This was a boring procession again led by Seb with a few brighter highlights, this was the brightest.
Not keen on Alonso but what was wrong with stopping to pick up a mate?
No wonder Mark wants out, i do not blame him!!

Poor Webber. They could just give him a fine but a penalty like that sounds too harsh to me. Alonso was just trying to be nice to him. Will Vettel be as nice, and take Webber's penalty instead? That would be nice for Webber and the entire portion of the planet who does not support Vettel. Just joking :P

Alonso is just as guilty as Webber in this, yes it is against the rules, when I saw it happen I thought that Webber would get in trouble for it. Even though they are friends, Alonso did not have to stop to pick Webber up but because it is Ferrari he get's away with it.

So, Ron Dennis was standing out it pit lane without a helmet during qualifying, yet Mclaren were not reprimanded or incurred a penalty. In the race a Lotus team member was observed working on Romain Grosjeans car during a pit stop without wearing a helmet, yet Lotus did not incur a penalty. Mark Webber re entered the track on foot wearing a helmet and fire resistant clothing after the flames were put out on his car by track Marshalls on the cool down lap after the race, accepting a lift back to the pits by 2 time World Champion Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso in his car, and waved to the crowd, as it was his last Singapore race, and Red bull has been reprimanded and Mark Webber penalized, as he now has incurred enough reprimand points this year to incur a 10 place grid penalty for the next race, makes absolutely perfect “Fia fairness sense” to me guys, I am honestly not sure what all the fuss about it is guys?
