We could possibly have then just 2 races to go if it carries on raining at Suzuka and Koreas still not ready

Well he has only done 17 laps so far due to crashing in P1 and without P3 to set up his car, it's unlikely that he will have anything like the ideal setup.tooncheesef1 said:Hamilton has a five place grid drop for changing a gearbox. Mclaren's title challenge is looking weaker after each race. On the bright side we will get to see some overtaking from him
Probably the best he can hope for is a 4th place on the grid, so starting 9th.F1Yorkshire said:Bad news for Hamilton, 5 place grid drop for gearbox change
His only chance now is to qualify 6th and start on the primes and hope safety cars go his way.
But knowing McLaren's luck even though Alonso's car takes a heavy knock.....as in Spa & ItalyATL11 said:Of course all this will be irrelevant if Seb qualifies 2nd, off the grid he gets a run on Webber & tries to take him on the inside and they collide taking Massa & Alonso with them.......
Without a doubt.McLarenSupremo said:Not a classic, but interesting nontheless, it can be argued now that McLaren are out of the running and its a fight between the Red Bulls and Alonso
I can't find the specific regulation but if the part is broken then the team can fit a replacement with no penalty. There's lots of precedent this season.Brogan said:
Therefore, perhaps 9.5.2 of the technical regulations applies in this case.If a driver fails to finish a race due to reasons beyond his or his team's control, he may start the next meeting with a different gearbox without incurring a penalty.
I would actually say more so, Petrov moved to the left in the pack to early, not bright but hardly a deliberate dangerous maneuver; Massa took to the grass on the inside to try and pass at 120mph which is plain stupid IMHO.Brogan said:Can anyone explain why Petrov has been given a grid drop penalty at Korea but Massa hasn't?
From what I saw, Massa was as much to blame for his accident as Petrov was for his.
