Short memories too on the dangers in refuelling. Maybe that and the spectacle of something happening ( as in a break in normal procession) is behind it.

Why don't they ask the drivers ?

I think they should bring it back pre-war Le Mans style - using a bloke with a jerry can in one hand and a funnel in the other. Oh, and the obligatory fag in his mouth. Should liven things up a bit. :y

Why self serve? Let them battle through the attached M&S like we have to. ;D

It certainly is. The most extraordinary race I have seen in a long time, for all sorts of reasons.  :y

I always like damp races. Quite a few surprises.

Vettel drove a good race.

Some rubbish team decisions.

I thought it was a bit dull.  The weather spiced it up, but ultimately didn't make it a better "race"

It wasn't a great race by any means (although that Irish nobead presenter on C4 said it was the greatest race he had ever seen !  ::) ) - but it was extraordinary in many different ways.
The biggest shock for me, apart from Hamilton making a human mistake, was the complete chaos in the Mercedes pit when he arrived unexpectedly. It was like Laurel & Hardy meets the Chuckle Brothers.  :o

In no way could that debacle be described as a race.

That did raise a smile for me yesterday, although I do loosely support them as they are based in our small little town.

Scarborough today, Whitby yesterday. Lovely weather and both very busy  :y
We are back in Thornton le Dale for the week. It's the annual show on Wednesday, so we'll have to go missing, too many farmers and tractor enthusiasts for my liking.  ;D
