I cant speak for gio. But for hamilton. He is the first one on the scene. Probably somewhere 10 seconds after the safety car came out. And when did the message come up on the pit gantry for bono to react and tell lewis to stay out. That's what saved all the other drivers with the exception of gio. The engineers would of seen the message and reacted and told the drivers. Hamilton was close to the pit entrance when the safety car came out.Asphalt_World wrote: ↑Sun Sep 06, 2020 3:58 pmBut, how did all but 2 drivers know about the signs and see them? That's the question.wire2004 wrote: ↑Sun Sep 06, 2020 3:56 pmpurchville wrote: ↑Sun Sep 06, 2020 3:15 pmHe failed to see x2 big red X's , on the exit of Parabolica, before entering the pit lane.

Hamilton does have some brain fades, but ultimately his team gave him the instruction to box and should have been the safety net for Hamilton. Either way it's a blunder, but at least we got to see Hamilton's racing skills afterwards, which painted a sorry picture for Bottas.
2 big red x's that he wouldn't necessarily need to look at because it should say SC on it.
Jenson Button said it as well. I Have never seen the boards that give the flags and SC sign have this red X on the board to signify a closed pit. Because there should be traffic lights at the pit entrance that signify the pit lane is open or closed.
I Have never in all my time watching formula 1 in the last 26 years seen this sign. You would be looking for the traffic lights at the pit entrance to tell you if the pit lane was closed.
Sorry. Where were the traffic lights at the pit entrance. As is the case the pit exit.
Why was there no traffic lights at the pit entrance??? It is well known that there is traffic lights in the pit entrance. Where it is wildly known that During the race. Is To close the pit lane. And During practice and Qualifiying. The red light signifys you to go the weigh bridge.
Of course lewis would not be looking at the boards. Neither would any other driver. For him. He would be looking for the traffic lights at the pit entrance if he was to abort the pit stop.
Another question why I'm at it. Why did it not come up on the drivers steering wheel like every other flag and safety car message does which would of given lewis opportunity to abort the pit stop.
The only conclusion I can come up is the fia did not give the message straight away because sky recieve the same info as the teams in the commentary booth. And they were just as confused as to why sainz didnt come in until.it came up on the screen.
