The race is a dream, or rather a hallucination by the time you've been awake for the duration of the race. However, with 24 hours of racing comes 24 hours of drama, incident, and the kind of innocent comment that, in hindsight, becomes the sort of thing the Power Rankings love—perhaps sleep deprivation makes drivers and teams more prone to ill-advised comments?
Anthony Davidson became the least popular person in America, Peugeot surrendered in a typically French manner, and Audi were ruthlessly, well, German.
Of course, Le Mans means I pretty much slept through the Canadian Grand Prix and NASCAR from Michigan—the concensus being I didn't miss much in Michigan, and couldn't have picked a worse F1 race to discover sleep deprivation.
Montreal had bad tyres (Bridgestone) and bad driving (everybody it seems)—what makes F1 great. Sadly the bad weather stayed away.
