The Hulk went out first then basically stopped his car on the track.

Blame the drivers, blame the Hulk.


Why single out Hulkenberg. Any of the drivers could've hit the accelerator & crossed the line in time.

I think team engineers have to shoulder a lot of blame too.

Blame the drivers just as much. Vertually all of them went stupidlly slow. the teams left it late but gave them enough time. I blame both but mainly the driver.

So we had two drivers deliberately drive through the run off and another ignore yellow flags.

After what we've seen the last 8 days.

And people wonder why I'm blase about safety. None of the drivers genuinely care.

Surely Bottas can’t keep that time, he went 0.059 off pole driving through a yellow flag zone.

It's under investigation, I think Stroll and the Hulk might get penalised?

Pretty sure it was a Renault and McLaren going side by side through Curva Grande, looked like neither wanted to be in front of the other. Nobody else could get past.

Wouldn't surprise me if theres some action taken against them both given this was something they told the drivers not to do after the F3 stuff.

Hulk sainz and stroll were definitely to blame for that stupidity. Sainz and hulk basically blocked the track at curve grande and it took the ferraris trying to overtake for anyone to speed up. Nobody further back could do anything

Leclerc actually just made it as far as I could see, albeit he was the only one that couldn't gain from being one of the only ones to do so.

Both Ferrari's got past leading up to the Roggia then it was I think Leclerc slowed.

The Ferrari's could've kept going at speed but they were playing games with each other too

Going through a run off area intentionally should result in a penalty. They are for cars with mechanical issues or flying off out of control. Any can in there should bring out yellow flags and can effect other cars which is not fair.

From what he said, he backed off just before the finish line. I think that is the reason he had his time back on the board. I actually think he could have got pole if he was just a tiny bit further up.

Sure Leclerc made it because neither he or Sainz had the chequered flag next to his name on the screen graphics once the clock reached zero.

Am I missing something here... What was stopping anyone getting round in time? If the car in front is too slow go round then and get your lap in.

I don't think there is a penalty for it though as long as you don't gain an advantage, which, I suppose when you think about it, that's exactly what Hulkenberg was trying to do.

That was only for a short moment. There was plenty of time to get around slow cars. It's just that no one was in a hurry to do that. Alternatively, they could have left the pits a minute earlier and this farce would not have taken place.

Leclerc did the same thing earlier on as well so should be one for him too. And Bottas of course for ignoring yellow flags.

Sainz and Hulkenberg were the two cars at the front, and they were blocking the track in a way that no one else could get past. Monza is quite a narrow track and with no tarmac runoff on the Curva Grande it is possible for two cars to form a roadblock.

Penalties should be dished out to both drivers if you ask me. It's not too far different to Alonso blocking Hamilton in the pits in Hungary.

Minimum lap times aren't great because they still allow you to crawl along in places if you blast the rest of the circuit. Surely a minimum speed should be applied as well as a minimum lap time so doing 5mph through the first chicane and not accelerating out of it would never happen.

Did you not see the track was blocked, Vettel was waving for the cars running 2 abreast to get out of the way.

I'm a Ferrari fan and regardless of who went through the chicane on purpose, a penalty system should be instigated as a rule. They are there for safety, not tactics.

It's all just a big ploy to promote reverse grid races.... Very poor for fans at the circuit, at least they have a Ferrari on pole but not good for those who have flown from further afield!

Backing off just before the finish line. That would be AFTER the actual incident. The reason for having to back off. If he went past Kimi full bore and ignored the flags he should get a penalty time deleted or not.

He was leading the pack into the Roggio. I'd think he should've made the start - finish line easily after that
