Didn't they bring it in that there was a variety of stewards to prevent favouritism? I think I recall them saying that. Yes if you had a consistent set of stewards the penalties may be more even handed, but if they have people they like and others they don't it would be unfair on those they 'judged more harshly' shall we say.
First, it does not guarantee anything, because of the arguments listed earlier.
And second, am confident, that for permanent stewards in terms of arguments for critics
appeared something type "command preferences".
whenever I hear Pirro's name being mentioned it reminds me of an interview that I saw many years ago on the magazine of the Italian karting federation (Pirro's dad was its chairman, and a board member of CSAI, the Italian equivalent to the BRDC) when rather than talking about his racing, at the time he was doing F3 with Euroracing and finished second in the european championship behind his team mate Oscar Larrauri, he said that he cared a lot about his looks and if he had to go to a party and everybody was going to wear black (it was the early 80s) he would be wearing white, he just wanted to make a point (he also said that his dad didn't help him get Marlboro backing despite not so great results). I know that this has nothing to do with his decision in Canada but whenever I think of him I remember this interview that he gave so many years ago
Well, that is why I think you need a "pool" of professional stewards. Maybe 10-15 with 5 attending each race.
Chinese Baku Spanish GP - 319
Canada - 326
I guess no such thing as bad publicity just wish that we were talking about vettel in Canada 2012. not vettel in Canada 2019
OK, so, instead 3 stewards rendering wrong judgement, now it will be 5 who are wrong. "Pushing off the track" someone should not be judged at all, because
How about this one?
WATCH: Hamilton has similar block to Sebastian Vettel's in 2016 but WITHOUT penalty
I was actually at that race and thoroughly enjoyed it. The evening before, there were all sorts of rumours going around, which continued right up to race time. When all the cars appeared for the parade lap, the fans thought it might be a normal race but we all know what happened next.
Anyway, I remember saying to somebody: one thing about that race is that it will never be forgotten and you will never forget you were there!
Well, it was five stewards at Canada....but you prefer the current system where at each race there is a different set of stewards?
Did you get a refund?
It was a shame to loose that venue though.
No, for reasons stated in past comments, I want to re-write all rules, and take subjective judgements out of the equation. Second guessing driver's intent is a problem IMHO. We have over-regulated series, full of redundancies. Be careful, drive safely...its all useless. These are racing drivers ffs.
Let drivers sort out their problems among themselves during a race. Driver changing his racing line and uses the zig-zagging as a block (Verstappen vs Raikonnen), deserves intervention by stewards. What happened in Canada requires stewards do noting but sit tight and quietly sip their Tim Horton coffee.
IIRC, a full refund plus an option to get tickets at reduced price for following year. Pretty decent, I thought.
Sebastian Vettel: F1 officials to meet on Friday over Canadian GP penalty
Now where can this go? My suspicion is nowhere but maybe Vettel gets first place back? At least, everybody will know before this weekend's proceedings commence.
Well, the only time I was at Indy....they kicked me off the track.
I had a business meeting in Indianapolis of all places....so during some down time, drove over to the track, wandered in, and decided to walk a lap of the track. Got about 3/4rds the way around before they asked me to leave.
Yea, not that impressed with Tim Horton.
Don't say that to a Canadian! Even though the Tim Hortons chain has been owned by foreign investors since 2014, most Canadians think it is theirs.
Yes, I am amazed at the passion they have for a perfectly mediocre donut place.
