    True, I need to find an in car photo from Hamilton crossing the line, that is exactly how F1 should be, close tight racing.

    Podium for Carlos was well deserved, a 1 stop strategy from 20th on the grid to 3rd place was pretty damn good!

    VAMOS Carlos!

    its funny watching the Vettel Fans and the Hamilton Fans arguing once again about which move was dangerous and who deserved what penalty

    FIA have seized a bunch of Ferrari engine and fuel control components, the plot thickens.

    Seizing is a wrong word. They took the parts for analysis, together with parts from another Ferrari engine based car and from a non-Ferrari based car. There is no point in creating conspiracy theories until it is confirmed by FIA.

    Its what it is being reported as though.

    Its also funny how their performance has dropped suddenly.

    Only time will tell.

    The FIA "seizing" components post the TD would indicate they were aware teams were using it. Merc/RBR made a complaint so the FIA are now having to investigate.
    The TD was given out in Austin so Ferrari has had plenty of time to revert the system.

    Also worth noting, yes their performance dropped in Austin, but at Interlagos they were still quicker, just a combination of engine penalties, poor strategy, and a collision ruined it.

    When you lose your rich Canadian, just get the fishing rod out and catch another.

    Really they should have grabbed Hulk, but he likely isn't paying as much, Daddy's food company branding will likely make an appearance next season.

    Hulkenberg himself ruled out ever driving for Williams again, their current form notwithstanding they fired him after 1 season in favour of Pastor Maldonado. They did it so late he was left without a drive for 2012 too, as is the Williams way.

    Barring any shock retirements, isn't that the 2020 driver lineup basically sorted now?
