They also say that any car that is a lap down is required to overtake the safety car if that is the race directors decision. Only instructing 5 cars to do so _is not using the safety car_, it’s breaking the rules.
Honest question, why does it leave a sour taste. Surely you don’t want people to be able to break rules with no repercussions? They even admitted the rule was broken in the hearing we’ve had – the bare faced che […]
I don’t know what their 15 year plan is, but I doubt their target demographic will care about an appeal in a sport a decade and a half ago. Probably selling electric cars to Beijingers.
There is precedent – when the flag was waved a lap early by some celeb, the race length was reduced.
I doubt the Concorde agreement gives the race director the authority to ignore any rules for any reason. If they put that in the rule book regardless – and reading it, it does not seem to apply, at least to me, […]
Mercedes amg are not selling cars to people who watch drive to survive, their market is pensioners who remember that mercs never went wrong in the 80’s. I doubt the brand managers are panicking.
I don’t disagree at all, although I will say, the headlines are going to be terrible no matter what. Masi truely did bring the sport into disrepute.
Results get changed all the time post race. People start saying stuff like this when it’s their driver, and are nowhere to be seen when it’s not
Exactly this, we can all agree they have been fantastic to watch (in the background while we focus on the amazing racing we have seen up and down the field all year 🤔 right?)
They have not given any quarter an […]
Yes, the safety car rules are there for… shock… safety. You can’t break them for the show… well, we’ll see if you can or not, but certainly you shouldn’t.
Christian Horner requested the cars move out of the way, and was really angry at the initial decision not to move them. You might be right, but Red Bull didn’t think so, which will be used against them.
The stewards were nothing to do with the restart, they don’t have the power to order cars to overtake or not. The FiA made that decision.
I genuinely think it’s only there so the FiA can use it to give Max a 5 second penalty so they don’t have to admit they were incompetent. I think if max gets 5 for it, Merc quietly drop the other one […]
Yes but we all decided that we didn’t like that after Vettel got a 5s penalty for dangerous track re-entry in Montreal and we were so collectively angry about it, the FiA literally wrote into the rule book that t […]
The CAS take a “balance of probabilities” approach, they wouldn’t nullify the race, they would give it to Hamilton.
I was talking about the theoretical Red Bull protest from lap 1 – unless you’re telling me rb did protest that after the race?
There’s a time limit to lodge a protest, and it’s passed. Besides which, they would need new evidence as it already was referred to the stewards.
Please stop with the racism. Try to make your points without it. I mean, we all know who you really are, we know you can control yourself when it’s your main account on the line, just pack it in.
* have at most two..,
* late = let
They take their decisions within the rules. They kept Lewis out knowing that one of two things were in the rule book: either they at most 2 laps of racing with 4 cars between them or they late the cars through and […]
