I think that is really a big part of their early success. Coming from Lights or F3/F2, it's a healthy step-up in power, with good downforce increases. The rookies were probably thinking "Wow - all this power and downforce. COOL!" While the regulars were skating around and having to hit different marks for braking, turn-in and power-down. Except for the full course yellows, it was an entertaining race with beautiful cars.
