to Stroll to fuck up the first lap.
Yep. Needless to say I'm annoyed. Hartley finally got through
qually without bad luck only to run afoul of the pay driver trying
to impress his home crowd and win the race on the first lap.
As Stroll and Hartley went through turn four...
...who was ahead?
Whom I'm pretty sure knows more about it than you do.
...suggests that the one trying to be too bold at the start was Hartley.
Even if Hartley was being a bit too bold, he still shouldn't have
expected Stroll to be on full opposite lock (see 21s into the the
clip on youtube at http://youtu.be/RwPn_GCa3mU ) on a
gentle right hander at high speed. It's a move plenty have pulled
off successfully in the past.
Due respect to Brundle, I'm sure he's right that to a degree Hartley
contributed by being in the right place at the wrong time due to being
racy. But these things happen in races.
Actually Brundle seemed to say that because motor-mouth Croft had already
knee-jerk reacted to seeing Hartley almost flip then hit Strolls car and he
didn't want to contradict his co-commentator. "HARTLEYS CRASHED INTO THE
FENCE - HE'S CRASHED INTO STROLL OUT TOO. THE WILLIAMS AN INNOCENT
BYSTANDER IN THAT". As usual Croft sees something happen and starts yelling
and blathering without knowing what happened and leaves Brundle the
unenviable job of trying to then disect what happened within the constraints
of what his compadre Croft just babbled.
I could hear in Brundles voice that he was trying to not say Croft had it
all wrong so he found middle ground. After someone's who you work next to
every race has just yelled "THE WILLIAMS AN INNOCENT BYSTANDER IN THAT"
you're going to try to say things that allow him some dignity.
It can be heard in that youtube video - they are a team and as such they
