    I wish we can get a replay of the Sainz spin in T2 because at some point I got the impression that he was already spinning, or at least understeering, when he hit Stroll.

    And oh dear, Gasly. That was a terrible qualifying yesterday and he topped it off with a weird crash - mostly his mistake IMO, but it's one of these things that happen in the first lap. At the same time, he should know that if you get in the gap between two cars right before a tight corner, that gap is going to disappear and so will your car if you don't back out.
    I don't think he would get a penalty as that would be ridiculous. The start line for all tracks need to be moved closer to start of the straight to avoid this sort of thing. Regulations around this is fine l think and does not need to change.

    Yep, the rookie was the tinder that started this pile up. Even so they all ought to know not to overtake until after the start line.

    Ah. I see. That might be an issue. When does the green light typically come on a SC restart, I thought it is triggered once the safety car pulls off and after the lead car crosses the line. The problem was that Bottas was super slow crossing the line which had a concertina effect in the mid pack which were still slowing and braking and weaving.
    I would tweak the process to ban weaving once the SC car leaves and establish a minimum speed.

    Anthony Davidson makes some good points though so I defer to his opinion

    Verstapenn is out of championship contention at this point l think. Depends on what happens after the restart though.

    Bottas gets penalized by Hamilton

    Terrible restart by Albon.
