Probably nothing as they don't own the rights to it.

There is a similar video on YouTube of the Senna accident, taken from the hairpin just after where the crash was, looking back down the track. It doesn't show the impact though, as the person filming obviously didn't expect it to happen, but it shows some out laps, the first lap, the safety car lap after the crash on the start grid, and the aftermath of Senna's crash. Again, the FIA can't do anything about it as they don't own the rights to it.


I suspect the back of the ticket says that Bernie owns the rights to any footage shot at the event.


Good point actually, I think it does! :oops:

I really hope he doesn't get screwed by bad luck in the last race. Losing it because of a retirement in the one race with double points would feel a little like robbery.

I have a nasty feeling that is exactly what will happen.

If Hamilton just concentrates on getting more points than Rosberg in Brazil, then hopefully he'll have enough to go to Abu Dhabi, and just let Rosberg run his own race, and effectively nurse the car home in a good enough position to take the title.

Not kidding, with his ability, he should really have been a triple world champion by now. It was only the dominence of Adrian Newey's design team in combination with someone who could drive their car, that's made the last few years, Red Bull then everybody else scrapping over the leftovers.

Playing devil's advocate, you could just as well say that it's only down to Mercedes engine design and Rosberg being not a top tier driver that he's (potentially) winning this one.

Alonso should have about 5 based on his ability, too, esp given how far beyond the capabilities of the car he has gone with Ferrari

True enough.

I can only really base my opinions on Alonso, against Hamilton, on the season they were in the same equipment. Alonso was current world champion, and Hamilton was in his first season in an F1 car. Being honest, Alonso "should" have wiped the floor with him, but it was more like the way Daniel Ricciardo is showing Sebastian Vettel up this year.

Bit annoyed the Beeb aren't showing Brazil live, it's one of my favourites. At least it's not on too late.

Thankfully, Sky Sports F1 is still part of the HD package, the only annoyance is my shift pattern doesn't often take into account that I like to watch F1.

I don't so much mind the highlights thing any more, I'm just bothered in this case because Brazil is one of my top three races.

Which is odd because by going under the administrator prevents them getting the £30m prize money at the end of the season, which would have been quite useful for paying off the creditors, which should be a key consideration for the administrators...

What outcome are we expecting this weekend?

I'm expecting Rosberg on pole, and Hamilton's engineer to spend half the race inventing new reasons why he should hang back from Rosberg and focus on maintaining a gap back to third, as Hamilton gives everyone heart failure by crawling all over the back of Rosberg's car, eventually giving up the charge after the second pit stops and cruising to the title in second, possibly with some minor issue being massively overplayed by the commentators in an attempt to manufacture a breathless finish.
