Sepang in the rain and twilight not a good choice
I feel more than a little cheated that we did not get a full race this Sunday. My understanding is that the late start was due to the requirement to get a larger television audience in Europe. Well that back fired big time…..
All of the locals kept saying you are going to get rain, and by rain they meant a monsoon, but somehow Bernie and the boys thought not??? Well Bernie you are not God and you have no control over the elements. What we need urgently is to see if in fact viewership stats were higher in Europe than last years race. If not then there is going to be some serious egg on the face! I am going to be bold here and say that I do not think that there would have been any appreciable increase in the numbers. If there was a more than 5% increase then they would have been a lot.
The race was still however actioned packed until the point that it was stopped and the Brawn team must be like the proverbial Cheshire cat with huge smiles. They certainly deserved the win…
It is really good to see the old guard Ferrari and Mclaren facing the prospect of an uphill battle for the rest of the season. I am hoping that it will bode very well for the sport. I think that progress will be made and we are going see maybe one of the closest contents we have ever seen with potentially four or five teams racing for the main titles.
