    I am not. But if I was there as driver I would for sure. That is call respect!

    CL reminds me of Jean Alesi. JA was great and come to Ferrari as a prodigy, but than Ferrari ruined his career with mediocre cars

    Either way, a huge points day versus Red Bull:

    38-10 preliminary depending on whether Albon gets +5.

    Great news as well.

    I wasn't around back then but let's not delude ourselves here. Jean and Gerhard were two cuts below Ayrton and Michael, at least. It'd been great had he stayed alongside Michael but I can't blame him for going to Benetton at that time.

    You don't even know him, I don't get what a different lifestyle has to do with people, especially when he does a lot for kids unlike many other drivers

    GB was always great 2nd driver, but JA was really talented!

    Why have a problem with different fans, I love the sport as a whole and have no problem with any of them. This isn't football.

    OK. to cut this pointless discussion, I'll be more precise. I don't like him AT ALL as his personality on the race weekend! OK?!

    Jean deserved to win at Monza either 1994 or 1995. That was heartbreak for him. Overall though, Gerhard was an equally good servant and actually beat Jean in 1994 and back in the late 80's he was really quick. Both were actually close with Mansell in terms of talent, but had the wrong cars, for sure. Still moving them on for Michael was of course the best decision made in F1 history given how he transformed the team. I'd loved to see what Michael could've done with the 1994-95 cars of ours though, they were racing Herbert fair and square in 1995 and seemed like better packages than 1996.

    I still remember those heartbreaking races in Monza 94 and 95. Jean was king of bad luck and misfortunes

    Do you know everyone out there in SPA? Did they told you personally that all of them would be wearing black ribbon today?

    Forza Charles!

    I am of course very happy that he finally got his first win. He thoroughly deserved it. Bravo!

    I'm also mightily relieved that Ferrari didn't 'sabotage' his strategy just to benefit Vettel. I admit I assumed the worst when they kept Charles out for all those laps. Hearing the pit wall instructing Sebastian to move over for Charles was music to my ears. At least Ferrari proved that they can support the better driver on the day. Thank goodness.

    However, I do think they screwed up Vettel's chances. I don't believe that 4th was inevitable. I think he could have at least tried to fight Bottas if they'd brought him in some laps earlier. I felt sorry for Vettel in that way. And, yes, he did hold up Lewis for a while and that must've helped Charles too, so kudos to him for that. That was a bad call.

    Anyway, I'm still thrilled for Charles and (finally) a win for Ferrari after too much time. Relief can be super sweet too.

    Ok, before lap 15, Merc tells Bottas that it's important to close the gap. Then when Vettel comes in you see the merc pit crew assembled to make a pitstop. Now how is that not a dummy pitstop?

    In 2015:
    Having been alerted about Mercedes’ actions, the FIA now intends to make sure that teams are clear that ‘fake’ stops are not allowed.

    The governing body has revealed that it will adopt a zero tolerance approach to the matter, and will tell teams in a briefing ahead of the Hungarian Grand Prix that any repeat in the future will be viewed as a rules breach.

    Under repeat circumstances, teams will have to prove to the FIA that there was a genuine reason for them to stop if they are to escape sanction.

    This will include radio communication evidence to show that the driver was under the impression he was to make a stop.

    The FIA spokesman added: “Going into the pitlane like this, for no valid reason, is not allowed but the difficulty would be proving it was a clear breach.

    So how does this all work then FIA?

    OK. I rest my case. No point of arguing with you. You know best! Have a nice life!
