Remember Traction Control?

Weather forecasts for this week end's Japanese GP do not call for rain, a minor miracle if correct. Remember last year's Kubica vs Massa last lap duel in the middle of a monsoon? It's tempting to ascribe that solely to electronics but Alonso was caught out as indeed were many others that day.

Still, no question it was a huge performance advantage and one nobody really misses....OK, maybe Massa at Silverstone after his fourth spin.

Let's go back to Professor Piola for a short history lesson and then, after the jump, you will find the classic Kubica-Massa battle from 2007...

  1. Piola is a fucking master. i could listen to him all day.

  2. It's a shame that Massa and Kubica got penalized for gaining an advantage by leaving the track...oh wait, neither of their last names is Hamilton...here we go again...
