undapakru. i never said 120% legal, as there is no such percentage! i said what the bulls have done with their transfer tanks is LEGAL. if you do not believe me, ask the fia, who were asked by ferrari to pronounce on the subject. as someone else said, how did ferrari find out something that is not in open view.

many cars have items on them, which to the layman appears to be illegal, but within the existing rules, are fully legal. you may not like it, but fia have final say.

to me, i find the use of coanda exhausts to be outside the rules, which were framed to try and prevent the gasses being used on the diffuser. but fia have accepted them, so i live with it.

Where are the Vettel critics that only say that he cannot win or do a good race unless he starts from pole?
Oh, wait... I know... Red Bull must be cheating, right?
Amazing race buy Vettel and Kimi...

Now...why Weber was not penalized for his first shunt is beyond me...

i wonder if ferdi is suffering a bit from deja vu? he lost the wdc in 2010, as he was unable to get past a lotus. today, he may well have lost the wdc because he could not get past a lotus.

he was not a happy man after the race, wheras kimi and seb were chatting away together like best mates.

Many teams use contractors, they are a way of getting labour costs around the RRA, they are not all loyal to the team they work for and many have moved around the various teams, they tell each other about the cars they work on via texts, Facebook, and phone cameras, sadly.

The best car in the field to start with,
a questionable gear ratio change over night, a third of the field crashed out of his way, two safety cars, and JB pulling over, I give Seb and RBR credit, but that was a lot of luck too.

He had 1 more pit stop than everybody else. The car was removed from Park Ferme so he had to start from the pit lane but this allowed them to make perfectly legal set up changes.

Silly season truly...I was not expecting one of the most boring circuits to host such a firecracker!
Badminton mates join at the podium alongside deserving Alonso

Awesome drives by almost everyone apart from DNFers and Perez...McLaren will eat poo if Checo doesn't keep it clean like Button next year. Shame too with letting down Lewis after being in best position all weekend.
