I'm frustrated with the track penalty for Max!
I agree that track limits should be enforced which is not happening.
All through the race track limits were being exceeded without penalty then a grandstand finish by Max gets penalised.
The stewards are need to decide if they are going to enforce track limits or not and be consistent in doing so.
Not long back from the track and what a race. Lots of action at turn 12 and the stadium section so really pleased with our view.
As Red Bull fans a bit of a rollercoaster. Daniel was looking good until his engine failure and we were gutted. Max made up for it a little with a barnstorming drive. So happy when we thought he'd made the podium only to be robbed and I couldn't agree more with you Andy. Consistency is vital. Max entertained the fans and whilst that shouldn't be at the expense of the rules, the lack of consistency penalised him horribly for an awesome last lap move. The powers that be should not lose sight of the fact that they are in the entertainment industry!
Highlights for us
- the Michael Buffet driver intros. Loved it
- Vettels first corner overtake
- Max's storming drive and last lap overtake (even thought he got penalised)
- Carlos Sainz debut Renault performance
- race stewards for lack of consistency.(How awkward was that in the driver room post-race!)
- Alonso having to retire.
Fabulous track here in Austin and we will definitely return.
