OK, it's a little over half-term, as we're eight races into a 14-race season, but I'm paid to write, not add up. And besides, I didn't want to report that after seven rounds we'd only had two race winners.
Hell, even Formula One had had more than that.
Still, after the first few rounds of the Champ Car season, some of the media began to wonder if we'd even have two winners.
At Long Beach, many onlookers felt resigned. Sebastien Bourdais, double and reigning champion, had walked it. RuSPORT looked as far away from nailing a decent raceday streetcourse set-up as ever - Justin Wilson's fastest lap had been almost a second slower than the winner's.
