“It was all about the tire. Lance called it at the beginning of Q3 and said it’s going to be intermediates at the end. He was absolutely right. He called it at the very beginning, which is difficult to do. But we put him on the intermediate, and he did the job.“

⚠️STROLL & NORRIS YELLOW FLAG EXPLANATION & EVIDENCE THREAD⚠️— CrankyYankeeF1 (@CrankyYankeeF1) November 14, 2020
Great questions as to why Stroll got a pass & Norris didn't
KEY POINT: Stroll was single yellow, Norris was double yellow. FIA made Appendix H 188.8.131.52.b the sticking point. Use of "significantly"matters a great deal. pic.twitter.com/BtQbTjqaAC
🇬🇧 NORRIS' PENALTY 🇬🇧— CrankyYankeeF1 (@CrankyYankeeF1) November 14, 2020
Norris progressed to Q2 on the lap regs cite he must prove he "significantly" reduced. He's instructed to complete his lap (0:44) after asking what to do (0:38):https://t.co/Vek7TJnUl7
Even with double yellows, it got him through as he improved by 0.780.

On the other hand, other drivers respected the flag to its fullest. KMag is a good example. He's perplexed how people improved despite double yellows as heard here:https://t.co/RvQGHsf0e6
He was knocked out of Q1 after slowing on his lap dramatically.
