That race was total chaos. Loved it!

BTW, Pastor Maldonado got 3 penalties in the same race, including one for speeding in the pitlane while serving one of the other penalties.

I keep hearing that F1 wants to ban driver coaching - and yet I keep hearing it, race after race. I guess they mean info about car settings only and I really don't see the point. The clutch settings, for instance - they practice standing starts during all the practice runs. The roll out from the garage to the grid doesn't really get them any new info that they didn't have prior.

That was one hell of a race. If only we got to see that on an ongoing basis.

To be the "premier" racing series in the world, they try to ban a lot of crap that doesn't matter. F1 would do better to let the guys race and concentrate on going to good venues with large crowds (and catering to their fanbase), and less on number of engines used, or type of engine, or what's being said over the radio between a driver and his engineer.
