Complete Zzzzzzz fest.

Lovely setting but the race was a let down, mainly due to Hamiltons departure. I fear the racing now takes second place to the Wow factor of the track. There seems to be an ever growing trend to see who can come up with the best unique gimmick. These newer tracks just don't provide the spectacle of racing the older more established tracks have.

yep, everyone jizzing on about how great the venue is... two hundred thousand million pounds spent on build a weirdly shaped hotel and a marina... oh, and don't forget to stick a race track in there someplace too... ya know... if it's not too much trouble... and as long as it doesn't mess up the asthetic....

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz....

I think the attack of Button on Webber in the last laps was pretty cool for a race finish on Yas Marina :)

The tracks for certain. As has been proven many times this season, the series is not boring, spectacular overtaking at some points this season.

The cars, mostly. They could overtake on a track like Australia at the start of the season which was never an easy thing to do.
But the double diffuser was brought in and screwed everything up from then on imo.

If you want to see more fights, you need more agressive drivers in F1.

This race was quite nice and entertaining in my opinion! I liked the battle between Kobajasi and Button the best! This was the second race of this guy and he did a pretty good job now! Don't forget he started behind Raikkönen!
The battle between Button and Webber was also nice!

btw, did anyone get a view of the Yas Marina GP in HD yesterday? it was said that this is a trial F1 HD broadcast in prep for next year season...

i've got no HD subscription on my cable, so if someone has and watch the race, please tell us if it was really significant over the reguler SD or not?
