Maybe a bit extreme, but grid penalty for Sepang would be justified.


I think penalties at the subsequent race are a bit dodgy. Take care of it on the day unless the driver's infraction was really dangerous.

Montoya in Barrichello USA was also a black flag. I think it's not extreme

Since Singapore 2009 :O
Again a problem for Vettel, what a shame. Nice race for Jenson Button but it's not normal that the option tyres manages to do nearly all the distance!
Schumacher was nowhere today after the contact with Alonso...

Hamilton got a penalty for France 2008 after what happened in Canada. Same with Vettel after Oz last year. Webber was a complete idiot with that move and cost Hamilton 5th or maybe 4th.

Montoya took Barrichello out of the race, and he got a drive through, not a black flag

In the Canada 2008 case, I think Hamilton was penalized enough through taking himself out of the race. With the way that 2008 season went, that penalty in France could have cost him the championship if things went just a little differently.

Jenson thought he made the mistake of his life when making the call, exiting the pits

Sniff: :lol:
Australia has turned off the country's television in disgust. #F1

These pit-car radio excerpts are very delayed. I just heard one of Nigel Mansell saying his tyre had burst. #F1

Seriously, why does the FIA insist on using this 2bpm version of God Save The Queen? #F1

Mark Webber owns Australia's only VHS recorder. FACT! #F1

Anyone want to bet on which lap De La Rosa will fall into that lake? #F1

I strongly believe it was a black flag after hitting Rubens.. Was it 2003? 2002?

One of the best races in years, this race had everything: crashes, overtaking, suspense because of the strategy! Admittedly it got a bit duller as soon as the likes of Hamilton and Webber went into pitlane, but that is also what got us such an exciting finish.

Overtaking is very well possible, also in the dry apart from a few exceptions (Hamilton vs Kubica or Alonso vs Massa for instance, but then again, we also saw some great racing mid-race when the track was dry). So obviously it's up to the track...

Hopefully Malaysia will be as eventful!
