    If Hamilton pitted .. Max would have stayed out. Masi could have red flagged the race to clean up. What other "should have", "could have", "would have", scenarios could you see played out? Where is MOSLEY when you need him?

    How could they possibly calculate that? We've had times when the SC has been out for a very short amount of time vs way too long. You absolutely can not calculate that, as it's all based on how fast fast the marshalls clear up the accident. If the call to overtake came at the end of lap 56, something which Mercedes couldn't calculate in with absolute certainty, they'd still be at square one.

    With the SC Delta the entire pit delta loss is around 10 seconds. So yes, they could've pitted.



    As for where Mosley is, he's very dead.

    I genuinely love his argument for calling for an end of the race by any measures as that would hand Lewis the title...without going racing.

    But by having an actual race, it's criminal.

    You have your opinion, but others have theirs.

    Still, you always insist in having the last word.

    You will never convince people who see things differently than you.

    Unless of course the bets for Hamilton to win were insignificant
    So they get some publicity out of it

    Actually, the story about the fixing of the Tripoli GP is now disputed, if not debunked. It´s based almost entirely in the book of Neubauer, who was not present at that race and had some tendency to "embelish" his stories. His description of the race is also wrong.

    There was a well known agreement between Nuvolari, Varzi and, I can´t remember who was the third one, to split the lottery earnings if any of the three won. But they didn´t decide which one of them had to win, and of course the rest of the drivers were out of the agreement.

    I hear Nascar is reaching out to Masi, after seeing his performance last race.
