  1. The “entertaining the crowd” part was awesome. Most fun saturday in ages!

    1. I agree – an entertaining Saturday, minimal data gathering in FP, and a cracking Sunday race. Perfect format!

      Maybe we need to get teams to finalizing their setup prior to FP, and let FP be used only for those drivers not racing (to give juniors/pay drivers experience). Maybe an engine change can be allowed (so a junior doesn’t add mileage to a race engine), but no aero tweaking and other setup work.

  2. The 6. picture is very cool! :D

    1. I’m struggling to figure out why Massa didn’t come under investigation from the stewards for taking out Alonso and ending Grosjean’s race early too. Very unlike Massa to do what he did and also quite annoying he got off scotch free
