    A thumbs up then from the majority on this race. However, my concern is the only reason this such a good race was because of the rain! Surely the only way forward, now that refuelling is banned, is to have a major reduction in aero performance.

      Remember when Frank Dernie said tyres were the problem, and not the aero? He used wet races as the “perfect example”, as when the track is slippery there is less mechanical grip.

      I thought about this again during the race and deduced a different conclusion to Dernie’s:

      - When the track is wet, you go slower so you don’t spin off.
      - When you go slower, your aero is less efficient. This is why, in the old days when you could change a car before the race, if you thought it was going to rain you upped the aero and ride height.

      So basically, the lack of aero does have an impact on the proceedings. And since the cars depend on aero far more than mech grip, it follows that limiting aero is the way to go; this race just proved it again.

  6. lol @ the one with Alonso facing backwards.

    I see there’s no Whitmarsh or Hamilton in the McLaren pic.

    The pit lane looks dangerously narrow seeing that picture of Kubica in the pits…
