Looks like the HAM conspiracy theorists are finally coming completely unhinged now. Some of the comments out there make me shake my head. If Merc really didn't want him to win, there's a thousand things they could do that don't involve fire or crashed cars. Misadjust a wing or pump the tires over or under and he'd be off by seconds and no one would ever know. It's sad to see the rift widen now from Nationalism into Racism.

Michael Schumacher, seven retirements and a last place to Rosberg's three in '12. I don't recall any conspiracy.

I could, but at this point couldn't watch it until after the race. It's not a big deal I just wish TWC would be more consistent. I hate them enough as it is.

I called them to try and lower my bill and the guy spent more time (50 minute phone call!) trying to upgrade my service than trying to downgrade it. You know you're in trouble when they start with "I'd like to ask you a few questions about how you use your service". Gad. I wanna reach through the phone and grab some neck.

Word on Twitter is Lewis's chassis is a write off. A pic was posted of the new chassis being wheeled into pit lane.

Stangely, Magnussen is also getting a new chassis. Curious about that. I would not have expected that much damage from his shunt.

So, they both start from the pit lane. Lewis will have the position by the 2nd corner.

Here's a couple samples. It's just too depressing. It's going to be hard to put all this back in the box.


"Any team Lewis goes to (unless it's a back marker which won't happen) this will happen. At McLaren the same thing was happening with slower pits stops & crazy unreliability. The old elite who run F1 will not have him (& you know what I mean) breaking records & winning multiple championships. I cannot prove it but it is clear to see & can be refuted by whom ever but it stares us in the face!!"

"There is no doubt many noses were put out of joint when this black kid came in and looked like he was going to rewrite the record books. I think we Africans need to start building cars instead of shipping bananas then we can have our own 100% fair championships without any unfair bias."

The whole thing with his fans is asinine. Surprising their mums allow them out of the basement to use the family computer to post such nonsense.

As for conspiracy theories in general, the team may be German in ownership, but it is based in England, and I would bet money that the vast majority of the team from bottom to top are Brits. If anyone should worry about conspiracies, it would be Rosberg.

And Lewis does himself no favors by not distancing himself from all the nonsense. He needs to do a Shatner and tell his more rabid fans to get a life.

Kimi comments on his quali disaster. If someone has not immediately been sacked, I will be shocked.

What a massive gaff. Kimi is a pretty cool cucumber though.


"A mistake has been made. It's already been a difficult year, so I don't see the point to shout. The mistake is done. I've made mistakes in the past, I will make them in the future. People make mistakes, but there are things we have to change to improve. These are not easy times."
