We're told that fast cars need 1.5-2seconds advantage over a slow car to be able to easily overtake (hence the changes to the aero regs. etc). If these backmarkers are 4-5 seconds off the pace they shouldn't be anything more than a blip for the front runners. The blue flags will also make things relatively easy for the fast guys too.
It's all just moaning from drivers who realise that they might look really stupid
if they get stuck behind a 5-second-slow car for too long.
Anyone remember Coulthard sat behind a much slower car at Monaco for something like 20 laps a few years ago? I can see some drivers doing that sort of thing this year too.
