    Best part of the final was Bakkerud coming past everyone on the outside as they came off their joker lap. He had the extra speed but it still looked spectacular..

    Should be possible to do this electronical in 2017, so the drivers see while driving, that they have been punished by the jury, or professional referees. Preferably ex drivers that know what they are doing.....

    Only not. Because Block didn't gain a position and Eriksson continued where he was to set a good time.

    Shouldn't make a difference, that move was out of order. Just because Eriksson held onto the position (by his own skill) doesn't mean that Block shouldn't be reprimanded.
    You're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.

    Yeah he's on the brakes, but that move was never on. Eriksson turns in but Ken just didn't bother.

    23:35 Johan shows how it should be done.

    KE-KB first contact is IMO a race incident. KE goes for the gap and KB have already re-aligned his car towards the bend.
    KE-KB second contact , KB is fully responsible for hitting KE from behind. There was no gap and Kevin was ahead but Block
    just didn't care and smashed into KE on purpose.
    ...Funny how ev'rything was roses when we held on to the guns...

    Yep, completely agree that neither are at fault for first touch, that one was just a by product of the weird joker merge at Barcelona.

    That's the same reasoning I got home in Norway in an event, when I asked why to guy who ran into be didn't get any penalty. "He was on the brakes". Never mind that he turned me in to a wall, that broke all the engine mountings and some more on my car. It was all fine because he "was on the brakes". Imo, that's not how it works.
