    I’d love to see a feature on gearbox penalties vs. every other kind of penalty at the end of the year. It must account for at least half now?

    Shame given Force India’s pace. Still, points aren’t out of the question so long as he can put in a good grid position before the penalty is applied.

    Also off-topic, but that picture really does remind me of how ugly the stepped noses are. Looks like the car has melted in the Monza sun.

    I was wondering who’d get the penalty this time. :P
