In contrast Stroll, also perpendicular to the racing line, waited until cars stopped going by and then attempted to rejoin the track (he got unlucky in that one more car was still coming). When one considers what happened at Spa just a week earlier, Vettel's actions were beyond thoughtless.
VET could not see anything from the side because of the high side protection on top of the cockpit and the HANS head protection support that prevents turning your head sideways completely. He was on the throttle as if the wheels stopped spinning he may have bogged down and the anti stall also plays a part.
