Another day, another processional Formula 1 race. Those hoping for a gripping, scintillating French Grand Prix last weekend were instead left taking to various forms of social media to immediately express their displeasure with the events - or lack thereof - that unfolded.
"Formula 1 is dying" screamed multiple tweets, unhelpfully adding to the cacophonous melodrama the post-race Twitter narrative created. As though F1 has never been criticised for being boring.
Admittedly, the Paul Ricard weekend was a rather linear one, and ended as it began: the top five in the opening practice session assumed the same order come the chequered flag.
