    Been flat out since coming back from Melbourne. Was a great weekend, so glad my family got to go together.
    Sun was the only bad thing for us, we were in the Schumacher stand (between turns 15 & 16) which faces NW. Had the sun on us all day, Saturday was really, really hot. Spent a lot of time in the shade behind the stand.

    One thing I noticed with the Honda's, was more pronounced in the Red Bulls, but happened with the Toro Rosso's too. Going into the final turn the drivers (all drivers) back off slightly, when the Red Bulls did that the engine would make a weird crunching type noise. Imagine gears crunching type noise. Very weird.
    I survived the patio flooding catastrophe of 2012.

    So this was enough to disrupt the balance on Ham's car;

    According to missed apex podcast the floor was damaged before the race, Most likely left damaged due to either Parc germs rules or Mercedes didnít bring a same spec floor.

    Or it's just a nice excuse to preserve Hamiltons mental state that he got thoroughly trounced by his team mate.

    Teams always find convenient excuses as to why their #1 gets flogged from time to time.. Vettel etc have all had it in the past "oh turns out they were missing 10 cylinders but we only noticed at the end of the race"

    I also thought it funny how there's a massive push to stop plastic entering the ocean but end of the race a massive stream of green and yellow strips gets pumped out.

    I thought that was disgraceful.

    It was paper, but either way....

    It's the same as fireworks. Everyone's always pro-environment, unless it's fireworks, then it's OK to pump metals and chemicals into the air/water because it looks pretty.
