I think Stewards are again to their stupid decision mode, only 5 secs for not maintaining the required time behind SC, is pure stupid, while last season in Suzuka Qualifying they have awarded grid penalties for all drivers who have posted a fast lap under Yellow. Also Hamilton should have been given a penalty as early as possible but I think they have started investigated when they are sure that Hamilton would come out ahead of others.
I was amazed to see him coming out on 2nd after the penalty because when he has gone in the pits the difference was about 12 secs from Kobayashi and I think it takes 15 secs to go through the pitlane with out any pit visit, How come he comes out at the same position??? Speeding in the pitlane:S. One thing is for sure he gets away once again without a severe penalty.
I like Alonso's reaction when he knows that Hamilton has done his penalty and still 2nd, It was like Alonso was about to smash something.
Brawn at the moment calling a bit too many stupid decisions, changing cars for both drivers is the start and what he did in Canada was just stupid and again the same has been done here with Michal. If Michal has done what Kobayashi has did then it would be amazing too.
First highlights are available tonight at 12:30 AM, and another in morning at 6:30 AM.
Saubers are fast because they have the speed, as they have shown in the pre-season testing but here it is not about being fast only they have made a bold decision to let Kobayashi race on those hards for almost the full race and because of SC he jumps from 18 to 4th as most drivers dive into the pitlane when Michal pits from 3rd he takes the 3rd and remains there till lap 53 where he pitted and comes out at 9th.
With the help of new rubber and that too in the form of Super Softs, he has the pace to do what he did. It was an amazing job overall and also the fact that behind him through out the race it was reigning champion Button it just is classic.
What I am going to say in the following lines is pure fun based and no offence intended towards you. I hope no harsh feelings.
You have lied to us just like Hamilton, when you told us that the stuff you have provided to Ferrari is only for one day while it turns out to be last for the whole weekend.
