Many tracks nowadays are very sanitized....its sucks to see drivers don't get penalized when they got it wrong at 130R or Rivage, and many tough corners.
But still better to see a driver get seriously injured or death from it...its a sport afterall...

Messed up last lap strategy for Hamilton...does anyone think Red Bull has been sandbagging all weekend long, in Practices, and even in qualifying??? Just to give the McLaren a glimpse hope and try to keep the "race" interesting?

lol

what can they do anyway? vettel will more than likely win it by a wide margin. the race, and championship, is pretty much over. the rest is just vettel trying to break some records. the rb7 is just too good.

I think the combo of Vettel, the RB7, and confidence are just good enough to let them reach down and take the pole back. Then again, in just about every single race, Vettel just walks away.

would you want to take a concession if you were constantly winning races? he's the best driver, in the best car. he deserves to win. i see where you're coming from, from an entertainment perspective, but that's not racing.

I'm with you. I just like racing. Hopefully next year the Red Bulls won't be so overwhelmingly better and some other drivers can match Vettel now and then.

we all know vettel will just cruise away on the first lap and head for victory....but the McLaren boys were quite optimistic...this is what they posted on Facebook...

So, how can we make sense of a gap of 0.009 seconds between Jenson and pole man Vettel. Well, our engineers have done it for us, it equates to 68cm in length when travelling at 280km/h across the start / finish line. When you consider the Suzuka circuit is 5.807km in length, that is mighty close!
