Lewis Hamilton changing his name to include mother's surname Larbalestier, hopes to race with it

Lewis Hamilton says he wants his mother's maiden name Larbalestier to "continue on with the Hamilton name"; Hamilton, 37, doesn't expect name change for this season but wants it "soon"

How would it look like in TV coverage? "Hamilton" is already a long surname... :roll:

FIA changes F1 rule on lapped cars overtaking Safety Car after Abu Dhabi row

https://www.racefans.net/2022/03/15/fia ... dhabi-row/

Edit*

Newly published 2022 Formula 1 Sporting Regulations 15 MARCH 2022 Issue 5

55.13 If the clerk of the course considers it safe to do so, and the message “LAPPED CARS MAY NOW OVERTAKE” has been sent to all Competitors using the official messaging system, all cars that have been lapped by the leader will be required to pass the cars on the lead lap and the safety car.
This will only apply to cars that were lapped at the time they crossed the Line at the end of the lap during which they crossed the first Safety Car line for the second time after the safety car was deployed.
Having overtaken the cars on the lead lap and the safety car these cars should then proceed around the track at an appropriate speed, without overtaking, and make every effort to take up position at the back of the line of cars behind the safety car. Whilst they are overtaking, and in order to ensure this may be carried out safely, the cars on the lead lap must always stay on the racing line unless deviating from it is unavoidable.
Unless the clerk of the course considers the presence of the safety car is still necessary, once the message “LAPPED CARS MAY NOW OVERTAKE” has been sent to all Competitors using the official messaging system, the safety car will return to the pits at the end of the following lap.
55.14 When the clerk of the course decides it is safe to call in the safety car the message “SAFETY CAR IN THIS LAP” will be sent to all Competitors using the official messaging system and the car’s orange lights will be extinguished. This will be the signal to the Competitors and drivers that it will be entering the pit lane at the end of that lap.


At this point the first car in line behind the safety car may dictate the pace and, if necessary, fall more than ten (10) car lengths behind it.
In order to avoid the likelihood of accidents before the safety car returns to the pits, from the point at which the lights on the car are turned out drivers must proceed at a pace which involves no erratic acceleration or braking nor any other manoeuvre which is likely to endanger other drivers or impede the restart.
As the safety car is approaching the pit entry the SC boards will be withdrawn and, other than on the last lap of the sprint session or the race, as the leader approaches the Line the yellow flags will be withdrawn and a green flag and/or green light panel will be displayed at the Line.
Who wants to break these down in relation to Masi's decisions the last time he controlled the Safety car?

Oh MEEEeee :)

It's still IF xxx THEN lapped cars overtake, that's independent of the SC coming in, except that IF they do unlap then the SC has to come in at the end of the FOLLOWING lap.

"Any car" obviously means if it's a car then it applies, so "All cars" is just saying the same thing.

So Masi's initial call was perfect: he was making sure the season could end under green, by not unlapping and hence saving that extra lap of SC.

Then 3-4 mysterious minutes later he changed it, and the only difference was having no cars between Max and Lewis and causing a huge crisis. And in doing that he broke the rule about "Any cars" and also the rule about the extra lap of SC.

So Masi brought the sky down on his own head, for a difference he probably didn't care that much about. His motive is a complete mystery isn't it, until you think about the value of Max WDC to F1 :idea:

Oh also, the stewards were basically in on it weren't they. And they've got off scott free, unless Friday is a huge surprise.
