Decent race at a decent track with some story lines that kept me watching til the end. 6 plus 1 for Fernando relaxing in Perc Ferme.

"Terrible. Awful circuit. Dreadful cars. Idiot drivers.", " Snorefest.", "it was a bit ho-hum.", "Watching paint dry!", "not a great race".
I must have watched a different race. or, I guess I'm old school and need less than just fluff to see some good driving and engineering (maybe there should be BoP-ing in F1. The opening wings aren't enough for some, apparently)

"With the Halo next year,I think I will give up on F1 ,as I find FormulaE quite entertaining!!!"
See ya!!! I think that says it better than my comment above. Spec, that's the answer, eh? Like IndyCar. A wonderful, choreographed "show" for the masses.

The race had suspense throughout. An 8 from me, 9 & 10 reserved for the (hopefully) very few times happens what those above expect from every race to fulfill that need for immediate satisfaction. Yes, saved for those very special moments that happen ever so rarely.
If it were so every weekend, what would be the challenge, the excitement?

Your response entirely valid and point made jc, but I suspect that Adam's post was classic Adam, taking the mick out of those who actually espouse the views he expressed.

I gave the race a 6 but there was some interest there particularly with the antics and tactics of the top 3 teams.

I must confess to watching both F1 and Formula E. I can't help feeling that 20 years down the line, provided technical developments have created batteries which allows the cars to go full race distance on full power, they may well be one and the same, preferably on the GP circuits though rather than some of these tight city street circuits.

I don't wish to be gone, but, I won't prefer that....

Silence is golden but I prefer internal combustion...

(edit: I knew a John Turner here in South Florida 15ish years ago. 'Gave me a Stirling photo. 'One and the same perhaps? PM me...)

Ah well maybe they will fit sound amplifiers to the electric motors creating an ear splitting shriek - just saying!

Never been to Florida, jc, although Moss is still my favourite driver of all time (which also gives my age away!)

'Right behind you. Let's race around a table a few laps... As in NASCAR, I suggest a "competition yellow" half way thru to re-boot our cane tips...wouldn't want to spin out rounding the table ends. ('Can't afford any spills as we've lost Sid Watkins )
Obviously, Jimmy was my guy. 'Might have been Stirling if I was a tad older...excuse me...if he was a tad younger.

A pleasure making your acquaintance...
