I bought something red, ugly and horrible in many ways. A few good qualities too though, it's roomy, inspected not too long ago, and it was somewhat cheap. Actually I got it a few weeks back already,...

Yesterday a Testarossa, today a 300SL roadster, both red. It's nice to work close to the biggest car and traffic museum in the country, I see old classics a lot more often than I usually would. I...

I agree that Hill doesn't deserve the heavy criticism. F1 is still sports though, in some way at least, and in sports it's typical to let fanaticism surpass rational thinking. Nothing new to anyone...

Mercedes has decided not to appeal the penalty, as the stewards had understood their interpretation of the situation.

So, as far as I understand, it was a safety car finish. According to Mercedes,...

I think it's somewhat relevant because if the race control intended to restart racing and allow passing, and the stewards knew of it, they wouldn't have penalized Schumacher in the first place.

But surely there's conversation between the stewards and race control during the race? I would at least assume that the stewards are aware of the actions of race control, such as flagging green here.

Let's not distort things. This isn't about Ferrari or Alonso asking for a special rule, the regulations state that "if the race ends whilst the safety car is deployed it will enter the pit lane at...

That would be my guess too. In which case I think the best solution would be to return Schumacher between Alonso and Rosberg. If that's even possible by the rules, a 0.3 second penalty would be a bit...

Alonso will not participate in the qualifying, so that crash really cost him. Massa was very close to sliding to the wall too, albeit with less speed.

Should be an interesting qualifying, as usual...

Maybe you got it mixed up with Virgin, Glock had an upgraded car with a longer wheelbase amongst other things, Di Grassi didn't. Both Rosberg and Schumacher were running a longer wheelbase and new...

No. Maybe due to it's quality that video doesn't show it very well, but Vettel did significantly steer to the right pushing Hamilton towards the pit boxes. I agree that Hamilton should have been...
