It was just some footage, who knows what more light are there. It's up to drivers to pay attention in these situations. Those lights have a meaning. If a driver misses that, it's just ignoring rules. In the past drivers were DSQ for that. The Mercedes team has many workers, spectating every detail, but somehow they missed that. And actually, Hamilton did. Those light are there to info drivers about the situation. They should know about that, it's protocol.It doesn't negate the fact that the communication could have been ****. Two signals on the outside of parabolica isn't enough when you are going inside to the pit. If the TV didn't realise the pit was closed until after Hamilton pitted then how did the Mercedes team?
