That in itself is confusing though is it not?

Telling drivers that they can run wide, but then not run wide one sentence after each other.

Again letís not pretend Hamilton was the only one doing this, most drivers did it throughout the race and backed that up in post race interviews.

The 2 bigger questions are...why wasnít max doing it and giving away all that lap time (if it was such an advantage) and why have the FIA muddied the waters so much.

It should be a simple rule, in or out of the white line, consistent throughout the weekend.

Somehow this has become a ĎHamiltoní thing when itís the opposite, people should be looking at the FIA

Well, I only saw the highlights but they were pretty enjoyable. Good battle at the front but RBR dropped the ball really by instructing Max to let Lewis through so quickly. Should have picked a better spot. Great strategy by Merc.

The track limits thing was embarrassing. How can you have a piece of track that has a white line limit in qually but then not in the race - and then change your mind part way through. Just plain stupid.

As to individuals, great race by Norris but I'm surprised Checo's comeback drive has rated so little mention. He did a great job and I believe he will feature considerably more in the rest of the season than any other RBR #2 has in the recent past.

Vettel was truly embarrassing. Nowhere near his teammate, but he did seem to pick up his pace eventually before crashing into Ocon and then blaming Ocon for moving when it was clear that he didn't move at all. He has a mountain to climb....

Wow, that quite some start to the season. What a shame we had the inevitable 'track limits' happen again. Even Toto says it needs better clarification. The late Niki Lauda said if you don't want drivers running off track, just build bigger kerbs. Otherwise let them race. We don't need the stewards and race control meddling all the time. It made the race an anti climax in the end

Still at least Merc have a genuine challenger in RBR this year. For me Max deserved to win that race, I just hope they are able to repeat this form come Imola. Checo once again showed why he is a valuable asset. After a poor qualifying and the problems on the formation lap, his tyre saving skills came into their own in the race. Justifies the decision to replace Albon with him

Nice to see Ferrari looking more competitive, with both Leclerc and Sainz getting decent results and what a drive from Norris too.

Great drive by Yuki in his first race. Shame the highlights didn't seem to show his move on Fred, apparently that was quite good. It's too early to say whether he is the real deal, but he certainly isn't here to make up the numbers. Speaking of Fred, it seems he just can't escape his customary bad luck, despite all his efforts showing his talent is still intact as ever

It seems Vettel's move to a new team hasn't got rid of his inability not only to avoid other cars, but to take the blame when it's clearly his fault. How could he claim Ocon changed line? As DC said in the commentary, those are the words of a deluded man

Anyway look forward to the next race, hope it's another good one, although please FIA let the drivers race!

I can understand Max's thinking. If you try to remain on track and get a small nudge on the back wheel you'll be backwards in a second. We've been there before. How much trust can you put in the other guy leaving you so much room on track that he stays nice and clear of your rear wheel. In practise relying on the guy to leave you room on track often ends up with a nice kiss on your rear wheel.

Driving a tighter arch actually increases the advantage of the guy on the outside because the relative difference in radius and thus speed becomes bigger. Due to the above you often see people choosing the wider option instead to avoid a collision.

Wow I knew he had bad luck, but that is something else. As bizarre a reason for a retirement as Johnny Herbertís at Monza 98

I would say a good statement of facts. My main comment here is that we are now in the realm of having two different tracks. One in which you can run solo and another in which you are allowed to pass. I think allowing this situation to persist will do nothing but to continue to aggravate drivers, teams and fans, create unnecessary drama and lastly puts question marks on race results.

At least they quickly told RBR to give the position back. Swift action & decisions were made and acted upon by the race directors, by RBR and by Verstappen, all of whom should all be applauded.

Afterwards, Verstappen and RBR both seemed to agree that giving the position back was the right thing to do. Which is good, otherwise the argument over whether this was the correct outcome would be never-ending.

The fuzzy & contradicting treatment regarding application about track limits is not something that anyone should be congratulated for.
