Well that was a bit of a shocker - a race on a new track that's actually worth watching.

Wonder what the second MS incident is, the altercation with Fisi?

Yup.

Seems like Tilke has got the Designatrack V2 software n ow - which comes out with something interesting...

As for the incidents - Driving into Webber, and pushing Fisichella off the track when being lapped.

As always - put M.Schumacher under pressure - and he cracks...

Webber was lapped when passing MS. How come when overtaking you are only allowed to make one move yet if you are following like Webber was you can go to the inside, then the outdside then back to the inside again?

MS didn't force Fisi off track. Fisi just drove off the track.

Overtaking was good when the tyres were cold but after then it was back to normal.

Wow, that was an interesting race, excellent stuff.

About the Webber/Schumi incident, wasn't Webber a lap down on Schumi at that time?

Yup. But you are allowed to unlap yourself - Schumacher was around a second a lap slower than Webber at that point so was causing Webber to lose out. It's only holding up the leaders that you can be black flagged for *stupid rule that one...*

It was a legitimate move.

Michael shut the door says Webber

A series of so far unexplained right rear tyre failures put pay to the efforts of Mark Webber and his BMW Williams teammate, Nick Heidfeld, in Sunday’s inaugural Turkish Grand Prix in Istanbul after both drivers were forced to retire after suffering two such failures each.

Twenty-eight year old Webber had lost two positions to Red Bull Racing duo David Coulthard and Christian Klien at the start after Sauber’s Felipe Massa almost slid into the back of Heidfeld as they raced into the first corner, and forcing Webber to take avoiding action. However, the Australian quickly redressed the balance, passing Coulthard at turn 12 on lap three before doing likewise to Klien in the same spot a lap later to re-emerge in his original grid position of seventh.

Mark moved up another place when Heidfeld’s Williams FW27 suffered a right rear failure and he had to pit for a replacement. Fortunately it happened close to the pit lane entry but when Webber suffered the same fate two laps later, he had to complete a whole lap before making it back to the pits. These premature pit stops left the Williams pair way down the order with Heidfeld 16th and Webber 20th.

Matters then went from bad to worse on lap 14 as Webber began to catch Michael Schumacher at a rapid rate of knots. The world champion moved across and squeezed Webber into the braking area to turn three but Webber refused to be intimidated by the Ferrari driver and the two made contact at the apex and both had to pit for replacement parts. Webber returned to the race, albeit only briefly as a second tyre failure a few laps later spelt the end of his eventful Turkish Grand Prix. He was joined shortly afterwards by Heidfeld after he suffered his second tyre failure.

“Despite what happened, I really liked the track and I felt I got on top of it well,” Mark said. “It’s a great, new F1 venue and full marks to the organisers. I can’t comment on the tyre problems which affected our team because they are still being investigated but the incident with Michael happened when I caught him after my first stop. I had been following and closing on him for three or four laps as he was very slow. I was a lap down but I had to get on my own afternoon and I was losing a lot of time behind him. Generally when you come up to un-lap yourself against someone slower, they don’t normally weave around in the braking area as Michael seemed to. I got alongside him on the brakes into turn 12 but when I got closer to the apex, I had to try and pull back out of the move as Michael was clearly shutting the door on me but it was too late.”
