Should he go or should he stay.

Eddie Jordan has 'advised' that Toto Wolff should leave Merc while they are on top. What Jordan says usually can happen; He said the pressure on him is a lot with Wolff missing out on a lot outside the 'three spoke star'. Whether he signs for another year in an even higher position is unknown and it's said he doesn't get on with a woman boss there.

When I watch on F1 tv I switch over to the French commentary..such a relief!

Pile up from safety car unlikely at Sochi.

Quite a wide track there so with the safety car switching lights off sooner if there's been a problem then everyone should get away unless someone takes a shot in the dark and goes crazy trying to gain a place (Sainz and Giovia).
Mugello on second thoughts may not have been the best track for F1 race, quite narrow like Brands Hatch, only thing is it's longer than the BH full track.

As Brundle said the Hans device and cockpit padding in this case saved Gro from possible whiplash or worse.

Eddie Jordan is after something recently.. like he is playing chess.. who knows what he put his eyes on..

edit:

he is right radio calls are pretty interesting.. though bad language probably get through as well..

To add to this the severity of the impact is shown by the wheel SEPERATING from the tyre. I said the Hans and padding probably saved Gro from injury though in the case of Jules Bianchi it may have contributed to his death in his sliding car by preventing him from bending over forward enough and avoiding the bottom of the car removal jig he went under.

The news I've been waiting for in that the problem with Max's car in Mugello was down to both electrics and software coming together causing an issue.
The actual main PU and mgu-K or H have no problem and as well as these rectifications, final PU elements will be added to both cars for this weekend.
Tanabe's been a busy person!
