The problem is that the accident was caused by a moving chicane. I don't know why they allow mobile chicanes to run around while they're having an F1 race.

@Freejack and Ed. I concur.
Mark has started solidly this season and is staying out of trouble whilst scoring good points. Nice to see he is just an afterthought in this article. Lets face it though, he's the elephant in the room. If he keeps outscoring Beiber, RedBull are going to have to throw their support behind Mark eventually. Now wouldn't that be nice.

I cant quite work it out, did Vettel finish intact or did he abort on the last lap, thus allowing engine/gearbox change without penalty?

Different subject, Adam Parr of Williams, just announced he is standing down. Wonder what thats all about.

raptor. how on earth would rbr know they were not going to win the race after a few laps? the radio problem was mentioned shortly after the restart..

and odly enough, if you have a problem with kers and/or drs, your chances of winning are diminished. however vettel has been able to win races without kers. and by the way, it is obvious from tv graphics, if a car has active kers and/or drs or not. in fact, wind back to oz. some were claiming that webber did not have drs, when both graphics and tv picture clearly showed that he had.

A bigger problem for him is that last year he discovered that when he hit the throttle the rb7 went almost instantly to where he wanted it to be, this year he will have to drive around the rb8 taking slightly longer, frustrating yes, but surely a double world champion will get to grips sooner rather than later.

He should get a grip. He flipped off NK twice and bad mouthed him on TV and Radio. He is driving more like Massa every week. He should man up an admit he was at fault as well. He cut it way too close moving back in. I guess he thinks everyone should just move out of the way for him.

He also ignored team orders. He admits this as well. Horner has said they will have a good sit down meeting. His head is not only big but has gotten to the point of gigantic . Crash kid is spiraling out of control.
