    They are trying to argue semantics.

    The rule book says "Any lapped cars" and they are arguing that "any" doesn't mean "all"
    NOTE: The location of this post has been moved and the thread title (which was previously Wenger is Leaving) has been manipulated by a notorious pro-Wenger moderator. What was previously a message that contained no profanity and made a comment on a real life event has now been manipulated by a deliberately provocative title. An old and crude propaganda and censorship technique.

    I was a lone voice explaining how shit F1 has become, for the same reasons the PL has become shit. One of the biggest problems has been the inconsistency in an overbearing set of rules that shouldn't exist in the first place. It's odd, nobody has moaned about those inconsistencies until now. But I'm all for going back and applying consistency across the board. Doubt Mercedes would be.

    The rule book also says the race director has the final say. that kinda trumps everything I`d wager

    I guess it does.
    But what's the bloody point of a sport where the "referee" can basically change the outcome so blatantly.
    As I've said, I don't follow the sport. Maybe this sort of thing happens all the time. But it's a pretty stupid sport if so.

    Although Masi in that article states it does mean all lapped cars. I suspect if Mercedes’ do go down the court route, they will use that as precedent etc.


    But the other issue is, if the race director gets to decide how to do it, why is it fair to effectively penalise 3 & 4th places who cant race as lapped cars not waved through? What happens if 4th place needed to finish 3rd for constructors championship points which equals prize money. masi effectively decided they cant race but only the front two can. That’s not sport and thats not the rules
