Thanks for the correction.

And yes, even when SRO get it right, they get it badly wrong. The #563 should have been pulled up on going over pit exit, but that was because Engel was shoving Muller all the way from the last corner. Costa's tap was tiny and inconsequential in comparison.

It's probably confirmation bias, but Engel does seem to get away with nudges and bumps more than any driver I can think of.

Haven and Beckett as part of the commentary team. That's a good team.

He managed to be sexist whilst getting the original saying wrong anyway. He's a buffoon who needs to retire.

SRO literally making this up as they go along. It's now a penalty for overtaking outside of track limits.

All fine, it was clear that the #4 Mercedes had all 4 wheels on the track when cutting the chicane...

Ouch... this is going to get messy

Official SRO Correction - We didn't get it wrong, you errrr, actually, ran off the track (yeah that's it), we don't care why, Maro Engel is our home boy, shut up and take the penalty.

Sorry Alain, you can make keep making up excuses for why you penalized #563, if you let the #4 get away with this, then you still missed up.
But that's difficult to admit, isn't it ?


SRO messing up once more

Nobody told the drivers we weren't going green, the SC lights were still out, so then everyone slams on the brakes coming up to the line.

Alain Adam is making an absolute arse of this race.

I've kinda gone off Blancpain. This is why.

Outrageous: #563 overtakes the favoured car.

What can we think of to have it hand back its position?


Another 2 cars in the gravel, another FCY, another SC
This is an excellent and typical Blancpain race.

We need a FCY and therefore a SC to allow the Mercedes to fight back.

Luckily, we have just that.
