3 times in Canada I noticed Vettel opening his DRS when he was leading. No wonder he gets so far ahead all the time. He's cheating. I can't believe no one noticed this.

It is controlled "automatically" so if you are NOT within 1 sec of the car ahead of you(including "lapped cars") the system will not allow the wing to open. Meaning even if you press the button it will not open the wing. That is how it is designed to work. If you have visual evidence otherwise, I am sure the FIA would be interested....

How did he open it at the very end of the race? He clearly crosses the start/finish line and opens the slot then closes it only to open it once more. Clearly there was no car ahead of him at least within one second. Out of curiousity, why the quotation around automatically in your post?

The way I understand it, the FIA system detects the 1 sec interval then appropriately allows the trailing car to use/not use the system. This is done in my term automatically. Thats all. Perhaps you would use a different word to describe this function. I deleted my recording of the race, therefore I don't have the ability to watch the closing lap. Good catch by you though! Also during the event Matchett and Hobbs questioned whether Alonso passed under a yellow flag. They even had a replay of what appeared to support their case. At that very moment, a Blue flag was also being displayed for slower traffic(a Sauber I think). Alonso did make the pass, but I don't know if the Blue flagged car was actually up to racing speed. Good racing behind Vettel, I enjoyed it.

I re-recorded it last night just to make sure I wasn't crazy and I did see his slot opened right around the start/finish line. I also didn't see any other cars ahead within 1 second. I saw the Alonso pass and it was too hard to tell with the camera angles I saw. I would say it could go either way. It was some good racing behind him for sure. Kimi didn't have a very god day and lost an extra point in the last lap to Massa who looks like he is driving his tail off for a new contract again.

Here we go again with the tires. That's absolutely insane the way those things were just exploding like that. Race wise I thought it was another good one. I was grinning ear to ear when Vettels gear box went out. So glad he didn't get any points.

Great race weekend. Lotus had an amazing race. Nice to see Kimi on the podium. I was surprised by the stewards dealing with Webbers pit gaff after the race rather than give him a drive through of some type. Glad the camera man was ok and I saw that they won't allow them on the pits anymore except behind the wall. That guy got smoked by that tire!

Holy crap! Where the hell did RoGro find the speed? I'm wondering if Lotus have made some awesome tweaks to try and entice Kimi to stay on for next year. Honestly though, I would like to see him driving for Lotus than Red Bull. The BS that comes with Vettel is a huge distraction and the way they've treated Webber in the past is suspect. How many times has his KERS crapped out on him? It happened again in qualifying. It's like they slap his car together and say "here ya go!" Where as Vettel gets the best they have.

Good race today. IMHO RoGro got royally screwed and I think it's because of his race history. There was no need for a drive through. Glad to see Lewis win for Merc finally. I was really glad to see Kimi hold off the pissant Vettel at the end. Of course he was crying on the radio for no reason whatsoever. Makes me hope even more Kimi doesn't end up on RBR next year. He and RoGro make a hell of a combo right now and I can only hope that continues for the rest of the season.

Monza this weekend fellas. Always a good one. Good for Ricciardo getting the nod to RBR. Means Kimi stays put hopefully. Race on!

Ditto for me...Local Fox channel for the 1st 2 hours, then 618(FS2) for mid race, finish on 219(FS1)...also a Pre-Race show 1/2 hour before the race on 618(FS2).  Hopefully they can get this switching around solved, but it is the only 24hr event. I hope Sebring will be on 1 channel thru out....Regardless though, RACING IS BACK!!!!  :joy: :joy:
