I would say it is fair and smart, and like Domenicalli said afterwards "every team principal would have done the same thing". Even Horner said it made sense.So, opinions on whether Ferrari's "strategy" was poor sportsmanship?

Let's keep NASCAR out of this can we please?Here's how Austin can get more "'merkins" (Texas accent, a la LBJ) to come: cross promote with NASCAR and have a Nationwide Truck race with F1 guys! Hell, Kimi can teach them how to drive them thar trucks. Sort of like the old BMW Procar, but with ... uhh, trucks.
