|General concensus from the F1 watching public is that the European GP lacked any real excitement. In fact, it is currently being recommended on Twitter as a cure for insomnia. So I hope you will appreciate my lack of enthusiasm to write at length about a snoozeFest.|
Main highlights (the ONLY highlights) were (1) an impressive drive by Jaime Alguersuari to finish 8th from 18th which should stall talks about his imminent replacement by Toro Rosso & Red Bull reserve driver, Daniel Ricciardo and (2) a fantastic F1 concert with David Guetta headlining. The most 'interesting' stat of the day was that it was the first race completed by ALL 24 runners, the highest number of finishers ever. Yes, that's how dull the race was.
Results were: VET, ALO, WEB, HAM, MAS, BUT, ROS, ALG, SUT, HEI, PER, BAR, BUE, DIR, PET, KOB, SCH, MAL, KOV, TRU, GLO, DAM, LIU, KAR.
Next race is Silverstone, now THAT definitely promises be an exciting race.
