F1: Coulthard attacks tyre rules. David Coulthard says rules penalising tyre changes have made Formula One more dangerous. [BBC News | News Front Page | UK Edition]
The hypocrisy in this issue is really overwhelming. It has improve overtaking? Maybe, but it has sent it back where no one can see it. It has decrease security (look at Kimi's incident yesterday) and it has fuzzy up the rules (you change a tyre when it is dangerous, which means you take a risk if it is deem not dangerous by the officials). The reality is that most people like this rules for only one reason. They have eliminated Ferrari from the competition (which they dominated), the rules are really a triumph of politics over technique and racing. If you can't beat them, change the game...

I saw only the last few laps of the race as I had to take my nephew and my brother in law to the airport. Probably this race will make the difference and Alonso will become champions. McLaren proves that they still do not fully comprehend that every point counts. Now Alonso has increased his lead a lot. Alonso can now finish second to Kimi's first and still win, furthermore, Trulli is tied with Kimi. Schumy is nowhere to be found, as we find a surprisingly feisty Barrichello in the podium. The fact that he is beating Schumy reinforces the idea that the later is done for. He lost motivation most likely.
