‘A Shakespeare novel’: F1 team chiefs demand clarity on track limit rules

The Mercedes principal, Toto Wolff, decried the rules as being the length of a “Shakespeare novel” and Red Bull’s Christian Horner said they should be definitive rather than “shades of grey”. Hamilton had been taking the wider, faster line on the understanding that it was acceptable because of the FIA instruction that track limits would not be monitored for lap times at that corner. However, Hamilton was warned by the FIA over taking that wider line in mid-race. “With these track limit things, they’re always going to be contentious,” he said. “We need to be consistent in which messages are being given,” he said. “At the beginning of the race it was said track limits in turn four wouldn’t be sanctioned,” he said.
