Barriers have to be repaired at any circuits. I, for one, prefer red flags because we don't waste yet more laps behind a safety car. It's like the stewards can't win with some of you. Safety cars are moaned about due to loss of racing laps and then red flags are moaned about.

Well contact would have happened, who else would be in the 3 way fight?
Yep.

Hamilton and Bottas crash. Ricciardo, Stroll and Albon are fighting for the win.

Very exciting.
As I thought.
Glad you agree a Ricciardo, Stroll and Albon fight for the win would be fun.
No just meaning your wish to see the Mercs crash each other out of the race.
I can't believe most fans of racing wouldn't enjoy a Ricciardo, Stroll and Albon fight for the win.

I'm at a loss to understand how this wasn't a red flag immediately. Surely the need to rebuild the tyre wall was obvious?
There's no reason to red flag this.

No-one injured & the tracks not blocked.

This all could've been sorted under the SC.
With a loss of at least 5 racing laps, probably a lot more. Why is this worse that cruising around behind a safety car?

Yet another red flag - anything to try to ruin Hamilton's and Mercedes race !

Disgraceful.

.
The previous two starts did not ruin Hamilton's race. At least not in a way that we can say was unlucky for him. And he actually had an equal start To bottas at the 2nd restart and simply gained from slipstream into the first corner. This is the first time Hamilton's race may be ruined by something that is unlucky from his side.

Somebody in the FIA rediscovered the red flag a few weeks ago & is loving the their new toy. (Much like the warning flag has been lost).
At the same time the VSC has been put in the bin.

I agree with the use of the red flags. It should be rolling start though.

Last week there were tyres everywhere after LeClerc's crash.
This looks only as if conveyor belt needs reattaching. Easy to imagine that's relatively quickly doable under SC conditions.

This race is really taxing gearboxes for those still running.

I agree, up to a point. It isn't the Spectacle Car for nothing. But would you really, honestly prefer to see the cars continuing not to race behind the Spectacle Car for lap after lap while they rebuild the tyre wall? I mean, even I can see that this red flag is necessary in modern F1.

The race is boring, sod it let's throw out another red flag and spice it up. Going to happen every race now.
It's not really though. There was a great battle for third, and both ferrari's fighting for position.
I only watch races for the lead, not really interested in midfield battles, that's how most races are looked at from the outside. In that sense it was boring.
That's fair. I've learned to live with it, and have lately managed to have the perspective third place is the new win. Especially here with Albon never getting one before.

Why would you want to lose loads of racing laps when you don't have to? Everyone pitted anyway. If it wasn't for the standing start the red flag wouldn't actually make a difference to the race.

The problem here is the use of a tyre barrier. Modern circuits haven't used them for years for this reason.

They do. TecPro barriers are used in limited, specific, areas as an alternative.

Much as I'm a fan of gravel, there's a case that tarmac would have slowed Stroll more, in this circumstance.

Possibly. Hard to say really. If it was a puncture or suspension failure, the broken corners wouldn't help on tarmac and that kind of failure also lifts one of the other undamaged corners off the surface. This may have meant only two tyres would be making much difference with slowing the car down on tarmac.

Whilst other things are used in certain places, I think it often looks like tyres aren't used because of the conveyor belt covering along the front and often a covering on the top. Makes it look rather different from an old fashioned tyre wall.

Because a red flag should only be used when it's impossible to for the cars to continue circulating safely under any circumstances.

Red flags shouldn't be used as a tool to keep the race entertaining or prevent it from being boring. Right here they've used the red flag like the SC. It's just become a tool to keep the race exciting & not just a safety tool.

Indeed. I last went up to look at a tyre wall when Magnussen crashed atop the Raidillon, 2017 I think?

Safety car or Red flag and he's next to Bottas regardless. I agree that we shouldn't have standing starts after a red flag though.

I think you cand defent much easier on outside in T1, you can brake much later and use the camber of the corner to stick the car around...

It has been confirmed that Bottas backed off to get fastest lap. The gap then closed to Hamilton to just over a second.I don't think Bottas needs to worry about Albon.

Yeh but I was hoping Ricciardo would (fairly) block the outside forcing Albon to try his pass on the inside in which perhaps Ricciardo can stay side by side and have the inside of the following corner. Unreasonable?

I think you cand defent much easier on outside in T1, you can brake much later and use the camber of the corner to stick the car around...
Almost everyone who defended on inside there lost the position.
Yeh but I was hoping Ricciardo would (fairly) block the outside forcing Albon to try his pass on the inside in which perhaps Ricciardo can stay side by side and have the inside of the following corner. Unreasonable?
I was hoping the same, that should work.
They didn't figure it out yet, probably next time here they will know how to defend in that corner.

It depends on who is ahead at the apex, as according to Charlie Whiting, that driver is allowed to run the other off the track on the outside.
Use every man after his desert, and who should scape whipping? Use them after your own honour and dignity.
