    Good. It's only fair after taking away a pole position from Hamilton for the same reason.
    This should certainly make the Vettel / Alonso situation more entertaining.

    It'll definitely make these last 3 races more interesting. :freaky RB's been pushing the rules limits all year but Karma has a way of wending back and punishing the sleazy. :wink: We'll see if Alonso can make up some serious ground tomorrow. Abu Dhabi's a hard track to pass on, so Vettel could even finish out of the points. I think Webber might win and Raikonnen podium.

    Agreed, it throws things wide open again. And Vettel struggled on the harder tire in practice and qualifying, so he's likely to have at least one mediocre stint. It's odd that the Red Bull is slumping on a track which normally favors them. I wonder how much is going on behind the scenes that we're not privvy to?

    We need video of it canting downward at speed to show how it helps airflow and overall downforce. :deal Red Bull is ingeniously crooked, but we shouldn't forget Penske's acid-dipped Camaro bodies in the old TransAm days. Engineers given creative rein will reign. :evil Ferrari's now expressing concern that RB is moving fluid back and forth to assist suspension and weight-loading also. :norton

    Were Kimi's comments edited or did the mic just drop out? What did he say?
    Vet just dropped the f-bomb so maybe it was the mic. :lol3

    Edit: Varsha just said edited.
