. Sorry but that has got to be one of the most boring races to the point where I feel None of the cars get close enough to each other at the front to go for an overtake.
They need to change the layout that leads onto the back straight where the tight hairpin does not allow the car behind to maintain speed with the car it tries to catch in front
Then you got the section at the end of the long straight where the tight chicane makes braking difficult and then having lost momentum , you immediately lose it at the end of the next straight
Take a look at Austin if you want to see how to design a new circuit with overtaking opportunities
It was very predictable
is faster than you), and the latest wrestling match between Hulk & Checo. Not much more than a 5 though.
Poor poor poor.
The Pits, really there was plenty of action. just because the top ten in the race were in the same order as they started (except for Ricciardo who retired but had been in the same position up till then) although Alonso rather spoilt it by getting past Massa.
There were some changes in the lower half, Grosjean, who seemed to be involved on every scrap in the race, got past Vandoorne and Stroll (who went backwards), Wehrlein made the overtake of the day, Hartley seemed to get better through the race as he gets more used to F1 and Renault forgot to do up the nuts on one of Sainz's wheels. This nearly became the accident of the day but unfortunately he managed to miss the wall in the tunnel so we didn't have a totally blockage of the pit lane, alas.
Altogether well worth two points of only because it was the final race of the season and the end of a McLaren/Honda era.
Formula 1 bade farewell to 2017 amidst spectacular settings - but a less spectacular race - in Abu Dhabi on Sunday.
