Pretty awful finale that, barely anything happened all race And then Power of all people has the car breaking down on him.
I like Sonoma track, but never been a fan of moving it to the finale. Think it works better when they used to stick something like a big oval such as Fontana as the finale. But Pagenaud was a class apart today and all season, throughly deserved the title. As you say, Rahal gave it a go near the end. Did well in the last few races to salvage his season with a 5th overall.
Overall, this season had some good races, but by recent season standards, it wasn't quite as exciting as normal. But hey ho, hopefully next season will be closer. 6 month long break for them now!
