F1 » No action taken over runaway Marussia

Hilly nature of the Nurburgring seen as the main culprit after Jules Bianchi did all he could to secure his flaming MR02 at the German Grand Prix.

So Red Bull and Force India get fined for issues in the pit but a Marrusia reverses across the track in front of other cars and no action taken...................... How is that fair.

The car HAS to be left in neutral so that it can be removed. Bianci ran fom a flaming car, once it had stopped he returned to the car in put the steering wheel back on to avoid a fine.

When he left the marshalls were in attendance, unless he had climbed back into the back and pressed the brake what could he have done?

He could not slip it into gear, and if he could have done this would have then got him a fine for leaving it in gear. The Marshal who was present should have stayed rather than wander off.

FIA amendment to technical rule 12.4.5b All cars must now be fitted with a proper handbrake as of the next Grand Prix. (None of this silly foot operated nonsense Mercedes).
