Tuscan Grand Prix: Lewis Hamilton leads criticism of restart approach after huge crash

Hamilton said the way governing body the FIA handled a safety car restart, which led to a multi-car pile-up that took four cars out of the race, “put people at risk so maybe they need to rethink that”. Hamilton said: “It’s absolutely not Valtteri’s fault at all. Bottas said Mercedes had raised their concerns about the potential for exactly this sort of incident before the race at Mugello. “Our team opened up the discussion this morning before the race that it is a bit of a concern here,” he said. “We are allowed to race from the control line [the start-finish line], [a ruling] which has been been there for a while. They put out the yellow flag all the time and safety cars, whatever, all the time to keep the race exciting,. More than that, Mugello’s demands helped create the drama of the race.
