Refuelling ban = slow start, no overtaking, slow finish. No one wants to step out of line, not to damage the tyres and ruin the rest of run.
This is not racing. IFA and Bernie are making bad decisions.

just watched the first race in Bahrain and it was as dull as ditchwater-the extra weight caused by the re-fuelling ban has made the cars just one long procession and from a viewer point of view a hell of a lot less entertaining-during the race I went into the kitchen made a sandwich and a coffee came back and guess what? no changes in the running order!!!

That's funny to read all the above posts as most of the time posters say that racing is dull compared to what it was in the 60s and 70s (when there was no refuelling nor tyres change expected)!!!
Alain Prost is right, lets not judge on one race!

Had expected so much for this first race and it was as BLOODY BORING as you could get. If they don't do something to get cars to overtake F1 has had it, sick of watching processional races, at least refuelling allowed for some kind of added drama.

What the hell is motor racing if you can't overtake unless the car in front has some kind of problem.
Get rid of the aero crap and let them race like the old days.

It was a *very* dull race, and after the first lap --like many people -- I lost interest.

My first live F1 race was Silverstone 1965 (Jim Clark vs Graham Hill). The big difference between the 60s/70s and now is that in those days the crude aerodynamics encouraged slipstreaming and overtaking (there were some fantastic races at Monza!).

With no refuelling and modern aero design, F1 is limited to being a procession. Very sad.

But World Superbikes are looking fantastic this year! :)
