Fred cleared to race....sort of.
...So I guess if he does not puncture a lung after FP1, he can then race, or will the FIA require additional checks?...
If Alonso's performance in FP1 shows him to be a threat to the Euro power bloc then he will require further medical tests...for his well-being of course. :)

^ Yes, apparently the gearbox was damaged in Bahrain, but the rule is stupid (naturally). Fair enough to have a limited number of gearboxes for the year, but they have to use the same one in 6 consecutive races or take a 5 place grid penalty.

A British university has published a 47, yes 47!, page scholarly research paper made by pHD's using statistical analysis to determine just who the best driver ever was in F1, after controlling for how good the team was.

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/274080402_Formula_for_success_Multilevel_modelling_of_Formula_One_Driver_and_Constructor_performance_1950-2014

The driver ranking are at page 40.

Their Top10:

Fangio, Prost, Schumacher, Clark, Senna, Alonso, Piquet, Stewart, Fittipaldi, Vettel.

So that settles the argument I'm sure :rolleyes: Prost was better than Senna.

Yeah it's a dumb rule IMO. But, between this and a rainy qualy session we could see an interesting race on Sunday. So I'll take it.

Apparently, Lewis' reply was to tweet this pic:

That was from a British university and there's no Mansell or Hamilton on there? Those dudes better pack their bags before the torches and pitchforks start marching down their street.
