Beam_erWell the rain was pretty bad with lots of standing water. Now the slower you drive an F1 car, the less down force produced. With all the water on track, and under double waved yellows, the chance of aquaplaning rises significantly. I believe that the race should have been either put under safety car or red flag a couple of laps before the incident, as conditions got worse and drivers started complaining. Hopefully Bianchi pulls through, looked as though he was getting a shot at driving for ferrari in the near future
Sure, if you go slower, there's less downforce, but that doesn't mean you can hit more corners. Never will you be able to better corner going faster than slower. If conditions were getting worse, than they could have either pitted and switched to the full wets, or driven slower. If you keep losing traction, go slower. From what I saw, conditions didn't seem much worse than the beginning of the race, and the full wets are there to be used, not for the race to be canceled before you need them. I hate to say it, because the guy's been pretty critically injured, but it's a matter of driver error on top of some bad luck.
