Lance is just suffering from his lack of experience at this track. But having said that he does seem to perform better in the races. AS for Massa I just hope he can bring it home in the points.

Hi guys I'm attending this race today sitting in the grandstand located on the shirt straight after turn two, hopefully we will see our guys score a few points with Lamce coming through the field.

It's a very hot day here, reaching 29 degree in the afternoon

Incredible. Absolutely a bummer of an end of this season. Hamilton going to a 60 point lead in the championship. How painful.

Boy the race and championship are pretty and I hate to use this word boring. Shame that Vettel retired and that Lance went off he track dropping well down the order. So far a single point for Felipe is looking to be about it.

The tyres let him down but he left the door wide open as usual.

Massa needed to pass Palmer earlier, that cost him.

No points for Renault or STR, so some consolation.

Ferrari has thrown away buckets of points in these last races . . . absolutely no chance now.

2 stopper could be a better strategy. no pace and no tyre life. all cars were quicker than williams today

The car was awful, nevertheless Felipe did pretty well to score a point.

I'm not sure if anyone else noticed and correct me if I'm wrong but I'm sure half of Massas T-wing was missing. That could explain why the car was not performing as expected.

Paddy's race notes confirm that Felipe's car was damaged, though there are no specifics.

Yes he went off right in front of me, kicked up a lot of dust and travelled sideways back onto the track, nearly collected a Red Bull in the process.

FULL TRANSCRIPT
Hamilton: "I heard that Sebastian didn't put his steering wheel back on."
Whiting: "Seb actually took his steering wheel with him. I think it was a reasonable common sense approach for us to take, not to do anything about that. A) the race had finished, and b) the car didn't need the steering wheel for the marshals to manoeuvre it. For me, under the circumstances, it was not worth reporting to the stewards."
Grosjean: "Charlie, after the chequered flag are you allowed to undo the belt?"
Whiting: "No."
Grosjean: "Alright."
Whiting: "Any further?"
Grosjean: "Well, Lewis has been doing it quite a lot."
Whiting: "You say undo, or loosen them? I think loosening them is reasonable, don't you? You said undo, I thought you meant take them off completely."
Grosjean: "I don't know if you can really undo them. I'm just asking because I think it's great for the fans but I just wanted to make sure…"
Whiting: "I think at the speeds Lewis was driving at, I would say that's a perfectly reasonable thing to allow you to do."
Grosjean: "So you can undo them?"
Whiting: "Loosen them I said, not undo them. There's a big difference."
Massa: "You cannot loosen them. It's very difficult to. You need to just take it off."


Whiting: "I was asked a question, can you undo them? And I said no you should not undo them but if you can loosen them off, I don't think there's a big issue with that. But you're saying you don't think you can anyway, the only option is to undo them?"
Massa: "Yes."
Whiting: "I don't think this has become a big issue, has it? Lewis, what do you do? Do you loosen them or do you undo them?"
Hamilton [laughing]: "Undo them. I don't do it very often but sometimes, Montreal I did and a few other races."
Whiting: "You may have started something here, Romain."
Grosjean: "I think it's great, it's great for the fans because they get to see a bit more of the drivers, I just wanted to get clarification."
Hamilton: "Why would you need clarification on it?"
Grosjean: "Because sometimes you don't put the steering wheel back on and you can get a fine and it doesn't make sense if the wheels are completely out of the car. I just wanted to know."
Hamilton: "... Interesting."
Whiting: "We can clarify that if you really think it's worth it."
Hamilton: "We're driving so slow but I mean, maybe Sebsatian should keep his on." [Cue laughter around the room]
Vettel [smiling]: "Steering wheel or belt? I'm confused now."


Whiting: "That is something we've seen happen, isn't it [Vettel's crash in Malaysia]? Needn't have of course but it did and something similar could happen."
Grosjean: "I don't want to start an argument or whatever, I just want to know what can we do, what can we not do, what are the rules? It's as simple as that."
Whiting: "I don't think you should undo the belts, I don't think that's a very good thing. I think we've seen what can happen on a slowing down lap. We've seen what can happen on a slowing down lap so I think it's bad practice. I imagined you had loosened off the belts but it appears not to be the case.
Hamilton: "I've only done it when I win to wave to fans."
Whiting: "I understand."
Hamilton: "But I do slow down massively."

Sorry for such a long post but it΄s actualy funny...
