For those not up to date - every team racing was using a type of Michelin tyre that was found to have a serious flaw, and in fact fail at high speeds due to an unpredicted weight of each car. This means all teams have backed out of the race, bar Minardi, Jordan and Ferrari, all driving on Bridgestones.
The FIA could have resolved the situation by adding a chicane to the longer straight of the track, but refused due to currently unknown reasons. All teams left after the first formation lap, and the three teams began the race. The race has also now been declared useless - no points will come of it. The angry fans have left, after throwing bottles on the track to endanger the innocent lives of the racing drivers (pricks).
As I write this, Rubens Barichello and Michael Schumacher almost collided as Michael left the pit; which is quite amusing considering there are currently 6 cars on the track.
This is one, big mess of a race, and America certainly isn't impressed with the FIA or F1 as a whole. My view is that this is an appalling display of disorganisation for a billion-pound sport, and the fans have every right to be pissed off considering the amounts some must have paid for tickets.
"Lunacy of the highest order" as the commentator has just said.
14 laps to go now, what are your thoughts? Who is at fault and who should be held responsible?
