Comment of the day
Should Marcus Ericsson have abandoned his car more quickly when he spun off in Malaysia?
It took 80 seconds from him beaching the car until he was out of the car. The crane waited 55 seconds for Ericsson getting out of the car doing nothing before being able to continue recovery. Ericsson should have been out of the car by the time the crane arrived. In that case, the recovery operation would have been complete with the crane off track again within 65 seconds after the car was beached. I think Ericsson deserves a very stern talking to from the Stewards.

However Michael Schumacher’s record run of most consecutive grands prix without a race-ending technical failure, which had begun in 2001, ended after 58 races.
