drivers are never going to.know how to fix issues if they don't know what is wrong in the first place. The only reason the pits know is because they have a mass team monitoring data in the background. Is it that hard to allow technical advice but not.driving advice. This is a team sport afterall.

Re: Coulthard's idea....

Some would argue the 5 place grid penalty hurts less the further down the grid you are. I think the points system should be changes so that every starting place on the grid gets points. Makes it more painful for any team to have a gearbox issue. But maybe instead of one driver getting a grid penalty...

Re: Is anyone expecting a surprise this season?

I think Mercedes will slip backwards.

I think their development will give them issues and the tyres won't allow them to compensate.

So we will only get them dominate at a selection of tracks

I could be wrong but weren't strategies more varied then. Ie if you got held up you could adjust your fuel strategy.

Lap nico first is a right, keeping lewis out till his chances were over is wrong.
