Baku was a strategic race, but there's nothing really strategic about reversing into someone in a parking lot.

I think the strategy was "Sink the Torpedo". Not really sure why that was the strategy, but yeah...

Well, your orientation is correct.

I can't remember if I posted Palmer's analysis' yet, but they're fantastic.  Him and ChainbearF1 have been great insights:

I don’t blame him, the lapped cars are usually either oblivious or ignorant.

Ha!  Well, if they got anything right this weekend, it was the post-race interview on the podium.

Garbage call by the stewards. Absolute trash. I'm glad the officiating in F1 is as inconsistent as it is in the NHL this season.

I don't agree with the call, there was nothing Seb could have done. I think the stewards called the rule to the letter of the law in how it is written, he left the track and made an unsafe reentry, albeit as I say to none of his doing other than misjudging the corner and going for a ride across the grass.
However, that corner is still a very old school type of design, all grass, little to no run-off area. They should push the fence back there and pave the runoff area, then the rule would make a lot more sense as Seb could have controlled his car all the way allowing Hamilton to pass.

I think the challenge that the stewards faced was that without a penalty, Seb basically didn't lose anything despite making an error. Is it fair that Hamilton lost his chance to overtake because Seb ran wide? No, of course not. But that's racing. Stewards interfering with the results based on an honest mistake by Seb just leaves a sour taste in the mouths of fans everywhere. What a itshay call. And apparently they've added 2 points to his license after the race because he switched the signs in parc ferme. Seriously? ffs. ::)

Yes it is racing. It could have been Hamilton seeing where Seb's car is going and cutting to the inside, he would have blown past him if that was the case as well. It was a racing incident, it's not as though Seb was trying to cut him off. It basically took away the excitement of the rest of the race because why would Hamilton think of even attempting an overtake if all he had to do is stay within 5 seconds. I would have enjoyed Seb backing Hamilton up into Leclerc a bit more because of this and upping the pressure that way, but it was too late into the race for that kind of a strategy.

Either way, it's a good bit of politics with the FIA which is part of the fun of F1.

Haha, I loved it too, but you knew they weren't going to let that one go.  I also found it amusing that no one fixed it.
