Could those who are pitting for interns have started on them instead of wets or was it forced on all the drivers because of the safety car?

Until the VSC, Hammy was almost 4 seconds up on Rosberg. Crushing him hard.

To be fair, if you need the SC then you should need wets.

The fact that pretty much all the drivers where saying it and so many dived into the pits should be enough to show the sc was out for far to long.

Makes sense. I was wondering about it because it was obvious a bunch of drivers were going to dive into the pits for inters the second the safety care left. So academically, when it's ok to remove the safety car, wets would no longer be required. Interesting.

Why so many people get annoyed with f1, like mikey said the full wets is now called the safety car tyre ;)

Rosberg continues to move backwards compared to Hamilton. He's just not comfortable out there.

If Verstappen didn't get a dodgy pitstops I reckon he would of already been past Rosberg by now.

You have a good point. In my opinion it just should be rolling start, but not lapping behind safety car.
