    This. There wasn't really the option of "re-joining" the track, because he was beached sideways on it. And when you KNOW your sideways on the tarmac at Monza, you KNOW you don't have a lot of time to get out of the way of a barrage of carbon fibre missiles.

    I don't often stick up for Lance, but I would have been PISSED if I got forced into that potentially lethal position by someone else, then got the same penalty as them.

    Not F1, but such good comedic timing on the crash

    Just a note for those comparing Stroll vs Vettel penalty - for the unsafe rejoin they would have got the same penalty. Vettel's penalty was bigger because they added a penalty for 2nd infringement on top of the first one - that is, Vettel got one penalty for both unsafe rejoining and causing a collision. Meanwhile Stroll got a penalty only for unsafe rejoining.

    ...and now they look like every other Citroen in France - heavily dented.

    I thought they came out of the factory like that.

    That's the urban normalisation service - it's an optional extra.

    It would be very F1 to axe the most exciting part of the weekend.

    Not a surprise about Merc in FE, last year's team was clearly outgunned by BMW and Renault's efforts so now Merc are getting serious.
