You really need to watch what happened before discussing it. You're just making yourself look even more stupid. Rosberg didn't START the race in the wrong mode, he selected the wrong mode after the start.

Anyway, Rosberg's mistake in selecting the wrong engine mode simply produced the passing opportunity. His fault lies in having seen which side Hamilton was going to pass on, and then swerving right across the track to the edge, forcing Hamilton off.


If overlap doesn't matter, then according to you it would be fine for a driver to simply turn into the side of a car that is next to them, right? Well yeah I guess according to you it is, because that's what you're saying.

Which Ricciardo move was fine? The one against Vettel was OK, but he messed it up, outbraked himself and ran wide forcing Vettel off. It also was unsuccessful. Luckily Vettel saw him coming and made room, or they both might have DNF'ed.

The one at Monaco was IMO not a real attempt to pass. There simply wasn't enough room. Trying to go round the outside on the exit from a corner is unlikely to be successful, especially on such a tight, narrow track. I think he was really trying to suggest to the stewards that Hamilton should have been penalised for cutting the chicane.

He had a case, but plenty of drivers have cut it worse and not been penalised.

How hard is it for you to understand?

The point of racing is to be at the front.

The point of racing is to drive the fastest race you can, regardless of position.

The lead car has right of way. All THE TIME.

The lead car can defend their position.

The lead car cannot though consciously impede the trailing car.

It is the sole responsibility of the trailing car to get ahead of the lead car.

The trailing car cannot consciously impede the lead car.

It's not that hard.





Edit: Forget about the Ricciardo move. Looking at it again. I was wrong there.
