Hamilton robbed.

"They" wonder why fans are deserting "their" precious effwun?

We have reached a state now where it is, apparently, impossible to recover a car without effectively halting the race!

Hamiton's loss in Melbourne has nothing to do with faulty software, it has to do with incompetence and mismanagement from the organisers and governing body.

The idea that you now must not only stop for tyres but also cover the fact that a "VSC" could be pulled at the whim of the Clerk of the Course simply defeats the concept of fair competition.

To "need" to bring the race to a reduced speed just to recover one car is absurd and no less.

.....and then the "Safety Car" waves a car by... like "safety" doesn't apply to him? And the track workers at the "danger spot".... they are to expect random racing cars going past out of sequence at a higher speed as their "safety" is, for reasons known to very few, compromised to put on a "good show"?

Laughable to the point of stupidity. If a marshall gets injured or worse by one of these cars what on earth is the defence going to be in court?

The car they should have waved by was Hamilton on Vettel, or Vettel should have been held on the red light at the end of the pit lane.

Martin Brundle breezily announcing, "you are not allowed to gain an advantage under the VSC" was soon proved wrong!

In America, where intelligence and understanding do appear to be at a higher level, they close they pit lane when these events take place.

Come on Liberty, get your act together.

Were we better off with the devil we knew?

Liberty, get this and get it good (as they say in America, I believe).....

Nobody pays a fortune to go and see Stewards Decision Making (always remember THAT!) or official bungling!

There's always gonna be some that gain from a safety car

Why would Mercedes come out with the software story if they simply could blame the safety car

Robbed ? na not buying that. Was very clever from Ferrari, they called it perfectly. There needed to be the safety car from where the Haas was, nothing else they could do they tried to do it under yellows I believe but they needed the crane. Just one of those things, swings and roundabouts.

The no 1 problem with F1 no ifs no buts is the reliance on downforce. Its been the problem for 5/6 years at least now. Cars just cannot follow each other, its so sad. Gone are the days of seeing cars nose to tail. Anywhere within 1.5 secs of the car infront destroys the tyres and brakes and just ruins the racing.

Give them far less downforce especially at the front. Compensate by giving them better tyres and watch the racing improve ten fold. Everyone knows it and its what the fans and drivers desperately want

Hamilton benefited from the VSC in Barcelona last year. Swings and roundabouts
