Looks really similar to what ricciardo was penalized for last year in Paul Ricard. I could see why he might seek clarification.
To me it is crystal clear that Stroll needs penalising for that, it was a completely idiotic move, no chance to stay on track. If that overtake is allowed, then track limits do not exist during overtakes anymore :wtf: :wtf: :wtf:
No, Kimi, no. You will not have the drink.

Boy oh boy, these sky sports team really hate Vettel, their intro the the Hungarian GP they show and narrate Lewis Hamilton passes Max Verstappen last year, show Albon side by side with Kvyat, then show footage of Vettel in 2014 on the curb as he enters the straight and spins.

It really is poor Journalism. Such a bias. What did Vettel do to them to justify such rancor?

They are going to have to rethink this commentating in the open air thing. You can't hear anything when the cars are nearby.

For some that might be a bonus with Crofty and DiResta on the mic....

Vettel has proven he’s nothing without a blown diffuser so imo their opinions are justified.
The impossible often has a kind of integrity which the merely improbable lacks.

So every driver is a crybaby as you put it. Ric is spot on with his opinion. Stroll run himself and Ric off the track, instant penalty. And Ric wasn't going to lose 2 positions, he had held Stroll off for a lot of laps. Lance did something crazy to try and pass. With only a few laps to go, maybe Lando would have got them both, who knows.
totally crazy of RIC to not check his mirrors.
then didn't even have the guts to show STR how a door is shut.
penalty is for what? running voluntarily off track to let STR past?
Stroll couldn't even keep his car on the track, it was a failed attempt at an overtake and this is key

I can't think of another incident like this recently where both cars have gone off.

So if it was a failed attemp why should Stroll keep the position, if this is deemed legal they god knows what kind of behaviour they will allow going forward

Apart from DiResta who is a friend of Vettel's and usually stands up for him. Usually whilst also blaming Hamilton for everything as he doesn't like Hamilton at all. :lol:

Red Bull seems to have balance/set-up issues.

Yep, HAM 10-lap old hards. Fuel, tyre and power-mode -adjusted is probably as fast or faster than last year's pole (1:14.58).

Are you going to keep this up for the whole of the season? It's already getting boring and we're only in race 3. :roll:

Its incredible how fast the Mercedes is in every condition. While RB is fighting wit its car, the Mercedes seems to be so easy to drive!
