Awful wasn't it? Got rid of all the drama of driver's going for a last second dash to grab a position and replaced with....well..fuck knows, just a confusing mess.

I think they're still going to have problems even if they revert - both Jensen and Vettel said they were out of tyres anyway.

Awful. Its like when you're seven and try and design a new game using chess pieces with your best mate.

5 place grid penalty for Hamilton in China for swapping gear box.

It would appear that Whingo's main tactic these days is the Schumacher, but he's not always that good at it.

Toto Wolf threatening to impose team orders on them if they can't play like adults. Was good watching though.

Rosberg just cannot race, he can drive, but he's no racer.

Really? Today Hamilton lead from start to finish without any real challenge and the only excitement was some bloke trying to drive with only three wheels and the odd spin because of the rain. F1 is tedious in the extreme.

Other than Whingo proving yet again, as Jon says above, that he's no racer, the most interesting thing from today was that we now know that the penalty for breaking the rules for assisting the driver over the radio is only 10 seconds, or 3 points for Mercedes today, which is cheap compared to 5 grid places next race for changing the gearbox.
