Actually, I was at the last Dutch GP back in 1985. Prost won, Lauda got second place. Senna third.
As a super young kid visiting, I still fondly remember the magic, standing in the dunes with 25 Guilders tickets. The beginning of my love affair with F1

And I did some Zandvoort tracktime last year with a race prepped e92. Looked to me that overtaking is a challenge on this track. Maybe the Tarzan Turn (end of straight).
All my pleasure my friend !

That sounds like fun !

I agree with this all, but Iíll make a public declaration to never be blinded my my love of mclaren and will always call it like it is. I truly wish for them to ascend the ranks, but purely on talent and skill and nothing else.

Do you think Karen Horner calling the race director 30 seconds after the incident isn't an attempt to influence the outcome? I suggest you go back and listen to the tape after the collision.

Further, RBR, clearly brought the sport into disrepute with their verbal foolishness and slander of Sir Lewis over the ensuing weeks. I never though I'd say it but I wish Max Mosely had been in charge...they would have been sanctioned for this BS. They have further exposed themselves as the mountebanks they are.

I'd be careful what you wish for friend as Moseley could well have banned and disciplined Hamilton for that brainless move on Max ''knowing'' that was the racing line that Max would take.

Negative my friend .

• Calling is not prohibited .
• Wolff walked over to the marshals-"Race Officials" in person .
• Wolff tried to buy the marshals.
• The result ?
• The 10 sec. penalty is a joke from what HAM did there with MAX at Silverstone .

Why you think the FIA came up now with a new regulation ?
From now on It's forbitten to meet and to speak the marshals in person during the race ..

Wolff was 100% wrong my friend !
Personally influencing of a race incident is now forbidden by the FIA .
At that moment that's exactly what Woff did !
The new FIA regulation came for what Wolff did , behind the curtains !

EDIT : The FIA has to look at the Merc's flexible front wing and the Merc's new hidden cooling system to provide their PU with more ponies !

Then he would have had to DQ Max for about 10 races since he started as well as sanctioned him a few times this year and last for his Bump-Passes. Passes where he bounces off a car to complete his pass. And he still moves in the braking zone.

Close observation of Mosely during his time as head of F1. Remember. Back then a protest of that nature may result in an additional penalty. Especially with the crazy pronouncements made after the event.

They threw their toys out the pram in a spectacular fashion.
