Another fine example, how did LH continue after being hoisted from a gravel trap?
I think Lewis is a great driver, but he has/is and will be working off of a different set of rules IMO, just like MS.
to quote the rule book,
6.1,Chapter III of appendix H from the FIA Formula One World Championship Regulations:
'If a car stops: If a car stops on the course, or leaves the track, the first duty of the course marshals in that sector is to take it to a place of safety.
'No driver has the right to refuse to allow his car to be taken off the track, he must do everything he can to help and obey the marshals' instructions. Once the car is in a place of safety the driver may, if the specific regulations of the event permit, work on it in order to re-start. In such cases other means, such as breakdown vehicles, cranes, etc. should not be brought into action until the driver has made it clear that he will not continue.
