First, the SC came out late and at the wrong time, ahead of the wrong car. Instead of taking the lead, before GP captain Max Verstappen, the safety car exited the pit lane in front of George Russell.
The Mercedes driver finished third when McLaren driver Daniel Ricciardo stopped at the track. At that point, all cars were supposed to double, but the technical times to remove the English wing car have expanded significantly. Although there were several laps to go to the checkered flag, the last few laps were a slow torment, waiting for the green light that never came.
