Do you think so? I got rather bored, as the top drivers could barely overtake each other.

Have you tried pubs?

Naburu38: Probably because the leaders were strung out although Newgarden and Dixon had a good battle.

Rossi's car dumped oil along the frontstretch.

3.8kms of marbles. That's a lot of marbles.

I think they wanted to take an extra few laps to get through the pit window. Had they gone green a couple laps earlier, we might have had a lot of splash and goes at the end. I think that went into their decision.

I would have much preferred some splash and dash, rather than cars droning around under the yellow.

Me too, and if that was part of their decision, I don't like that they were manufacturing a finish. But for the spectacle of the ending, I think they would have rather not have had splashes for some cars and not others determining the end. And let's face it, if it came down to that, Dixon would have won for sure, anyway, lol.
