    Tough but fair I think, there were marshals working in an exposed area.

    He's just said on Spanish TV that he lost power without warning.

    The Force India drivers once again in contention for donkeys of the race. Idiots.
    Oct. 31, 1999 - one of the blackest days in motorsports.

    You have to wonder if he had no power because he couldn't be bothered to press the throttle any more.
    Apparently he asked if any rain was forecast, got told no, then shortly afterwards retired.

    Although I think it's just Pérez - he pulled that crap out in lap 1 and he's done it again. I wish he got a harsh penalty for that kind of mindless driving.

    Oh boy, they have a serious HR problem right now. I fear it may be so far gone the only solution is to get rid of one of the drivers.

    I was thinking that right now, but the thing is that they don't really have a suitable replacement who won't lose them points in the WCC. It's super difficult to jump into a car and be competitive without proper testing beforehand.

    Otmar just saying that's the end of the two of them being allowed to race each other, it will be team orders between them for the rest of the season.
