Sainz 'angle of attack' was much sharper than the likes of Danny Ric. Danny and others had run off much wider than Sainz, giving them a much straighter path through the cones whereas Sainz was much further to the right, thus having the effect of sharpening the pathway to rejoining.

Clearly a lapse of concentration / misjudgement on his part. Maybe during practice he had ventured through the run off on the shallower angles and did not realise the effect that the approach from further to the right had.

LH stepping back (at least a little bit) from his comments on Sunday

The usual thing after a few days.

Fair enough. Seems to have recognised he has spoken out of turn. We have all been there, me on most days.

Let's just see how mainstream social media has reacted to this apol... ah, err.

The words 'rip' and 'shreds' probably come in the description of what social media are doing..... Of course, hypocrisy doesn't exist within social media, does it.....

We can all get a bit hot under the collar when things happen we don't like.

What adults tend to he able to do though is have at least an inkling of when to keep it zipped. Especially ones in a very fortunate position..

I'm not saying celebrities or those in the public eye have that level of self awareness though!

Most racing drivers don't tend to have that ability straight out of the car! An apology does indicate a bit of self awareness.

Sportsmen are just weird really. Take Vettel for instance, who seems to be very nice and probably the most balanced adult on the grid yet when the pressure is on he is very strange at times. Have we ever heard him back down from his borderline insane behaviour at Baku in 2017 for example?

They are all just oddballs.

I wss on the receiving end of such a meltdown in a Snetterton paddock many moons ago!

Trying to remember what the question was to the hilariously sulky answer I received!!

However Ham had been on the podium and done a bit more post race mucking abaat before he uttered the infamous comment so he'd had time to consider a few things I reckon..

At last year's Walter Hayes Trophy meeting at Silverstone I had to remind three very angry drivers (who decided to have a go at each other and then anyone else in the vicinity) that we were still dealing with their incident, so if they could save the arguments until we were all out of the gravel and back behind the wall I'd appreciate it...

And then that got topped by this! "Let's just stand here and talk about it, shall we?"

19) Practice starts
19.1 Practice starts may only be carried out on the right-hand side after the pit exit lights and, for the avoidance of doubt, this includes any time the pit exit is open for the race. Drivers must leave adequate room on their left for another driver to pass.


19.2 For reasons of safety and sporting equity, cars may not stop in the fast lane at any time the pit exit
is open without a justifiable reason (a practice start is not considered a justifiable reason).

It doesn't specifically say you must leave the track and only that you have to move to the right hand side.

It seems like Massi has not been specific enough in the notes, unlike the notes for the previous round. Ron Meadows is an expert in reading the regulations to see what is not said.
If you look at the track on google maps the only place after the pit lights on the right hand side that is not in the fast lane is at the immediate end of the pit complex. Everything after that is the fast lane.
