And done.

I don't see his comments as motivated, except in regard to consistency of rules, etc. Sure his comment was directed at something Lewis did, that's what happened.

I think he's speaking towards the lack of, and therefore need, for better rules to keep these incidents cut and dry. Lewis said he undid his belts, Sebastian took his wheel with him. Yet, there was no enforcement.

I could imagine the next team/driver facing this rule on the other side would have grounds for some protest. Maybe even appeal. It's a slippery slope. FOM (what is it called now?) And the FIA could nip this in the bud, will they?

Just like Indy 05, politics show's itself in F1 every now and then. It usually works out.

Why Charlie gets to pick when a rule matters, and when it doesn't is a good debate. I think. Is it a collaborative decision with the stewards?

It would not be hard to eliminate either of these issues from concern, with proper leadership.

Edit:

Oh and, Please let it be JPM!
