... I thought "Boogie Nights" was the code words given to Hamilton, when he is permitted to use Party Mode in Bahrain or Singapore???  :confused:

I just watched the highlights and I hadn't realised that Ferrari actually messed up twice in trying to maximise points for Vettel and thereby losing points for the team. The first were the team orders. It probably cost the team 4th place.

Second was the last lap when RBR pulled in Gasly to get the point for fastest lap. Ferrari should have covered this and called in Leclerc who would surely have beaten Gasly's time, but that risked taking the point for fastest lap from Vettel and giving it to Leclerc. Instead they lost it to another team!!!

Terrible calls from Ferrari for the team as a whole. They deserve to have a washout season on this form.

Autosport/Gerry Anderson (who already had a bee in his bonnet about Binotto having to do too much) is already suggesting that pressure is piling on Ferrari's Team Principal.

Of course it is - pressure always mounts on a Ferrari team principal who isn't winning, especially when it can't easily be pinned on a specific other party.

Unfortunately, I feel Ferrari is in a readjustment period and is slightly in denial about it. It's not in a position to rush that process because this would require it to acknowledge the pre-season ideas of how things will work won't hold (an idea it liked and doesn't quite want to admit can be replaced with a better option). The thing must take its course - even if that course gets ugly. Even if I - and probably most people in this thread - could state with confidence what the new plan needs to look like. Sorry.
