First of all, this sucks for Paul - really bad luck.

Second of all, I would NOT like to be in their garage right now. This guy has a massive chip on his shoulder and a HUGE temper. I can only imagine his reaction!

lolz, over 1-2kg.

I wonder if the teams get access to the weigh bridge before each session to check the weight of their cars.

F1's biggest losing aspect is that it has politicians dictating the direction of the racing and over zealous rule maker trying to justify their own pay checks.

Good decision by the stewards, 1.5 Kg too light is 1.5 Kg too light. Coincidentally he was just 2 hundreds or so quicker than Ricciardo in Quali so that just shows these things are important.

Another blow to DR though, but to be honest Sutil has had his share of bad luck in the team as well this year so maybe this starts the great battle back from Sutil pointswise and we'll yet again see the wheels come off of DiR's topteam aspirations for the 3rd year running as the season draws to a close.
