A little off topic, but seems about the most appropriate to raise this in the absence of an article - Has anyone else noticed that Alonso seems to have both hands off the wheel for his start procedure? I saw an onboard replay of a start at one of the more recent rounds (maybe Monza) and it looks as though he has both hands by his knees, then the right hand goes up to the wheel then the left shortly after. It's difficult to see with the cockpit being so tight, but he certainly doesn't have either hand in the 'normal' position on the wheel for about 3 or 4 seconds after the lights go out. Seems fairly unsafe to me, particularly if a car in front stalls on the line. Although, the Ferrari start system is probably about the best, both Alonso and Massa seem to get away well fairly consistently.
