Yet they waited a lot of time before going to VSC. Right until the time Hamilton was approaching the pit entry.
Is this the same race director that penalised Hamilton only recently for safety car issue and practice start infractions? Or is it only a conspiracy when you think it helps Hamilton?
Somehow SCs are always to the gain of Hamilton.
As for obviously breaking a rule, of they're gonna punish anyone, other teams would go to court.
That's not true. Most of them earlier in the season tended to constantly erase big leads he had built over the field and gave everyone else huge second chances to get at him and give 'exciting' finishes to races. Off the top of my head combined with other things a couple of safety cars have cost him positions and points.
I happen to think they were very trigger happy with full SC early in the season for the reason of artificially bunching up the field.
The VSC in Imola was well timed for him but the full SC was definitely not as he'd just gone past the pit lane and he caught it up. I think he only narrowly avoided the choice of either not pitting which would be a huge disadvantage, or pitting but losing positions.
It's a coin flip. He lucked out in Imola, but luck is all it was.
