They have to 'prove' there is sufficient damage. If you build that part to fail after qualifying it gives you the chance to do a lovely gearbox rebuild before the race.

Yup, just build a part that fails right after qualifying. It's soooo obvious.

Much better than those amateurs they get for NASCAR/IndyCar sometimes as well.

De La Rosa said 6-8 seconds.

 

These strategy predictions are all well and good, but are they based on an optimal race without a single hitch?

 

One team mistake, driver error, poor pitstop or slow start then this goes out of the window. I'm pretty sure the gap between many drivers is over 6-8 seconds over a race.

Maldonado's front wing was already damaged when he came together with Sutil, which suggests something happened before that too..

Aye it's a bit rubbish. Sutil was considerate enough to crash next to a gap in the barriers as well.

We're having a poll here to guess what lap Sebs drama queen engineer gets on the radio and gives us all false hope.

So far we have people voting for lap: 38,40,45 and 47 lol
