Isn't it obvious? Divine intervention is the only relief for RBR's woes
They are following our truck and bus driver's technique of covering all bases by revering various deities!

Nice find, btw. I'm also curious to know the actual reason for this.

The Kimi era at Ferrari seems to be coming to an end.
Ferrari doesnt like drivers criticizing the team.
Kimi is just digging himself into a deeper hole from which its going to be a tough ask to save himself.

"I got certain information from the team and obviously it was wrong," Raikkonen said after qualifying.

"I was doing the same thing that I had been told when we went out and I never got the information that the the first plan was not even possible and we missed one lap completely.

"I was basically doing the normal thing and I was not told that the plan had changed.

"The point is they sent me out too late and we missed one lap and it cost us a lot.

"There was a mistake at some point and they sent me too late out. The plan changed at one point but I was not told."

If RBRs had a higher ground clearance, we would have seen "nimbu-mirchi" (lemon+chilli) hanging in the front too

Kimi will need to put in some stellar performances in the second part of the season to retain his seat. The team were judicious in saying that traffic had held up Kimi and there was a element of truth in it. Kimi was following Perez who was following Alonso and could not find a way past the slow Mclaren which resulted in both of them getting eliminated. However, Kimi should have been on it for a second consecutive timed lap.

Should be a good race for Ferrari nevertheless, most winners have won from 3rd on the grid.

Here's the James Allen strategy brief.

Well, all predictions for Kimi are officially not going to come true.

Huge collision between Alonso and Kimi. Very similar to a Schumacher crash a few years ago.

Alonso extended a hand to Kimi to help him get out of the car. But looks like Kimi wanted none of it.

Quote:
Replays suggest that Raikkonen's Ferrari got loose as he accelerated out of turn two - cold tyres? - and got a tank-slapper on.
As the speed was scrubbed off the Ferrari he was collected by Alonso running close behind, the two cars becoming entwined as they collided with the barriers on the left of the track, with the McLaren riding up on the sidepod and monocoque of the Ferrari.

Apart from the charge from Vettel to try and catch Massa and Bottas' overtaking.

Quite a mundane race again.

Uncharacteristic error from Lewis. Didn't matter much to him anyway, consequence of the error didn't bear any consequence on the end result.

Stellar race from Rosberg!

What a horrible day for McLaren Honda yet again. Both cars DNF. Not only did they lose out on a result, they also lost out on valuable data for their cars.

If Kimi is leaving Ferrari, I would love for Alonso to come right back in next year!

Results:
Only 14 cars managed to completed the distance.
And we had a McLaren on top of a Ferrari, literaly.
Hamilton's lead cut down to 10 pts. Let the games begin.

We keep hoping and expecting that something will change in F1, but then, track after track, race after race, its pretty much the same thing - mundane at best. I missed the crash but looks horrible from the images.

Thankful as always for SFI to come into the points for both cars.

Hamilton is such a bad loser. He should have the courtesy of congratulating or at least acknowledge Nico's win and not just pretend he is not there.

The race started well, but the crash between Kimi and Alonso took wind out of the fight between the top 3.

Maldonaldo had an amazing catch from a tank slapper alongside Max. But the race was boring overall.

Scary 1st lap. Kimi lost the rear big time.

New fan video


Nice to see Rosberg get a good consistent race in. Im a little concerned at both Mercedes unable to closely follow each other for more than a few corners. Too much downforce loss? Lewis did not even try to get in DRS range after the 1st lap.

I was hoping McLaren would get to collect a lot of data from running the entire race, but not to be.

Good race for Massa. Catch of the race goes to Maldonado!

That was quite a painful race to watch. After seeing Kimi climb to 14th, I was optimistic of an exciting race but sadly it wasn't meant to be. To make things worse, Vettels pitstop error made the afternoon a lot worse for Ferrari.

Happy to see Rosberg genuinely quicker and beating Hamilton on merit.

Looks like Alonso did offer a hand and Kimi took it. He probably delayed the hand shake because he was getting his steering fixed in place which is a rule.

I have often wondered for exactly crashes like this and other airborne ones, why F1 cars do not have a roll cage above and in front of the driver's head (not just the hump behind) to protect from an airborne car spearing the driver into his car. Maybe something like the restraining cages they have on roller coaster rides.

That was scary.

I think that was why the new platypus noses from some time ago, and the current height of the nose from the ground, has come to be.
Though looking at Kubica, Bianchi, and this one, things can still show themselves to have the potential of going horribly wrong.
