I very much enjoyed watching that race. When F1 is on, I watch the start, then, once the leader has settled in I don't pay much attention until pit stops get going, then it's a parade to the end unless someone screws up. Which is cool, I guess. I still like it, but don't pay close attention. It's more or less on TV in the background, catching my attention when interesting things happen.
I watched this closely from start to finish, more or less. That's a huge difference in entertaining engagement with fans.
Hated how safety car ruined the ending. After Saudi Arabia I argued that it was no big deal and timed races were necessary. But, two races in a row... well, those arguing for laps have a point. But, the energy usage issue is real for these cars. Bring them into the pits when they'd otherwise use a safety car and they go back out in order that they were on track at the point of SC being called, released with delays equal to the time between the cars when the SC was called.
