Bruno Senna is a dick.

Uh, not sure why? Buemi was the one who kept hitting him - sure, he was maybe a bit overzealous with his defending, but Buemi never really got far enough alongside to the point where Senna should give up the position. Would've preferred that Buemi won it, but it's his own damn fault for pushing too hard on cold tyres.

IIRC Buemi got along side on the last lap and Senna just kind of shoved him to the point where Buemi would have hit the wall. I might have said this out of wanted Buemi to win the title and it happening so soon, to be fair.

At the start of the move, Buemi also forced Senna nearly into the outside wall. Senna then proceeded to take his racing line which the car in front is permitted and has the right to do so.

Highlights from the 2015 Beijing ePrix (race 1 of the 2015-2016 season):



Spoilers for the race below.

2015 Beijing ePrix:
Not quite the thrilling finish that we saw in 2014, but it was a pretty good race among the rest of the leaders, even though Buemi ran away with the win.

I think that removing the first chicane actually improved the circuit quite a bit.

Yeah was honestly a very good race, the new caution rules are a tad weird and need to be worked on but hopefully they'll fix that up.

One of the big storylines coming out of the race is the fact that the Trulli team missed the race entirely, they might miss Malaysia.
