Martin Brundle has often said in the past is that all Bernie would have to do to make the races more interesting would be to install sprinklers at the circuits. It certainly was an exciting race.
Although I’m sure Martin was half joking it certainly fits in with one of the most common suggestions for improving Formula 1: lowering the grip level in the car by significantly reducing the downforce generated. This would make the cars harder to drive which is clearly exciting and also make overtaking easier.
In the pub fourstar asked me if this was the best race of the season or was their a purity problem due to the weather?
I throw the question open to all. Also adding a related second question: is the best race always the most exciting?
