    The danger of Jeddah is characteristic of street circuits in general. They all have lots of blind corners, hard unforgiving walls or amco barriers and multiple crashes. Until the drivers fully...

    Engine braking is considered braking. The tecpro barrier was not dangerous enough to need replacing. It was shuffled back into position which they could have done under safety car conditions

    Actually, there were lots of great wheel to wheel racing at this race. It had us all at the edge of our seats as all manner of dramas occurred. It was exciting and it would be much better next season...

    I love it actually. It gives the drivers a very different kind of challenge they don't experience anywhere else. It is unforgiving as street tracks usually are. It is super fast, not for the...

    Not necessarily so. The Redbull was just as quick as the Mercedes on a track where most of us thought Mercedes would romp off into the distance leaving Verstappen in their wake. If was not so....

    You are right. There isn't a specific rule on how to give a place when instructed to do so. But that is not the point though. Judging by how very close Hamilton was behind him, slowing on the racing...

    I don't think this one qualifies as a racing incident. That would be introducing another grey area. The problem was Verstappen executed his plan poorly by slowing on the racing line. He was expecting...

    Quite true. It appears Verstappen got the message much earlier. Since Horner had to confirm agreement to give the place up to Masi and subsequently told Verstappen to give the place up, in parallel...

    Quite true. The rules are so badly blurred now, it is unclear what constitutes a punishable offence anymore. We had the repeat of the Sao Paolo defence which caused both drivers to go off track. Last...

    Well, watch the replay. You would hear Horner telling Verstappen to give the place back as Hamilton was closing up to him and literally under his gearbox when Verstappen received the message to give...

    The problem with that approach is, it discourages teams from taking the initiative to give the place back but carry on until told otherwise. The stewards should not have to do that, the teams should...

    I agree with that too. But unfortunately, that was not what happened. Masi negotiated with Redbull and told Mercedes how it was going to be based on the agreement with Redbull. It was not a three-way...

    He probably was penalized because he could have pulled to one side rather than slow on the racing line.

    I just heard Hamilton did not get the message that Verstappen was going to give the place back until after they had collided. I would think Mercedes probably got the message late too.

    You have a point. It would become clear soon. It would be unfair to punish Verstappen if that is the case.

    The problem was the stewards did not inform Mercedes until the crash had occurred. Hamilton was not expecting Verstappen to suddenly slow down with him already in his slipstream

    It is a bit like the Ricciardo and Verstappen crash in Baku, both drivers in the Redbull if you recall.

    I very much doubt that would be the case. Masi and the steward's office seem too friendly with Redbull. It would be brushed aside. They have what they wanted, a Verstappen win to secure the title.

    The point is that he is not for the stewards to give. They should only apply the penalty that applies when they look at the matter. It is not up for negotiation or discussion.
