I haven’t done a post in the F1 section for a couple of races now, but I can’t let the new Indian GP pass by without a mention. 


Done something like 80 laps round the track in F1 2011 and what stands out about it is the very long straight and fast corners, there isn’t really any slow sections to the track, I like it. Some of the corners seem quite tricky to learn, so I wouldn’t be too surprised if we see a few drivers leaving the track and going wide in places, I did  Grin

Two DRS zones too.

The teams are getting to the end of their engines and some are failing, two did in practice, we could start seeing engine blowups in the races now, always adds some fireworks  joker.

I thought flexi wings were banned  scratch-head but Ferrari’s front wing was flexing and bouncing up and down like Zebedee, interestingly it was a Ferrari that put in the fastest lap in P2, must be coincidence.   

McLaren have a new front wing that seems to be taking the team a while to get the most out of, if they get it right it should help balance out the car after the new rear wing they added last race gave more rear downforce.

Hamilton got a 3 place grid penalty for not slowing down under yellow flags in practice, can anyone other than Vettel get pole now?

So Vettel wins again as expected and Button has a solid race and gets 2nd, well done Jensen thumbsup.

Ferrari get 3rd with Alonso and the flexi wing, oh no! flexi wings are banned, it must be a vibrating wing as described by Alonso  rofl   

We did see an engine blow and cars having trouble on some of the faster corners  Tongue.

But for me the best bit was when Massa got the penalty for not giving Hamilton enough space and causing an accident, at last the stewards seem to have got the decision correct with regards to the Hamilton Massa conflicts, thank you Johnny Herbert.

Tip for Massa, yes use the kerbs but try to keep off the orange bits.

Thumbs up to India for delivering a fine Grand Prix  thumbsup

Excellent GP. Well done India.

I'm not so sure Massa should've got a drive through penalty but he was clearly looking in his mirrors and knew Hamilton was there. And WOW, Hamilton had a coming together with a Ferrari and didn't get punished. Things are looking up for F1. Glad to see Massa took himself out as well. Am I allowed to hope something falls off of someones car and hits him in the head?  Shocked
Now all we need is for Hamilton to get his 'mojo' back, he's clearly not happy for the last few races.

Good results all round for the rest.
