F1 » Button calls for turn two rethink

Last year, the 'gate' was proposed and then removed as it didn't do the job. So, just like with qualifying, they used the trusted FIA plan of "if it doesn't work, try it again because it might work". Six drivers went through the gate - Hamilton, Ricciardo, Alonso, Grosjean, Ericsson and Haryanto - if they had not used the gate, they would have got a penalty/reprimand as LH did the day before. The stupid track design and the FIA race director, who is responsible for the 'gate' are the culprits here. This whole event is a great example of what is wrong with F1. Not only do we have to put up with the vomit-inducing grovelling and toadying but the track is rubbish. But they pay the second highest amount to stage the race so it will continue and prevent a decent event to be staged elsewhere.

F1 » Russian Grand Prix – Race results

arthermo77: Am I the only one to notice how much ground Hamilton made up on the pack when he ran wide to 'AVOID' the carnage ahead?.
Ah, now there's a thought! Should he have been made to give back those places?? Interesting to hear DC's (Channel 4) thoughts on stewards' decisions... he sounded quite irritated by the inconsistancy and seemingly sometimes random handing-down of penalties at races....
Lest we forget... Daniel Ricciardo, Fernando Alonso, Romain Grosjean, Marcus Ericsson and Rio Haryanto also took that route
