Dario couldn't have asked for or done any more this weekend. But as ever, Will Power is right behind him shadowing his every move - something we should surely expect for the next 16 races of 2011 until the championship is decided.

I hope enough people read this brilliant piece of racing journalism. It conveyed the drama and excitement of this event and cleverly highlighted the efforts of many of the participants. Well done, I just hope some of the semi competent ******* currently writing for other publications take note and improve. Thanks again.
