Replay shows Alonso running wide at Stavelot. He did exactly the same thing as Raikkonen - put two wheels on the kerbs and the car instantly snapped away.

Water/oil from Kimi's crash seems to have caused Fisi's crash. It either seeped from the tyre wall which Kimi hit onto the track, or it's oil from the red cr's rear end.. I wondered why Fisi's rears just let go.

EDIT: Inspector Fisico goes and has a look at the oil/water that he slipped off on. ''hmm''
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

Shoot! I missed that :p

But now I see it in the replay, he brakes on the kerbstones, that's VERY stupid from him, even I know it's not done to break in the kerbs and it's wet, so it's double silly :tired:

Silly, yes, although it does happen to someone every now and then.

But about Kimi's poor form, if Suntrek is right in all of his predictions, iceman1, will you change your avatar to something more tasteful (you know, maybe some burning corpses or something like that - you now, something more tasteful than Ron Dennis' face :) )?

yeah sure :p don't you Like Ron ?

When Raikkonen hit the tyre barrier, the water that had collected within the tyre wall from the rain shower, was dislodged, and ran underneath the outside protective conveyer belt which holds the tyre wall in place.

The water ran down the slope and is all over the run-off area. It also ran down as far as the racetrack. Fisichella ran over the subsequent wet patch and lost the car.

Looks like sector 1 is wet, but the rest of the track looks dry to me.. Isn't it?

Ian Phillips on radio 5 (whose teams use Ferrari engines) think Ferrari will use the 'joker' to change Massa's engine before Monza. Also calls the rule 'fatuous'
