3 incidents come to mind
Monza - 2000 when after 4 cars went out and a marshall was being attended to , the race was not stopped and controversially ran behind a safety car ( now being Monza with a Ferrari leading you can work out yourselves!)
Schumacher suddenly coming up to the Parabolica decided to brake suddenly to keep his brakes warms - the 4 cars immediately behind all had to suddenly brake unfortunately a certain Jenson Button was too close and had to go on the outside to avoid hitting one car and into the gravel which damaged his rear wing and put him out of the race
Supposedly the rules were changed to outlaw this sudden braking
Austria 2003 when I think Schumacher was behind the safety car and he again on the long straight suddenly brake checked to gap himself which irated Montoya who was gesturing to him to maintain the pace after nearly going into him at relatively low speed
Monaco 2004 - I don't see how it was Montoya's fault when Schumacher was the lead car and decided to warm the brakes out of the tunnel and got on the dust running wide and tried coming back in. Montoya was just staying to the inside line but with nowhere to go hit Schumacher
Actually, I got to watch the C4 feed on a satellite in the villa which got British TV. Fun wasn't it.
Nothing at all.
Toto demonstrated clearly last year that Mercedes decisions will always be made by what most benefits the team not the driver.
Bottas had a guaranteed third and possible second. Baking Vettel into Lewis would have said goodbye to second, jepordised third and had no guarantee of getting Hamilton safely past Vettel. Toto's answer was a no brainer.
racecub but don't you find it a little disappointing that he even asked the question? The Merc was, without doubt, the class of the field in Baku and, given the pole lap Hamilton put in, even faster when he was driving it, but he couldn't find the speed to challenge Vettel after the head restraint incident. He shouldn't have needed help and I don't think should have even asked it.
At least his disappointment didn't manifest itself in ramming a competitor.
racecub. There's no point unless someone is going to eat him and I think that is unlikely, if you back me into a corner I will still refuse.
! You had me confused for a second there.... I see what I did. Fair cop! I blame the iPad, anything but me! However, expect more similar
