In case anyone was wondering about the heli situation. If the weather was in fact inhibiting it, they shouldn't have started the race.

Just heard that on my broadcast... Something seriously wrong with the way FIA handled this entire race.

Sour win for Hamilton but always has a grin on his face regardless on how he won.
I think it's quite disgusting from you to use this accident to find yet another reason to criticise Hamilton, but whatever tickles your fancy.
Umm ok? A sour win for Hamilton because of Bianchi's incident and a grin on his face for winning the race, obviously any driver will take a win but this one was with a sad outcome.

It could be that the weather wasn't inhibiting it as they started the race, but when that new front rolled in the situation changed

Entirely possible. I didn't see the radars at the beginning, just saw what was on-screen, and it looked just as bad at the beginning as it did when they red flagged the race at the end.

Possible... But once the situation changed and heli couldn't fly anymore shouldn't they red flag the race until it can?

Yes, although it's quite possible those two points overlapped anyway. Cars were only just starting to go onto full wets when the incident happened, and then there was a significant time getting Jules to the medical centre before the helicopter was called upon. It's entirely possible that for the duration of the live race, it would have been able to fly.

Purely speculative of course. I certainly agree that if at any point during the race the director gets a call saying the helicopter is grounded, the race should be neutralised.
