Drunk, sacked HRT mechanics brawl at factory
Nov.28 (GMM) A brawl broke out at ailing F1 team HRT's Madrid headquarters after staff returned from Sao Paulo, El Mundo newspaper reports.

The report said the fight involved drunk mechanics who had gone straight from the airport to the team's factory to collect compensation for their redundancies.

"The atmosphere heated up and police had to be called to intervene," said the report.

A member of the failing team's management confirmed: "They began to threaten, push, hit; and because there was a violent situation we did call the police."

Rumours say that Vettel extended his contract until 2016.

Just by guesswork, I reckon the Williams mechanics had the hardest job in 2012. This, I believe, is the damage they had to repair in 2012:

Australia: Maldonado, heavy crash
Australia: Senna and Massa clash
Spain: Senna hit by Schumacher
Monaco: Maldonado FP3 crash
Monaco: Maldonado Lap 1 crash
Canada: Senna FP2 crash
Canada: Maldonado Q2 crash
Britain: Senna heavy FP2 crash
Belgium: Maldonado race crash
Singapore: Senna FP2 crash
Brazil: Maldonado race crash
Brazil: Senna race crash

That's not to mention minor clashes where just front wings were lost.

some comparison on retirements in 2012:
Lewis Hamilton: 6 times
Heikki Kovalainen:1 time
Pedro de a Rosa:4 times
Timo Glock:1 time
Vitaly Petrov:2 times
A craven can be as brave as any man, when there is nothing to fear. And we all do our duty, when there is no cost to it. How easy it seems then, to walk the path of honor.
