    It depends on what kind of innovation you're talking about. I would call the development of the engines innovative; I would be less generous with the term if all you're doing is adding a few square inches of cardboard to a front wing so elaborate that it coyld

    Seems like a bit of a reach to me. He should have been penalised for it because it was bordering on dangerous driving - he seemed to think he could trip everyone up - but I'm guessing that there wasn't a specific penalty for it so impeding others was the best thet could do.

    Neither do I, but if Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat are behind it, then I doubt it's stunt casting. They plot things out pretty intricately - they set up the Redbeard subplot in the second season of "Sherlock" even though it didn't pay off until the fourth season. So my guess is that they've had...

    Did Rowland get penalised for the restart? I assume he did - Wikipedia had him down as finishing tenth, but now he's seventeenth. If so, what did he get penalised for? At the time, the commentators pointed out that the rule about falling too far behind the safety car only applies when the lights...

    Really? Why, then, is it that another driver set all of these records first? Hamilton might have won the British Grand Prix five times, but Schumacher won the French Grand Prix eight times. This is precisely what I mean when I say Hamilton is misrepresented.

    Which is a good thing, but it would have been cheaper and easier to factor that into the initial redesign of the circuit. It's like building a residential subdivision - you figure out the drainage before you build anything.

    Perhaps, but they have a much less pronounced shape to their screens than the shield.

    I get where Vettel is coming from, though. His vision is already slightly distorted by the curvature of his visor. He's then looking through the curvature of the shield, and the shape of the two are completely different. The visor is a consistent concave shape whereas the shield has a lomg...

    If the truck drivers drive like Kvyat, it might explain why Sainz's car was delivered to Silverstone in such a way that it failed scrutineering.

    I said that it should be at the same place the championship started out. It can be at Silverstone without being the British Grand Prix. As the 1000th race, it should be a celebration of the sport. Which is why I suggested a name like the "Millenial Grand Prix". It should be like the 100th...

    No, I'm genuinely curious. It was a problem because there were large puddles of standing water on the surface of the circuit. It's always been an issue because the circuit is in a large catchment area, so it takes a long time for the water level to drop. But on this occasion, there was...

    Haven't they improved the drainage since then? It was a farce a few years ago - around the time the circuit was reconfigured - and I seem to remember promises to fix it at the time, but I don't know if they were ever made good on.

    Wikipedia says the weather was "Sunny, mild, dry, Air Temp: 10°C". Okay, so it was a little cold. But it wasn't cold and wet and miserable.
