7 - Watching how strategies would work out. Was really wondering if Norris would catch Max. But even more, what if Norris NOT had pitted. Then Max needed to be one second a lap faster.

9/10

Superb win. It has taken long time, but I think we have seen a race worth watching.

7. First lap was great, kind of processional after that. Some interesting strategies in play. In the end, while the cars are now much closer, it does appear that one still has the edge and will continue to win more often than not for the rest of the year.

A few interesting parts here or there, a lot of dull stuff in between I felt.

I've seen a lot worse Spanish GPs so you would have to say the track and F1 is improving. However it's a max 5/10

What has changed in F1 is that the combination of cars and drivers getting equal in pace. The differences are now made in, tire degradation, the balance of the cars at any fuel load. Some cars are good at the start of the stint, some come alive in the second half of the stint.

Formel1.de
Schumacher considers it's "clear" that "Red Bull would have a big problem without Max Verstappen at the moment because he is taking the car where it shouldn't be. And that also shows how difficult it is for Perez now. When they were one second ahead of everyone else, it wasn't a problem at all."
Now we are waiting on (alledged) magic big CEO CH can produce. Talk is cheap, and there was plenty of it, now he has to show us in tangiable terms how it's now. Well good luck. Error in design was committed about 3 years ago with Newey actively on board. It's now two years car is a sick puppy.

CH was pretty good at picking up the pieces of Jaguar Ford and make it a winning team again. Of course, Newey was a big factor too, but nowadays, they have more very good engineers at RBR. They need to solve a mechanical problem. The car does not like high curbs.

For that, I think you have to wait until 2026. Current prototype is gone beyond repair. Vehicle needs to be redesigned from ground up. (Dr. Marko.)

5 for me. Some excitement, some differing strategies, some close racing, but overall a normal result.
