Really? I missed that then. I couldn't see it on TV. Can you describe it please?

And regarding the accident issue, here is the rule:

"An accident is a contact, not necessarily with another car (could be the wall) where at least 1 car cannot continue the race or needs attention."

- Kovalainen beached himself in the gravel
- Glock and Webber made slight contact

where at least 1 car cannot continue the race or needs attention."

Nope, spins (and so DNFs due to spins) are not counted as accidents. In Glock's case, as far as I remember they didn't change the front wing and both drivers managed to continue. So it's not an accident either. But I think what formulaonemadman mentioned is another case at the start of the race, which I might have missed.

Or maybe we can discuss it. If you all want to count spins as accidents, then we should go that direction. It's open to discussion.

In my opinion accident is a crash, not neccesary a retirement. For example: Nakajima in australia. That was an accident.
And Kovalainen in Malaysia, that wasn't an accident

I undestand, everybody has different understandigs about that, what's an accident.
But if you bet to an accident, then you start complaining :p

The weather was dry in the beginning of the race, then why the result says it was wet?

If any time during race rain falls and teams use intermediate/wet weather tyres, race will be deemed to be wet as it was the case last year.

So guys here is the explanation:

Buemi: "having had to come in to change the nose. I think one of the Force India cars pushed me wide at the exit of the last corner and I ran over something that broke the front wing."

Then it is an accident so I'll edit the results soon.

Edit: So, effectively there is no change, just the points as I guess everyone predicted there would be an accident. See first post please.

As I stated in the first post, results are based on FIA's race classification. Albeit, they're the same.

And what is more, to be classified you don't necessarily see the chequered flag. If you finish 90% of the race, then you'll be classified. That is the case for today's race.
