i really struggled with this race. several things happened which sometimes make for a very compelling races but this time around that was not the case.

tempted to go lower but i'll stick with a 4 to make fields happy!

bit of a side note but the gap which is emerging between the top teams and the rest is too large for my liking.

perhaps a question/thought better asked in a different thread (not that i even think there is a right answer to it) but i would have preferred a full SC and a bunched up field even if it meant taking a few laps more to organize.

Yes it's daft that you can drive faster in a pit stop than you can under the VSC.

FIA should just adopt the WEC FCY system. It has it's flaws but nothing is perfect and it's much much better than this VSC crap.

6. Don't really know if the race was that bad or just the Sky feed we get now.

There was nothing wrong with Sky's feed.

I have an account with Formula1.com and recently got an e-mail saying, if I sign up to the F1 TV Access package I will get 10% off, which translates at £0.86 per race but I hear other Tenthers saying it is really glitchy.

I only saw the highlights (such as they were). A 3 from me - not very much going on really. Grosjean brain fart, Alonso around the outside of Ocon then fade to grey.

FCY is a fixed speed, like the pit lane limiter - I think it's 60kph. VSC requires the driver to hit a specific delta time displayed on the in-car display on the steering wheel, which allows for a bit of variance.

Personally I'd go for the FCY every time when it's my backside over the wall dealing with something trackside. Plus it's pretty impressive watching the cars leap from an identical trundle to racing speed in a split second once the countdown to green ends!

I think the VSC works fine, gives marshals time to clear up an incident without usually compromising the race. Certainly itís easier for the marshals and better for the spectators

i dont want to diminish the marshals' need for safety but i do think there is something to be said for bunching up the field and getting everyone back on the lead lap even if it takes a few extra laps to accomplish.

50sec separating LH and DRic in 5th, with three others 1 lap down, and the rest 2-3 laps down.

this is a perhaps a problem made worse by this particular circuit so i wont attempt to justify a rule change based on this one race but short of meaningful rules changes something else has got to give imo.
