  • ​​​​​Verstappen handed five-place grid penalty for not respecting yellow flags during qualifying
    Bottas gets three place penalty

    Comment


    • I didn't think it was going to stop Max finishing at least 2nd and was right.
      With 6 laps to go there should have been a VSC to clear the track, I said you watch they'll wait 3 laps as Max already has the fastest lap already it'll prevent Lewis getting it...guess what happened

      • You really think the powers that be dream this stuff up, communicate with each other, and then implement, in a lap or two - over a point?

        Given the dozens of people who'd have to keep quiet, for years, it seems far fetched to me.

        Why would those powers want what you imply?

          You cannot be serious! If I recall correctly, Latifi had become the third driver to have his left front tire blow, and did a great job of trying to get as far off track as possible, so as not to affect the other runners. But then it turned out that they couldn't hook or push his car out of the way, so marshals had to put themselves in a dangerous place to get this accomplished.

          I don't always agree with the stewards, but to suggest that there was malfeasance on their part, just to try and help Verstappen get the point for fastest lap, is ridiculous. IMHO.

          Meanwhile, great to see Alonso up on the podium again, he drove a great race!



          It's going to be interesting to see how 'fragile' the tires are at tracks like this during the next season, with a new set of rules.

          • Fernando on the podium was the icing on the cake

            • Did anybody besides Alonso make the one stop strategy work?

              • Michael took Damon out, Senna took Prost out, Prost took Senna out, and on and on. There's no equitable solution.
                As for track limits... unless there is an obstacle which will inflict damage to the car, they'll not be respected.

                  If you play that race review in my previous post, at 32:02 Sam Collins does a thorough review of all the tire strategies and how they worked out.

                    Max had a free stop for soft tires in hand. He was getting fastest lap.

                    • Max has an 8 point lead because of the "Sprint races". If there were no sprint races he would have a 1 point lead at this point?


                      Personally, I think he got a free pass with his turn 4 antics in Brazil?

                      You may disagree, but penalties from early GP's indicate otherwise?

                      • It seems to me if you're on the inside and you drive so deep into the corner that you can't keep your car on-track, and if the car on the outside is truly alongside you, then you are in fact forcing them off track. Their only choice is go off or crash. Doesn't really matter if it's intentional or not. It was fortunate for both that this track had such big runoff areas instead of walls. If that was just racing, it was pretty poor racing.

                        • Masi keeps trying to make the FIA's mantra of 'let them race' fit rules that pretty much rule out what Max pulled in Brazil.

                          if we end up with another Prost/Senna-style wipe out, that will be on Masi.

                            'Max has an 8 point lead because of...' Spa farce.

                            • That could of gone the other way, just as the sprints could of.

                              If Max wins the title it is something that just has to be accepted, the rabbit hole of saying 'if' should be avoided, not least because it could be applied plenty of times in the past.

                              • I don't disagree with you.

                                I just think the rules have been applied more in Max and Red Bull's favour.
