I doubt Kimi would have gone while the lollipop was still down. Ant Davidson commented on this on the Radio 5Live podcast, it's a high-stress situation and having your forward vision physically obstructed is a simple and effective method for controlling the driver. I don't understand why Ferrari have replaced it.the Ferrari system is actually safer than a lollipop. in addition to a human operator who decides that the driver is released it also requires consent switches from the refuelling rig and the wheel fitters.
I do! I actually think it's the other way round. Qualifying is nothing more than ordering the cars in order of quickness. In principle, if the faster car starts before the slower one, the slower has no chance to win. Now remember the parc fermé rule: qualifying set up is the same as race set up. Add to this that most if not all drivers are able to drive consistently to 98 or 99% of the car's potential. This results in a landscape that unless the car in front has mechanical issues or a crappy race set up or, god bless, put a Senna qualifying lap, you won't overtake. This is even before considering that in F1 the car following is disadvantaged.donskar wrote:Does anyone want to dispute Montezemolo's contention that passing is so difficult at many courses that the pole winner usually wins?
