    Bah!! This rule is really annoying…I was just wondering if there has been a spec change for the gear boxes this year – why are so many of them failing? I don’t remember seeing so many gearbox changes last year.

    Any bets on who’s getting a grid drop for gearbox next?

    I really hope that Webber Grosjean and Rosberg finish 1-2-3 in this qualifying, give their customary post-quali conference, and then all get demoted back just for everyone to realise that the gearbox penalties are a farce.
