  1. Podium interview was stupid

    1. Absolutely man. I expected it to be awesome because Lucas was there but it was probably the dumbest ever

    2. Ageed haha!

      Must have been too noisy for them to have a proper one!

      1. Happy new year!

        I was like .. facepalm :P

  2. So is Hamilton under investigation or not?

    1. He is, but Paddy Lowe said it was precautionary…
      I guess we wait and see!

      1. @goofy

        Where’d you get that so soon!? Looks like Ted’s watching the thread :)

    2. His left rear tire was 0.3 PSI below the minimum pressure at the start of the race. Rosberg’s was as well.

    3. Both Mercs under investigation:

      The FIA has now confirmed that the “measured minimum tyre pressure on the left hand side rear tyre of car number 44 was 0.3 PSI below the specified minium tyre starting pressure and the measured minimum tyre starting pressure of car number 6 was 1.1 PSI below the specified minimum tyre starting pressure.

      Paddy Lowe said on Sky TV that the team has a meeting with the stewards.

      1. I have to imagine it’s not going to change the race result….changing the result would seem preposterous, especially for Lewis considering the .3 psi disparity. Nico is a non factor due to his engine failure. I have no doubt the Mercedes themselves may get some penalty, perhaps a fine, or perhaps a warning which insures that if it happens again, they will face some stiffer penalty.

  3. Look at that crowd. Just look. How can Bernie not want that on the calendar?! Come on what a crowd!

    1. @strontium, Maybe Bernie is hoping for crowd-funding to pay the extra 10 million he wants

      1. Surely crowd-funding is quite literally what the race ticket sales are :)

  4. Tyre pressure. Merc will get away with it. Just put some 02 and trick the psi gauge. Teams are allowed to use 02 or N02 so there’s many ways to get around the Pirelli thing. In my view they will get away with it it’s such a grey area.

  5. Honestly, I only watched 30 seconds of the race today… well, maybe a whole minute (if you count I turned on the TV twice again to see how it was going).
    I really don’t know if Kimi’s start was just plain bad luck, or he is the one to be blamed for it. But every single time it happens, it makes you wonder if Ferrari was right to confirm Kimi’s 2016 seat so soon.

  6. Was interesting to see Hulkenberg being unhappy after the race, said he never quite had the pace. Finished right behind his ream mate despite starting further back, wonder if both Force India’s had more pace than they eventually showed.

    Shame about Kimi’s start, but glad the F15-T is a car that allowed him to fight back. Shame most of the passes were DRS passes, though.

    1. I too feel the same about force India, they seem to have lost their pace all of a sudden. They expect their full vjmo8 at Singapore a circuit that will suit them more.

  7. Good thing the race director spent so much time at the end showing a 1-lap down Button and 6-laps down Alonso race it out…

    1. Thank you, i was hoping to see the battle between Bottas and Massa and the tv showing a slow ass replay of the Rosberg incident multiple time from multiple angles
