I actually think that was fair.

The guy in front making it hard for the guy in back to pass is perfectly legal in my books if the cars are fighting for the same position.

The first tap was done by the Corvette, which would have caused the Corvette to win the race, the big crash was because the Porsche blocked the Corvette, but the Corvette tried squeezing through.

It was a single small dirty move on both sides, which is why I think everything equalled out.

this, but when you factor in all the other dirty moves from magnussen leading up to the crash, bergmeister comes out looking like a saint. IMHO

Well, I don't think the Porsche should have pushed him ALL the way into the wall. Corvette did have the Porsche beat on the straight, and even had position for the pass until the Porsche took that away. idk, I think both made mistakes but whatever

Should have got the Astro. Fuel gauge works fine.

The Astro was so much fun this morning. Working climate control was amazing. The interior heats up so much faster now that the vents can be controlled, and using the vents is awesome in itself. Since they are all vacuum powered, you get awesome Startrek doorway noises when you choose which vents you want open. PTSH-SSSssssss...
