    WTAF! If you know that the driver has changed cars why not black flag him at the start. Why do they have wait for half of the race to finish to black flag him?

    So what I’m noticing is that from the 80s to the Bahrain GP, the stewards still don’t know how to enforce rules. If you can’t use or drive your spare car, why bring one? Just because a talented driver can make the most out of a tough situation doesn’t mean they’re cheating
