Latest suspicion in the paddock as the teams arrive is that Ferrari manipulated their engines to fail so that they would have room to 'solve' the reliability by 'correcting' parts to the engine. All so that they have a better engine for the next year.

Massa is not weak in rain,people has made an expression on Massa's wet driving after Silverstone but that is not correct.He had one bad race on wet that does not say that he can't drive.Massa is also a good driver in wets

Conspiracy theoriticians seem to start work. This is really interesting but how could get a better engine by correcting parts if they have to put the same part of same properties? For example, they had to change the conrod but didn't they have to put the "same" conrod of some properties?

FP1 starting, looks misty and cold. Looks like it suits McMerc.

By the way, how come the McMerc drivers both seem to have yellow camera bars?
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.
