I see. Senna, Clark, Ascari all died while driving, through no faults of their own. I suppose you'll say that was of their making too.

Let it go, Fiki. Your hatred, focusing on one but pardoning others, has become tiresome.

We have only had 2 full races and about 40 other laps to compare them. Not enough time really. They have both had too many issues to see them alongside eachother much. However, Verstappen is better in qualifying now by the look of it.

Alonso calling for a red flag to clear all the debris.... makes sense I guess...

What is with Charlie Whiting? Has he finally lost it! this is absolutely ridiculous sending a safety car out for every time there is debris on the track!

Says a lot about you that statement.
You can think whatever you like about me but the reality is that he's ruined races for many others on countless ocasions with his "ambitious" driving. It's about time he got brought back down to earth a bit.

I think this tests the new rule.. will the race start behind the safety car, or from the grid? :O

This, most certainly, warrants a safety car. Already had one big puncture, don't need another.

Highly doubt they will penalise Hamilton or Vettel for the safety car incident. They're reluctant to make calls on small incidents this year and I don't think they will want to make a call on one involving the two championship contenders.

Oh that red flag conundrum of changing tyres. Ruined what was looking like a really good Monaco GP a few years back and now looks like ruining a comeback by Ricciado.

Well, that's a way of losing a podium for the team, not the vague podium dreams of last race!

McLaren should do an engine change on ALO's car during the red flag. He's done over 20 laps on it and surely it's almost expired. They have to save this 8th place!!

It was a really strange incident. No brake testing at all. Vettel hit Hamilton in response. 100% Vettel's fault...

Why not? I personally think its a really good track and unless you want more car parks like Paul Ricard, we need more tracks like this.
