Re: 2016 German Grand Prix Race Thread

Am I the only one enjoying this race? So many negative comments so far... Rosberg looks fighty. Don't think this is over, despite Lewis' purples. Expecting battles between Ferrari & RB and loving seeing Mclaren a bit closer to the pointy end. Also great to hear radio again. Glad they saw sense ther...

No fan of Alonso, but I do sympathise with his view. Cars, tyres, run off areas instead of grass, ugly aero - they're all irrelevant compared with the fuel limit. If they had unlimited fuel and unlimited flow they could drive the nuts off a car and do multi-stops for tyres when they turn to canvas....
