Petrov crashed, brought out the red flag, everyone got fresh tires and it was a parade to the finish.



F1 could take a lesson or two from NASCAR, if they had called an audible and forced no tire change 2011 Monaco would have gone down in the history books as one of the most epic races of this era, no matter who won.

But seriously guys, let the judicial process happen.

I wasn't defending either side -- I specifically pointed that out already. My point was merely that it might be a good idea to avoid jumping to conclusions (I mean, even in Canada it's innocent until proven guilty)... And for that I get personal attacks thrown at me

I may be an ass here, but even if Kimi is guilty it sounds like the worst thing he did is drunkenly groped a girl. I'd be surprised if everyone posting about the issue hasn't done something at least as bad at some point in their lives.

They should have let him race, for a few seconds after the restart that was a fun battle to watch and then he got pulled back.

I think if it was earlier in the season the the point spread wasn't as big, they'd let them race a bit more.

Then again, Merc was givin a huge gift with Vettle going off.
Why risk it on a still damp track so close to the finish.

As a fan: I wanna see the go for it.
As a Team: Play it safe.

That was a fun race but I wish we were able to see Vettel and Hamiton battle each other.

Glad I woke up at 3am to watch Quali.

Watching the Ferrari fanboiz bitching about it not being red flagged is funny.

Ricciardo pulls an Alonso: https://www.bbc.com/sport/formula1/45056366

So then... Gasly to RBR? Norris to STR? Sainz to McLaren?

Stoked for SPA, not so much for the CAT 4/5 hurricane that may hit me during the race....

Stupid nature.
