The diffence between Vettel and Alonso's whining was that Vettels got televised. Alonso complained repeatedly about Vettel as well.

Btw Alonso was the one who actually got a warning from the stewards for going off-limits (without receiving any further penalty despite repeating the offence).


In Topic: Best beaches in Greenland?....

Been told they reversed the names to discourage the tourists.  Greenland is really "Ice"land, and Iceland is really "Green"land.

 

Any truth to this rumour?

Probably as much truth as to any other 1000 year old story. The story is that Erik the Red was expelled from Iceland and came to Greenland. He named it Greenland to make it sound more attractive to settlers. I am not sure tourism was strong at the time, since it was  the year of 982  :D

Great the have goal decision technology now, so they can see if the incorrectly awarded penalty crosses the line :ph34r:

Well, Montreal would be probably the hardest on the system, so I think this was the worst case scenario. I do think that the ability to dial it down will be on tap shortly though.

You think Montreal is going to be harder on the system than Imola?
 
 
 
 
I should have said "to date"
They are not racing F1 at Imola.

I would not say team orders but I would say Alonso had a better strategy. Early in the race he tried to make a move on Kimi and it did not work so like a smart driver/engineer would do he came in to create some separation from Kimi and made that work. Kimi burned his tyres trying to stay in front and in the end it beat him.

Exactly my point. Because it's not Alonso or Raikkonen who decides when to stop. It's Ferrari. And Ferrari decided twice to favor Alonso over Raikkonen. First when they pitted Alonso before Raikkonen, despite Raikkonen being ahead. When that didn't work, they put Alonso on a three stop strategy and Raikkonen on a two stop strategy, and finally got what they wanted.

 

Ferrari fucked Raikkonen in 2009 and now it looks like they are doing it again.
