I watch F1 but was in Arizona for the Singapore race. Ferrari has been having issues with the fuel hose release light in the cockpit malfunctioning, and ended up banging up/dragging a few pit guys. The also did not place in the top 8 in this race.

They also had an issue a few weeks with it. I guess the guy in front dropping the paddle was wasting precious seconds.

Mopar, most races are on Speed Live at 7am on Sunday (Tivo FTW). Some are re-broadcast by Fox at Noon and Speed will also replay them. This Singapore race was one of the few night races, might of been the only one this year.

Felipe Massa's Ferrari was released from the pits before fueling was finished & before the fueling rig was disconnected from the car.

Most teams use a crew member holding a lollipop to release the driver only after all tasks are finished in the stop. Ferrari, in an attempt to save fractions of a second, uses an electronic status indicator. This indicator gives the driver a green light when he's cleared to go. At Massa's 1st stop it gave a false green. Rumor has it one of the mechanics made the error but Ferrari won't say who.

He was 1 pt behind in the championship at the time & this cost him a race he probably would have won. With only 3 rounds left, it might have cost him the title. We'll see...
