^ Agree. 10 Sport/OneHD is a load of rubbish. I wish foxtel would buy the broadcasting rights in Australia. I had the pleasure of watching the British Grand Prix from my hotel room in the Maldives on ESPN. The commentators knew their sh*t and it puts channel 10 to shame.

This needs to be revived! Especially given the atrocious display by Vettel last night.

Atrocious? What's everyone's problem with good wheel to wheel racing? If that was Lewis Hamilton that Seb passed no one would have an issue.

Yes Mark was saving fuel but they all have an opportunity to put as much fuel as they like in the car. If Mark / his engineers opted for too little then that's their problem and it shouldn't hold back Seb.

The only change on the podium should've been Rosberg in 3rd. Lewis didn't deserve that place.

Ps: I'm anti Seb and actually support Lewis but first and foremost I support quality racing and none of this ridiculous team order sh!t where the faster driver isn't allowed to pass!

I agree with you to an extent, I think that team orders shouldn't dictate drivers decisions, unfortuately it's not a perfect world and team orders will exist whether they are banned or not. However, when it comes to an prior understanding that both drivers are to put their cars into conservation mode, with the agreement that they will see out the race in those placings, only for the team mate to use up that opportunity to play catch up and then snatch the glory? Seems a bit shady to me!

However, Mark did try the same sneaky tactics back in Britain 2010, people shouldn't forget that, but as we know, that didn't work out too well!

Either way, I am in complete agreement with you regarding actual racing, I would rather see some wheel to wheel racing than some namphy decisions from above giving us a predictable finish. Either way, it makes for very entertaining viewing. the tension in the driver's lounge in the post race was so thick. If the camera wasn't there, I'm sure we would have seen Seb come out to the podium with a black eye!

I have a feeling it will be a good season!

Having said that, it's stuff like this that is why Seb is multi-WDC. Same vein as Prost, Senna, Schuey. They all had the desire to win at all costs, regardless of the consequences.
