F1 » Horner: Bernie is going to say ‘I told you so…’


duh, "having more options makes for better competition". What genius. Sure, as long as they aren't expensive options. Then the inevitable complaint will be that they allow the wealthy teams to buy races. And as long as the mfgs of the options are independent, or they will complain that they give the mfgs too much influence over the teams.

" ...you're kidding, right? Surely you're kidding...it happens 17M times a day. And it would happily happen this time if Roseberg wasn't leading the championship. He proved a point: Hamilton can't effectively block faster cars without running a real risk of being taken out of the race. The fact that he was taken out BY HIS OWN TEAMMATE would have been plenty of evidence ALONE for investigation...if his teammate hadn't a) been leading the championship b) gone on to finish 2nd while Hamilton c) was 2nd in the championship d) DNF'ed and e) Mercedes was running away with the constructors' championship. You're right, the risk of a PR disaster was just too great but clearly people get punished for "thoughtcrimes" all the time. Don't even bother to go there. In a world that regularly uses "ends justify the
