How that isn't a slam dunk penalty for Leclerc I do not know.

And surely a penalty for Vettel. Exactly the same as Kimi in Russia.

How much bad luck can Norris get in one season?!

Got to be a penalty for Le Clerc and Albon, surely.

He wasn't forced off track he was crashed into. Obviously he complains. So would anyone.

Seb must be getting a drive through if they keep things consistent. Kimi Raikkonen got one for his false start.

The stewards need to sharpen up. It shouldn't take this long to give Vettel a slam dunk penalty.

Stewards waiting long enough so Vettel can come out before most of the traffic : :lol: , didn't Kimi get a penalty pretty quickly?

Pretty daft to assume I'm talking about contact between him and Verstappen in a bog standard racing incident, but yes that was more on Leclerc.


He drives around with damage and ends up disintegrating his car into the path of Hamilton. It was dangerous and stupid.

Word from this end is that Vettel did not leave his grid box before he stopped again. Just speculation from commentary here...

And still not decision on Leclerc. I don't know why but for some reasons the stewards are desperate not to penalise Ferrari.

Interesting new tyre deg graphics. No idea how accurate they are though.


Vettel is on the 2-stopper.
