Yeah I thought that too on one of the interviews on sunday. He's sounding a bit odd.

Vettel was on Letterman.

Sadly I'm not going this year, maybe next. A bit too expensive to go every year but some of the teams have updates coming for this race so it'll be interesting to see if the positions have changed a bit

has maldonado got anything for jumping the start?
don't love alonso but don't blame him for being more than a little shaken up at that first corner chaos. grosjean should be watched like a hawk now, hes getting involved/causing a few too many incidents for my liking..

No further action against Schumacher.
No further action on Webber's unsafe release.
€10'000 fine for Caterham for unsafe release.
Maldonado has 2x5 place penalties. One for the jump start and one for colliding with Glock

As for Grosjean....
An FIA statement read:

“[It was an ] extremely serious breach of the regulations which had the potential to cause injury to others. It eliminated leading championship contenders from the race. The stewards note the team conceded the action of the driver was an extremely serious mistake and an error of judgement. Neither the team nor the driver made any submission in mitigation of penalty.”

Grosjean was also fined 50,000 Euros.

Lots happened today.

What about Lewis on twitter? Acting like last year a little as he had all his chums with him.
Bernie saying Schumi away this year then tries to back track with Eddie Jordan or is this just to speed up Schumi decision?
Pastor maybe needs to be sacked as he`s just getting to be a liability with everyone.....he ain`t Ayrton Senna i.e. can intimidate other drivers

To me today`s crash was a driving mistake but because it happened by another younger rookie driver, I`d say this sort of driver will be reviewed in future as if this sort of thing keeps happening age limits or younger drivers won`t be allowed in the faster cars or top teams.
