do you bet your life or someone else's that it is still in the catch correctly
and wont come out in a crash.????
Excellent point.

Umai Naa should be qualifying in the top 10 on the gridUmai Naa should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
My understanding was that the left shoulder strap, and left lap strap are tethered to be within close proximity of eachother when released.

Surely you are kidding, a serious breach of FIA safety regulations has occurred.

"Remind people of the regulations"
So from now on whenever a team is found breaching regulations (cheating), we just "remind people of the rules and move on".

So in future, if someone else is caught cheating, a statement is issued reminding everyone of the rules and we all move on.

In other words, the team caught cheating can simply claim "we forgot about that rule", please remind us again and then we all move on ?????

BS big time.

Seems as though the catagory had a tough time enforcing rules that perhaps they were not even clear on.

Surely, it's their job to make sure they were entirely up to date and "clear on" such a vital rule.

don't know if things work differently in Oz but here in UK checking and affirming compliance with Safety Regulations is nothing to do with the circuit or race promoters or championship / series / 'category' organisers - it's entirely the responsibility of the ASN-appointed scrutineers.

Yes, the scrutineers checked all the belts on the Thursday at Sandown.
At the time, none of the belts were attached at more than one point at the time of the inspection.

From what I gather (from a pit crew member) is the belts were having the release box modified / changed on the Saturday night, for use in the
warm-up / race.
