    Ferrari and McLaren have used it as well this year I believe. Got to be teams with money to just have a shit ton of extra engines.

    When McLaren/Honda did it, I think Alonso ended up with a 105 grid spot penalty. The reason it worked for this year was they made it so that your grid penalties don't carry over to the next races. Last year if you had done it you would have still started on the last row even if you qualified on pole for the next 4-5 races with how big his penalty was.

    Luckily for the championship Hamilton did stockpile.

    How boring would it be if Hamilton had to win all 5 remaining t races AND start from last place at one.

    Now he only has to win all 5 :wtc:

    Saying Nico would be an undeserving champion is laughable. If Lewis could actually put up a good start and outqualify his teammate on a regular basis, meaning more than 1/2 the time (Lewis - 8 to Nico 7), Nico wouldn't be leading the championship. That start by Lewis was laughably bad, yet again.

    Yeah, because sitting on pole doesn't represent an advantage in F1. Especially into turn 1. Come on now.

    TIJL: Qualifying position means nothing; especially when you suck at starts.

    i never said rosberg wouldn't deserve a championship. if you have the points you deserve it.

    i don't think he'd have a points lead if it wasn't for lewis' reliability issues though.

    pole position might give you a greater probability of winning, but if you don't that doesn't mean anything. especially if you set your car up to qualify rather than setting it up for race distance.
