I would never expect Barcelona to be a humdinger, but watching the Spanish Grand Prix is a whole lot better than many alternatives (I'd already mowed the lawn).

The safety car spoilt things as usual and seemed to be completely unnecessary. The so-called virtual safety car (how about calling it a safety speed limit?) would have been sufficient. I watched the C4 highlights so naturally they jumped through the safety car period but it looks like 10% of the race was lost just to clear up a couple of lightly damaged cars.

The delay was because of the gravel spread across the circuit.

Yes - I remember Hamilton referring to it over team radio.

If it had just been cars stranded, particularly off track, I would imagine a VSC brings the speed of passing cars down enough to reduce the risk.
In the case of items on track that require removal, a full SC is typically needed to bring the pack together, creating a gap in traffic that allows marshals to go onto the track surface safely.

Watched the highlights and fells asleep, knew the result so 50 yards in I knoew who the winner was.

To be honest if you scrounged 1% of enjoyment from this, paid for it in any way be it live or Sky, I feel sorry for you.

As you really have no idea what good can be found in the world if motorsport

You could have watched ELMS and/or Blancpain Endurance instead.

Brutal race. I happened to be staying at a lodge with a couple of co workers who attend Nascar races. I had the race on while we were having breakfast before heading out to work and I never heard the end of it. They can't believe I watch F1. I was mocked the whole race....like the commentary about having to leave space for a driver to pass or face a possible penalty. They could not stop laughing!

Anyway, it was a tough morning...

To be fair NASCAR is not the all singing all dancing series of the world, passing there is almost as routine there as not passing is in F1.
