Is there no engine development allowed over the course of the season?

As far as I know it's software only, with exceptions for safety reasons

I guess they're no longer using a common ECU?

WOW! I haven't kept up with the regs, sounds like Mercedes scored quite the coup if no one will be able to copy their split turbo design.

They are, but what you program with the given APIs is up to you.

Personally I thought Jules Bianchi put in the best drive yesterday, especially considering his car. It was a pretty decent race though with some really good moments. I loved when Hamilton said he didn't care about Ricciardo, he wanted to know where Rosberg was then a couple laps later he's got Ricciardo breathing down his neck.

I think the Bianchi/Marussia bandwagon is overblown. Without so many retirements he would have been where the Marussias always are, in the back. The only faster car he really beat was Grosjean. He wouldn't have been anywhere near Magnussen and Raikkonen without a) the safety cars and b) Raikkonen's idiotic move that made him and Kevin lose an eternity of time.

Kudos to him and Marussia for making the most of it (and for that pass on Kobayashi!!!)... but to sudenly call this a masterpiece... I'm not sure.


===

Hamilton's attitude was awful and childish. Completely hated him after qualy and after the race.

===

Marussia's points are a tragedy for... Sauber... Now down to 10th place in the constructors championship, the Swiss team needs another lottery race to climb back. The car was semi-decent in Monaco, with Esteban Gutiérrez being able to keep a decent gap between his car and Raikkonen's before he made a very dumb mistake clipping the barrier at Rascasse.... but where else do teams run the Monaco spec? Nowhere, that is. Only Hungary is aero-heavy, but nowhere near as much as Monaco. They are at a crisis.
