I don't really understand Horner's relationship with Vettel post RBR, but doesn't he have a fabulous girlfriend who should keep him busy every moment between races?  Why bother stirring up things.  There is no apparent fact behind his comments, just a funny feeling he has.  Thanks for that Christian. 

Realistically I can't imagine a driver wanting to commit to anything in 2018 until they see how the engine formula in 2017 shakes out among the teams.  Maybe Mercedes will blow it, and have a dog for the next few years.  It would kind of suck to have signed a contract so early.

The week is getting brighter and brighter.  I can see holding off starting a race when there is running water across a track or standing water in a corner or on an unavoidable racing line, but otherwise gentlemen, start your engines.

Apparently the Russians are hacking not just the Dem's emails...they have found some inside info on RBR and STR, and the little birdie is suggesting Kvyat may have only the rest of this season left, if that.

Monza just signed a 4 year, 88 million deal with Bernie's Accounts Receivable clerk.  Glad it is staying in Monza, but I hope the FOM has added some upgrade clauses that are for something other than the Paddock Club...no, why would they?

What the heck?  Jeez Jos, that's elder abuse and you should be locked up for a decade or two if it's true.  Too bad he dropped the charges.  What kind of short fuse does a guy have, to beat up an elderly man, no matter how grumpy or ornery he may have been? 

I feel sorry for Max, in one of the most important stages of his career to be upstaged by a bully dickhead Dad.  I hope RBR bans Jos from the races.

Me too.  I usually think of Perez as a bit of a bully on the track (mind you this year he is behaving properly, and his karma is treating him well as a result), but I am pleased to see him come to Kimi's defence.

http://www.pitpass.com/56875/Perez-calls-for-clarification-on-defending

Hamilton's whining about Rosberg blowing through yellows could be a bit hypocritical though...the boys at J13 point out that Hamilton did the same thing in '14. 

What shocked me is Whiting, a man who's opinions on safety I loathe, had given drivers yellow flag clarifications.  For a single yellow, they must demonstrate a .2 second sector differential from their best sector speed, while for double waved yellows, a half second.  How slowing by half a second per sector from their best speed could possibly bring an F1 car to a tempo allowing it to stop suddenly, if necessary is beyond me.  Most drivers are racing a few tenths down from their best sector for most of the race, so in a sense they are still full on race speed.  Seems WAY too little of a lift to me.  Whiting, you are a moron.

..for 2017, while Vettel offers up a plea in its defence.

The windscreen would have the advantage of being able to (hopefully) prevent small, but hard objects from flying into the cockpit to strike a driver (a la Massa's accident).  The halo would prevent bigger things like wheels or even barriers from making contact with a drivers head. 

However this whole safety direction is the result of the Bianchi accident, where I don't think either solution would have had much effect on the outcome.  Prevention of a similar accident to that is really quite simple.  Do not allow tractors on the track to retrieve a stranded car unless it is on an inside corner, well away from the track, or a Safety Car has come onto the track and is leading a field running at less than half racing speed while the tractor goes to work.  Wake up FIA, that is the simplest way to prevent another Bianchi type accident.  And who is to say the Halo or some reinforced windscreen could possibly absorb the force needed to lift a 12 ton tractor off the ground like Bianchi's car did.
