With its inaugural run, we predicted the Korean Grand Prix would be unpredictable. We just did not know how unpredictable! Now that Formula 1 has added another memorable race to the 2010 books, itâ€™s time to catch our breath, dry off, assess the damage, run the championship numbers again â€“ and get set for Brazil.
Overall, what did you think of the new Korean circuit?
Fernando Alonso scores another win and now tops the World Driversâ€™ Championship standings. Jenson Button faded to the middle of the pack and out of the running for this yearâ€™s title. Going into Brazil, do you give the overall championship advantage to Alonso? Or is it still a toss-up among the top four?
What about Red Bullâ€™s disastrous day? And their chances in Brazil and Abu Dhabi?
After the race, Force Indiaâ€™s Adrian Sutil was penalized five grid places for the Brazilian Grand Prix â€“ and fined $10,000 after admitting that he knew he had brake problems prior to hitting Kamui Kobayashi. Toro Rossoâ€™s Sebastien Buemi will also lose five grid spots in Brazil due to his collision with Timo Glock. Were these penalties fair? In light of all of the mishaps yesterday should others have also been penalized?
Did Vitaly Petrov not only crash out of the race but also perhaps out of his seat at Renault for next year? What are your predictions for his future in Formula 1?
As we look toward Interlagos, weâ€™ll salute the Brazilian drivers over the next two weeks. This week itâ€™s Rubens Barrichello. What are your thoughts about his career? His future in Formula 1? His leadership of the Grand Prix Driversâ€™ Association?
