They'll have forgotten how to drive by the time the season starts. The team will have to put Post It notes on the car. "This pedal makes car go faster", "This pedal to stop" etc.

And I kinda want Seb to win the championship just to piss Ferrari off.

It would be nice to see them back at Hockenheim again. Even the neutered version. A wet hock equals awesome levels of clownshoes.

This was one of the first races that Brabham tried their pit stop and change tyres strategy. Piquet was heading for a win when he crashed out.

/The Brabham had a built in jack, which was neat. When the car pitted they rammed an air hose into the car. Half the air went to cool the turbo and half powered four pistons that lifted the car off the ground.

Interesting. I wonder when IC and prototypes went to standard onboard jacks.

They're elated they got under five seconds. In races now we've seen sub two seconds, so it looks like the jack system wasn't needed.
