    Maybe try watching a racing series other than F1. You'll see that Indycar, IMSA, Super GT, and tons of other racing series are smart enough to have wreckers and cranes on all sides of a track, and can get get one car moved in *snap fingers* two or three laps.

    I've said it before, I'll say it again. F1 has the greatest innovation when it comes to the cars. But when it comes to marshalling, cleaning up simple accidents, fires, and general safety, they are behind the rest of the motorsports world, and have been for decades.

    Had no answer for the speed of red bull, tyre management was a bit better but still nothing compared to those around us.

    Not like that! What I am thinking, if something like this happen, like 10 laps from the end, it is better to red flagged it and than restart it, than to spent all those laps for nothing. You know that cheapest ticket is 100 EUR!? I am sure people would like to see racing, not parade for that money!!!

    Exactly right. When the car is garbage and two seconds off the pace you don’t expect anything. Finally they build a great car and you really feel like this could be it then they sit on their hands while others develop and make constant mistakes in strategy and you end up screaming at and genuinely thinking of shooting the television.

    Then you see the look at Charles’ face and you want to cry for him. The kid is a rock star and has no support from the team because the TP is a total tool.

    Fans rightfully booing…garbage way to end a race. Liberty and the FIA should be ashamed. You wanted to be entertainment, but you end a race like this?

    No… RB is faster race car. Ferrari 2nd or 3rd fastest car now because of Race pace (Tyre Deg is heavier for them).

    Ferrari need to find solution & fix. That’s it.

    You forgot wiping the track off dry with a fleet of trucks with turbines and scrubbers.
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    The only way Ferrari can win next season title is built the car around Leclerc & give a strong race car. That’s it.

    This means that as of now, Latifi is only ahead of a guy who raced only in the first 2 races in the entire year IIRC.

    Ferrari knew they had a fast car at the very first race. What they've done this year with the development is unforgiveable.

    It would improve the show in that case I agree. On the other hand if we were at the front today and it finished in the same manner we wouldn't be questioning the safe car finish..

    You and I saying the obvious is not going to matter. We can't influence Ferrari's decision.

    Right now the F1-75 is quite understeery in nature. Something Sainz likes. So we know whose preference Binotto has prioritized this year.

    I said that if Romain Grosjean's fire happened on any other lap than the first lap, he'd have been done for with F1's "safety" marshals. Jules Bianchi would've happened in no other racing series. FIA "safety" and the cheap standards they have are incredibly dangerous. There's a reason series like Indycar have a traveling safety crew of specialists.

    How would they have cranes all around Monza, it's in a park. Calling marshals clowns because a car was stuck in gear is rather stupid.

    Watching Charles in the cool down room enrages me to the point of madness.

    I’m beside myself seeing how Binotto has failed Charles. Makes me want to mag dump into the TV.

    Damn straight. You can't build a car that can win tons of races via your star driver, when your star driver has to compete against the needs of his slower teammate.

    Schumacher, Vettel, Hamilton, and Max, all the cars built around them, and it showed.

    Why do you hate Sainz so much? Of all the people you choose to scapegoat a driver lol? All good drivers can adjust. Are you even a ferrari fan or just someone like brembo.

    The team's policy towards leclerc should be the least of our worries.

    Ever heard of a tow truck? Every racing series uses them and seldom ever use big cranes to move a car, even though they bring those, too.

    Go for a lie down.

    Hint, car stuck in gear still does not move with a tow truck, without causing much more damage.

    Most championship winning cars post 1995 are understeery in nature. Being understeery is an indication of having high downforce level and for cars which already have a competitive engine, the best possible car is the one that has the downforce level to match it or else you end up with SF90 2.0.
