Brown racing suit moment!!

You could see the tyre tracks in the rain crossing over as the car span but I doubt he could see them from that low down.

Not too bad, they kept moaning about the noise, but it seemed to me they had their mics set for last year still, even pitlane boy was too quiet. If they cranked the atmos ones a bit we'd hear all the tyre noise now. The regen under braking does sound like a bag of spanners.

They were able stay pretty close to each other, so maybe they've fixed some of the "aero making following impossible" issues.

EDIT: For sense and spelling O.O

It was a good race, some good overtaking and some fairly messy driving when they hit the loud pedal too hard :)

Shame about Massa. no shame about the Lotus boys ;)

Murray Walker was on Desert Island Discs over the weekend. Much less annoying than he could be on the F1 commentary.

The quieter engines make it great for crowd noise, you could hear the Canadians going nuts at that hairpin.

Well, that was a good grand prix, but it could have been epic if Massa hadn't tucked in behind Vettel for ages.

I think the FIA has completely lost its mind! Standing starts after safety car periods? WTF?

That was one hell of a snap when he hit that bump.

They need to give Renault and Ferrari a fuel increase or something. Not going to happen but they definitely need a speed increase.

They look odd, but perhaps that's just a crappy CAD user.

Le Mans cars have run big wheels forever.

It would mean a significant redesign of suspension, with all that squash taken out of the tyre wheel combo.

Open wheelers look silly with low profiles.
