Those tyres are totally bald. Thus - Illegal - according to the clarification that Ferrari got after they complained about the michelin tyres. :D

If any results are removed due to tyres being bald then it's high time for F1 as a sport to be cancelled, until Max Mosely dies... Then maybe go back and start again...

Ferrari protested the michelin tyres in 2003 I think..that was the rule clarification.

There has to be visible grooves. Otherwise it's just a full slick. :D

Alonso - another superb drive from the front. Is pole now going to guarantee a win now?
Trulli - great to see toyota getting some return.
Heidfeld - Im just thrilled to see him do well after all the back-of-the-grid drives he's had to put up with.

What a joke of a race. Yet another procession. Nobody anywhere near close enough to overtake. Even when the car in front has problems it is difficult to overtake and takes a mistake from the car in front to allow overtaking.

The regs need to be changed NOW as there is less overtaking than last year.

Congrats DC top British points scorer of all time

When is Jim Rosenthal on about. A big thumbs up for the regulations for all the action it gave us :rolleyes: sums up what he said really.

If you look at the lap chart it clearly shows where the pit stops were.

They really need to stop refueling. Also the pit lane speed limits have made them more strategic as it now takes at least 20 seconds from in to out
