I guess they needed to check whether their updates would work in the heat though.
Probably but that may have left them on the back foot for winning this race, having said that wouldn't it be typical if Mercedes are struggling then it rains tomorrow? :)

Renault are crap.

Just crap.

Totally, utterly, completely, thoroughly, entirely, absolutely, disgracefully, humiliatingly, embarrassingly, undisputedly, wholeheartedly, unconditionally, unrestrictedly crap.
Only took 7 yrs, 5 mths & 21 days.

Given the apparent speed of the Ferrari I would say no.

"Issues with track limits". What has F1 become, Stalinist organization? See how Indycar solved it. Drive as you wish everybody, why is that even an issue in F1?

Really?

So the are absolutely no rules in Indycar compelling the drivers to respect the track limits?

So in the pic below, it'd be acceptable for driver to totally disregard the chicane and instead straightline it keeping the 2nd apex of the chicane to his left?

Ah, another of those forum members that put's in my mouth things I never said. Welcome to the club.

First I never said that there are "absolutely no rules in Indycar".
Second, Hockenheim does not have a curve like you proposed.
Thirdly, this is what actually was mentioned on the forum and what I was bringing.
https://twitter.com/joc__1991/status/11 ... 52?lang=en
While this is surely an extreme case, and Hockenheim does have such deep layer of track in the curve that is currently addressed by the stewards, they could just leave the drivers do the estimation between damage and gain possibilities. That's all.

Both Vettel and Ferrari are performing so far below par. I think Benotto will be gone by the end of the season.

Surely that time will get deleted from Hamilton? Went over the white line at the final corner.

And again....

Am I missing something here? Both of Hamilton's laps should be deleted?

Not noticing that he got blocked by a Red Bull earlier in the lap though which I find more interesting bearing in mind what happened to Hamilton in Austria.

I did notice. We'll see what comes of it. It's a bit annoying he seems to be getting treated differently regarding track limits though.

Perez and Russell win their qualifying battles for the season. At least Stroll got out of Q1 this time.

It's only if the car goes left of the blue and white kerbing.. so he was well within that limit in both runs.

He was fine based on what Crofty just said I think. You can't go beyond the kerb which I don't think Hamilton was.

If you want a close championship you have to root for Redbull Honda in the future. Ferrari just not up to the task man. It's just ridiculous.

When was the last time a team, let alone Ferrari, have had a double mechanical failure during qualifying?
