    It's a testament to the man that he's shown up all year and yet again almost single handedly dragged Lotus into a strong position. It's also pretty clear they aren't supporting him on-track anymore either. I wouldn't go as far to say they are purposefully hindering his races so that  'cash for points' debt doesn't increase significantly, but....

    He should do a NASCAR style start and park for the remaining races.

    I wonder if Grosjean has been paid on time? What with him being managed by Bouiller and all, can't imagine the boss would put his 10% at risk.

    I didn't know Brawn was going!? I've been under stone for a few days.

    Wow. Wonder if Williams could afford him? Or could he afford Williams? I have fingers crossed for a Williams revival next year.

    I think Grosjean is paid directly by Total.

    Yeah, to be honest I think they've pretty much given up on people driving within the lines.

    Seems like all the 'second drivers' are coming out on top today.

    Also, looks like Kimi has been punted to the back of the grid for failing a floor test after qualli. Not to be a cynic but is this the FIA's way of spicing up the recent races? ;)

    I'm surprised it didn't havppen to Webber (or will the gear box mysteriously fail tonight)

    Anyone else seen Ted's Qualifying Notebook this weekend? Definitely one of his better ones.

    A few things he said that I thought were interesting, Grosjean hasn't been paid by Lotus either but like Psychotext said he's had the money from Total to keep him going. He also asked Claire Williams if Brawn was joining the team and her reaction seemed a little to reserved and not the usual flat out denial so who knows?

    Turn on, watch the start, see Vettel go off into the distance and switch off.

    Since lap 2 I've been reading about Doom's monsters on the game's wiki.

    Can someone tell me how the hell Sutil got away with that? He cut the ENTIRE FUCKING CORNER, overtook 2 cars and the stewards did absolutely fuck all!

    Pretty much covered by avoiding an incident. Borderline though.

    I imagine Alonso will be in trouble for going off the road round JEV.

    Aye. Had a few laughs with Teds Notebook this time around. Very interesting too. Would love to see Brawn go and help kick start Williams again.

    On the race, outside of Vettels crazy dominance (totally mental) most of the rest was decent.

    Sutil and Alonso lucky to get away with their moves, although Alonso to be investigated after the race? Grid penalty for USA?

    Now to look forward to Vettel's dominance next season. Hope he wins the championship after one race.

    Hopefully they'll just accept that he's the best driver and give it to him anyway. Just give him the winner's trophy every race without him having to bother winning it. #1 baby!

    Just watched the highlights. Don't know what's happened to Alonso but I didn't think it's worthy of punishment, he came out alongside the other car and you are meant to leave space for one car alongside you on the track.

    Thought Di Resta had a quality drive right when he needed it. He still does daft things some times but even so he seems to have outperformed Sutil this season so hopefully he'll get a drive next season.

    A few moments but mostly Zzzzzzz.
    **** Vettel.
  • Deleted user 3 November 2013 17:51:34
    Boring race, never liked this track..

    Most interesting moment: Alonso exiting the pit's and hitting the curb's (currently under investigation)

    Too bad for Kimi..
