    When I watched this yesterday, I absolutely knew Webber was gone catch hell for that move. Although, until I saw your post, I hadn't heard any news since the end of the race. I couldn't recall seeing anyone doing this before and to me it just looked incredibly dangerous. When you consider how far safety in F1 has come in the last few decades to protect not just the drivers, but the pit crew and now the media in the pit lane, Webber's move seemed to go against all of that. I went looking for news about this incident and it seems this has happened many times before... that I wasn't aware of. Sure it looks nice for the spectators, but all it takes is for one driver who hasn't slowed down much on his in-lap to come around the corner too quickly and Webber could have been killed.

    From what I understand, Webber received the 10 place grid penalty because this was his third reprimand of the season and that's the automatic penalty. It was unfortunate, but I think Webber's at the point of his F1 career where none of that matters much to him any more.

    Yes it's happened many times before.

    I disagree on the reprimand. It's one of the few "human" moments in the sport that isn't entirely contrived. The press conferences are an elaborate advertising campaign, the drivers generally retreat into clima caravans or 5* hotels immediately, everyone's a billionaire, and there's almost nothing with which one can relate.



    The ride back to the pits, and whatever it is that Ecclestone wants us to believe is his hair, are two of the very few traditions left at this point. People that want something sensible buy anoraks, they generally don't do Grands Prix.

    Consider that Senna not only hitched a ride from Mansell (above) but also at one point punched Eddie Irvine (something about a mountain bike?). It was all part of the sport and it still should be part of the sport.

    Just IMO.

    EDIT: Heh, Senna is wearing Diadora. Wish I could find a NOS pair of Martin Mulligan Diadora tennies. Those were the days. And Mansell is advertising beer. Haven't seen it at the grocer's in a while. I wonder.

    From Wiki: This race set the theme of controversy for Irvine that would follow him for the next couple of years. Seeing Ayrton Senna coming up behind him in his mirror, Irvine allowed him to pass. However, when Senna could not lap Damon Hill who Irvine was racing against at the time, he felt he was being held up and, amazingly for a rookie against an all-time great, unlapped himself and then tried himself to overtake Hill.[4] Incensed at being held up behind the Irvine–Hill battle for more than a lap, Senna walked into the Jordan motorhome after the race and punched Irvine in the face.[5]

    MS who is never known to lose his temper got so close to punching Coulthard at Spa. If it weren't for the mechanics,we'd have seen a nice fight.

    Sadly today's fights have come down to showing fists in protest & screaming matches.

    Yes well today we have brand new, ultra-modern, highly sterile courses to consider, and each driver is an industry that supports numerous people, from business advisors to stylists. We can't have that sort of thing, someone might break a nail or get a run in their tights.

    There were people on the grid this century who's fathers had gotten out of the cockpit and punched someone last century. Even in the car, some of the greatest in my lifetime have outright rammed other greats.

    Now? Well I suppose Button's DQ for illegal fuel tanks is some sort of consolation -- people are still breaking the rules as such rather than breaking the rules and being rewarded -- but ramming and fighting seem to be a thing of the past.

    Money changes everything.

    What fascinates me is that a Brazilian driver driving for an Italian team & a Spaniard driving for an English team,neither of whose native tongue is Italian, curse at each other & argue in Italian. Italian always seems to make everything sound more dramatic than it actually is.

    I wish Raikkonen would learn Italian. At least it would make his already interesting radio transmissions,more interesting.

    I thought they made English the lingua franca for all transmissions, to facilitate selling commercials vs. actually communicating etc. So Ferrari would even today transmit in English not just to Alonso but even to an Italian -- Alboreto, say. Renault would transmit in English even to a Frenchman, and so on.

    Most public radio transmissions from Ferrari to Alonso are in Italian. If I'm not mistaken Toro Rosso also communicates in Italian now & then.

    Yes, English is the only language that is supposed to be spoken on the radio. And yet, somehow, Ferrari never get fined.

    I wonder if it's legal to restrict language in the EU. Airlines are a special case, as is NATO. For a corporation to do so doesn't sound all that founded. Fining Ferrari for using Italian -- one of over 20 official languages -- in the EU generally is odd; doing it at the Italian or San Marino Grands Prix would be a lot more than odd. I can't imagine realistically expecting that to stick.

    In fact even one of the dozens of official minority languages could work I think. I wonder if in Italy they could transmit in Greco... Hmm...

    Anyway I'm underwhelmed by the notion of a lingua Franca in a sport/fashion show/etc that is a modern GP.
