    For anyone that watched the BBC coverage, someone went out to turn 4 to have a look at the kerb. Not sure how it compares to other kerbs in other tracks but there was a good 1-2cm lip on the inside of the kerbs. I believe the guy was saying it would definitely cut into the tyre.

    Far to many millions of $$$ involved to do that.
    The universe likes speed. Don't delay. Don't second guess. Don't doubt. When the opportunity is there, when the impulse is there, when the intuitive nudge from within is there, act.

    maybe you didn't mean to say whast I thought you said.

    at the start of the race the commentators where talking of kimi using a different system of DRS, I think they reffered to it as Passive DRS.

    they expected him to have good top speed due to it.

    I was sick, but I wasn't delusional... anyone know about this?

    Tracks fault - not the tyres IMO, tyres dont develop cuts on their own as per Vettels tyres. Why didnt they shut it down? IMO once they knew about the problem it was still safer than a street circuit.

    Fair enough.
    I commented that Raikkonnen was passed by Alonso and was more than a second behind Webber so didnt have the advantage of the conventional DRS as Alonso did, and was left sitting high and dry.
    I wasn't aware of the passive DRS, but even if it was working as implied, he lost out by a fairly big margin to Alonso.

    As an aside, does Lotus have an 'active' DRS in addition to this one, or are they mutually exclusive?

    Read this earlier this morning, along with the usual post race weekend stuff...

    Whiting: I nearly stopped the race | Planet F1 | Formula One News

    Ricciardo had a solid result that wont do his chances any harm, but he has still accumulated less points than JEV.
    I guess its similar with Rosberg & Hamilton... Rosberg has 2 wins this year, but is still behind Hamilton on points...

    Young Dan has really stepped up since Mark announced his plans for next year. Great to see.

    Yeah, hasn't done his chances any harm has he?
    Given that Raikkonen is pretty set on staying at Lotus (according to reports), they could do a lot worse than picking Ricciardo up!

    I really couldn't see Kimi being too keen on going to Red Bull. Yes the car is amazing, but how often does having two world champions in one team work out? I could be wrong, but I would think staying with Lotus would be a better option. Its easy to forget, but that team (Enstone) have won a lot of world championships under a couple of different names. They know what they are doing for the most part, they just need to iron out some of the fuck ups. I think they could very much be on even terms with Red Bull next year.

    Yeah. I think his agent said he's more interested in staying with Lotus than anything else, and having a couple of big egos, especially those as big as Vettel and Raikkonen, it wouldn't be long before there were fireworks.
    Both Vettel and Raikkonen need a 'number 2' to act as a rear gunner

    Here's to hoping that Hamilton can keep it in front & take his first win for the year (I think he deserves it...) & Alonso places higher than Vettel. Would keep the championship honest for a little while yet!

    Hope Ricciardo smashes it again too. A decent points haul for him would be brilliant!!
    JEV hasnt qualified particularly well, but seems to go ok on Racedays. Would be great to see RIC make some points on him.

    Hamilton is owed a win after being robbed by his tyres last week, so hope he wins!
