Hamilton under investigation

Quote:
The FIA is looking into Lewis Hamilton’s actions on his in-lap after securing pole in qualifying in Montreal.

Hamilton was told by the team to stop on the circuit because he was so marginal on fuel that he was in risk of not having enough left for the FIA sample at the end of the session. The car must have at least 0.5kg in the tank for scrutineering purposes.

He stopped on the straight before the pits and after coasting for a while, got out and pushed, before being picked up by the medical car and given a lift home.

The question mark is over the fact that drivers are given a lap time within which they have to return to the pits during qualifying, a legacy of the fuel saving days of several seasons ago.

One chief engineer from a rival team told me: “It’s definitely illegal, they took advantage by cheating. Otherwise next time we’ll all put one less lap in the cars.”

While clearly there has to be some provision for drivers suffering a genuine mechanical problem after setting a time, it would seem that McLaren has some explaining to do…

I'm a massive McLaren fan but I can't see how he was allowed to keep his pole. McLaren sent him out there without enough fuel to get back to the pits, and although that wasn't the plan when he left the garage, it undoubtedly gave him an advantage on his flying lap. If everyone did that, it'd be chaos. A small fine and a "reprimand" (do those even really mean anything in Formula One?) aren't much of a deterrent.

It is just that the FIA did not want to see RBR on pole again.

Personally, I don't see why the FIA just can't randomly go into the garage during quali and take a fuel sample then. The whole point of low fuel quali is to allow the cars to run on the absolute limit of fuel for the maximum performance. Telling the teams that they need X amount of fuel in the car after quali is, in principle, the same as last year's rules of qualifying on race fuel.

Massive tyre issues ... didn't use extra soft tyres, Rosberg did to get into q3.

I fear that the FIA may have set a dangerous precedent here.
And it seems to me that Hamilton and McLaren seem to be made of Teflon this year :p

Bridgestone are predicting that two and three stop strategies.
Quote:
The race start is at 12 noon local time which is probably not going to be the warmest time of the day, which will not assist tyre performance. From the longer run data we have seen we do not predict that the super soft will be very durable, and this and the graining we have seen means it is unlikely that we will see one stop strategies.

Hi guys,
Traditionally, each extra lap of fuel onboard translates to 0.3s difference in lap time?
Please correct me if wrong, thanks.

Liuzzi: 'Tyre wear will be high and I think it will make for a really crazy race"

:D

Edit: Around Montreal it would be around 0.1s I think.

I'm genuinely excited about this race, which is pretty rare for me. Red Bull are favourites starting with the hard tyres but they'll have to use soft tyres at some point and when they do will be crucial to the outcome. The race is punishing on brakes, fuel, tyre wear and we'll probably see a crash or two. Should be very entertaining indeed.
