joker97: Ok i was wrong, it rained, albeit just before the race, and it was still boring. You could count all passing on slicks with one hand. Ok maybe that's exaggerating but man!
That answers my question, I was away and had recorded the race. I was going to ask if it was still worth watching...
I recorded it also, and then opted to record the half hour highlights.
Watching that back, I couldn't believe how many laps it jumped where they didn't deem it had anything of merit for the highlights reel.
Was super excited to see the rain, and then they did 5 (or 6?) laps behind the safety car. Might as well call the wet tyres the safety car tyres now.
Exactly, was stupid. They have wet tyres. If you spin out, you drove too fast, same rules as in the dry. That cost us the thrills and spills of turn 1 and the next few. So, it was quite predictable. Track position ruled.
