I sure am glad that Lewis Hamilton is in F1. That guy is all drama, all the time. Without his theatrics the race might have been on the dull side.

Rosberg must be a little nervous about his own brakes. Hamilton sounded very shaken up on the radio.

The ambient temp was really high, though. Close to 90 degrees air temp, which means rack temp was likely well over 100.

FRIC has been in F1 since Lotus in 2008. What the fuck took the FIA so long to make this determination? And why in the middle of the season?

I don't think he'll ever get near him. Nico will run away at the front. The only threat will come from Vettel, I reckon. Apparently the Red Bulls were fast on Friday.
