Remark of the working day

Sorry, I’m for the ‘natural punishment’, but I never concur in this circumstance.

Operating large where by there is a gravel entice or grass and/or an escape route, if you regulate to get back again on keep track of, you have dropped a ton of time perhaps and rightfully so, but possessing problems suggests you are going to shed a ton of time for just about every and all of the remaining laps of the race. Not certain no matter whether which is proportional to the offence. Moreover there may well be a luck element released there, where by some in some way occur absent unscathed, whilst many others, with the identical offence, maintain large problems.

I know the FIA is just after this unpredictability issue, but I never like that. It must be constant and the identical for everybody. Coventry Climax
