Sep.25 - F1 drivers sent a letter to the governing body after the recent race at Mugello.

It follows criticism by top drivers including Lewis Hamilton about the safety car re-start pileup, amid accusations Formula 1 is prioritising the show over safety.

12 drivers were reprimanded by the FIA for the crash, and the first of those to be named was Alex Albon.

"We sent them a letter with our reaction, because it is obvious that there was nothing strange or wrong about what I did," Red Bull's Albon said at Sochi, referring to the Grand Prix Drivers' Association.

"I don't blame any of the drivers for what happened," he added.

    I hoe that their letter included a promise to read the restart regulations. They should have sat down all 12 of them for one race and let the teams fill the grid with young lions. Might shed some light on their mostly average abilities.

  2. I can't remember

    I remember during one of the Indy races in it took 3 restarts to get it right. The first turn was a slow tight right hander where only 2 cars could get through with a great deal of cooperation, not racing, they just couldn't get right. For as long as I can remember F1 teams have tried to exploit the rules and I don't think any driver is going to say "you first" at a first turn.

    I also don't want race proceedings to be influenced artificially like CRASHCAR where yellow flags are used to tighten finishes.
