    Wouldn't be too hard on Stroll - it was just one of those situations. Magnussen wasn't told by HaaS that Perez was on a fast lap.

    Sounds like pretty much the same situation with Stroll, as Mag.
    "Stroll was on a slow lap, Grosjean on a fast lap. Stroll was changing settings under direction of his engineer and got a very late call about Grosjean overtaking.

    Either way they both drop back 3!

    And , breaching those limits should really be going outside the lines with the outside wheel , not the inside one . That's when they really go outside the track surface .
    They seem to be able to do that in Monaco , with no run-off , so why isn't this the standard everywhere ?
    Or they could move the white line. Might be easier. If the stewards say it's OK to drive there, make it part of the track. Problem solved.

    Or , build walls like in Monaco .
    Harder than painting lines , but it makes for more ad space , so an easy choice .

    And , though they both move back , they also move up the grid , with others getting penalized heavier .
    Stroll moves up one spot and Mag up two from where they qualified .

    I'm glad I'm not the only one irritated with the track limits enforcement as well as the bonehead impeding thing. The track limits solutions are just so easy, but they seem to pick and choose when they are enforced. If there is no advantage just change the lines, but enforce the lines that are there regardless.

    As for the impeding thing, the team should be more involved in warning the drivers, but in both cases the drivers should have known better. That Grosjean/Stroll meeting could have gone very bad quickly.



    Other than that, nothing surprising really in qually. I think I like this track more every year.

    It looks like it was both teams , rather than drivers , that were penalized .
    The drivers get no readout on where others are , so rely on the crew to alert them .
    That Stroll thing was , indeed , scary . He must have had only moments to react to the call as RoGro approached .

    Deserved penalties for Qualifying. Both silly moves by drivers/teams

    Sainz is doing a brilliant job so far this weekend. Not missed a step.

    Hope Vettel gets ahead into turn 1 and gives us a race to remember.
    Its not crashing it's drifting with style
