Pointless Safety Car Ruins Race ?
Question: Why was the safety car even deployed then, it was a pointless safety car and its just turn the world championship on its head. Why do the race directors constantly destroy races with stupid decisions ? The car in question was not even affecting the race, the fire was out and it was no where near the racing line, instead they bring in the safety car and when every pitted why was the red light on ? It seems they only put this light on to catch out the drivers no sooner had Lewis hit the back of kimi the red light went out so was tht another stupid pointless decision to have the red light on, when by the time they rejoined they would have quite easily been behind the back cars. What do you think about tht ? Its a slight rant as i am a Lewis Hamilton fan and he had this in the bag if not for that safety car but i do admit it was a silly mistake by him and is his fault....but still that red light should not have been on.

Unnecessary safety car, cracking track, red light kept on too long..... pretty bad show so far. The thing that gets me wound up is the Hamilton haters. straight on here slagging him off and calling him a brat.
Actually I think it's not the safety car that's behind the grid but the Medical Car. the Medical Car is very similar to the safety car except that it contains doctors and medical equipment inside it, and is not used to control the other cars' pace. I think this is so because whenever there was a first lap incident I always saw the safety car exit the pits, rather than overtake the other cars to get to the front. Anyway, the Medical Car does so because it is a common occurrence for there to be accidents on the first lap. If this happens then the Medical Car will get to the accident in no time and will provide first aid to the drivers, should there be the need for it. If this does not happen then the Medical Car returns to the pits after a lap and stays there until (if) it is called. Hope this helps :)
I won't comment on the safety car decision. If Charlie Whiting thought that it should be called for, so be it. Montreal has always been a danger zone in the pit lane. Drivers always have to look out if it's a red light or not esp here. One year Montoya and Massa were penalized for ignoring the red lights. McLaren did not warn Hamilton in time about the red light. Kimi and Kubica saw it and stopped. Hamilton just saw two stationary cars until it was too late. And the red lights are on if the area of that track is in heavy traffic and deemed unsafe for pit lane exits. It was merely a coincidence that the light went green after the collision. I wonder what is rosbif's take on this one
Yep was hoping Truex would win. Was pulling for Mark and Jeff Gordon to have a good finish also, but they both had engines to go bad. Hope they find and fix the problem if there is one.
If someone wrecked into the parked car everyone would be saying why wasn't there a safety car. I guess you can't please everyone by keeping the race safe.
as a driver i cannot give you any advice on that because i think that it is very important for drivers to get randomly tested and if they fail they should no longer be able to have a cdl because if they are under the influence of anything there judgment is not what it should be and 80,000 lbs is not something you want coming at you when a driver has a lapse in judgment
