So a few days have passed since the Belgian GP and basically it's been all about that second lap racing incident between Rosberg and Hamilton.
Incredibly, instead of just chalking it up to "racing happens" Mercedes, first commissioned a public opinion poll on Facebook, then turned to the PR department to script a contrite apology from Rosberg and Hamilton.
Seriously? Everything that's wrong with modern F1 right there.
To add to the comedy, the team said it had "disciplined" Rosberg. How do you discipline the guy who's leading the championship? Will Mercedes force him to sleep on a couch? Will they take away his hair gel?
Hopefully neither Hamilton nor Rosberg were sincere and racing will resume, but man, it's hard to cheer for any of them, Lewis, Nico or Mercedes.
There is someone to really get behind in the final part of the season however... and he's smiling!
It's not very likely but not impossible either and, if Ricciardo and Red Bull were to pull it off, it would make the 2014 season the opposite of blah.
