Yep it seems dodgy but they kind of went down that route when they decided not to penalise Vettel for track limits, the can of worms had already been opened.


They're both terrible decisions for different reasons. One because it's nothing short of corrupt the other because it's a huge safety issue.

Tbf they've been awful everywhere. Gave Bottas a free pass on ignoring yellow flags, ignored drivers deliberately going off track and held F3 drivers to a higher standard than the F1 guys.

Nice to see that Vettel has the integrity to say "sorry guv I made a mistake". Most people would be so embarrassed.

Let's be fair here, the stewards say that from some angles, including one from above, it looks like part of the tyre may have been over the white line.

The backlash since Canada is noticeable, if Bottas' time had been annulled I'm sure Mercedes would have been quickly protesting the validity of Vettel's lap?.

Yeah the Bottas thing as well was very questionable though there are some who claim that he lifted (I don't see how that's the case personally).

He was second quickest through the third sector. That really shouldn't be a big enough lift.

Supposedly there is an "overhead" angle that shows the tire overlapping the line. Unfortunately, a tire's girth through the sidewall is wider than the contact patch on the ground... which was ignored. Had it been a driver in any car other than a Ferrari, it would have not been ignored (IMO).

I wasn't aware there was a camera helicopter hovering over Parabolica for the whole hour... :-((

The was farcical, funny and a little bit dangerous all at once. They should all be embarrassed tbh.

I don't get why Bottas was allowed to keep his time and I really don't get why it wasn't looked at.

I think Vettel was also lucky to keep his time.

I don't know how to transfer the images, Vettel's car was not in contact with the track, however the wheel did overhang the white line.

Fia report on Vettel investigation

https://www.fia.com/file/94207/download/28948

“ Decision: No further action.

The Stewards reviewed video evidence, heard from the driver of car 5 (Sebastian Vettel) and the team representative.
The Stewards reviewed multiple camera angles, some of which appeared to show that the tyres were not in contact with the white line of the track edge however other angles appeared to show that part of the front “wheel” (when viewed from above) may have been within the bounds of the white line. This cast an element of doubt which is considered significant enough to give the “benefit of doubt” to the driver in question.
Competitors are reminded that they have the right to appeal certain decisions of the Stewards, in accordance with Article 15 of the FIA International Sporting Code and Article 9.1.1 of the FIA Judicial and Disciplinary Rules, within the applicable time limits.”

The actual wheel is wider than the tyre contact patch, so they found an angle that obscured the contact patch of the tyre.

Correct.

The onboard angle shows the tyre wall on the line thats all.

Yes, but didn't then also show an angle that shows it stayed on track? I saw one. That being the case, they've see pictures that show he was off track but also stayed on track. Hence benefit of the doubt I guess.

I understand this is unsatisfactory, but that's the current state of play at the moment. F1 invests hugely in wining and dinning billionaires at races but can't spend a few quid on technology to manage races.

True. But if the stewards said 'we can tell you deliberately missed the first chicane by watching the footage', Renault would turn around and say prove it. Surely the FIA would need to prove it using the telemtry? Which they may be able to do, I don't know so I'm asking.

Rosberg and other drivers all knew he done it on purpose let alone the fans, he was driving so slow he should never had a problem going round that chicane. Stewards have been useless today.

So would I. It doesn't paint a good picture for the sport if the better you are supposed to be means the less you get punished for driving stupidly and possible dangerously.

Yes, and to be fair, even as a die-hard Ferrari fan, I too thought he should have the lap removed, but it's completely and utterly true that there is at least one camera angle where it appears the car could still have a fraction of a tyre on the white line. I'd say a decent lawyer would use that to ascertain that it was not 100% proven that he left the track limits, hence the FIA having no choice.

So Sainz and the Hulk blocked the track and prevented the cars from behind posting a lap time and there's no punishment, today the stewards were noticeable by their absence.

I hate to be a downer to this glorious bitchfest, but this was only qualifying. Tomorrow we will have a race and with many cars out of position there will be ample opportunity for them to sort themselves out.

Max will make a charge up the field from the back. Kimi will pass at least a few cars. I plan on watching Lance Stroll advance madly to the rear and get passed by Checo.

Not when there are images that show it not to be true, you shouldn't be able to use an image that's blocked by a part of the car and say well the tyre might have been touching the white line.

Who showed it and to whom did they show it to?

I don't know how to transfer the images, Vettel's car was not in contact with the track, however the wheel did overhang the white line.


Yes, but didn't then also show an angle that shows it stayed on track? I saw one. That being the case, they've see pictures that show he was off track but also stayed on track. Hence benefit of the doubt I guess.

I understand this is unsatisfactory, but that's the current state of play at the moment. F1 invests hugely in wining and dinning billionaires at races but can't spend a few quid on technology to manage races.

The technology (images) are at their disposal, the rules state the car has to be in contact with the track, that's a physical requirement unless the car happens to be airborne I guess?


Yes, and to be fair, even as a die-hard Ferrari fan, I too thought he should have the lap removed, but it's completely and utterly true that there is at least one camera angle where it appears the car could still have a fraction of a tyre on the white line. I'd say a decent lawyer would use that to ascertain that it was not 100% proven that he left the track limits, hence the FIA having no choice.

Not when there are images that show it not to be true, you shouldn't be able to use an image that's blocked by a part of the car and say well the tyre might have been touching the white line.[/quote]


But SKY showed a video of him going through the corner, a view from behind, that appeared to show the front right kept on the white line. It wasn't obscured by anything. It was just one angle. Like I said, I fully expected it to be cancelled, but if one angle shows he was possibly OK, that's all it will take I guess. Not saying I agree, just playing devils advocate.
