lol, the Financial Increment Association. Yeah, predictable, just as long as it's not anything that affects the race.
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

I mean they do it all the time at the Nurburgring and at Melbourne..

I think unless its avoidable which cutting the no mans land clearly was. I think it will be more than a fine because when drivers get done for pit lane speeding it doesn't come up on the screen. I imagine a quali penalty like Fisi in Turkey but he did a jump a red light.

I hope you're an Anti-fan of Alonso's being optomistic, because I think that merely merits a fine.

It may well merit a fine and thats open for debate but my point is speeding in the pits isn't investigated and as a general rule everything that is investigated is more than a fine.
I'm quite sure you'd be calling for a penalty had a certain McLaren driver done the same.

Nice lap from Kimi. No idea if it's any good yet though. As for Alonso, I can hardly imagine that they'd even fine him. But you never know what they think there in FIA.

It looks like Kimi has a setup that suits him. Let's see what lewis does.
