The aborted qualifying attempt in Suzuka this weekend allowed plenty of opportunities for drivers to mess around a little bit, and break free of their usual concentration. That, in turn, allowed for plenty of antics that can only be rewarded with points on the rankings, and that is why the table is bursting this week. We had better just get on with it.
