Well we already got that last race in a way and drivers probably asked that question themselves, Lewis probably thought about that in his last stint. Amazing to see that he never bothered Kimi. We now have drivers asking, what lap time they have to do, number of laps needed before pitting, whether they can overtake or not, whether to race other drivers, and drivers at end of race sounding like all they done is drive around by themselves all race long.It is getting rather silly when you have drivers asking if they can race the guy in front or not. Most of the passes today weren't even fought, the driver being passed didn't bother because of, you guessed it, his tyres. As said above all of the drivers were just driving to their own schedule and if another car came up in that schedule they had to ask if they were allowed to fight them. Silly.
I am surprised people are finding this exciting. This kind of 'racing' is so strange to see as it is like some kind of extreme endurance racing style, quite surreal to see. This race I had to question myself, what am I watching .
DRS was OK, problem is drivers are unlikely to fight each other for position if on different strategy of if car getting past is slightly better on tyres. Vettel couldn't get past Hulkenburg using DRS IIRC.The DRS zones were too long, which didn't help. The overtaking was a given, I don't recall seeing a failed DRS-assisted overtake attempt.
