    Why were McLaren moved from the back to the middle of the pitlane halfway through 2008?

    @mnmracer You have a really good memory! Seems like you missed out Kobayashi in Spa though.

    Best Driver: Nico Hulkenberg, fantastic drive bar the spin and Ham wouldn’t have been anywhere near if not for SC
    Worst Driver: Paul di Resta, nowhere near his leading teammate and crashing into a wall to top it off
    Best Team: Ferrari, first double podium since Korea 2010
    Worst Team: Mercedes, both a lap down without SC
    Best Overtake: Kimi on Schumacher, another clean move and payback from 2006
    Best Funny-moment: Kimi, literally taking a trip down memory lane
    Most Surprising Result: FI leading, MSC scoring, Vettel’s comeback (again)
    Least Surprising Result: Grosjean and Maldonado crashing out within 5 laps
    Special Mention to: Button, Alonso, Massa, Vettel, Schumacher, Petrov
    Race Rating: 10/10

    @crr917 if that scenario were to occur I believe Alonso would have won

    Wonderful read. Sounds really similar to this year!

    Abu Dhabi – made changes everywhere, really
    http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=5740833

    Bahrain – joined turn 8 to 11
    http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=5740839

    Shanghai – much more fast, sweeping corners
    http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=5740826

    India – modified first and last turns
    http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=5740859

    COTA – faster sequence leading to back straight, turn 15 is now a Hockenheim-style banked hairpin

    Isn’t this something like the warm-up sessions 10 years ago?

    Alonso still 40% of a win behind Vettel

    How many non-DRS passes were there? (excluding the first lap)

    Altering car regulations will do nothing to help as the car behind cannot accelerate before the car in front. This is entirely a traction problem and is hardly related to dirty air or a car’s aerodynamics. Surely you don’t move before the car in front does at a traffic light? The problem is that new circuits such as COTA continue to have this hairpin-straight-hairpin sequence yet none of the ‘designers’ seem to have realised it is not conducive to overtaking.

    Kimi was clearly on the grass at the start
