“No doubt all the drivers are going to want some serious discussions to be going on, given of course what happened to Jules Bianchi here, as to how that was allowed to happen.”
Carlos Sainz, who crashed out on the opening lap, said: “Even behind a Safety Car we are going at 100 or 150kph and still at those speeds we don’t see nothing.
“If one driver decides to get a bit out of the racing line or has a small aquaplaning or has to change a switch on the steering wheel and gets a bit out of line and hits a tractor, it’s over.
“I still don’t know why we keep risking, in these conditions, having a tractor on track. You were going to red flag it anyway, so why risk it?”
