So Gutierrez goes from 10th to 20th for blocking Maldonado, even though Maldonado claimed his problems were caused by his own team. But Maxie blocks Maldonado and Sooty and gets a drive through? which will take him from last to last.

One of these times when being crap pays dividends.

Both are out of their depth in F1...Guttierez was 8 tenths behind Hulk in qualy and Max 9 tenths behind Bianchi. Being slow and not looking in the mirrors does not a good combination make.

The press in mostly sleeping on their incompetence while some other drivers are scorched with bad 'grades'. Michael Schmidt I'm looking at you.

ty. well, they couldn't put maxie any further back, could they? giving him a 10 place drop would be like saying to him "go out and block all the others to, you wont suffer". mind you ,a drive through wont affect his result anyway!

but as I said on another thread, what is worrying that despite clear blue flags and lights, maxie said that he was not even aware there was anybody behind him!
and don't forget, he did it THREE times. unbelievable!
