Honestly, I'm happy that we might have a real battle for WDC (and to some extent WCC although I doubt that) on hand and have two different Teams fighting on the same performance level. Strategy decided this one. Races where strategy decides who (or especially which Team) wins are usually the better ones. When was the last time another Team could really fight with the Mercs on pure pace rather than simple luck/misfortune?
Number of overtakes in the Midfield do not make an interesting race for me.
Reading such a comment after three Years of pretty hefty Merc/Lewis dominance made me think of you as a sore Hamilton fan who considers any race boring where Lewis didn't win.
