Red Bull Racing did post-Russia what everyone imagined they would do towards the end of the 2016 Formula 1 Season. They gave wings to Max Verstappen's Formula 1 career while clipping Daniil Kvyat's. The former World Champion team's decision evoked applause from most quarters and shock from a few. Would they have taken a similar decision had Kvyat rammed into a 'less important' driver? What if Verstappen would've committed a similar error?
While we hint of 'favouritism' in Formula 1 (well, it's human nature!), we also point out Bernie Ecclestone and Mercedes' favouritism towards Lewis Hamilton.
We reveal Nico Rosberg's ONLY issue in the recently concluded Russian Grand Prix and how Fernando Alonso is now playing 'sales agent' for the 2016 Spanish Grand Prix organisers.
Lastly, we tell you how the 'right to engine' clause will still unsettle the new regulations Formula 1 announced for 2017-2020.
