Ironic

Head of Pirelli Mario ISOLA, happens to have a poster/art of Max Pace on display in his office. Empathy for the grunts working overnights to ensure it doesn’t happened again. I’m sure the boss does not want his tires to be the cause for points loss for Max Pace.

He said Lewis and Vettel had similar cuts on the left rear tire.

Where are the times that the Mercs ( Ham1 & Bot2 ) both idiots just pushed the rest out of sight !
I mean in every single race ...The race was actually already over after 6-7 laps , because both Mercs pulled a gap of 30 or 45 sec !
They even lapped the rest of the field !
Cruising in warp-speed to the next (Merc) victory !
Of course ...That was just fine for the Merc fanboys !

Such a BS !!! Give me a F* break !
If you look at it in the cold light of day my friend you wonder if the tyres are stamped MO

This race was freaking hilarious. I caught the pre race show for the first time and at the end I noticed these idiot drivers are kneeling in their pre-determined little box inside of a ridiculous banner on pit lane(?). I thought these losers stopped doing this this season.

At the end of the race, seeing #44, I thought i was watching a race from 2008. LMAO What an idiot. Max gave this dude a gift and he throws it away. Last I saw he was blaming it on some equipment or steering wheel adjustment. Okay...

I saw my last race. Not gonna give these morons any ratings. Especially what I saw at the start and at the end. You can't watch any sports anymore, except for pro wrestling.

^ I couldn't believe what I saw also, hammy was given the INSIDE line to the bend outaccelerating Sergio then flicking a brake switch by mistake and locking up off the road.
Too many gizmos in F1 and some are just downright out of order.

If that's the case with cuts then it's Masi's fault for not ensuring it's safe to continue with the carbon shards completely cleared from the accident area with a suitable vacuum brush buggy and not hurriedly swept with brooms.

Exactly, sure seems like a driver safety issue for the FIA to correct. Earlier this year Kimi ran into the back of GIO while screwing around with steering wheel switches. It's like texting and driving only worse.

Agreed, it should be standard equipment for road circuits.

Doesnít Masi inspect the track before the race to check if there are road defects or sloppy patches/expansion joints.

I found an elevated patch between T12 and T13, itís on the racing line and cross over point for the rear left tire. This could be a possibility, especially at speed.

A few pics under green flag and SC(hammy).

I think answer is, yes, but not well enough. Last year we had issues at two tracks. The manhole cover at one and the drainage grates at another.

That's quite a bump there that would lift a corner and slow a car momentarily but unlikely to cause a cut or sudden deflation.

Unfortunately still pictures aren’t the best, it’s more like a raised cliff edge than a bump. The car was traveling at 240-260 km/h near this area, then 4 turns until the flat out straight at 320+

Out of the top ten, about half typically drove their RL over the cliff (Vettel, hammy, Max, leclerc) and the other half straddled the area (perez, Lando, gasly, sainz)

That was the red light at the end of the put straight. It was pretty awesome when Kimi put his arm around Lewis and pointed at the traffic light! Classic Kimi!
