"The racing was good, people loved it. Nothing silly happened, which is what we want to see." That was the assessment of ABB FIA Formula E championship leader Jerome D'Ambrosio following last weekend's event in Rome.
It was a race of notable high quality, the first lap aside, filled with intrigue and a close fight for the win. But it could all have been so different had something 'silly' come to pass.
When Jaguar's Mitch Evans made what would go on to be the race-winning move on DS Techeetah driver Andre Lotterer, he exploited a better run out of the Turn 10 right-hander to get his car alongside his rival's going into the upcoming first chicane at Turns 11/12.
