Don’t even get me started on this one.
Actually, can’t help myself:
- the change in the regulations is now focused on any tyre crossing a line rather than part of a car, somehow they’ve re-visited the interpretation of ‘must not cross’ because of the change above.
- you are allowed to cross a painted line, with almost a whole tyre, when you ‘must not cross’ at all. They’ve butchered the meaning of cross which tends to mean move or extend across something e.g. a bridge, a road, a landmass
- there is no obvious reason why the interpretation has changed, except possibly to prevent blushes and an angry RB with a 6 point swing in the WDC. Monitoring adherence to this rule is harder and arguably there are safety implications
I obviously missed another part of the regulations which state any interpretation of these rules ‘must not make sense’. Also please disregard any RD notes as you see fit as these serve no purpose any way.
