FI DRIVER PENALTIESStewards have the power to impose various penalties on a driver if he commits an offence during a race. Offences may include jumping the start, causing an avoidable accident, unfairly blocking another driver, impeding another driver when being lapped, speeding in the pit lane etc.The two most common types are the drive-through penalty and the ten-second time penalty. In the case of the former, the driver must enter the pits, drive through the pit lane at the pit-lane speed limit and rejoin the race without stopping. Depending on the length of the pit lane this can cost a driver a significant amount of time.More severe is the ten-second time penalty (also commonly known as a stop-go penalty) where the driver must not only enter the pits, but must also stop for ten seconds at his pit before rejoining the race. During this time the driver’s team are not permitted to work on the car.In extreme cases the stewards may choose to enforce a third type of penalty whereby they can force a driver to drop ten grid positions at the next Grand Prix. So even if the driver in question goes on to qualify in pole position, he will in fact start that race from 11th place.In the case of the drive-through penalty and the ten-second time penalty, a driver has three laps, from the time his team is notified, to enter the pits (failure to do so may result in a black flag and the driver being excluded from the race).The only exception is when the penalty is awarded during the final five laps of the race. In this case the driver may continue and complete the race. However, 25 seconds will be added to his total race time, which may drop him considerably in the final race standings.

Thanks for starting the thread. Iam looking forward to see schumy winning and I hate the following cricket gets in India despite the fact that an Indian driver is fighting harder in an inferior car than the men in blue who shamelessly lost to pakis.

Monaco - Session -1 - Saturday

The session started well with some of the better known cars performing marginally better than the minardis and jordans,. However I have to say that the jordans havent adapted them selves to the nature of the circuit.

When Schumacher came on the track it was obvious that he would not finish in the top places because his car was twitching all along the track.

Barichello did marginally better than his team mate, probably the problem with Ferrari is that they are using Bridgestones and these tyres are not suited for the new rules.

However Webber's was a good round and so was Alonso's but Kimi decimated their times and probably declared that McLaren is back this year.

Kimi is the only person whos in the 1:13's the rest of the pack are way back .
Ralf tried way too hard and found him self splattered on the track. So much for trying too hard.
My pick is that Alonso still may have a chance to win the race.

By the way or dude is doing pretty well in a comatose team. And well lets just fig the men in blue becoz they are a bunch of chimps always drinking cola

Schumi..... yu need to switch to michelen tyres take my advice and ask Ross Brawn to talk to Michelen guys!!!

And by the way thanks for appreciating this thread.

Location Nürburg, Germany (European GP) Date 29 May 2005 Lap distance 5.148 m Laps 60 Race Distance 308.863 km Track Record 1:29.468 M. Schumacher (Ferrari), 2004 Built amid the remains of the old Ring in the wooded Eifel Mountains south of Cologne, the old track was regarded as the most challenging, even dangerous track in the world until it was taken off the calendar in 1976 following Austrian Niki Lauda's near-fatal crash. The new, shorter track opened again in 1982 and Formula One returned for the 1984 and 1985 seasons.The modern circuit has a mix of high and low-speed corners with limited overtaking possibilities, putting a premium on qualifying and fast pit stops. In 2002 the Mercedes Arena was added and it extended the circuit by almost half a kilometre.Recent WinnersYear Driver Team 2004 M Schumacher Ferrari 2003 R Schumacher Williams 2002 Barrichello Ferrari 2001 M Schumacher Ferrari 2000 M Schumacher Ferrari 1999 Herbert Stewart 1998 Hakkinen McLaren 1997 Villeneuve Williams 1996 Villeneuve Williams Any guesses who may win???

just have to say OMG!!!well what an amazing race!! have to say that i hald to the couch the whole evening till the race was over!! And true to the fact the new rules are really driving the teams to the extreme!! Alonso's havin some piece of luck this year !! But too bad for Kimi who really deserved to win!!i guess so he should have just tried cruising his way around to the finish rather than pushing the suspension to its limits during the penultimate lap.better luck next time Kimi.. may the gods smile on you!!
