Rate the race - United States 2014 // How did the action at the Circuit of the Americas grab you?

Published by Christine

The Russian race left us on something of a downer, with the average rating struggling to get above the 1 star mark. I try not to sway the voting, but I reckon this weekend we might see something a little bit higher than that. The US Grand Prix is always hotly anticipated, and the COTA track tends to offer up some interesting racing, but that's for you to decide - how do you rate the 2014 edition of the race?

With the lingering effects of a less good Russian race, plus controversial talk of boycotts and the dire state of F1's finances, what the sport needed was a good race. Now's your chance to discuss whether it managed to deliver or not. We had lead changes, interesting strategies, and plenty of scrapping in the middle of the field - but did it all add up to a great event? Cast your vote now, with one star for a poor effort and five starts for a top notch race.

Meanwhile, it's hard to pick just a handful of drivers from the finishing order because they all put on a pretty impressive show. There was some great scrabbling for position in the midfield, and some of those fights went right to the very last lap. Can you pick out a driver of the day from the below, or do you think it should go to someone not on the list?
