Eddy Jordan asked what we both thought that rossberg missing the chicane was a set up to pay Hamilton back.

Full timing for five years and loving it!
Mmmmmmm, I think he was under pressure because that was the second time he did that.


But you never know?

I think it was a pay-back! Team orders as a punishment for cheating and knock in Ham' out of the last race. I think he did it the first time to add a bit of 'authenticity' to what he was going to do later?

Good race overall though - I enjoyed the dicing further down the field.

Funny how Rosberg got the 'bird' from the Italian crowd on the podium. Don't think they were impressed with his cheating in the last race.

He got worse treatment last time out.

There are some big names and big teams knocking hell out of each other further down, it's brilliant.

Did you see the look on Toto Woolf's face when Rosberg went straight on at the chicane? It's not often that you see a team manager smiling at a drivers mistake?

"Giving" back 7 points is not much considering he took a possible 25 away from Hamilton in the last race especially at this stage in the season where, unless Rosberg drops out of at least one race - not likely if you look at the history of failure between the two cars! - it means that Hamilton needs to win every race.

Don't forget that odd rule for this year with double points in the last race

I don't care which of them wins or doesn't, it would be great to see Riciardo come from behind and beat the both of them :D

I bet the double points rule was to keep sponsors happy, once the title was decided should think viewing figures dropped big time for tv.
