Any pushing another driver off the track, shunting from behind without waiting, or any other deemed unclean and unfair racing tactic will be taken to the stewards for assessment of penalties on drivers found guilty of this. Happy racing Questions: 1.) Do you consider China to be a fun track to drive or more of a headache or bore? 2.) At this point, are you satisfied with the car you are in or would you like or consider a switch to a different car? 3.) Different cultures and nations have different holidays they celebrate throughout the year. Is there a holiday not celebrated in your own country that you wouldn't mind celebrating in your own country?
