    Sounds weird hearing a crowd cheering when you're in the US.

    I actually put my hands on my head and said "Oh my God." I just want to see the cars go around the track for one lap.

    Grosjean ranting.

    There should be a rule limiting the amount of weaving on the main straight as the safety car is coming in.

    In the leagues that I race when we have a safety car we stop weaving in the last sector.

    No, it wasn't. This way Lewis didn't get the long slipstream, like how Lewis did in Brazil last year and lost his place to Max.

    Ninja edit Touring Mars. :lol:

    Bottas was free to do this.

    Bottas deserves black flag.

    Bottas is entitled to accelerate at the last possible moment but the weaving?

    A bit stupid from Bottas, I think he was responsible.

    The top two from last week are out, Sainz was holding his wrist when he walked away.

    This will be the last F1 race here until the S/F line moved.

    Not sure if I'm currently watching a demo-derby or F1 race.

    I'm curious if the FIA will review this tactic drivers are allowed to do by holding up the field until the last second for the best launch.

    Hamilton is blaming the Safety Car for turning the lights off too late...

    -

    @Dennisch Yeh, it does make sense from Bottas - though ironically, he now faces a standing start with him effectively in Pole....

    Given how well the last standing start went, we could see another crash where Max etc. went off.

    Rinse and repeat...

    I think Grosjean's confused; two massive pile-ups and he's still here...

    It’s not Bottas’ fault that drivers behind him decided to go before he did. It’s entirely the fault of the rear ⅓ of the grid who decided to get up to race pace before knowing if the race had actually restarted. The race leader of the SC queue decides when to start going again, not P14. If the backmarkers dragged their feet to open an acceleration gap and then punch it before the line, they have no one to blame but themselves.

    Max won't be amused with his Honda engine. Again.
