  • There was a lot of orange in those stands. They were cheering because what was bad for Merc was good for Max.

    I am a little confused as to why there would be Mercedes branding in front of the Red Bull stand. Surely that's a conflict of sponsorship?

  • I cannot believe the FIA has a rule about how long you can take to release the clutch. Surely that should be something the driver controls at his option. Especially in a wet start and especially since the FIA is talking about milliseconds. Ridiculous.

    The ideas are to prevent the clutch being used as a driver aid and reduce the risk of stalling (which can cause startline multi-car crashes). Neither of which is as much of a problem in the rain, but still...

  • Back from China too late to see the race live so I watched the recording last night.
    I have to agree with many comments here.
    My over-riding feeling is; what a shame that we need rain enforced chaos to get people talking about an 'exciting race'!
    I was really happy to see Williams get a point but at the same time disappointed that the Alfa's had to get penalised for this to happen.
    I think there should be more positive comments for Hamilton. He was simply driving away from the rest of the field despite clearly being unwell. It was only bad strategy calls that put him under enough pressure to cause the minor crash. Then there were more bad strategy calls and a completely stupid and unjust penalty that stopped him getting further towards the front. I know rules are rules but it was impossible for him to go to the right of the pit entry bollard and the alternative would have been to drag a damaged car around the track for a full lap. He did the safest thing and did not gain an advantage. Why penalise him (especially when they had not penalised (the driver) when Ferrari made an unsafe release and ruined Grosjeans race.
