    Can I ask those who suggest adding non-F1-standard tracks like Zandvoort and Brands Hatch the following question:

    Are you suggesting keeping these tracks as they are, and altering the FIA’s standard for F1 circuits so they make the grade (with the potential ramifications in terms of safety).

    Or are you suggesting these tracks should be altered to satisfy existing F1 standards, as for example is happening at Mexico’s Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez right now?

    Hopefully some of the F1-grade talent which will inevitably be left out next year by the declining numbers of teams will find their way into that car.

    The rules allow him to use his number instead of the champion’s ‘1’ if he chooses to. If you don’t like it, fine, but it’s his choice. Saying he’s “shaming the sport” is hysterical nonsense.

    Not taking the number one in Formula 1 is to motorsport what using the world cup thropy to beat moles to death is to soccer, a blantant disregard for all that have come before you.

    No it isn’t. The number one wasn’t given to champions until the seventies. Before that drivers often had different numbers from race to race.

    Besides which if this bothers you so much you should direct your anger at the FIA, not Hamilton, as they are the ones who changed the rules this year to permit it to happen.

    @dragoll I think you misunderstood – I was just saying it was the last race of the tenth season F1 Fanatic has been running. Will definitely be back for an 11th! But it’s nice to know I’d be missed if I were going anywhere :-)

    Jump a truck over a moving F1 car? Sure…

    Here’s a quick one from me: an inspired Max Verstappen climbs from 11th to steal 2nd from Antonio Giovinazzi at the line at Imola:

    All bar one of the champions in the drivers’ conference on Thursday, but the seven-way brawl in the teams’ conference could be the most exciting action of the weekend.

    What would you ask this lot bout the season finale, the title fight, double points, Caterham’s crowdfunded return and the eternal question of costs and revenue distribution?

    Drivers

    Lewis Hamilton
    Nico Rosberg
    Sebastian Vettel
    Fernando Alonso
    Jenson Button
    Nico Hulkenberg

    Teams

    Rob Fernley (Force India)
    Christian Horner (Red Bull)
    Monisha Kaltenborn (Sauber)

    Some details from Ben on who we can confirm for the show:

    @f1droid There was a good explanation of why sending lapped cars to the back of the field wouldn’t work posted by Andy G – it was Comment of the Day a while ago: http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk/2012/03/09/93-2/#commentoftheday

    And I stick with my original view that this is such an insignificant matter it isn’t worth wasting time on.

    It’s a non-problem. You basically never see cars overtaking immediately after a Safety Car period anyway, so filtering lapped cars out of the way is a waste of time and green flag laps.

    Those running the sport have far more important things to talk about than over-complicated new Safety Car rules. Like why we’ve just lost four cars.

    @andae23 That is very random!

    Brief shot from lap one, with squealing (fan, not tyres):
