@robbie I agree I can’t speak for the stewards, but I’m basing this purely on previous incidents where stewards have used the word “predominantly” or “wholly”.
There surely can’t be any doubt that, had Lewis […]
@jodrell * The Mercedes team radioing that Lewis was clearly alongside as an attempt to influence the stewards decision was clumsy and pointless when it’s a front/rear wheel touch
But Lewis was clearly a […]
Having said that, the offending player is likely to have an additional suspension if the recipient has a leg-break, so maybe not the best example in hindsight haha! But the main point stands that, in the context […]
For example, in football, if a player goes in for a dangerous tackle with studs raised it’s a red card regardless of whether the player on the receiving end receives minimal contact or a broken leg. It ultimately […]
Have been saying this for years. The outcome of an incident should never be a factor in the decision making, only the cause of the incident. Masi himself has been guilty of using the outcome as a reason behind the […]
@kotrba For me, this is something that is being overlooked. First onboard from Verstappen going into the corner. At 0:28 Hamilton can be seen alongside him.
Whilst I tend to agree with the steward’s analysis o […]
@jerejj Only two races in of course but it really does highlighht how quickly Bottas drops off the pace of Hamilton when the Mercs are no longer on-rails. Seems to be a lack of adaptability that could end up being […]
Ninjenius commented on the post, FIA's delayed penalty call was "not very professional" – Vettel 5 months, 1 week ago
Will copy my previous comment here since it’s directly applicable…
Not saying it was intentional by the stewards but the timing of Seb’s stop-go penalty was brutal! I appreciate there was a fair bit going o […]
Really was not a fan of Ted Kravitz’ insinuation that the drivers showed a lack of respect for Senna there. Very disappointing to hear although not too surprising given the amount of nonsence he often spews.
Ninjenius commented on the post, Horner defends Perez over Imola race errors after point-less finish 5 months, 1 week ago
@david-br Yeah what’s interesting as well looking at Perez’s onboard is that Ricciardo seemed to slow down a fair bit rather than closing the gap to Leclerc, almost as if he didn’t know that Perez wouldnt be […]
Not related to this incident but on the subject of penalties…
Not saying it was intentional by the stewards but the timing of Seb’s stop-go penalty was brutal! I appreciate there was a fair bit going on at […]
@peartree I guess it just depends on what “hard” racing means to each individual. To me it’s a positive term, maybe hard AND fair would have been a more apt way for me to describe it. It’s certainly more […]
@jeff1s Yeah they missed way too many overtakes.
And we don’t want to see overtakes in the small overlay that appears within the positions on the left, whilst the main feed is just cars following one another […]
@tflb I was thinking that exact same thing. If Leclerc had simply driven in front when Max was off track then Max wouldn’t have been allowed to retake the place, just like Perez. Max would have just reovertaken […]
*without punishment, I meant
Of course it’s allowed. Cars do it plenty at the Baku run off areas with punishment so Imola shouldn’t be any different. That’s what double-waved yellows are for.
Fully deserved win for Max, all won off the line and a hard but fair move at turn 2.
Lewis just too eager trying to overtake backmarkers, somewhat understandable given how much he was able to close up on Max. […]
@krommenaas If only. Can you imagine if team personnel and drivers had the freedom to speak like that in interviews? We’d have as many fans tuning in to watch the interviews as they would the race! Drive to […]
Interesting how Mercedes aren’t whinging about the regulation change. They’ve acknowledged it in interviews, sure, but they’re keeping their heads down and focussing on overcoming the relative deficit thats been […]
