I dont understand or have never seen such poorly thought about processes than in F1. From the double points fiasco of last year to the stupid inexplicably complicated qualifying system of this year, both abandoned after the solitary attempt. I mean dont they have a test bed for this? GP2 or one of the stock car races where they could try this for season or two before trying it. And this is not an accessory chance or a tertiary change this totally bears weight on the outcome of the race. I wish Bernie and his squadron had a little more brain than getting drunk at a farmhouse in the french countryside and saying "hey this sounds cool lets try it.. how bad can it be". Such stupidity does harm to a sport that's already reeling under the pressure of the financial crisis and lack of interest.

+Stuart Souter Lack of interest as in growth as compared to other sports. Granted that F1 is not easy to understand as say a football, but, racing has universal appeal. In the large growth markets F1 has not made much progress. So, while its following remains flat it cannot be good for the sport on the whole. This is why you see only a few teams a few engine makers and a few sponsors mostly the same ones over and over. If F1 had grown big in China per se then former teams like Toyota could consider a comeback. If there was a push even Audi (who were slated for a team last year before the VW scam broke out) would have been an engine maker. Unfortunately, the bottom half of the table is always struggling hand to mouth to make it work. And when you're under nourished you really cannot contest against the big guys. This is what is hurting the sport. In addition any 'gimmick' change makes them look so stupid too is what I'm trying to say.

General question to the aficionados. Why doesn't the FIA find a more reasonable solution to the safety car deployment issue. The drivers up front get their race effort/lead nullified for no fault of theirs. It's absurd to do all the hard work just to get it nullified. With the VSC they can mandate when the subsequent drivers take off after the safety car is pulled off thereby maintaining nearly the same lead or time difference if not exactly the same. But to be its an unaddressed travesty that a driver has to change his strategy and risk his effort for someone else's mistake??

When will the investigation into the instructions to Rosberg be done?

I'm not a fan of Rosberg but it seems like the team crossed the line and if anything, the constructor should suffer any penalty, not Rosberg individually.

After the conclusion of one of the most boring races I've seen thus far it is apparent that the winner of the race is 'radio blackout'. How stupid is this regulation that the drivers are now expected to be engineers to alter settings on the car. Kimi & Hammy struggled with some setting which was taking their attention away from the racing on a dangerous track and onto some experiments on the setting which seem to have worked eventually for Hammy but not for Kimi. Anyway, the radio blackout also makes a race boring and the FIA has underestimated its entertainment value to the audience... bring it back

+Uros Kralj can you explain how banning radio all together will make the races better and more interesting? I dont see how it makes a difference.

A general question about VSC: I still havent understood the concept of the VSC. I know how it came about after the JB accident and all, but, what happens when the VSC is deployed. Is there an automatic override on the engines by the race director that lowers their speed? What does it mean when they have a lap time to keep with and they have to come under that time? How do they know what speed to drive at once the VSC is deployed?

I think it could be similar to the pitlane speed limiter when vsc is deployed.this might limit the speed so that the times remain same .

This is a SCAM for tourists... DO NOT VENTURE. We went to have lunch at this place today May 1, 2016 two families a total of 4 adults and 4 children. They offered us an 'ALL YOU CAN EAT' menu. The waitress said we could order one dish per person and so we did. The dish came with soups and starters. We were interested in the main course, but, we got the first two since it was part of the package. So, we got the soup and starters and they were huge portions. We couldn't finish them all. Our waitress disappears and a new waiter comes to our table and tells us that if we dont finish the starters he wont be serving us the main course ????. Then points us to the fine print on the bottom of the Menu which says that. It is a tourist SCAM with the modus operandi... --dont point to the fine print dont even mention it and then disclose this little dirty 'SECRET'. I have never EVER seen this at any restaurant EVER. And servers generally tell you if you've over ordered or if you are ordering too little. Seems like a carefully orchestrated SCAM operating due to the non repeat tourist clientele. You have been warned. Go across the street to the Noodle place.
