I think the point was that he might not have been able to get out at all and if the car was on fire or he was in a bad way thats not a good thing I'd say.

The important thing is proper consideration of risk. Would the halo or something like it reduce the risk of injury in some scenarios without increasing it in others?

 

An interesting comparison of driver maturity is to look at what Vettel and Hamilton have said about it (before today's race).

I can see a follow up letter from the drivers:

 

"This is exactly what we were talking about, you feckless bunch of lobotomised bunglecünts."

It will be weird weather and it will turn out to really turn things on its head instead this time. 

 

Or maybe a complete and utter flop again.

Knowing JB's luck Vandoorne will make his debut in Alonso's car, and beat him - maybe even finish the race  ;)

The FIA statement read:

 

“Following an examination undertaken this morning at the Bahrain International Circuit Medical Centre, it has been decided that McLaren Honda F1 Team driver Fernando Alonso should not take part in this weekend’s Bahrain Grand Prix. Two sets of chest CT scans were compared and it was decided that there was insufficient resolution of the signs to allow him to compete on safety grounds.

 

A repeat chest scan has been requested before the Chinese Grand Prix and the results will be considered before allowing him to race there.”

 

Hope it's not a repeat of last seasons mysterious winter-testing crash at the Circuit de Catalunya.

What a start to a race, almost as much damage as BTCC.

Knowing JB's luck Vandoorne will make his debut in Alonso's car, and beat him - maybe even finish the race  ;)

Told ya! :(

Grosjean is doing well in the Ferrari Lite☺

Nice guy that Jenson is, I'm a bit disappointed he didn't make reference to the excellent finish that "super sub" had in his post race interview, especially as he's part of his management team.

C4F1 says it got 2.3M average and 3.2M peak for the Bahrain GP - with Sky at average 605,000 viewers. 

 

These figures contradict the powers that be believe pay TV is the way forward, this definitely says otherwise.

The Alonso put down of Herbert was cringeworthy.  I wanted to crawl under a rock for Herbert.  How humiliating.

Conversely, I don't think it did Alonso any favours either.

I think it depends how you look on it.  I think he has every right to reply and he said nothing that wasn't factual.

 

He didn't call him a bad name and it could be argued he just stated a point in order to make a point.

 

I don't like Alonso.  Never have done, but I think he had every right to do it.

I think it was more the way he said it than what he actually said, if he'd stopped to have a chat and made his point in conversation, I'd have a lot more respect for him.

I almost said "It might have been better had he not said it as he walked away".

This supposed domination of 'average' Niko Rosberg isn't going to plan is it? :P

 

Early days.

 

I'm just fecked off that Ferrari have contrived to ruin the start to a potentially competitive season. How perfectly Italian of them...  :ffs:

Highlight of the race for me was at the end of the CH4 programme they cut to Lee for her thoughts and behind her was a great shot of Vettel's PA, Britta's ass ☺

I listen to the race on 5 live, sounded like quite a good race for once, will watch the highlights later.

It was actually a very good and eventful race concluded with "handbags" before the podium☺
