I'm about to watch it again because I can't make my mind up. In terms of enjoyment I'm tempted to give it an 8 but I have some concerns about what I actually witnessed.
With regard to the TV producer (and crew) I think he/she did the best job of the season so far and deserves a 10. Why? Because they:
- Caught loads of action and followed it through.
- Great use of the static cameras placed at interesting positions gave us much more of an idea of how fast F1 is with spectacular shots of cars whizzing through the frame.
- Very few of those tedious and pointless slo-mo's at this race than at others where producers get off on ****ing over "still shot F1 porn"
- Very few (almost none) of those boring back of peeps heads shots on pit wall, or peeps in the garages and hospitality suites reacting to what we want to be watching.
Other producers and directors should take note that that is how it should be done so that we, the sofa-bound, can enjoy their product.
I'll get back to you after the re-run!
Oh, by the way WSB and BSB are trying to keep up with F1 this week - prangs and bikes in flames in at least one race each so far today!
Crossing fingers that there will be no fatalities or serrious injuries.
