As it was smashed up it wasn?t weighed and went straight back to Italy.

You could not compare Vettels pace in the race to Kimi?s as he DNS....... and therefore wouldn?t know he was underweight.


Vettel also took the wheel from the car at the end.

Vettel wasn?t that upset about the crash afterwards. Was he controlling his emotions unlike Baku and Mexico last year??

What do you guys think?
Running underweight, would be a pretty risky strategy, as cars get randomly weighed after the race. So the intention is to crash anyway to avoid that scenario?

Seems even more risky, as the chance of ?causing a collision? or ?damaging a gearbox? must be pretty high.

Don?t you just love conspiracy theories
