I liked the pit-exit pass.

Isn't it bad form to try and block a pass when the passer is already alongside? this isn't BTCC....

Well, how would you feel when you had already been cheated on once a few laps before and then pushed out of the very final turn to make you lose?

Magnussen claims that the Porsche braked early which is why he tapped him. *shrug*

For me its not about feelings - its about racing.
And seen the last turn and the door being closed and a driver with car pushed to the wall to not allow passing is bad racing style.
Maybe its just me. If there was anything to judge on before u loose the chance stewards will chime in when you do such a freakin manoeuvre...

As one might imagine, this one's been debated to death in many circles. My take:

Pit-out pass: Should have resulted in a stop-and-go penalty, and this would all be avoided. It has been noted that stewarding has been very lax in this series for a long time.

Bump out of T2 (T1 is the kink over the front-straight hill crest)... Racing incident.

Last turn bump: I don't buy the early braking argument. The Vette was charging in very hard, the Porsche may have been a little careful, being the last turn, likely with worn tires... the responsibility for passing safely still rests with the following car.

that said... a 'bump pass' is illegal and could be successfully protested. keeping that in mind...

The run to the wall: WAY, WAY, WAY out of line. Bergmeister may not have meant to put Magnussen's Vette in the wall, but intentions and outcomes are worlds apart.

I think the penalty to Magnussen is appropriate, but too easy on Bergmeister, which is not to say their actions didn't make for an incredible clip Shocked

Next year, I think I'll skip the return of F1 to Montreal and get ALMS tix instead Laughing
