Heroes

Kevin Magnussen – first pole, in a Haas. Right tire at the right time. I’ve never seen where, barring crashes/mechanical failures, where teammates qualified first and dead last.

Russell – first win, controlled the race starting first, finishing first, and rarely in any danger. Has a good rapport with his team made sure that strategy worked flawlessly

Hamilton/Mercedes – second place, great work by the team to continue pushing in 2022. It might make sense to focus on the 2023 cars, but when you’ve got a winning culture, you need to win now as well as planning for the futures. I think it says a lot about the organization Toto has put together that the team can do their best when their leader isn’t even there.

Ferrari – Solid third and fourth place finishes. Solid race from Sainz, and a miraculous 4th for LeClerc when I was sure Norris had put his car in the wall!

Zeroes

Norris/Ricciardo bad day for both drivers when it comes to judging space

Verstappen/LeClerc – a lot of teammate related whining on the radio. It’s a bad look

Alpine – the team doesn’t seem to have much control over the drivers. I know that things are going to shuffle up next year, and it’s hard to think like teammates when the future is set, but it’s part of the team culture, and it seems like a mess at Enstone.

Main race – Heroes – Mercedes, George, Lewis, Alonso
Zeros – Verstappen (for deliberately trying to ruin Hamilton’s race), Verstappen (for going against team orders and stealing points from his team mate)

Heroes.
Lewis and Russell.
Great race in a race winning car.
Alonso.
Wonderful race and showed his old self.

Zeros.
FIA and Stewards for not allowing all cars to unlap at the end of the last Safety Car. Shades of Abu Dhabi incompetence once again. I thought you idiots sorted this sh*t.
Stewards.
Norris’s car was in a dangerous position so they called a VSC and sent out marshalls to push it. There was no safe place to push to as the recovery crane sat and did not come out. WTF!!

Max, Max, Max and Max.
What a petulant child and whining baby he still is. I thought it was just last season and he had grown out of this stage but, no, he showed his true colors again today in his radio remarks and for not giving Perez the 6th position. The points will make zero difference to him and all the difference to Checo.
I had watched for many years how Micheal Schumacher showed what a horrible sportsman he is by his cheating and dangerous racecraft. Max has shown again that he surprises even MS.
Max’s attempted pass on Lewis when Lewis clearly had the racing line and pushing Lewis off track was in no way a racing accident and Max was given a 5-second penalty for it. It should have been more.

:yahoo: Cracking race, I love the Brazilian GP, ​​Well done George, you certainly deserved that win.

An aircraft landing is just a controlled crash.

Trouble is Willy it’s because they did precisely follow procedure as written down to the letter this strange issue arose.
A back marker pitted under s/c and technically unlapped themselves, unlike Indycar or most other series in F1 you can’t gain more than one lap back under the s/c period.

This just goes to show looser ruleset which can be interpreted to suit changing circumstance by a qualified referee are the best way to go. :D

Can’t be done now in F1 for few years of course because of the shitstorm that followed final race in 21 – be careful what you wish for, following precisely everything in a very long rulebook will throw up unexpected craziness. :tease:

The regulations require all lapped cars to be given the opportunity to unlap themselves if any are – there’s nothing in the regulations that says that an unlap earlier in the SC period exempts a driver from this treatment (unlike Indycars). Looks like the FIA ​​got it wrong and decided not to bother following the regulations – again.

True Alia, but if the computer has registered a car technically unlapping itself it wont count as a lapped car.
Strange indeed and maybe a flaw in the system that needs ironing out, however computer says – NO – can’t unlap yourself twice. :tease:
