    Really though, when will SVG ever learn patience?

    Well, it was a prototypical SVG move. He might be quick and he might be aggressive, but he is the kind of driver who will move over on you going down Conrod Straight.

    If he waited a second or two longer, he would have passed him with no issue. Now it looks like he may have threw an outside chance of winning the race away with what should be an incoming penalty.

    He'll never learn, will he?

    It wouldn't be the first time. He and Scott McLaughlin tripped over one another going through the Cutting a few years ago that saw McLaughlin slide into the wall. While the stewards didn't issue a penalty, van Gisbergen was looking pretty good for the win when he stalled it coming down off the jacks in his final stop and he couldn't get it started again.

    This race couldn't get any more ridiculous.

    I've often thought the Mountain has a long memory. I was just about to hit "post" on my last message - describing the stall in the pits a few years ago - when SVG hit the wall.

    And of course, since it's SVG he's gone and parked it in the middle of the track.

    Can we start calling him Shane van Dickbergen?

    At least in private. I know it might be an AUP issue.

    Well, this is certainly the least exciting finish in this race over the last few years. Not a fan of a single car dominating races.

    Maro Engel just said "all I have seen this weekend is a lot of mistakes from Shane".

    Also, Vilander and Lowndes were very classy when that crash happened.

    Maro Engel, you are such a lad. Love you :lol:

    "It's not motorsport in my book. Um, I've got to be careful about what I say, but yeah. All I have seen this weekend is a lot of mistakes from Shane".

    Reports are the other teams have flocked to the AMG garage since it's so ice cold in there right now. :lol:

    It's even funnier if you remember when SVG did that whole fake retirement thing, he was set to be teammates with Maro Engel at Erebus.
