It happened to Bourdais twice.bar555 wrote:3 teams , Torro Rosso (Bourdais) , Honda (Barrichello) & Williams (Nakajima) had a pit stop fire incident Luckily none of the drivers faced a serious threat .
I will try to find some photos from all 3 incidents
Perhaps they have found something. But if you look at the 1st corner, Massa braked as late as he dared and after Hamilton was slowing to corner, creating a huge amount of smoke in the process. A very brave move, could have gone very very wrong, but he pulled it off and made the place stick depsite having the outside line.tuj wrote:Massa's Start. Was is just a really good move on his part? Good clutch/throttle control? Or were we seeing something more; something new from Ferrari?
I believe its known that there are a number of adjustments now for the bite point on the clutch. I'm wondering if Ferrari has figured out a way to improve the starting ability of the car. After all, both the McLaren's got relatively good starts, particularly compared to the rest of the grid.
Guy just looked like a rocket; really makes me wonder if its something new from Ferrari or just good luck/good skill.
He was 4 sec up on Raikonen following the Finn's error at the beginning of that lap, he pitted with 3 seconds up as Raikkonen pushed hard. Kimis´ pitstop was 5secs vs. Alonsos´ 7 secs.vyselegend wrote: PS: Anybody knows what happened to Alonso on his out lap with supersofts? He was 4 sec up on Raikonen (following the Finn's error) while he pitted, and when Raikonen exited the pits at his turn the next lap he had a 2 sec gap! I know the Ferrari is faster, but come on! not 6 sec a lap... TV only showed Nakajima having a contact with Sutil, but something must have happen to Fernando.
