Dear Y&F friends, I would like to take the chance to reply to the questions that many of you have posed in the days following the race. Firstly, to clear up Schumacher's notorious unrecognised qualifying lap. The reason Michael had to make a pit stop that lasted a few tenths longer than Alonso's was down to the new regulations. These state that the driver has to take on board the fuel that he has used up in the final qualifying session and that he has to complete all the laps in a time that should not exceed 110% of his fastest lap time. Unfortunately, Michael ran one such lap during qualifying, meaning that the fuel could not be "given back" by the FIA technicians. Second, the concerns expressed by some teams over the legality of Ferrari's rear wing were proved to be groundless. The FIA certified that it met all regulations during a check carried out at the track. Lastly, in response to "mondello" who asked where the mythical photo of Gilles seen in my first post was taken, the answer is the GP of Germany in 1979 and the circuit was Hockenheim. So, now I have to say goodbye and get back to my work in editorial. Here at Maranello things are very hectic ahead of the GP of Malaysia. Don't worry; I will be back before the weekend. In the meantime, continue posting!
