Well the wind is 10 fold now than during FP1, so we should see Verstappen crash at turn 3 again then??

I don't know. The team should have warned Gasly that Hartley is slow as well.

Also Gasly changing lines really made it even closer, he could have stuck to the inside not swerved back as I think he would have been fine there, Hartley had seen him go to the inside that's why he swerved to go wider, so they both changed direction at the same time which made it worse.

Not defending Hartley as it was 100% his fault he should have been right out of the way, and coming from WEC he should know better than to sit in the middle of the track. But really just one of those things where if this happened in most other series it wouldn't have been anywhere near as close.

Brendon was more apologetic afterwards than just about any F1 driver in the last 68 years, so it wasn't on purpose. Gasly behaved like a right diva afterwards on the radio - he is your team mate that you crashed out in the last round Pierre, but he realised once out of the car that it was just an error from Brendon and he is your team mate, no need for a Perez/Ocon type situation.
I agree that the stewards could have found Hartly entirely blameless, however, it is the job of the stewards to decide to punish Hartly or not, and the Race Director's job to report the incident to the Stewards for investigation.
It is not the Race Director's job to act as judge and jury in real time on an incident, this leads to serious miscarriages of justice and the perception of manipulation.

Wasn't one of Hartley's front tyres already punctured, which would have made it difficult to manoeuvre the car?

It was, but he was very apologetic anyway. Never seen a racing driver say sorry that much.

And lol wind. Good one Max. Next up: the sun was in my eyes.

Perhaps, my point is that this should have gone to the stewards, with all the excuses and conjecture. STR manufactured an incredibly serious incident that should be subject to close scrutiny.

The considered verdict may have found it justifiable and not subject to a penalty or penalties.
The Race Director though should not be allowed to sweep an incident of this magnitude under the carpet with a half cocked decision pulled from his nether regions.

wnut is right, it does kinda highlight a flaw in the system. We have stewards, but they're only allowed an opinion if the race director is of the opinion that they are allowed an opinion.

Initially a clean start but all sorts of bits of carbonfibre flying off, as the cars entered turn 2.

First FCY as Ocon and Raikkonen make contact.

Looks like someone ran into Alonso.
