Hawkwood should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid

It sounded like a mountain was being made out of a molehill with regards to VdG pushing so hard in his stint, but the central point from Jones/Goodwin was understandable - that there were a couple of moments when Giedo put the comfortably leading #38 in a more dangerous position than it needed to be in his quest to set the overall fastest lap. But the comparison they made to the argy-bargy at the end of last year's race did not hold for me. In that case Lancaster needed a stern talking to at the very least, whereas a quick word with Van der Garde would suffice.
Yeah I was at the race, though I'll be honest I haven't heard any of the post-race podcasts or anything. I'm not surprised it was a topic of conversation though, it was a bit unnecessary.
Having said that, VDG is a quality driver, easily capable of holding it together.
But yes, Dolan may want to have a quiet word

Has there been any word on what caused both cars to retire on the spot?

That TDS off was very unusual and the car certainly looked recoverable to my untrained eye. Gommendy stopping trackside without any visible damage was inexplicable as well.

The TDS was a throttle issue, stuck open, jammed or something of the sort.
The Eurasia car lost power because debris hit the marshal switch which is located on the base of the windshield of these cars, very unlucky!
