    lol so redbull said the reason they stoped is due to "force majeure" meaning superior force

    or further more

    "
    force majeure is a common clause in contracts that essentially frees both parties from liability or obligation when an extraordinary event or circumstance beyond the control of the parties, such as a war, strike, riot, crime, or an event described by the legal term act of God(such as hurricane, flooding, earthquake, volcanic eruption, etc.), prevents one or both parties from fulfilling their obligations under the contract. In practice, most force majeure clauses do not excuse a party's non-performance entirely, but only suspends it for the duration of the force majeure"


    fia accepted this strange clause, but then a technical delegate said they failed to supply the 1 litre sample.!! so what "act of god" if you will, stopped them, and then stopped them from supplying a sample?!

    because

    as it says here,

    "If the event could be foreseen, the defendant is obligated to have prepared for it.[5] Being unprepared for a foreseeable event leaves the defendant culpable. This standard is very strictly applied"

    so as running out of fuel is foreseeable how and why did fia accept this pathetic claim



    ah nevermind, shame lh has no chance of winning the title but i hope he goes out with a bang

    and good luck to alonso he has every chance

    He will make 10 places in the first lap methinks, the Redbull is still a quick car, and with a standing start, the cars at the back of the grid are just sitting ducks!

    I dont understand why the RedBull team are starting Vettel from the pit?
    I can only guess/think that if they start from the pit lane, they can change to a different set of tires from qualifying?
    I cannot see him making 10 places up in the first lap from the Pit...
    My money he's going for a one stop'er!

    Any thoughts?

    Just noticed he's starting from the pits, I think that gives him tyre options like you say. Can't see him reeling in the top 5 though, but it's been done before. I don't associate Vettel as a driver to make some dive down the inside moves to make a place type driver, so it'd be interesting to see how he does?

    simply put
    Red Bull's decision to start from the pitlane means it will be able to make some changes to Vettel's car's set-up ahead of the race.

    so views on this
    line they spun fia?

    Good win for Kimi, got to love his replies on the radio throughout the race!

    As for Vettel coming third, it just goes to show how these cars are comprimised for the quali part of it. Redbull was allowed to make changes to wing setting and gearing starting from the pits! Good driving from him though, he still needed to make the passes, and anyone else catch what he said when Coulthard was interviewing him on the podium? lol

    Dare I say what happened to Hamilton today is why he's chosen to leave McLaren? They've been costing him race wins & podiums all season.

    If you look back over this season and toted up the points lost to team and\or car failures - I think he would have been leading the championship. McMerc has to be one of the most unreliable outfits in the paddock ..IMHO

    Hamilton will be glad to see the back of this unreliable car,Vettel did well but also the safety car timing was impeccable for him.

    thats true but shumi has dropped out a few times this season

    if hami finished in the positions he qualified he would have 273 points, retirements have cost him 100 points, and then more due to bad pit stops and miscalculated strategies, and car setup.

    also i read merc have the best engine for 2014, brawn will be the man with the knowledge, he was one of the guys designing/testing the last turbo engines

    Really looking forward to the US F1, but I cancelled my Sky Sports so I either wait for the highlights on BBC1, or find an online stream. Anyone know of a decent online streaming website?

    F1 streams are rarely decent due to the speed of the sport, but use this site for flash users. I use Sopcast, but you need to download the software and find the links for the streams.

    I have Sky HD, but not the sports package, does that mean I should still get the F1 channel?

    Looks like its going to be a dry Friday at Interlagos, dry Saturday but rain moving in late afternoon and showers Sunday heavy at times.

    I dont mind a little of the wet stuff, but hope it don’t stop the race.
