I can't say anyone is at 'fault' per se. Bottas did nothing wrong, and the folks at the rear of the grid did nothing wrong. It's one of those weird racing incidents that resulted from miscommunications, basically.

I completely understand and respect your hesitation at having an American rocking around. I was desperately hoping that things would have cleared up slightly before I made the trip, but it just wasn’t happening.

I had to prove that I had recently tested negative for COVID-19 with official test results, that my husband and I were married via our marriage license, that he was Canadian via a photocopy of his passport. I went through three rounds of health screening followed by three rounds of screening about my quarantine plan, Read more

Seconding everyone noting the damaged attenuator taking a long time to fix. It was just destroyed. (And NBC ran out of broadcast time at 6pm, so it seemed like they were keen on just getting it over with).
