Brought to you by TheJudge13 contributor Mattpt55 – the best in Scrutineering, Stewards’ Decisions, and other assorted FIA documents looked at slightly irreverently
There’s the race we see on telly, and then there’s the race behind the scenes. One rarely talked about by reporters but told in part by the official FIA documents. Here is a selection of this weekend’s documents for you to peruse at your leisure. Enjoy. Wonder where all this great stuff came from? Right Here
Give them a fence and they’ll take a mile
Some of those numbers are getting pretty close to 5. I’m looking at you Kamui
“Re-nominated”? Can’t we leave the politics out of it and just go racing
Good thing they didn’t replace the whole gearbox
I’m sure there’s a dirty joke in there somewhere
Now we know why he threw himself in front of Seb’s car. It was a cry for help.
From the Dept of Hard Work
Guess we know who won’t be at Vijay’s last party before they confiscate his yacht
From the Sat on the Naughty Step Dept
Guess a bigger budget does buy a faster car.
From the Dept of Shiny New Pieces
1+4=? Yep, works out the same either way.
Lots and lots of Grid Penalties
From the Dept of I Don’t Think You Get It Yet
No matter how many times you say it, it doesn’t mean it’s true. And isn’t this F1? Can’t be *that* complicated.
From the Dept of Excessive Hyperbole
Props to Dieter for not giving up. Also for knowing the correct answer. And for serving Horner. All in one question.
From the Dept of At Least He’s Amusing, if not entirely truthful
From the Dept of We’re Totally Not French Surrender Monkeys
Ok, so we *are* totally surrendering, but we are *not* all French.
From the Dept of I Get It Now
So Haas starts in 2015 unless Customer Cars aren’t approved until 2016. K Then.
They highlighted it for me. And ouch.
Could you re-explain that again?
How many races are left?
I’m sure it’s just a massive coincidence that only Mercedes have the latest software.
As a teenager he’s lucky he didn’t lose his license.
Stewards were wearing their judgey-pants today.
Tell that to the guy behind me honking in bumper to bumper traffic.
Well, that will stop exactly no one from arguing about it.
Would have been more believable without the ear to ear grin.
Laughing all the way to the banker *Crickets*
Maybe *this* is why they don’t call you “Cerebral” .
I guess they felt they had to ask him something. Too bad it wasn’t anything interesting.
