I think the race-fix was calculated by FIA, RBR and Toro Rosso (which really means FIA and RBR) to allow Daniel Ricciardo to win today's Chinese Grand Prix.

Daniel Ricciardo Lucky Win due to:
+ Toro Rossos orchestrated lap 30 crash resulted in Charlie Whiting deciding to wait....wait....wait a lap or so after Bottas and Vettel passed pit entry before deploying Safety Car giving Christian Horner plenty of time to call in Danny-Rick for medium tyres
+ Not squeezed by Uber-passive-Bottas on lap 45 turn 4 or 5? for easy pass. No way Hamilton would have allowed this to occur as we saw him squeeze Max out on lap 40

Valtteri Bottas Lucky due to:
+ Vettel squeezed Kimi at races start to go P2

Kimi Räikkönen Lucky due to:
+ Karma over Vettel thanks to Max over aggressive pass/crash into Vettel on lap 44

Hi Mach,

I REALLY don't want to imagine that the race was deliberately fixed, but I'll agree that:

1) The safety car was out for an inordinate amount of time
2) The marshals seemed unable to do the slightest amount of clean-up diligently (God forbid if this was a fire)
3) Charlie Whiting waited until EXACTLY the wrong moment to put SC out ... made no sense at all.
4) Lots of betters must've lost big money on this one.

Makes one wonder, as you indicated.

5) Happy Ricciardo won. He's a good man.

Thanks for that 00521. I'd never bet on F1. Too much favoritism.

I'll stick to losing my cash at the local casino Craps table....C'mooooon 7 cheers

I get what Charlie's saying. But the reality of the matter is today's hi-tech cameras are at a tracks every corner sharp enough to determine whose body work lost bits-and-bytes was not available 20 years ago. Charlie doesn't need over 2 minutes to determine whether it's safe to drive into a 2 meter wide narrow gap to avoid puncture risk.

What is Charlie's criteria to determine risk of tyre puncture....and why does it take over 2 minutes to figure out when a camera instantly shows the debris replay after replay after replay?

Exactly. On all points.

To say the least... Charlie's a quarter century old when it comes to new sensor technology.
