I don't get why the SC is staying out for so long. These marshals are really slow, had it been at Monaco we would be racing already for a few laps.


They are waiting for the lapped cars to chatch the field...

Ferrari saying that the SC didn't help Fernando, they are going to stop one more time...maybe.

Can they go till the end with these tyres?


Vettel and Button probably will, especially as this might go the full distance.
Alonso has 4-5 laps older tires and also they have taken a lot of punishment in the Pastor battle. He might need another stop and the tires will not be in the best shape to battle it out with the front runners with newer tires.

The longer the safety car is UNNECESSARILY out, it helps Alonso so much more.


How?

Zero to do with the marshalls- all to do with waiting on the lapped cars to unlap and rejoin the train at the end of the field. The HRT was cleared several laps ago.

It could not have been 45 seconds..


It doesnt need to be 45.

When SC is deployed - even if you are 20 sec behind - you have to drive slower for longer - so it gets stretched

Alonso was a long way behind and had to drive to the delta longer than the leaders.

Leaders pitted and came out in front. He is still massively lucky to get all the gap wiped out

Before he pitted the gap was only 8 seconds and shrinking..

Oh Man - do we need anymore luck for the Great One?

Designing a very fast car at the cost of poor reliability is actually betting on luck.

It would be true to form if they took each other out and Alonso got past.
