Wow. Between the tires, fuel, and team orders it was getting hard to watch. WTF is this about nursing the car home? Shutting down the engines with over ten laps to go. Teams giving up on catching others teams. It's become a joke.

It's like a football team taking a knee in the third quarter . Truly an ugly display.

I won't say worst, I'm going to go with extremely entertaining. From the flubbed pit stops, the loose driving on slicks on a wet track, Alonso's royal fuk up, FI and their lug screw up, buttons screwed pit stop, web vs vet, Ross vs Ham, the back and forth with Vettel and Webber in the post race room.

What a fukin race, I love F1. Lets get passed the team orders bs. If we're going to get into it more, I'll definitely give me thoughts, but I'm trying to focus on how good that race was besides the last 30 mins.

Oh and how could I forget this....

Anybody know where I could catch a replay of the race? I don't get the channel on my lowly university-supplied cable television.

I found it entertaining. The pits were a total cluster for many teams.

I agree the wheel and fuel rules need to change.

I found it to be very entertaining. I agree that there are performance issues that need to be resolved... Taking racers and having them do parade laps is not the point... Fuel economy and tire preservation to this extreme is not the point... But it hardly ruined the race as a whole.

Besides that was one of the most uncomfortable podium events to watch and far better then the usual embarrassingly boring post race blathering....

I can't wait for Webber & Vettel to drive each other off the circuit! :whistle:

And if neither of them does anything it just makes both of them equal b!tches!

One for not being man enough to just come clean and admit he ignored orders.

The other for not being man enough to grab his own destiny by the balls and doing something about it and instead just b!tches and moans all the time.

Race was boring as shit other than the 1st lap and Hamilton pulling a Jenson at the McLaren pits lol.

I was thoroughly enthralled by the race. As a Vettel fan, I found myself pretty embarrassed that he blatantly ignored the team orders. Do I like team orders, no. But in this instance with the heat, and the tires, I can see why the teams used them. Had Red Bull unleashed Vettel and Webber and let them go at it with the motors turned up, they could have ended up being caught by the Mercedes crew. I don't blame Brawn for holding his boys back either, it is a long season, and Mercedes getting a 3rd and 4th so early is a great start. Heck Mercedes only scored 142 Team Points last year total, and now they already have 37 two races into the season, just 3 points behind Ferrari and Lotus. My favorite moment in the race had to be Alonso not pitting. :)
It is going to be an amazing season!
