Sebastian Vettel's apparent march towards the 2011 F1 title continued in Valencia with a dominant drive giving him a sixth win in eight races this season.
As a result of that victory, Vettel now leads the championship by 77 points, which means he could sit out the next three races and take a summer holiday without losing his lead in the standings.
His rivals have already questioned if the German can now be caught as he looks to take a second straight title for Red Bull but was his performance in Valencia the one that caught your eye in what was, to be fair, one of the less exciting events seen in recent seasons.
We've chosen a few drivers who made an impression during the European Grand Prix but let us know who you think was the star of Valencia.
Led the race from start to finish having secured pole position – again – and always looked in control at the front. Even when Mark Webber and Fernando Alonso were close behind, you just knew Vettel had something in reserve if he really had to push. Surely a second title is his to lose now?
Showed Ferrari's continued improvement with a solid run to second place after a long battle for position with Mark Webber. Made one of the few overtaking moves on track and will now hope that the second half of the season will see a return to the top step of the podium.
Fifth wasn't tbe result Felipe Massa was hoping for after a strong start to the race but the Brazilian played a part in helping Ferrari to its best result of the season. A pit lane issue cost him valuable time and ended hopes of challenging Lewis Hamilton for fourth but was again buoyed by the performance of the Ferrari.
A poor show in qualifying but a strong race saw Alguersuari score points on home soil after a strategy gamble paid off handsomely. Despite his tyres going off late on in the race, he was able to defend from the challenge of the cars behind to finish inside the top ten for the second successive race.
Considering his off-track turmoil, Sutil enjoyed a strong weekend in Valencia to qualify inside the top ten and then secure points for Force India with a solid ninth place finish. A good start to the race was key although the German was left to rue the positioning of the DRS zone as he was unable to pass Alguersuari late on.
Sauber were disappointed not to score in Valencia but Perez should take heart from the way in which he almost made a one-stop gamble pay off for the team. Returning to action after missing Canada, the Mexican was the only man to one-stop and it looked like a mistake when he struggled on his tyres prior to his stop for soft rubber. However, he fought back from that to finish eleventh – just outside the points scoring positions.
