    Was it though? In reality they gave him low fuel and a way higher engine mode, it's a confidence boosting lap and as no one else did a remotely comparable lap engine mode wise we have no idea how good a lap it really is.

    He's also apparently been told to stick with Max's setup as the team believes he's gotten miles away from where he should be trying different things to find lap time. Neither of these things are particularly positive.

    Pretty much anyone can get P1 in Fp1 if the team goes lets just do a actual full power qualifying lap.

    Oh. (A stark reminder why not to read into FP times) I switched off my phone once the flag was waved. Thought he had suddenly found pace. Naive boy

    Yeah, it felt very much to most that they were giving him a bit of a glory run confidence boost, though I don't know how much confidence you can gain when you know you've been given higher engine modes just to look less slow. We'll see but I think qualifying will not be far off normal. Though if he's gone the wrong way on setup for well months and if the team force him to stick with Max's maybe that will bring some of his pace back.

    Did he try and blame it on someone else, as per his normal protocol?

    Was it not clear from the video, the Armco cut him up and then braked to commit insurance fraud.

    Grosjeans been stealing a living in F1 for years, he's had 8 years at it which is way more than many others have been given and done little but moan in most of them. Time for someone else to get a go in that seat next season.

    Umm.... Ok.... Before complying with the Judges orders, moving assets away from a company. Could be interesting.

    I just realised Silverstone is actually live on channel 4.. Thing is, so is the Wimbledon Women's final at 1pm and I want to see both. I'm going to be flicking rapidly between both channels.
