    Default F1 : Valencia Grand Prix

    Well, looks like this Automated System needs to be chucked in the bin! Or Raikonnen needs to be chucked in the bin!

    Not been focusing much on the race, but it's been on in the background ... Still looks like it's averagely eventfull ....

    Raikkonen does the Albers style
    And then he blew it up, awesome

    It doesn't matter how much horsepower your car has, it's about the smile on your face when you drive it.

    !!!! Massa saying he was in thr right with the incident in the pit lane! IMO he was the one at fault! Or at least his lollipop man was. Or was it this new system?

    He seemed arrogant in that press conference. And I didn't like it

    So this track was purposely made for high octane action. I think the Ä70mil was well spent.

    And they have the cheek to say Silverstone is out of date.

    Then there is all the fuss from the Ferrari Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA).

    ITV-F1.com
    Ferrari fined but Massa keeps victory

    Felipe Massa has been allowed to keep his European Grand Prix victory after the stewards investigated his near-collision in the pits with Adrian Sutil.

    The incident occurred on lap 37 as Massa and Sutil left the pits following their second stops.
    Massa was released from his pit bay into Sutilís path as the German driver accelerated down the pit lane, but contact was averted.

    The Ferrari driverís win was initially in doubt pending the outcome of the post-race investigation, but although the stewards deemed that, although he had been released from the pits in an unsafe manner, he had gained "no sporting advantage".
    So in the GP2 race the drive through penalty was wrongly given for a unsafe pit box exit.

    Kimi makes 1 million euro a weekend driving the Ferrari. WOAH

    And was kind of a boring race. Overtaking not easy. A really fast track that is. The hairpin after the curved straight, the section after that is my favorite. Those fast right-handers that they only slightly lift for.

    looks like ferrari got away with it again, if that had been other team then they would have been fined more, lost points, DQ or been dropped positions in the next race.

    Nice to see the FIA being fair as always.

    The lollipop man will no doubt have been sacked by now... he let Massa out to early and didn't even do his jib when Raikonnen pitted causing a nasty injury to one of the pit crew.

    I remember a similar incident with Hamilton earlier this season and he got docked 10 grid places for it. Drivers need to take responsibility for their own actions, especially those form Ferrari, who seem to get away with everything.

    Track was one of the worst I've ever seen, and I really hope it won't be on the calendar ever again. It produced such a boring race.

    Only $10,000? Geez, didn't Lewis get fined $5000 for being 2 minutes late to the driver's meeting?

    The pace of the Ferrari car is...surprising. Unfortunately, it makes the race quite dull. I nearly fell asleep watching Hungary, and same for Valencia. There wasn't any fight for first because Massa was just so far ahead.

    But Ferrari drama in the pit lane kept things mildy interesting. I don't know why they just don't go back to the good ol' lollipop man. That's a time tested technique. And even if this new system saves .2 seconds, is it really worth putting your pit crew and car in danger?

    I didn't know they just weren't using the lollipop man? Which dumb idiot made that decision
