    Lewis's pitbox warned him late.

    Also Lewis with Gasly.
    Looks like dangerous track, and maybe race is boring, no chance for overtaking looks like.

    The pitbox has the technology and telemetry to warn their drivers who is on a hot lap and who is approaching.

    We'll see on the overtaking come race day on this new track.

    I'm quite happy with this track. F1 isn't MotoGP, changing position on every lap and at every corner isn't what F1 is. F1 is all about close racing and high speed and this track provides all of those attributes.

    Lewis summoned for double waved yellows.

    Let's get some consistency here and penalize Lewis like they penalized Max. 5 place grid penalty.


    And for impeding Mazepin as well which is a seperate penalty.

    Fuel leak for Bottas in FP3 means the team have had to change his PU for qualifying. He will now run another from his pool so no penalty.

    Consistency would be nice, but I doubt it will happen. And if it does, we will have to hear him whine that “they” are trying to keep him down.

    true. It's possible, for impeding, Hamilton could get a reprimand. The double yellow was short but still, if stewards don't give a penalty, a reprimand could be enough. But wait, Hamilton already has 1 from MEX so would have 3 reprimands and that's a 10 place penalty

    The word "consistency" doesn't exist in F-1 dictionary!!

    Max’s infringement was during Quali. Ham issue is in FP3. Doubt there will be much out of it … because of new track + almost everyone faced same in FP1 & FP2.

    Kravitz says the stewards will use the Zandvoort decision "reprimand" for Verstappen as a potential decision for Hamilton failing to slow under double waved yellows that cleared when he was on the straight.

    Max's and to include Bottas infringement at Qatar had several mitigating circumstances.

    So a driver can "ignore" double waved yellows during free practice and not get a grid penalty drop????

    Anyways it’s RB to loose pole from here. But Mercs have advantage on race pace especially Hard tyres.

    If I could make a decision, then I would have been Race Steward in F1.

    I agree with your point, but my statement was more on to track specific + everyone was facing same issue in FP1 & FP2.

    And what about for impeding Mazapin? Swept under the rug as well? What a joke, just hand him the trophies already and stop wasting our time. Just once I’d love for his engine to blow up….

    Bottas has PU issues.

    Max running into ALOT of traffic at the last turn on his flying lap.
