    Look you guys can gang up on me. But remember you are messing with a guy whose parents were killed in front of him when he was a kid! You don't know how I could react!

    Kidding aside, I feel like you are marginalizing and trivializing my point of view. However my point of view is shared by a couple of the titans of the Formula One Industry - Both Niki Lauda and Ross Brawn share this perspective. Read their recent interviews on Autosport. Your perspective is shared by the stewards. This is the difference between people who can see a couple of corners, and people who see the big picture.

    Your opinion is shared by two people who have a vested interest in the vested interest of their own future and their bank balances. Both have become the parts of the sport that are the anathaema of the fan.
    I'm sure there are also titans of the sport that do not share the view of Brawn and Lauda.
    Lauda was one of the greatest drivers.
    Brawn was one of the greatest team managers.
    Stewards are appointed to steward the event....they can't get it wrong because they are the arbiters.
    Don't like it?
    Tough.

    Don't like where it's headed? Tough! Your thinking is out of touch and out of date.

    I'm not going to dismiss Batman's point but it would only work if the track surface is the best and fastest surface to drive on; in other words, change the run-off so it penalises drivers who leave the track.

    I don’t know why we can’t have grass in places. Yes, it’s slippery but that’s the point it’ll prevent drivers from cutting corners. In the old days, drivers rarely ever had tracks as wide as the ones nowadays. The margin for error was a lot smaller and yet they managed. This generation is rather spoilt in terms of safety features; they sit in nearly indestructible cars, race on endless pieces of tarmac, etc..

    to go on a different point from that race. that was swept aside because arguably 1 of the most controversial moments of the season. that gap to Top 3 team to everyone else was quite scary to me & proved to be situation that is needing sorting asap. that its almost getting into a lmp1 & lmp2 situation. because a minute separated them in Mexico & kimi starting 10th was still 40 secs in Japan

    Agree. Grass is not too bad an option. Especially rough deep grass.

    Massive disagreement in my house, I want to see racing and the championship up for grabs right up to the last race. Hubby wants to see Vettel and Ferrari out of it any time soon. He thinks that Ferrari cheat.

    If only there were.

    May I suggest a good scrub with some mind bleach.
