And any of those FOM, FOTA, FIA, F fucking fucks who say they want to make it interesting for the fans can lick my balls. The Canadian GP always produced an interesting race. They could give a fuck about the fans or the spectacle, they want their money.

I'm all worked up now. I'm going out to stand in the rain to cool off for a bit.

So Montoya broke the pit lane speed limit by .11 mph, and that was enough for NASCAR to take the race away from him?

I'm sorry, that's stupid. At least mandate that it needs to be a full 1 mph over the limit.

He's a twit, but he wuz robbed.

He was over the pit lane speed limit by 5.1 mph, but they only allow 5mph of grace...

Harsh, but rules are rules.

The Renault race ban is stupid too.

Ah, OK. That makes a huge difference.

Never mind, then.

Because they allow 5 mph over the limit, everyone uses that 5mph buffer to the max and the limit is effectively 5mph higher. Odd way of doing things.

Harsh penalty for 0.1 mph over, but nothing he can really argue about.

No, I get it. Give them a buffer and they'll use it. He has no grounds for complaint, the buffer can't be infinite.

It would of given NASCAR a lot of good positive press if JPM had won. The pit lane speeds are shown openly on monitors in the pit lane and if the speed and the buffer is busted it flashes red, he busted 2 sections. If NASCAR would have let it slide then everyone would be saying NASCAR arranged the race so he could win. By pentilizing him everyone can be mad at NASCAR for taking the win from him.

With JJ winning everyone just says NASCAR favors Hendricks and only a big super team can win.

Look what FOTA decided to include in their response to BMW exiting F1.
