Genuine error, but a blessing in disguise imo.

Everyone knows it wasn't deliberate, but few trolls will keep this thread going

Probably not, but it kinda looked like the Schumi moment.

Hollow pole even if he didn't park it.

I put my head in my hand because I was imagining all the stupid comments there will be. No he didn't park it, but he was kinda lucky.

I think he didby looking at their replay. There is no reason to approach that corner from the right side of the track. For me it's obvious he's done it deliberately

Yes. From the replay it seems clear he had the option to keep going. He deserves a penalty.

It was a genuine error by Rosberg but his celebrations :rotfl:  :rotfl:...We can surely say now that Hamilton's recent words have had an impact. :up:

In the end it worked out well for him either way!

Just watch replays. Wrong line, hand movements and too much braking. Bad joke from Niko. Very bad joke.

If you make mistake approaching that corner.. do you go straight or do you try to turn and risk damaging your car (and cause yellow flags that way)

 

edit:

After seeing replays there's no case for those "deliberate" claims.

How was that story a few days ago about how much he learned from Schumi? He must have heard how they should do the talking on the track, haha

Yes he did. Nice needs all his aces to beat Lewis.  :drunk:

 

Lewis: "it was ironic"

Lewis: :)

 

and Lewis' face at the end of the interview was just  :stoned:

I say a fact. He approached that corner from the right. Unthinkable. He deserves to be disqualified from qualifying and start from the pit lane

If he wanted to "guarantee" it wouldn't he have "parked" it into the barrier?

Look again. And try looking at the steering wheel.

Parked it or not, he was SO FAR out of the track that the yellow flag didn't make any sense.

They all do that, there's a nasty bump on the left part of the run down to Mirabeau.

Too bad that trick had been played before and didn't end well. He would have been stupid to do so

Pretty obvious it was deliberately. Just watch his other laps onboard and compare.

I did that. Now you do the same thing. He could have parked the car close to the barrier ensuring yellow flags

This.

If he parks it in the barriers, he would damage his car, he does not want to damage his car, he just wants yellow flags!

How? Surely the whole point of deliberately parking the car is that is that he would then act as if it was a mistake rather than stand there celebrating?

What if Hamilton had done the same? He would have hit at least one thing during him stopping. Rosberg should have known instantly he should have parked later on.
