I'm not excusing it, I agree, but it was clearly a panic reaction from the race director, rather than announcing both at the same time. Masi is out of his depth, the recent statistics around red flags, penalties, etc. show that.
I can't remember a red flag that wasn't right? of moments when it was time to red flag and there wasn't?
and which penalty did Masi give? Isn't that up to the stewards of the meeting?
Do you even know what part of this traveling circuit he is responsible? Or are you just searching for someone to blame?
So far he's and his team been consistent with red flags, safety cars and VSC.
Consistently not using the VSC you mean?
Where would a VSC have helped?
With a VSC there would have been the same and correct closure of the pit lane. Hamilton would have still entered the pits and the Ham fans would still be crying for this precious loss.And I am convinced that pushing the car next to the main straight is still the point where one should not race but have a real SC looking at the thread for the Marshalls.
For me it is anyways the other way round: If FIA would like to screw the Mercs, they would send the Safety Car quick out of the pits. In all recent races they waited half a lap. Like this no one was caught behind the SC.
Example this week...when Ham crossed the pits he was given a free stop, they could have changed the whole car in this time as the SC was send out after Ham and before Bot...
This is a bit of nonsense...we have the stupidity that cars can not follow. So during a SC restart the leader just waited for the SC to disappear and then full speed for 1/4 of the track.This is in my point of view a bit strange SC behavior. Every other racing series manages to do something Bottas did last weekend: Wait for the Start/Finish and push the throttle. No idea why F1 drivers are not capable of this.
