I'll be interested to see if he monumentally falls off the cliff at the end.
At this circuit they were talking that they will do just that

Jenson reckons there is no way Rosberg or Massas tyres will last
If there's a SC after everyone's stopped then Rosberg will be beyond screwed.

To be fair, I don't think, in this particular case, it's the circuit's fault for the crap race.

Looks like Hamilton has a good chance of another Grand Chelem.

Are they allowed to give them target lap times? I thought that was one of the things that was banned... also telling Rosberg to pick up the pace?

Because he'll be on massively old tyres whereas everyone else will be on much newer ones and he will have lost the gap his strategy created.

I presume you mean if he's ahead of all those who have stopped? Otherwise, it could be an opportunity for him to change tyres and still do some catching up under the SC? It can work either way.

Bets on Lewis having a smoke and a pint at his stop?

So even after that Pitstop he is still 30 seconds ahead of Rosberg, so he can pit again and STILL be ahead of Rosberg

I'm not being funny, "respect the beeps" sounds like just the sort of message that was meant to have been banned...

Vettel getting the instruction on the fuel consumption, was that not allowed?
