I was up that early - I'd been up 3-4 hours already, trying to get the dam cats off my car - and I don't mean the 4 legged variety!
For anyone who watched the GP, I think we'd all agree that Vettel has been replaced, as the official "spoiled brat" that everyone loves to hate, and Nico Rosberg is his replacement.
What Nico pulled on lap two was inexcusable, and even normally reserved Toto said "Today, the unthinkable happened, and it cannot, and WILL NOT be allowed to happen again."
I watched Nico win at Monaco last year, and thought "what a great kid, and what talent and potential he has." But I was booing from my living room yesterday, with the rest of the spectators when he accepted his 2nd place trophy. What could/should have been an easy 1/2 day for Mercedes turned into a #2 for Nico and a DNF for Lewis due to Nico's blind and misguided ambition. He seems to have developed the attitude "win at ALL costs, and regardless of the consequences".
I'd really like to see Toto take him out of the next race as penance. Mercedes is so far ahead in the Constructor's Championship that they could afford the loss in points, and this kid plainly needs to be taken down a peg or two.

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.
