, I'm really glad I wasn't paying Sky to watch that. Everything happened on lap 1. Okay, a first win for Bottas, so something for him to celebrate, but tedious for the rest of us.

Bottas was great at the start but atleast its not just both Mercs running away race after race like the last 3 years.we really need Red Bull to sort themselves out,most dissapointing team with what was expected.we didn't even get Fernando moaning on the radio for the whole race this time.

MotoGP certainly puts F1 in the shade. That was one of the best Moto3 races ever in Spain today, lots of action in Moto2 and Pedrosa kept his streak of at least one win per season in MotoGP going.
A great way to spend the morning and early afternoon!

All the above for me, plus a fair bit of Touring Cars as well.

Same here, although Touring Cars are on a when I can basis.

Our British hero mugged at the start of the Spanish GP by the dastardly German, who stayed ahead after his second tyre-stop by sticking his elbows out. But our hero got past on faster tyres.
A win for Louie Samilton and his team mate got the crap car for once! Makes a nice change.
