To penalize ANYONE for that action would be ludicrous, especially as there was actually "confusion". Even if there wasn't "confusion", so what? It affected no one.
Every one of those race teams is breaking the rules in one form or another. It's just not that apparent to you.

because they gave kimi a 5 second penalty for doing the same thing in 2016. And if they had done the same for Louise, he wouldn't have won the race.

regarding the "confusion" - it was his own team that caused the confusion, not the officials, so how does he get a pass when he's part of the team, and the team was the cause? lol I don't get it. "sorry your team sucks louise, we'll give you a pass on this one, what a bunch of bone heads they are"

Rules are rules, not guidelines, or why have them at all?

the "everyone is doing it' excuse...

He wouldn't have won if:
1) Team orders hadn't told Bottas to back off, because Bottas was just as fast or faster than Louise
2) The rules had been applied fairly
3) Vettel hadn't tried to drive into the stands lol

at least they decided no penalty on race day (3 hours after the fact), instead of napcar's tuesday penalty announcements.

At one point in the race all 5 available tyres were being used by the remaining 18 cars on track.

On a side note, the NASCAR race in Louden NH has so be the most boring race that I've ever seen, and there is still 100 laps to go. Ugh.

What do you mean boring? All the cars are the same. All the drivers are the same.



At least with F1, a 19k rev line engine is great to hear.

Let's beat a dead horse.

There have been really good NASCAR and F-1 races this year, and there have been really boring NASCAR and F-1 races this year.
Same as Tennis, Football, soccer is boring as fk, and baseball.

What's your ideal sport?
Roller Derby ?

Turtle racing. It's all in. A race to the death even.

Truth, I'll watch all sports but CFB will get my attention every time. Even golf is great to watch. To do what those folks do is amazing. Evidently, Tiger keeps trying but for him to be back like he was is well behind him. He definitely was fun to watch in his prime.

Why Louise deserved a more harsh penalty:
