Exactly, second and third is the same as third and second. (Not to the drivers, obviously.)Damn good race.
Not fussed about Webber being told to hold the gap. Red Bull is interested in as many points for the constructor's championship as possible. Vettel 2nd/Webber 3rd means the same thing to them as Webber 2nd/Vettel 3rd. With that few laps remaining just make sure they cross the line and don't throw both cars into the wall.
what was said, we dont get much for interviews either pre or post race. all we really get here is someone on the grid before the start and what ever interview he can get during the race from drivers who retired or something and the press conference after as well.McLaren needs to work on their code, every blatant thing they said aired.
That's why he's talking about speaking in a 'code', for example, engage the teddy bear drive would mean setting the fuel in the rich and "it rains on Paris" means pit stop in 3 laps...There is no code, all radio chatter is open for the stewards and TV and the director can choose which radio conversations to air. You're not even hearing it live, it's a recording.
Ahh I see what he meant, I musta been flying or something when I first read that.That's why he's talking about speaking in a 'code', for example, engage the teddy bear drive would mean setting the fuel in the rich and "it rains on Paris" means pit stop in 3 laps...
Tho they way FIA managed to nerf the RBR is probably beyond ridiculous.Well done Eyebrow Man. Glad to see someone else rise to the challenge of breaking Red Bull's winning runs.
It's been probably years since I've said this, but I'm actually honestly happy that a Ferrari won today.
From the 2010 sporting regulation (I assume there haven't change this year):BUTTON: Why did he retire? He could've just rolled back to get the wheel tightened up.....
I don't know if the team could have pushed him back or if that is forbidden too.30.8 At no time may a car be reversed in the pit lane under its own power.

EBD is banned? No? Only 10% when off throttle? Mercedes engines are allowed to run EBD?
It is ridiculous... nobody knows what's allowed anymore... I've beed watching F1 for over a decade and I have never been this confused before.
The only reason Ferrari was close to RBR pace is because the Red Bulls were crippled. Because FIA changed the core rules mid season. (for this race)
So in Germany the EBD will be allowed again? No? Only 10% exhausts? Mercedes engines will be allowed to have EBD?
Nobody won this year at Silverstone. I mean seriously, Ferrari and other teams cannot develop a working EBD? Wtf?
Crappiest race in 5years.
Thenks for pissing on F1 FIA.
Well I cannot tell if you're being sarcastic or not.Ferrari International Assistance strikes again.
Also, Santanderlonso winning the Santander sponsored GP, with a rumor of a rule switch back to EBD later? Sorry, this is too much.
I follow F1 news daily, like most F1 fans. So i reckon it's not that much more worse or better off than yours. My sources may be better but that's not my fault. Also, I question the stuff I read.How boring is your life, if you have time to read THAT much into that whole story? Jeeez.
They'll be back to the old config in Germany, ergo back to normal.
Yeah, but not all of us want that. I want RBR to run away with the championship, because THEY did the work to make their car and aero as efficient as possible, therefore THEY DESERVE IT.I have to agree that the rule changes were designed to disadvantage RBR. And rightly so.
Apart from that, i've never hidden my dislike for both Ferrari and Eyebrow Man, but this race had me cheering for Alonso as I just wanted him to beat the Red Bulls. I wanted ANYONE to beat them, just for the sake of them not winning. I would have even applauded MSC getting back in "rain god" mode in a full wet race if it meant a non-RBR win.
