well, if they have so many overtakes it seems as if the first 60 overtakes mean nothing. they could just drive 1/5 of the time they do and would still have 15 overtakes and a photofinish.
that is exactly one reason why i find it so boring. 88 passes for the lead? why exactly did i have to see the first 80? in f1, a driver needs rounds to overtake someone who has also a good car, that's tension. you hope for rounds that your favourite driver will surpass the guy in front of him. if they would change the lead all the time i would know that i just have to watch the last minutes.
that's also a reason why football (soccer) is so popular on this planet. it's so exciting because one goal can be enough in 90 minutes.
