It's dragging so one last post. I don't like Lotus' twitter explanations at all, Proper response should be:George-Jung wrote:I am not saying that it happend like this, but how about the following:iotar__ wrote: "Romain Grosjean didn't brake test Max Verstappen," said Permane. "He braked five metres later than previous lap. Data accepted by the FIA so the penalty was for Max not RG." You can always count on Permane to embrace weirdest accusation by commenting on them. If you answer it like that you're making it a debatable issue. It should be FIA's job to explain it and take care of Verstappen talking/driving. Of course braking later is not the same as brake testing but who cares about details like that.
-would it be possible for Grosjean to lift the throttle lets say 20m early, and therefor brake 5m later than that he did on the previous lap? For example the normal braking point would be 100m from the apex.. But instead of braking at 100m, Grosjean lifts at 115m from the apex.. and started braking at 95m from the apex.
In this situation everybody is telling the truth.. no?
- for Verstappen's point of view Grosjean did slow down early..compared to previous lap.
- for Grosjean's point of view he did brake 5m later..compared to previous lap.
or something like that The rest is smoke and mirrors."Verstappen's dangerous driving, crashing and getting penalties in not @LotusF1 @RGros issue. Ask @FIA for justification of 5 places penalty or @ToroRosso to explain themselves"
