@oel-f1 Exactly. You hear it from the drivers too. “I will just take the 5s penalty if it gets me past the guy and hope that I pull a 5s gap afterwards. Or that I talk my way out of the penalty.”
Maybe not […]
@oel-f1 I agree that the time penalties aren’t perfect, for the reasons you said. A 5 second penalty can be worth taking intentionally sometimes, to gain track position. And it could cost you anywhere from n […]
@oel-f1 But I think the F1 stewards do use that response time to judge if a driver false started – wasn’t there an Alonso example like that? The fact is Bottas’s start wasn’t questioned so they wouldn’t have […]

Furthermore, since the start of the V6 engines, teams have not […]
@oel-f1 I agree entirely. I’ve long believed the 5 / 10 second time penalties work well for minor things, but overtaking off the track is not minor. It literally defeats the point of having corners and […]

I think Team orders would be quite easy to discern @oel-f1. Verstappen is not going to follow any of them anyway, so you only need to try for Ricciardo. But I doubt he would just get out of the way either.
