Having finally gotten around to watching the race, my wife said I was giggling like an idiot each time Vettel came on the radio and cried.

I really want to go to Texas this fall and spring for the pit passes just to give Alonso a high-5 for cranking up Vettel's vag-o-tron to maximum.

Everyone except the backmarkers.

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?

Pretty fucked up.

The ban can be delayed to next season if teams take a unanimous vote to do so. Not sure an entire grid has ever been unanimous about anything.

Kimi's taking a lot of flak for declaring that 2015 will be his last season. I get it, to be honest.

He did look disinterested at the end of his first stint with Ferrari. He didn't end well with Lotus, although the team's behavior clearly had a lot to do with it. Now, facing hard times back at big red, once again he seems to be throwing in the towel.

Fairly or unfairly, his reputation is taking a hit. I assume he doesn't care.

No unanimous vote by teams for an amnesty on the FRIC ban for Germany. So any team not running the interconnected suspension system is vulnerable to a protest.

Some big teams won't use it, reportedly.

Quote:
McLaren have already indicated that they intend not to use FRIC in Germany while Mercedes and Red Bull have also hinted they will remove the system.
I still don't understand why the FIA is doing this in the middle of the season, when the technology's been in F1 literally for years.
