    导出博客文章In the aftermath of the British Grand Prix the FIA stewards issued Nico Rosberg
    with a ten-second time penalty for violating the new rules regarding radio
    communications between the driver and the pit wall.The British GP stewards
    determined that the team gave some instructions to the driver that were
    specifically permitted under Technical Directive 014-16. However, the Stewards
    determined that the team then went further and gave instructions to the driver
    that were not permitted under the Technical Directive, and were in Breach of
    Art. 27.1 of the Sporting Regulations, that the driver must drive the car alone
    and unaided.In laymans terms, what that means is that Mercedes were fine to tell
    their driver to enter default modes, as that is permitted under the 2016 radio
    regs. Where they got into trouble was in telling Rosberg to avoid seventh gear,
    which earned the team their time penalty.The penalty promoted Max Verstappen to
    second place, and means that the Mercedes drivers are split by a single point
    going into the next race in Budapest. But that is the smallest of the likely
    ramifications resulting from Rosbergs radio penalty, which some paddock insiders
    feel could be the beginning of the end for the radio ruling.Shortly after the
    stewards decision was announced, Mercedes confirmed that they would appeal the
    penalty and, at the time of writing, it is expected that the team will do so.
    Championship points are championship points, after all, and points mean
    (financial) prizes.But what any appeal, successful or otherwise, will achieve is
    a group rethink -- in discussion form -- of the rights and wrongs of the radio
    rules as they stand.There is some suspicion in the paddock that Mercedes went
    tactical, deciding that it was worth taking whatever penalty would be given in
    order to avoid what could well have been a DNF for the No.6 car. Lose anything
    between three and ten points based on a time penalty, or lose anything up to 18?
    There is a strategic advantage to be found in the right kind of penalty...None
    of Mercedes on-track rivals are going to want to give the Silver Arrows any
    quarter, given that the team is already romping away with the constructors title
    and the cold, hard cash that championship points lead to.Speaking very much off
    the record, several high-ranking paddock insiders said on Sunday night that they
    expect the Mercedes penalty will eventually lead to one of two outcomes: either
    the current restrictions on radio communication will be scrapped, allowing the
    sort of radio traffic fans were used to hearing until the start of this season,
    or there will be a near total lockdown on pit-car communications, preventing any
    messages that dont immediately precede a component dangerously going BANG!.By
    and large, the teams would prefer to be able to communicate with their drivers,
    especially when it comes to performing in-race car fixes that help preserve
    those components -- such as power units and gearboxes -- that come with their
    own penalties for using too many in the course of a season.There is also a
    strong argument from a fan and broadcasting perspective for doing more with team
    radio. In a technologically complex sport, which comes with a rulebook that can
    best be described as labyrinthine, allowing fans access to intra-team comms
    gives those watching each grand prix a better chance of understanding the
    individual dynamics (and dramas) playing out on track.The radio ban was
    introduced with the best of intentions, improving the show by restoring the
    power -- and the gladiatorial status -- to the drivers, but it has also had an
    impact on the quality of the show, as was the case with Lewis Hamilton in Baku.
    Watching fans were denied what could have been a close on-track battle when the
    Briton worked his way through every setting his steering wheel offered in an
    attempt to reset his power unit settings during the Azeri street race.While
    Rosberg will be rueing the lost points in the title fight, his ten-second
    sacrifice could lead to the end of the current -- confusing -- radio rules.

    . Los Angeles star goalie survived those perilous
    gymnastics with no problem, and he eventually backstopped the Kings to a

    absence, Jeff Carter scored the tiebreaking goal with 7:55 to play, and the
    Kings snapped their five-game losing streak with a 3-1 victory over the
    Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night.

    .H. -- Matt Kenseth made it 2 for 2 in the Chase, holding off
    teammate Kyle Busch to win Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. His new
    teammates have already nicknamed him Bags but draftee Hugh McCluggage wont be
    packing his anytime soon, declaring hes in for the long haul with the Brisbane
    Lions.Described by many recruiters as the best natural footballer in this years
    draft, midfielder McCluggage trained with the Lions for the first time on
    Wednesday in scorching 30 degree heat at Yeronga.A projected No.1 pick, the
    Warrnambool product was snared with Brisbanes third selection and in a shrewd
    move by the club, already finds himself surrounded by familiar faces.McCluggage
    is good mates with three of the Lions other draft picks, Jarrod Berry, Alex
    Witherden and Cedric Cox.Berry and McCluggage boarded together in high school
    for the last two years and both played for the North Ballarat Rebels and for Vic
    Country.Cox joined them at the Rebels halfway through this year, while
    McCluggage has played on Witherden in the TAC Cup and alongside him in
    representative footy.Its a deliberate strategy from the Lions in response to
    struggles with player rretention over the last few years.ddddddddddddMcCluggage
    said he was pumped when he found out whod be joining him up north.Its pretty
    amazing. I couldnt have really done any better, to be honest, McCluggage said.It
    was pretty low odds but Im really glad its happened, I get to come up here with
    my best mates.Were living with Harris Andrews, hes got a nice house. Itll be
    good.McCluggage, considered a strong chance of playing AFL football from round
    one next year, said he was convinced Brisbanes worst days were behind them.From
    what Ive heard, theyre on the up, he said.I liked the coach and all the staff I
    met with, and obviously further on in the draft I found out I was going with a
    few mates from back home as well, which made it even better.I cant really speak
    for how the boys found it the last few years, but I guess it is a good feel
    around here from what Ive seen in the first few days.
