All 4 wheels off the track yes, but at over 100 mph and on slippery grass, and not while Lewis was right behind the Ferrari or trying to pass / out break the other car.Thanks for this. Unfortunately I don't have the combinations of access required so I haven't been able to watch the video. I will try and find it another way. I am hoping they deal with the fact that Vettel had all four off track.
The curb where the grass ended was higher and made the front end air born before coming down on the track with lots of oversteer.
Otherwise, Vettel would have rejoined the track where he was aiming at, in the middle.
Its visible in the video. Could Vettel have slowed down more, I don't know, but watching his steering input, it looks like he was trying to get back control of the car.
Some of the pundits think that the stewards could have asked Vettel to switch places with Lewis and we might have seen a thrilling finish in the race. It could be perhaps be argued he had an advantage, like the Monaco shortcut through the first schicane after the tunnel.
But this was grass and not tarmac.
Had there been gravel instead of grass, the issue would never have come up.
