F1 – Japanese GP: Verstappen’s coronation amid general misunderstanding!

In an incredible scenario, Max Verstappen took victory at Suzuka and his second World Drivers’ Championship title.

as per the rulean event cannot last longer than 3 hoursit was only 40 minutes of racing that we had this morning.

This event is just the beginning of a strange Grand Prix and surprising decisions.

The organization pointed out!

The first highlight of this Grand Prix is ​​the appearance of a crane on the track while the pilots were still driving.

Images which are reminiscent the tragic 2014 Japanese Grand Prix and the accident by Jules Bianchi.

Pierre Gasly (Alpha Tauri) was very annoyed in his stand during the red flag. He will even explain to the media after the race that he has moved on to 2 meters of death. The FIA for his part considers that it is the French pilot who is at fault.

A few hours later, it was during the checkered flag that misunderstanding is at the highest. Logically, the pilots should have done a lap more at the end of the stopwatch, which was not the case at Suzuki.

Worse still, the teams were persuaded that there was still a lap while not. For his part Verstappen was not even show as he crossed the finish line as a winner.

Finally, the FIA awarded the whole points. This is about section 6.5 of the rules which indicates that full points will be given if the race ends on track even after appearance of red flag and it doesn’t matter the duration of the test.
