Weather conspiring against Rosberg so that Hamilton leads the race from the beginning.

Or maybe Mercedes hired out HAARP for $500 mill.

Just let the cars start in the rain, let's get ready for 10 laps behind the safety car. Fans, pundits and drivers all saying its dry but they won't call the safety car in.

Of course it's a safety car start. Remember, NOTHING at all is more important than safety. Nothing. Even if it means no racing.

Webber and DC are much better to watch than Hill and Herbert. Webber was getting soaked.

Not in the rain. The longer he gets to race in the wet the bigger the gap to Rosberg.

I think the channel 4 pre race coverage is way better than sky. The coverage after the race on channel 4 is also better IMO.

Yeah I agree with you. I watch sky because I have too, when C4 is on that's the channel for me. Really enjoy listening to DC and Webber.

A real shame that Sky is taking over in 2019. I think their coverage is no better than Channel 4 overall which I think is pretty poor considering how much they make you pay!

It's only rubbish if it stays out too long, I perfectly understand the safety aspect for the start itself if the conditions are bad, who wants to see cars crashing?
