No one watch this weekend?

All this talk about jump starts. Nor sure why they are over complicating bringing in human reaction time into the equation. To me it is quite simple:
1) each car is in a starting box and the tyres must not go over the line before the lights go out.
2) the lights come on, one per second and then are randomly programmed to go off after a UNKNOWN duration. This is set by computer and the race official (Charlie Whiting) has no influence on this. He hits a button to start the sequence of the lights coming on and that is it apart from being able to hit an "abort" button to cancel the start.

As the lights-out time is random, it is simply NOT possible to anticipate when they go off. Sure you can GUESS, but chances are you are wrong.
To me Bottas moved just as the light when out and his front tyre was still inside his box, so a totally legal start.
Did he just react really really fast? These drivers must spend hours and hours practicing reaction times, so it wouldn't surprise me.
Did he "anticipate"? Well, he may have dropped his clutch when

the lights were still red and happened to get away with it, but there is no way he could have known the lights were going out milliseconds later.

Spot on start :s_thumbsup And to those who say "he was moving before anyone else"; well there are 20 cars and technically one is bound to be moving before the other 19 :s_cool


The race .... not a lot seemed to happen but the time went a lot quicker than many weirdly. I have tentative plans to go to the 2018 Austrian GP as being a short track you can see a lot more of the race, it is meant to be a really good weekend and I love Austria :D

Vettel is becoming a rear pain with complaining every race and he was still going on about it in the interviews at the end !
As Bottas didn't get penalised he was obviously in the clear....end of story .
The race had some action at the start ..and again at the finish ...middle bit I could have dozed off ;) tyres seemed to be going off but all survived to the finish :s_thumbsup
Looking forward to the next race :)

interesting point about the tyres there, Bob.

When Lewis came in, Brundle and Croft were going on about if the Ultrasofts would manage to make it the final 39 laps, ignoring that by that time, 34 odd laps had passed with most of the front runners still on those tyres and with a muchg higher average fuel load.
Plus apparently Jos Vestappen had been hit by Alsonso and Jan Magnesson was racing :s_scratchhead I think maybe the commentators were bored and not bothering during the race :N
