  1. Hmm…Webbo qualified 6th, so should he not be 16th, one place behind DC who moves up to 15th?

  2. 3 hours later:
    Heidfeld gets three-place grid penalty

  3. 3 place grid penalty!!!? When has it been 3 places!

  4. Tommy, Heidfeld got a 3 place penalty in Singapore as well.

  5. I have no idea why they sometimes give five place penalties and sometimes three place penalties. There doesn’t appear to be any explanation why, which is the typical opaque and arbitrary modus operandi of the FIA stewards these days.
