Just be McLaren's luck that they dump Honda and miraculously Honda finds the problem and the Williams and Sauber are faster.

Especially at the end with the punctures to the Ferraris, if Vettel's puncture had happened a couple of minutes earlier, then Hamilton would be leading the championship.

Thankfully, as I'm about to buy a motorcycle, I think I'm going to be getting into motoGP a lot more than now. F1 just continues to die a little bit for me.

The FIA are the (slow lingering) death of F1

Todt is, and always has been, a disgrace.

If safety is the overall priority, maybe they should just sit all the drivers at desks, and have them drive remotely?
