    Ugh, that's terrible. End of her career, beginning of a struggle to adapt to a new kind of life. Worse things are happening in the world, but I feel really bad for her.

    Judging by the headline I assume it's Hamilton, but only because Schumacher always got away with his shit.

    "Der böse Bube der Formel 1"

    Does that translate to "the biggest boob in Formula 1"?

    and a fight over whether teams had enough wet tires to put on a show today.... teams say no, Pirelli says yes.

    The teams are right. With only 3 sets of full-wet tires for the entire weekend, they'd be crazy to use them up on day 1. I don't see the point of limiting the supply of wet tires. As Hamilton said, thousands of fans showed up to sit in the rain and watch an empty track. That hurts the sport.

    Here's hoping anyone who has decided to record qualifying has allowed for the rain delay. :evil

    Alonso showed a huge amount of class in the after-qualifying Press Conference by dedicating his place to Maria de Villota and her family. :clap
