F1 Fanatic - Fabiana
@waynerw I’ll be at Grandstand F a well. If you want, send me a message or a tweet @fabianakawazoe
Anyone else going? I’ll be on sector F.
@enigma The team-by-team thing was just to make things easier to understand, but if you don’t want it like that, here is my input:
Vettel, Webber, Alonso, Massa, Button, Perez, Hamilton, Rosberg, Räikkönen, Kovalainen, Hulkenberg, Gutierrez, Di Resta, Bianchi, Senna, Bottas, Ricciardo, Vergne, Van der Garde, Pic, Glock and Petrov.
For me, it should be:
Red Bull – Vettel, Webber
Ferrari – Alonso, Massa
McLaren – Button, Perez
Mercedes – Hamilton, Rosberg
Lotus – Räikkönen, Kovalainen
Sauber – Hulkenberg, Gutierrez
Force India – Di Resta, Bianchi
Williams – Senna, Bottas
Torro Rosso – Ricciardo, Vergne
Caterham – Van der Garde, Pic
Marussia – Glock, Petrov
One thing that I wanted to know, does anyone have the rest of the onboard video that the person used to create the part with Vettel and Vergne? Because on the F1 Timing app, it shows Vettel giving the position back to Vergne a bit after the “Curva do Lago” (after where the video stops) and then taking the position back in “Laranjinha”.
Since I couldn’t find any good enough videos about this whole incident with Vettel and Vergne, I decided to follow the lap through the F1 Timing app for iPhone.
You can see that Seb and Vergne are on the edge of the end of the yellow sector.
So Seb can claim he was going to overtake after the yellow sector, but Vergne slowed down and if he slowed down as well he would cause a collision.
I couldn’t get it on pic, because it happens very quickly, but after that you can see the VER dot on top of the VET dot in that purple bit and then this:
So that could have been an illegal pass. However, if you continue to watch the app you can see this:
So it looks like Seb gave the position back to Vergne and then a bit further down took it again. So, even if it was illegal, he gave the position back. I don’t see why FIA would still punish him after that.
Definitely Vettel on Rosberg. That move was amazing and proved that he CAN drive.
