Mario Andretti on the Vettel penalty:

I think the function of the stewards is to penalize flagrantly unsafe moves not honest mistakes as result of hard racing. What happened at #CanadaGp is not acceptable at this level of our great sport. @F1

Should F1 acknowledge the New Zealand tragedy this weekend?

I don't know if black armbands worn by the drivers or something else might be appropriate. It would seem extremely tone deaf if there was a full blown party at the Australian F1 race considering the tragedy in New Zealand today.

Agree with your assessment of top four.

However, top 4 is easy. Top 3 is hard; thus the request for top 3 :)

Alonso
Kimi
Vettel

Re: Schumy's sportsmanship moments

In his second career a year or two back, one of the pitstop crew members didn't put on a wheel correctly and it came off Schumacher's car during the race. I remember Schumi saying he felt bad for the crew member and would give him a hug when he saw him.

Thought that was pretty classy.
