    And he will have no chance anymore when he starts from P24... Do F1 teams no longer have a T-car they can use?
  4. Nope they said they cut spare cars to cut costs
  5. Is there any site where I can watch it? Cable TV gone due to the storm here...

    Edit: found one

    Wow!! The Fernando Alonso Show started! Awesome that the TV directors keep track of him!

    Confused, I always thought if a driver failed to put in a Qualifying time he wasn't allowed to race, so why is Alonso racing?

    M Schumacher got 20 second penalty for passing under greens on last lap. =/
  9. Ah i wondered about that, they said they were looking into it but i never heard anything.
    Martin was full of cod then, he said the rules have changed in which he didnt need to wait until the start/finish line to overtake after a restart

    Mercedes will appeal. imo FIA/Racemarshalls made a mistake by showing greens on last lap. There is one rule in the FIA rulebook (got that from an other forum) which says overtaking is forbidden until the cars reach the first safety car line after the safety car has returned to the pits. Clearly is this rule was in effect by showing greens and giving the message ''safety car in this lap'' which overrules another rule which says that overtaking is not allowed when the safetycar is deployed until the last lap. They never should have shown green flags.

    like always FIA is not drawing the same line: why penalize MSC for this and not penalize Hamilton and Alonso in China for clearly crossing the white line at pit lane entry (in Alonso's case even overtaking in pitlane), which is an infringement according to the rules...

    Technically though as Ross brawn said the SC wasnt deployed anymore as the Race director said SC in this lap and because the Passing starts at SC Line 1 so one rule is conflicting another.
  13. Check arround 1:30 guys at the top right. I think i still see yellow flashing.

    Look in bottom right. Green flag being waved.


  15. Yeah i know. But there is also yellow one. So wich one is oke. ;)

    Green since they've already passed the Yellow and the SC Line so they were under green.
  17. I think common sense will prevail - and while Schumacher will not get away with it, because of the confusion regarding the SC line and waved greens, his penalty will be reduced so that he finishes back in 7th behind Alonso.

    That's what SHOULD happen - mind you, I'm not the FIA.
  18. They did away with that and the 107% rule years ago.
