Give every marshalling point a FIA-owned car jack, extra wide, with big off-road castor wheels. Lift car at the back, push out. Problem solved.
(Dear mods: Of course that says “bollard”. What else could it POSSIBLY say? :p)
“Wow! Screwing on wheels with this wheel gun IS just as quick and easy as screwing a country!”
“That’s a Ferrari, right? I’m a big fan! They don’t take cr*p from anyone, they always immediately threaten to leave the sport. They could save so much money and rule all racing if only they made their own Formula […]

We call it the “Huthi-initiated Policing Operation.”
I’m not saying don’t cancel the race.
But if they DO cancel the race, I bet a number of groups in all sorts of countries, even militant environmental groups, might see if they can F1 banned by calling in bomb […]
Fair point. They are in a car and not, let’s face it, for various reasons not on a football pitch, constantly spitting around.
I’m not sure placing tramps next to the circuit will do any good, but whatever. :p
I’m neither a Max nor a Lewis fan, but I whole-heartedly agree with your second sentence.
If it happens I think I’m as appalled by this as you are, but is there actually any other way?

Any chance of repeat violations and associated point deductions, as often happens in the game of snooker, after which Valteri becomes surprise world champion?
On a less silly note, I think this is actually a […]
Well, Jenson made his thoughts quite clear I believe. Maybe not on the TV feed, but apparently afterwards.
I kinda assumed this is “normal”?
The one race I ever attended, at Nürburgring, we elected to show up at 9am, and leaving the parking lot took about 90 minutes, with another hour or so to get from the track […]
I loved waking up (with the help of ol’ trusty alarm clock, granted) to F1 on a Sunday. For me that’s Australia, but it lets me watch F1 in peace, and then I’d walk the still silent and mostly empty streets at 8am […]
