Thought this might be worth a thread. Schumacher used to call it "maximising within the rules".
So it was explained in Sochi, that if you cut the 1st corner, you'll get no punishment, but you'll have to negotiate the poly chicane and that should ruin your quali lap or cost you time/position whilst you are racing. Fernando Alonso made an innocent mistake at the start of course, but one or two wholly unreasonable cynics might argue that he figured if he cut that corner at the start, he could avoid any possible collisions and probably win himself some places. He totally "Playstationed it" and it actually was quite comical to watch.
Senna once posted fastest lap whilst going through the pits (sounds insane to say that now).
Just wondering what other examples we got of people getting cheeky with the rules and what was the outcome? In F1 or any other category.
