They should have all been sent to the back. With Andy Priaulx starting 18th and the rest of the cheats lining up behind in the order of there qualification times.

Tiago Monteiro was excluded for exceeding the turbo boost limit, so the least that should have happend is they got straight to the back.

This is getting quite stupid and tedious now.
Re the revs and bumps comment - surely thats the point of a limiter, all cars would so it, it's never been an issue before, and all tracks have bumps in them!

And btw, the safety car incident in race 2 proves my point. WTCC is now less serious than Nascar, and you know that's pretty bad.

Sunday drivers in crappy cars, serviced by cheating mechanics, overseen by moron directors. That sums up WTCC.

The whole champ is in trouble. The rules are terrible - look at WSBK - what happens when there are two or more engine rules. The Ducati star has already won the WC. Look at last year's WTCC, there were SEAT home races. By the way, SEAT should try to build saloon car like Chevy and BMW and not a shopping car supplied with a truck engine, which was designed for the leon because the small car lacks downforce and stability, and the company couldn't produce an efficient engine. And the FIA tolerates this state with the ever-changing rules. Terrible
