Unsafe release is supposed to be against the rules. Activating your DRS outside the DRS zone is supposed to be against the rules. Yet Alonso has got away with both of these over the last few races. The unsafe release today was about as blatant as it could be, and yet not even an investigation. I mean, Alonso had to actually brake and swerve away, so mistimed was his release.

If Rosberg gets penalised, Alonso surely should be.

Speaking of Grosjean, our friend Brundle said that the clash with Webber on the opening lap was a racing incident in his view - take a look at Alonzo's on board footage - you will see Grosjean turn into and collect Webber as plain as day - racing incident? yeah, right. Maybe for Grosjean, lucky Lewis didn't do that.

So when Vettel uses his good eyesight to overtake Vergne at the final race last year, the FIA go mental to try and give him a penalty. But when a Mercedes clearly speeds under yellow flag conditions there is no form of punishment at all? Ross Brawn must have some really nice friends. Rules are rules, and if you break them you must be punished appropriately.

Merc have had the best car since the beginning of the year, they have been working on their race pace since round 1, and they will continue to get stronger and stronger until RBR start crying.

The yellow flag is not shown to only one car, its for all cars passing that flag.

" Yellow Flag Indicates danger ahead and overtaking is prohibited. A single waved yellow flag means slow down, a double waved yellow warns that the driver must be prepared to stop if necessary".
