Let's throw full beercans at Formula 1 Grand Prix cars

The ire of the crowd at the USA Grand Prix has resulted in full beercans and bottles being thrown onto the track by the crowds at Indianapolis.
OK, so the field has been cut to 6 cars due to the failure of Michelin to provide tyres for the teams not using Bridgestone as a result of safet concerns about the integrity of the Michelins. So it is a token "race", and the crowd is right to feel disappointed and even angry at the failure of the F1 teams to find some solution to this farce.
But throwing objects onto the track with cars doing 200+ mph and race marshalls having to risk their lives to retrieve these missiles is absolutely crazy.....
