You have heard of this guy... right?
Which of them had access to all the data and has the greater
experience as a steward?
(It's rhetorical, there is only one answer and I am not interested in
any more of your lies and pig headed conceit.)
And yet you can't resist chiming in...

"It is fair to say that when it comes to picking my favourite people in
this wonderful sport, one of them is very definitely Emanuele Pirro. We
have known each other for 36 years, in fact he finished third in the
very first race I ever reported on. And, in the course of those 36
years, we have had many happy times in places all over the world. Of
all the drivers I know, Emanuele is the one who tries hardest to give
back to the sport. He works as a race official both in Formula 1 and in
other championships, he is involved in commission work at national and
international level and he is the President of the Grand Prix Drivers’
Club as well. He doesn’t need to do any of it, but he wants to do it.
So when I heard a bunch of F1 commentator types attacking him for the
decision to penalise Sebastian Vettel – and doing it in a nasty way in
several cases – I was irked.
Emanuele is a man with impeccable credentials that most F1 drivers
would – or should – respect. He was a top single seater racer, who
raced in Formula 1 for three seasons."
Despite you failing to provide a reference, yes, I do know who that is:
A journalist who has never been a racing driver.
Pirro was, at best, a journeyman F1 driver. He raced for 3 seasons—only
one of which was full and got precisely 3 points. By that standard,
Pastor Maldonado was a great F1 driver. In 1988, when his teammates were
running as high as 3rd and 4th, the best he could muster in the same car
was a 9th. 1989 was better, but not much, so it's no surprise that he
was in a Dallara the next year and out of F1 entirely the year after that.
Yes, he had success at LeMans...
...but only with the all-conquering Audi team from 1999-2008.
Jackie Stewart is only one of the most respect F1 drivers of all time.
I realize you don't get this and probably never will, but road race
driving is a very visually-driven activity. People who know this
activity can look at a in-car video and understand what is going on.
You can go on all you like about the telemetry, but even if they let us
see it (why won't they, BTW?) you wouldn't understand it anyway, but
here's a little taste:
I realize you won't be able to understand anything beyond "look: at some
point Vettel got to full throttle", but the little tiny bump at 2.5s is
when he hits the grass,
and he adds light throttle at about 3.25 to stabilize the rear end one
he's back on the asphalt.
Then for nearly 1.75 seconds, he's never above 25% throttle.
Then in the last 1.25s before he finally gets the car straight, he tries
adding a bit more power, feels the back end getting away and has to back
out of it (and has to open the steering wheel as a consequence) and then
FINALLY is back in control, and can gradually get from about 62% to full
I realize that this will be too much for your tiny little brain, but
yes: there are times when you get oversteer that you need to INCREASE
throttle, and there are also times where you need to DECREASE throttle.
I say this to stop the ridiculous "ah-ha!" moment you'll try to have in
