    It's not like they haven't been competing in whatever their sport is for the majority of their lives up to that point.
    ...unless daddies money helped a bit...

    But putting that aside, it's common knowledge (at least in the jobs i did) that the employer is more likely to turn a blind eye for the"unexperienced new guy",while if a senior makes the same mistake,he'll be getting less mercy...

    While money does make the world go round, Stroll and Mazepin have both had decent careers in racing prior to F1. It's not like they bought their way directly into F1 without actually 'earning' a super license. Now, would either of them have been picked over the other drivers without their financial backing? Probably not but that's part of the business as to how much sponsorship or direct money the drivers bring with them.

    Professional sports are not like what our normal working class jobs are like.... Their level of expected preparedness is 1000 fold what is expected when someone takes a new working class job... You don't get handed a million dollars worth of merchandise and get told to take care of it for the next 12 months in working class roles.

    How would that have been restarted? I have no idea honestly. I'm guessing everyone pits, and then line up in the pit lane? And then start from the end of the pit lane when the light goes green??
    Official word on the procedures in case everyone had gone into the pits:

    Why are people still up about Stroll? He managed to outperform his teammates in the rain(-qualifying) lots of times. I think his main problem is he doesn't handle managing buttons well(which shouldn't be a competence needed in the sport anyway) and does well when it's only about steering wheels, pedals and seats of pants. Give the guy a break already. Sunday he made an honest mistake, IMHO definitely not worse than Bottas or any other person who managed to outbreak himself in wet conditions.

    Wasn't it already clear Bottas was out?

    Talking about ensuring his future outside Mercedes, Wolff is almost saying it's a done deal. I'd be very surprised if he is still there next year. And stop overplaying Lewis' influence and please stop filling in blanks about his opinion. Of course he said he'd like Bottas to stay. Nice teammate that says he doesn't care if he stays or goes. The press would have Hamilton's head too. But in the end it doesn't matter because with them(and the 'fans of the sport') you get bitten either way
