Re: F1...anyone?

I heard that Massa was given team orders to let his teammate pass for position & he ignored the teams orders. They finished 7th & 8th I think, but Massa finished ahead of his teammate. Good for him!

Re: F1...anyone?

o yay! someone else watched the race. Hamilton running away with it was expected. The bulls still have the best aero and chasis by far, those sector 2 high speed trap times were far and away faster than anyone else's.

Some good racing between hulk and alonso. The inside out turn 1 + 2 pass was brilliant to watch. Shame about Kimi getting tagged early by Magnus. Ferrari power is lagging behind both Merc AND renault it seems. Kimi couldn't even pass Grosjean at the end, and ricciardio just powered around alonso at the start. But it seems like they're bringing new engine mapping software next week to bahrain. should bring ~30% increase in engine efficiency.

Good race to watch overall. Also, good job by Massa for not rolling over to team orders. That 7,8,9 battle with bottas and button was fun to watch.

Yeah, they ordered him to let Bottas through bc bottas had 2 lap fresher tires. But earlier in the race, bottas ran felipe off the track and bottas ignored team orders to give the position back. So tit for tat.

i also say that SCH, because Massa was crying on the radio that his teammate was to close to him and he wanted him to back off, so to me Massa looks like a jerk in all of this, if he had not complained, i could have respected him not wanting to drop back

I just hate team orders in F-1.

Re: F1...anyone?

don't know if the commentators were just trying to drum up something (whats new)
but they said
looking at Nico's body language on the podium, they were wondering if he was told to just chill out behind Hamilton (paraphrasing of course)

Looks like Mercedes is the class of the field this year so far.

Re: F1...anyone?

I didn't think that race was particularly great. When two cars "run the show" (especially from the same team, looks like Mercedes is the new Red Bull) I don't think it's interesting. Now WHILE the Mercedes' were racing it was a bit interesting, but it seemed like there may have been "team orders" there at the end? Don't know that to be true, of course, Rosberg just seemed to fall off "rather abruptly"...to me anyway.

...is that a breadstick or are you just happy to see me?
