I can't help but feel that Nico knew exactly what he was doing.

Not this discussion again. Rosberg didn't pull a Schumacher - it was a driving error.

I agree. I don't think Rosberg would want to win/pole by cheating.

You want to win by being the better driver.

I haven't watched it frame by frame and comparing each frame to his previous fast lap but it just looks like he went in to deep then got a bit confused as to what to do down the escape road.

I understand Lewis being upset but he seems to have already made up his mind that Nico did it on purpose. :/  I was just starting to like him as a human being too.

I'd be inclined to disagree, the way he was sawing away at the wheel as he arrived into the corner reminded me very much of the schumacher incident in 2006. It was also amusingly convenient that his reversing manoeuvre started just as Lewis came into view. I have a sneaky feeling he will probably get away with it but it looked very cynical from where I was sitting.

The sawing at the wheel appears to happen just as the car gets loose due to overcooking the braking zone.

Still a very strange reaction, you rarely need to overcorrect an F1 car in such drastic fashion

Here, I downloaded the highlights from NBC and looped the onboard video when he "loses it". Quick before FOM finds it. ;)

Here's Sky F1's version. You can see more of the steering wheel and it starts earlier with him entering the corner before the incident.

Someone's put up a side-by-side video comparing the off with his pole lap to make it easier to judge...

 

 

In my opinion, it's too close to call. Hamilton will probably take him on the first lap anyway, so it won't matter much.

You can see the care lose grip and him having to make a correction in the mistake lap which starts the mini tank slapper. Looks innocent to me.

This is great. I love it when Lewis gets angry. I hope it's Alonso/Hamilton season all over again!

I'd be to busy for him if I was sitting around the house bored out of my mind.

Monaco GP: Toto Wolff explains Rosberg's wild steering movements - F1 news - AUTOSPORT.com

 

 

"The car was unsettled," Wolff told AUTOSPORT after Rosberg was cleared of any wrong doing.

"We see it on the data that he was braking a bit later [into Mirabeau]. They both braked later in Turn 3 [Massenet) already, both the exact same amount of metres.

"They both braked later on each of the runs and this is what it was. It was just an unsettled car because he was braking later."

Meh, first time I've bothered watching an F1 race in years since they actually showed this on their non Motorsport sub only channel here this time...

God damn F1 has gotten boring. I can't believe people claim this is better than when they had faster and potentially more dangerous cars(for bad drivers). At least back in the days when Michael and Mika rules first and second or was two different teams being better.

It's sad that formula one has gone from making the best and most ultimate cars possible, and then inventing safety feature for them, has gone the route of catering to more teams and instead of making cars safer with new safety equipment has decided to make the safe by making them slower.

We need a Formula ultimate, where they actually want to make the best cars you can possibly make and race them to see who has the best car and technology, this ... I might as well just watch formula 3000 it'd be more exciting, because it certainly isn't F1 anymore.

      AWS and Formula 1 announce six new racing performance stats
      by Ather Fawaz

      Image via Formula 1 With less than two weeks to go for the resumption of the 2020 season, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Formula 1 have announced six new performance statistics that will help fans analyze the flood of real-time data during races. This will help them gauge the performance of the cars on track and predict race outcomes. These statistics will use a variety of AWS offerings, including Amazon Kinesis, AWS Lambda, and Amazon SageMaker.

      To start off, on July 3-5, at the RedBull Ring in Austria, the debutant 'Car Performance Scores' will display an individual car’s performance using four metrics: Low-Speed Cornering, High-Speed Cornering, Straight Line, and Car Handling⁠. These are vital indicators of a car's race performance and will allow fans to compare different F1 cars on the track.

      The Car Performance Score stats are in addition to the five other metrics that will debut this season. Complete details on those are as follows:

      Vis-à-vis the initiative, Rob Smedley, the Chief Engineer of Formula 1, stated that “We’re excited to be expanding this successful relationship to bring even more insights to life, allowing fans to go deeper into the many ways that drivers and racing teams work together to affect success.” While Mike Clayville, Vice President of Worldwide Commercial Sales at AWS remarked that “This year, we’re thrilled to extend the power of F1 data in the cloud and unlock new insights that help fans understand more of F1’s rich complexity.”
