Horner reckons the 3 place penalty for speeding under a red flag is a rubbish rule, and the best way to hurt a driver is to give him a fine. Most of these drivers are millionaires, a fine does not hurt them. A sporting penalty hurts them way more. Stop talking rubbish Horner.

Rainy fridays are sooo lame... But no one beats FIA. Interrupting a session because of gravel. XD
And then, when you think FIA already nailed it in terms of nonsense, they simply move on and top it. :lol:

Sorry, was fallen asleep because of boredom. But cannot await WFE (World Formula Entertainment) in ~2025. LM and FIA will make it possible. You read it here first. ;)

If the FIA has any respect for the Jules Bianchi incident , they should punish vettel , this was not a yellow flag it was not a double waved yellow , but it was RED
He speed up to 160 km/h based on info he had from the team , which has failed in the past to warn him who was on track before him.
He should have gone under 100 km/h to get back to the pits

Doesn't make much of a difference in the race though. Pace wise the best he can do is P3 on Sunday. Doesn't matter if the starts third or sixth.
