But tbh, the race was boring. Almost no overtakings, the first 100 laps seemed to be all about fuel saving, no one wanting to lead the race and no one going flat out.
Then all of a sudden for the last 30 laps everything changed and it got unpredictable and exciting.
So different from Euro style racing.
As someone who was a spectator yesterday, this statement is very true. The second half of the race was much, much faster than the first. Sounds weird - but you could feel it.

I was in shock at how many cars had issues entering the pits. Also Rahal's wheel incident...that must be absolutely devastating.
