First Ever Stop-Go-Penalty for speeding in the pits

Postby 7UpJordan »

Oddly enough, this has only sprung into my mind right now. If I remember rightly, the first penalty for speeding in the pits was dished out to Erik Comas driving for Larrousse in the 1994 Canadian GP, and a neat little TV graphic come up showing red and green lights saying he's got a stop-go.

Hmmm could be now I have a decision to make? To rewatch the race for verification I will have to climb over a huge pile of rubbish, while performing an amazing act of balance and grace mind you :wink::lol: , just to get to my storage locker! Or I can take your word for it !

I think I'll play it safe and take your word for it :lol::lol: !

Pitlane speed limit was introduced at the 1994 Monaco GP, one of the many new regulations brought in after the tragic events at Imola that year. Alboreto's wheel falling off and knocking over Lotus mechanics was the motive behind the pitlane speed limit being introduced.
