Like most races, plenty of dull laps but a few moments of excitement.

I do feel that the pre race efforts added significantly to the proceedings.  I enjoyed seeing Bolt go for a ride with Hamilton, and I very much enjoyed Michael Buffer introducing the drivers.  It gave the proceedings a little more energy.  I think having Bill Clinton there also brought everything up an extra level.  (I'm also sure that Clinton's presence was enough to remove any ideas of Lewis kneeling during the anthem)

Heroes:
Lewis, with a pole and a win, it's an easy one.  The team did take a risk, and it paid off.  The best teams take a phenomenal amount of risks to win, you've got to be good to be lucky, and lucky to be good.

Vettel.  Started and finished second.  Made a great pass on Lewis early on, but just didn't have the car/strategy to win.

Max.  An entertaining race, too bad his pass on Kimi put a blemish on it.

Zeroes:
On track, there were a few times where drivers might have made slight errors in judgement, I don't feel any one really 'screwed up'.  20 drivers with good, tough, mature races gives me hope for the future of the sport.

Renault and Honda:  the turbo V6s hybrid units aren't 'new', and haven't been for a while.  Make the engines finish the race first, then make them fast.  Having Alonso and Ricciardo bumping around with the top 5 would have been very exciting.

Honourable Mention:  President Clinton.  I'll avoid getting too political, but this is a guy who understands how the world works, and what it takes to make it work better.  Listening to him talk about F1, he's either been very well informed, or really understands why the sport is so great.  Lending his prestige to F1 racing has to be a good thing for the future of the sport in the USA.

Without seats available at Ferrari, Mercedes or Red Bull, I don't think many people are surprised Alonso is sticking it out with McLaren.

My guess is that Renault (the team) will outperform McLaren:  they're more familiar with the engine and have been developing a stable technical team.

I think the most interesting team next year will be Haas.  They started stronger than most expected last year, but now seem to be on target.  Surely they are expecting consistent Q3 appearances and some sniffs at the podium.

It's going to be a tough year for McLaren in 2018, but hopefully a competitive one.  It would be nice to see Alonso making a difference again.

Robert Wickens is leaving Mercedes at DTM to join Schmidt Peterson Motorsports to partner fellow Canadian James Hinchcliffe.  It's the first all Canadian line up in IndyCar since 2004.

This summer, for the first time in 60 years, I didn't go to Columbus Motor Speedway. That's because it was shut down last September. It was in the Columbus suburb of Obetz. That village forced it to close so that they could expand the training facility of the Major League Soccer Columbus Crew. The Who? Crew demanded it. A sad end to a great track that had been around since the late 1940's.

Now, one year later, Crew owner Anthony Precourt says he will move the team to Austin Texas if the city of Columbus doesn't build him a new, taxpayer funded downtown stadium. Right now, they play in a taxpayer funded, soccer-only stadium just north of downtown at the Ohio Expo Center.

Don't let the door hit you in the backside on your way out, Tony. May you do to Austin what you did to Columbus.  |-(

Surely it was a close run thing for Seb with Mark Webber!

I guess the amusing radio playouts sealed it
