"Funniest radio comment of the day was Vettel asking if he needed to pass Button to win the race. Well duh!" The problem with F1 is that genuine passing, (overtaking), is frequently NOT necessary to win the race. Obviously Vettel was asking if Button would be forced to make another stop so that he wouldn't have to overtake him to get past. If I want to see races decided on speed of pit stops and/or strategy I watch endurance racing. Montreal, exceptionally for a dry race, WAS good to watch, but this was only achieved by the ridiculous tyre rule which forces teams to use a compound which doesn't work and would never be used otherwise. This papering over the cracks, rather than fixing the underlying problem, leaves the sport open to ridicule. Someone also needs to tell Coulthard and co. that simply repeating the mantra "F1 is exciting!" doesn't change the usually boring reality.
