    Given that RBR are more than likely going to be the team to beat, I say it's a pretty decent bet.

    Because even if Nico finishes 3rd, he still is the world champion. Lewis either needs a DNF for Rosberg, or a Verstappen AND a Ricciardo, which is hard to pull off at Abu Dhabi.

    From what I'm hearing, I missed out on a great race. I had to leave when the second red flag happened because I had work and left very bitter.

    Now I regret not recording this particular GP because when that second red flag came out I thought it was over. So extra bitter today.

    Meh, looking at the end results Max only gained one position so you didn't miss anything :p

    It'd also be good to know what he said in the garage that made Gunther Steiner grab him and have a stern word...

    He was acting like a child, throwing his race gear around the garage.

    On the replay it showed Esteban saying something to Gunther after that and turning to walk away, at which point Gunther grabbed his arm.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Brazil was his last race and they have someone else in the car for Abu Dhabi.

    re aquaplaning: first of all i'm not actually sure its any worse now, i remember some absolute carnages from back and the day. And second, will more downforce help? Cause its not horsepower that is the main difference in the cars of today its downforce.

    I'm watching a replay of the race, and the broadcaster is skipping through the red flags. We jumped ahead from Räikkönen's accident to the second restart. What happened to Palmer? I haven't seen a replay of his retirement. Wikipedia lists his cause as collision damage, so did he hit some of the debris left by Räikkönen?

    He ran into the side of Kvyat (?) when they were slowing down approaching the grid. Clumsy move, likely due to lack of vision.

    Felt like Max was (probably obvious) best under brakes, but seeing him so sideways made me think he could still drive a bit better in the corners, maintain a bit more traction in the rain. He still zoomed out of corners faster, but at the same time it felt like his main successes was braking. Perez did put up a decent fight, so no matter how I look at things, EVERYONE really had to work for their positions today.

    The radio message before he retired is what started the whole thing. That's why that's what I want to know.

    Verstappen wasn't gaining time under braking, it was due to the lines he was taking, he was staying off the rubber much more than everyone else so he had more grip.

    Team needs to get Palmer a tape of the '98 Belgian GP, that way he'll learn exactly what happens when you whip out of the rooster tail of another car like that at the final moment. Even at slow speeds. He's lucky it wasn't worse.

    No, that's just a dim-witted move on Palmer's part. Surely he noticed that the spray was getting thicker, and could have concluded that a car was nearby.

    Has there been an official cause of retirement?

    Bit late to this thread but I thoroughly enjoyed that race. Quite easily one of the best ones of the season and I'm sure I'm not alone in being amazed by Verstappen's save on the run up to the line.

    How does one do that...does he have a pitot tube to measure such? I mean these cars are relatively quick and while I think he should have got out of the spray as soon as he was in it, or half way to have some sort of vision...I don't agree with your assessment.

    I mean this is a move many drivers better than Palmer have fallen into with as bad or worse results. One is the current WDC holder for the past 2 years.

    Grab your pillow and soothing tea, cause you'll find more comfort in that then the prospect of an exciting race I suspect.

    Plenty of former drivers have noted that in those kinds of conditions you use your ears as much as your eyes. The problem for Palmer is that, like his eyes, his ears are connected to his brain.

    Ha. Good look wirh that. I exoect a race with no overtaking at all. It should never be considered a suitable track for the last race. This was the track to end the season on.

    Just watched the race that channel ten aired

    They skipped so many laps(broadcast was 1hr) but man.
    Max was driving like Seena in the wet.

    Abu Dhabi is most likely going to be like every year, a monotonous race with no overtakes at all. After the second red flag, this year's Brazil GP was probably the best one of this season.
