well yes it's true he had to rejoin the track, but did he need to go right across to the wall? when I re-watch it i don't think so. Karun was going on about his oversteer
but the car wasn't pointing away from the wall in oversteer, it was pointing along the track quite straight, then Seb steered it right, making it point towards the wall
it was instinct obviously and you can understand it, but he had the option imo
I don't think Karun realized at the time, that the oversteer was caused by Vettel pinning the throttle pedal to get back onto the track. Which by itself proves that Vettel was in no danger of hitting the wall on the right. Vettel pretty much was in full control until the self induced oversteer moment. Vettel was more mindful of keeping P1 than hitting the wall.
Anyhow i can't understand why Gasly is behind Verstappen in the standings.
They need to give Kyvatt that seat.
i don't think there even was any oversteer really, and yes he was defending wasn't he. i mean if you stop this at the last frame of Lewis' onboard at 2s, Seb is steering left, not right
Vettel steered right.
Unless you are mixing up your directions. He steered right to counter the oversteer after pinning the throttle. you would have to see in in a video with seb's onboard.
He had oversteer, but it was all his doing.
I believe a few races ago (china?) where Kyvat? crashed into other cars at the start, he was penalized for causing a collision.
He was also correcting oversteer similar to vettel. And also similar to vettel this oversteer did not take them by surprise. They were losing ground to their rivals and desperately lost patience and pinned the throttle hoping to magically be ahead. Vettel did this on grass, on which he knows there will be no traction.
He is ofcourse good enough to countersteer, but this misplaces the car and blocks hamilton. So in all fairness it was unsafe re entry. what he should have done is simply not floor the throttle and things would have worked out better.
Everything was in his control.
