@keithcollantine Perez declared (in an afternoon recorded program I use to watch) that his gearbox was damaged in qualy. Also he confirmed that he will get a penalty for gearbox change. I couldn’t find you any official source to confirm this.
Enjoy last race of the year, last race with V8 engines, last F1 race of Mark Webber! View
I got really angry when LH had to retire… I saw this race as the last chance for him. Anyway, what most people didn’t notice is that the McLaren is still the most adaptable car right now. What happened here is a mix of really bad luck (remember the puncture?) and a disastrous performance of McLaren pit crew thorough the first half of season.
I think McLaren has managed to resolve their pit problems, and I certainly don’t expect more bad luck… IMHO, Vettel is not a problem (in fact, I don’t think the RB8 as a reliable car), but Alonso indeed is. The guy is in every f*** podium picture. And I don’t think this is gonna change…
BTW, I must expect a Hamilton gearbox change, don’t I? I can’t find a gearbox change table or schema, can you please point me to one? Thanks.
