Wow, aesthetically speaking that is one ugly exhaust. :)

But it works! And a lot less heat in the engine bay. The turbo on the merc is almost part of the block. Its all tucked into the V of the engine.

The renault cars have the turbo sat behind the engine. So to keep it low on the red bull they recessed it into the top of the gearbox. This led to some of the fires they had as the carbon fibre gearbox casing went up in flames.

And the chances of the mclarens finishing in Australia? Anyone think Alonso has realised the mclaren is slow and wants an excuse not to drive?

I think they might finish, but they're going to be at the back. All the reports point to Alonso having been badly concussed, so he was going nowhere near the car until the safety period was over, but yeah he might be rather relieved. It certainly looks like he jumped ship at the wrong time.

Sounds like a dull race up front and some racing in the middle.

Eleven finishers? (That'll teach me to look at the BBC website before watching the highlights. :( )

Wow, I knew the Mclaren was slow but that was astounding. Only Marussia could have made them look better.

Still it was nice to see Sauber take advantage of it all. I wonder if Ferrari will sustain the improvement.

It's been a long time sine I rooted for a Ferrari. The race fizzled out though.

The stats for indycar are not good. High speeds and close running doesn't help one bit.

Justin Wilson was an organ donor that's both great and really weird to hear.

I like the fact that Lewis Hamilton got told to go faster but they wouldn't tell why. Just in case they dropped themselves in it. :)

Seriously who the hell uses psi anymore?
