Before the FIA starts tinkering with the regs to stop team tactics they should first look seriously at why the team felt compelled to take the action. I say again that it can't be right that the 2nd spot on the grid can be worse to start from than 3rd, but that's just what we had in Austin.
Don't forget this year's grip issue exacerbated by a number of factors: not only a new track with no rubber laid down; but also dusty due to recent construction, oily due to it being recently laid, over-conservative tyre choice making for less grip at the start and also lower ambient temperatures than were expected. It's just a number of symptoms coming together at a new track – that's racing. Weather aside I think next year will prove less problematic.
The main issue for me isn't the variables listed above, its the fact that someone can gain a grid position in this manner. I think Ferrari would have done this even if there were no track grip issues - simply to bump him up a place. That needs addressing.
