I thought it was going to warm up but frankly it never did. Both tyre options were too conservative, though understandably so. I still think the circuit is fundamentally a good one for generating errors and for overtaking, but there certainly wasn't much of the latter today. 4.
I went with an 8 (which probably makes me the most excited person on these forums) because I thought it was great. Admittedly not a whole lot of action going on but that's not the fault of the circuit, they just need to clean it up and I'm sure they will, they are really passionate about motorsport and the atmosphere was great.
I went for a 6 as I thought it a bit dull. I have to say long before the race I wasn't expecting much but having heard and read some rave reviews I was expecting so much more. Without the hype I think I would have been pleasantly surprised but alas not.
I gave it a 5. I think that the track needs a couple of races to "bed in".
I could really feel my Tikka going, as they all pilau'd into the first Korma, and Massala trying to Bhaji Hamilton off the track, I thought oh my Gosht, what a dopiaza, he is going to have a phall from grace if he is not careful.
Other than that, the race was a bit of a procession, and although there was some interesting mid field action, I think we have had many far better races this year.
