Just from memory.
So we didn’t have a precedent then? At least in recent history. Now we do.

The only similar incident I recall is Kimi at the European Gp in 2007, also in the wet. No penalty.
Kimi actually slid out, he didn't intentionally bail out of stopping costing him another lap on tyres not suitable for condition.
Nothing in the rules about intent though. Nearly all the time a driver breaks a rule, its not intentional.

Mercedes were aware of a potential penalty and told Hamilton to push. I am wondering if they said to Bottas, drop back a bit and finish 4.5 seconds behind. This ensured a Bottas win with Hamilton 2nd with a penalty.

It also justifies the team order even more, if Bottas had overtaken Hamilton. Mercedes would have potential had a 1-3 or even 1-4 finish. With Hamilton ahead they could guarantee 1-2 even if he got a penalty.

Looking at the list I'm not even sure a lot of them have ever been seen on TV.

There is no regulation about crossing the white lines on either put entry or pit exit (and I just read through them to be sure) - in some races, there is a directive by race control not to cross some (either on pit entry, pit exit, or both) but this is on a case by case basis, and is only some when the exit or entry is on the racing line.

There was no such directive in this case. The only regulation that Hamilton infringed was regarding track limits. Given that it was under a safety car and no overtaking was allowed, he was near no other cars and not defending a position, giving anything other then a reprimand would have been crazy.
I don't disagree with reprimand given to Hamilton. This was issue when Kimi was given just 5 seconds in 2016 and now when Hamilton was just given reprimand. So far everyone is just guessing what isn't helpful at all and destroys the sport. Stewards needs to do better job explaining the penalties to fans or/and just be more consistent.

To be clear why I mention fans. I do it because that sport exist in present form solely because of fans.
In Kimi's case there was a directive from race control at the start of the weekend that they were not to cross the line.

It does not make it fact, neither is it wrong from the season review I have seen none was shown to have done that any of the drivers crossed the pit lane the way Hamilton did.

But most would surely not have been shown on season reviews at all? I don't think I've ever seen most of them.

There have been reports that Rosberg was supposed to be the interviewer in this GP. Now it has emerged that he was scheduled to do both Monaco and Hockenheim, but Hamilton vetoed this decision to the FIA and got Rosberg removed.

Not sure how true this is, but very bad taste if that's true. Rosberg looks like he has buried the hatchet, Lewis not so much.

What I'd like to know is why Hamilton has the ability to make that decision at all.

That just makes no sense whatsoever. He couldn't have known that he for sure would finish on the podium. And seeing how the weekend played out he was lucky he ended up on the podium. Or was it a conditional axe?
Lewis doesn't want to have to do anything with Nico. That is hatchet that I as a fan of his wish he would bury, but to veto Rosberg from an interview sounds a little too much, even for him. So I smell lies here.

Of course he couldn't have known, although driving one of the top cars and being one of the best drivers, the chances are quite high indeed.

This has been reported in a few sites, so I am not sure how much truth it holds, I just thought it would be worth a mention. I think Rosberg was scheduled for interviewing the two GP's and when Lewis got the info he just opposed it.

Now it seems that this info came out from Nico, so there's that to consider of course. But I do not think that Rosberg would tell such porkies, he is the one that is praising Lewis quite a lot in his vlogs and seems to have put things behind him.

I also wish that they would be friends again, it is such a shame to spoil a friendship like that

My friend, never question his immaturity. He got angry at Sky commentators because they did not praise him enough. This is just inn:

The reigning World Champion took to Instagram to share his opinion: “I never get to watch the races but just got home and watching Sky.

“I find it amusing listening to ex-drivers commentating, not a single one of them could find a good word to say.

“Whatever the reason is, it’s OK I forgive you.

“Positivity and love wins always no matter what words you use to try and undermine me, I started 14th today and finished 1st.

“God is good all the time.”

Excellent driver. Yet he seriously lacks something in his head that is not related to driving.

Oh dear, that reads like a 13 year olds Facebook page, or the leader of the free world's Twitter feed.

Still, I find this Rosberg story to be too much, I just struggle to believe it.

I was always a Hammo supporter but bloody hell this guy's turning into a real Prima Dona.

Agree that it appears he has some reality issues he should be addressing and I could go on about the God bit but that'd be a tad like shooting fish in a barrel and maybe a topic for another thread.

Max seems to possibly have that same level of potential in the wet but you must be kidding with Alonso and Ricciardo. Neither is a wet weather specialist (especially not Daniel). Vettel has had some really strong results in the wet but with Lewis there are times where he is on a different planet. Qualifying at Monza last year and of course the fabled win at Silverstone in 2008 both come to mind.
Yep agree with this. I think I read an Andrew Benson article after last year's Singapore GP stating that Lewis did lap times that weren't possible according to Mercedes simulation. Not saying he would have won if Vettel hadn't crashed but just shows how good he is in the wet
I agree, but I'd also add Hulk to the list. He consistently has something extra when it's wet (although his real area of expertise is a mixed track, much like Button's was).
I would say
1. Hamilton
2. Verstappen
3. Alonso, Vettel (until yesterday...), Hulkenberg or Stroll

Maybe add Ocon in there too

I don't think any other drivers come alive in the wet like those guys often do
In respect to Verstappen it was strange how nondescript he was when it rained even gambling on inters, then I believe he went onto ultras and the 2 laps he had before the SC he had no great pace.

You make a good point but then again Bottas was lapping in the 1-15s towards the end of the race and the fastest lap by Hamilton was a 1-15.5s so maybe not?

Yeah sometimes Hamilton doesn't do himself any favours, given that Rosberg was part of the Sky team I wonder if it's more to do with that given what's been said about the Rosberg podium interviews?

He certainly seems a little more out there and perhaps fragile this season than previously. I have always had the feeling he is a little socially awkward.

Hamilton is certainly emotionally immature, unless he means it kind of tongue in cheek but even then it just does not come across like that.

I never saw the post race stuff, I would have expected a Hamilton love in from sky though??

Yeah they tend to give him good press, like I say I think maybe it relates to Rosberg's involvement with Sky, rather telling that he removed the Instagram after later Rosberg lavished praise upon him.

More pre-race/post qualy nonsense I believe. Post race I suspect it would the Sky 'experts' turn to rip into Vettel's state of mind; and point out where he went wrong; whilst blowing smoke up Hamilton's ****.

Hamilton's a bit wishy washy for my liking social media wise; but I understand why he tones it down. But I am enjoying this year with the likes of Hamilton, Vettel and Max ripping into the media regularly for asking stupid questions and trying to push the drivers into making verbal indiscretions that the press can then express their collective faux outrage over.

Agreed. But if Webber is ok with Vettel, then I can't see why it is not possible!

Well I guess everything that happened between the two was very much out in the open, with Mercedes certain things seem to be surrounded in secrecy.

Not sure how true this is, but very bad taste if that's true. Rosberg looks like he has buried the hatchet, Lewis not so much.

That's true. Given that they were friends, we do not know what was said between them in closed doors.

Indeed and it would be Mercedes' wish for things to be kept under the carpet.

Have you checked?
Just from memory.
There is no way anyone could possible remember all those incidents. :lol:
Well you like to google so you can prove me wrong.

Last time we saw someone miss the pit lane was Kimi, there are some incidents you don't forget.

I think that frequently when I read this forum and see people talking about what happened in Turn Whatever in this race or that race back in 2008, followed by a list of several more incidents in this situation or that. I am not supporting Rockie here, or criticizing poker... only pointing out that it seems as though the forum has dozens of walking F1 encyclopedias and a few like myself, so damned lazy that we don't want to commit the effort to refute or verify all those numbers/incidents thrown our way/

I never saw the post race stuff, I would have expected a Hamilton love in from sky though??
Yeah they tend to give him good press, like I say I think maybe it relates to Rosberg's involvement with Sky, rather telling that he removed the Instagram after later Rosberg lavished praise upon him.
Ah he did remove it? Good.

That's true. It seems that so many people can remember specifics, it always makes me worried about my mental state!

I can't watch videos at work, so I can't google the races myself, sometimes it is difficult to follow a conversation without a reminder.

Anyway, back on topic

I'm sure a lot of this (though not all) is people thinking they remember something, going on google and finding it before posting. I just post with I remember or I think as I can't be arsed or when I can be arsed I can't find what I'm looking for

Yeah, this is probably true. I just can't remember so many incidents... Goldfish memory!
