Re: 2020 Russian Grand Prix Race Thread

I just voted Bottas driver of the day. I understood from a previous race that the race winner perforce has to be driver of the day. Or is that just when Hamilton wins? :-D Exactly what did Bottas do to be a driver of the day, except being handed the win by the stewards? I vote driver of the day - t...

Re: 2020 Russian Grand Prix Race Thread

Hamilton complaining, maybe you should read a rule book. Yup Handing stupid penalties for nothing only makes it look like it's done on purpose to handicap races and WDC.

Re: 2020 Russian Grand Prix Race Thread

And because this is "oh so dangerous..." and did nothing to noone let's decide a whole race by a rule that's not even in the rule book...
Pathetic. Then they wonder why interest in F1 is sinking. Nobody wants to watch races being decided by stupid rules and stewards.

Re: 2020 Russian Grand Prix Race Thread

F1 is becoming more and more a circus. Pathetic stewards. Why give such penalty for something that is not even during the race and is not danger to anyone. Such pathetic attempts to bring back some competition in the WDC.

What Bottas did was stupid. Even if he did not break any regulation, still it was stupid. Never seen a pilot do this, on the start line in the moment the safety car leaves. People have to understand that things happen in split of a second and a lot of things are done by instinct and by expectation, ...
