Was Half asleep whilst watching the Gee Pee Qualy last night , so did I see Rosberg set a Purple sector & pole after passing Double waved Yellows ????? If so and the FIA let that go then a poor precedent will be set..
One of the reasons for the FIA not penalising Rosberg was, from my understanding, because the actual corner which caused the yellow to come out for that section of the race track with the crash of Alonso was clear when Rosberg went through it.
Also, there was some concern that the two Red Bulls on the second row of the grid could have been relegated to the rear because they fell outside the 107% of times in Q1 but luckily with how much of a shambles Q1 was that they have deemed it to be "exceptional circumstances" and allowed their times and the positions that they achieved to stand.
I remember Mika Hakkinen getting pole at Monaco after going flat through a yellow. Not "a poor precedent will be set", poor precedents have been set. There's been so much compromises over the last 20 years that no one can be surprised at this particular moment.
