Verstappen illegal moves (again)

Post by 00521 on Mon Oct 10, 2016 8:54 pm

Interesting loophole.

Per, the last lap of Japanese GP @ Suzuka 2016


27.7 Any driver defending his position on a straight, and before any braking area, may use the full width of the track during his first move, provided no significant portion of the car attempting to pass is alongside his. Whilst defending in this way the driver may not leave the track without justifiable reason.

Anyone care to comment?


(braking zone = defined as 100 - 200 meters before corner)





Cordial Best,

I think it was hard but just about fair and what anyone would have done, including Lewis..

I think Lewis knew this was very likely to happen and was quite prepared to take to the
escape road...  whilst never giving up on a higher finish I think Lewis was more than happy
to recover to third given his appalling start..

Hi Zag!

Absolutely.

No question knowing how difficult Verstappen is, Hamilton moved carefully and it worked out.

No Prost / Senna this year! ;-)

His movies on Raikkonen should have been penalties. This one wasn't so clear. Late, but just before the breaking zone. Then again I've only watched it once and was only half watching at that lol.

Hi 00521,

Prost v Senna..?  Hmmmm..    Well, Nico has nothing to lose, Lewis everything, so if it is from any side
we know who it will be.
Given his questionable defending I think maybe Nico could get away with it as it
will look like his usual MO, but if (IF) he is only one spot behind Lewis I don't think
he will try anything dodgy, he doesn't need too...

Anyway, Lewis's engine, gearbox, brakes (add any part..) will fail....  (they both had the same
problem Toto will say but Nico's will luckily last the whole race...............)

I'd prefer Nico to win WDC, just to get someone else have it, but who knows, Lewis might still win.
