One more thought about modern F1

It is Friday morning in Barcelona and modern F1 is going to work in preparation for the Spanish Grand Prix. In the paddock there is one team packing up and going home and two drivers wandering around looking for something to do. A little further down the paddock Mark Webber is sitting out the day because he cannot afford to go out and get a penalty of 10 places on the grid.

And three of the top runners in the World Championship all do just one installation lap in order to save their engines.
