Are they investigating Vettel - who did the same in an earlier run - as well?

Yeah there 10 cars out there & none of them wanted to take the initiative & lead the pack. The all stuffed around.

By the time they realised they had to pull their finger out & get serious, for 8 of the 10 it was too late.

All depends on how much Derek Warwick values his family jewels.

Exactly, there's no need to penalise anybody except for maybe hulk the punishment is they all ruined their own chance at pole/improving and look like complete and utter spoons

Vettel locked up his wheels under braking. Perhaps it could be argued that he did it deliberately, but how would you prove it?

What on earth was that!? I honestly blame Hulkenberg. He was the first man out and then he just chose to take the runoff at turn 1. That's what started this whole thing. After that, Stroll was in the lead and he didn't want to go because he probably thought that what Hulk did was BS and that it wasn't fair. Then no one wanted to go. It was just ridiculous. Dumbest thing I've seen in F1 in years.

Hulk doesn't get a penalty!
https://www.racefans.net/2019/09/07/no-penalty-for-hulkenberg-for-cutting-turn-one-in-qualifying/

'The stewards report read: "In this case we are unable to determine that the driver deliberately left the track."'

And why haven't they deleted Vettel's time? He clearly had all 4 wheels off at the parabolica. They made a point of informing everyone that if you did that; not only would your lap be invalidated but the next lap would be invalidated too. Why have they let his time stand?

I'm not sure why they are calling him to the stewards. :? There is no need for any clarification. Just look at the tape and confirm that he was indeed off the circuit. This is such a joke IMO.

Agreed. I imagine they are calling VET (and presumably someone from the team) to the stewards so they can get everyone's story straight. You know, how an Italian race organizer can't timely enforce its admonition (to all teams) when it involves an Italian team in front of an Italian crowd at an Italian race. I can't wait to hear the excuse.

Today's Q3 debacle is the worst I've seen since the worthless 6-car start at Indianapolis in 2005.

from one of the replays, i thought his front right wheel was still touching the line.

If the replay confirms that he was still on the circuit then the lap should stand. Either way there is no need for a conversation.

Toni Gruner tweeted this about Bottas:

"We asked the FIA about that. According to them it's not the red flags but the time the teams are informed about the red flags that counts. And that information came shortly after Bottas crossed the line. https://twitter.com/filippghost/status/ ... 3099507712"

My wife, who doesn't follow F1 and couldn't tell a Ferrari from a Trabant, watched the replay a couple times as I did. Even she understood, commenting "Yea, he's on the other side of the white line for sure. You can see the dark track between the front wheel and his tire."

I do wonder why Bottas said he lifted as he crossed the line then. it seems he was aware he needed to back off just before.

The same person tweeted "Mercedes data shows: Bottas lifted and lost 2 tenths in Parabolica after Raikkonen went off right ahead of him on the first Q3 run. Without that incident he would have set a time quicker than Leclerc. "

Theres also a picture showing the red light/flag was there before Bottas passed the line. I just cant believe the red flag only counts when the teams are told, that is ridiculous. Like it says Bottas only knew about the red flags after the line.

I'm not sure if I'm buying this story about lifting. I just re-watched it and it certainly doesn't look like he backed off. I may be wrong though.

Apparently Bottas did a purple mini sector through Parabolica so I dont have a clue.

It's an absolute scandal that they are letting Bottas go unpenalised and reopens the can of worms they closed after Hungary 2016.

It was Leclerc he got to the front and then in his wisdom decided to slow down again, that was the final death knell for the drivers getting their last laps in, also Vettel clearly went off the track.

That's Derek Warwick for you plus he managed to find just the one camera angle, the one above the car, to say there was reasonable doubt that Vettel didn't leave the track despite others showing that he did, you only need the one to show he left the track.

So every camera angle shows vettel off the track and 1 at an obscure angle makes the other clear views wrong :thumbdown:

It's an absolute scandal that they are letting Bottas go unpenalised and reopens the can of worms they closed after Hungary 2016.

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.

'The stewards report read: "In this case we are unable to determine that the driver deliberately left the track."'

That's Derek Warwick for you plus he managed to find just the one camera angle, the one above the car, to say there was reasonable doubt that Vettel didn't leave the track despite others showing that he did, you only need the one to show he left the track.


So every camera angle shows vettel off the track and 1 at an obscure angle makes the other clear views wrong :thumbdown:

In a nutshell.

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.

What’s frustrating is on a day where the FIA needed to be consistent with rule enforcement they weren’t at all.
