I'm guessing Dan's nickname isn't "Lucky"

Ok unsafe releases are as their name suggests unsafe but getting penalised during the race and for the next race is harsh. You wouldn't get that if you intentionally drove into someone!

How can one be penalised twice, separatly, by the same race-steward for the same thing? Although unsafe, he did not enter a 'hot' track, nor did he enter the fast lane, did he? Extremely harsh in my opinion.

It's ridiculous, the team obviously thought it was on correctly...they wouldn't sacrifice a probable 3rd and 4th place finish.

We're human. We make mistakes. Here the punishment far outweighs the 'crime'.

In this kind of incidence when it's very much a team error and no fault of the driver wouldn't a 10 point penalty for the team in the constructors championship be fairer? rather than penalise the driver, twice.

ProfessorX: he should have just continued out the pits and parked it.

if Red Bull gives you wings, the FIA gives you lead boots.


No they would have disqualified him if he did that... Probably strip him of his Super Lisense too haha
