    I think the VSC went alright yesterday, but I don't quite understand why it would be needed for the entire circuit. I know they have a delta lap they have to stick to, but why can't they have a slow zone on the section of the track where the incident has occurred.

    The FIA split the lap up into many small sectors, so lets say a car went off at COTA at T15, the cars would go into a slow zone at about T13, and this takes effect when the drivers pass a light board saying something like SZ (Slow Zone), so they would have to stick to a very reduced speed limit, slower than they would under a VSC delta lap. With this instead they are going extremely slowly so there's a further reduced amount of risk to the marshals, etc, and then they can go racing again once they get to a green flag or light board showing green. 
    It's so that the gaps are maintained. For example, Hamilton is leading by 6 seconds and passes through the slow zone. By the time Rosberg gets their, the slow zone is clear and cars are back up to racing speed. Rosberg wouldn't have to slow down, but Hamilton would've done so the gap has come down.

    See?
    Then you could just impose the VSC until every car has passed through that zone an equal amount.

    or you could've just said I done it the wrong way instead of being so sarcastic, duh
    It was a joke. sorry if I offended you.
    sarcasm is not offensive but it is the lowest form of wit, no need to apologise
    You're not exactly helping yourself with backhanded comments like that to be honest.
    lol ok im just being honest, nothing backhanded at all
    You do know you can be offensive whilst being 'honest' too right?

    I personally think Austin is an awful track. No soul and all the wide apex entry corners are really awkward to drive on. From a spectators point of view its not so bad though.
    I'm assuming with the soul comment you mean about how Austin has replicated parts of the track from other circuits. All the newer tracks nowadays tend contain loads of boring and uninteresting corners, so I'd rather this circuit have copied epic bits of other track than face that usual criticism. It's made a brilliant circuit in my view, plus Austin has still got it's own party piece in turn 1. 

    To add to the topic of "soul" as well though I'd personally say it makes up for itself in that by being one of the most unique races on the calendar in terms of surroundings and culture. 
    Fair enough, from a spectators point of view it is a good watch as seen by the previous seasons but my experience of driving on it in iRacing has kind of scarred me a little from liking it as weird as it sounds.  :s
  4. Perhaps the FIA should introduce harsher penalties for not complying with yellow and double yellow flags.  Binachi had failed to sufficiently slow down enough for the double yellows considering he was traveling at 130mph on the exit of the corner, in the wet and the rules say that ' two waved yellow flags at the same post means that drivers must slow down and be prepared to stop if necessary'. 

    A slow down zone shouldn't be necessary in Formula 1. Its not like Le Mans when there's different classes with different speeds which led to awkward situations under yellows when a faster class car came up behind a slower class car.

    Sorry you see it that way.  I think you couldn't be more wrong, and the YES campaign explained the benefits of independence pretty clearly.
    What benefits?

    "Yeah we'll have oil for a few years but after that we'll have literally nothing"

    I heard someone say you'd have 25% unemployment over night because business would move to the UK. 
    Maybe don't just rely on what you heard "someone" say.  A Scottish goverment would have had the power to foster the right economy to create jobs.
    If business leaves, jobs leave. You cannot stop them leaving.
    Don't forget that the SNP threatened businesses supporting the no vote by nationalising them. :stuck_out_tongue:

    Isn't that what you're doing too?

    It's a debate. Everyone has to decide who's right and who's wrong and the most convincing argument put forward was from the Better Together campaign which was clearly reflected in the poll results, despite some hooligans trying to scare people into voting yes.
