F1i poll: Did Valtteri Bottas jump the start in Austria?

Valtteri Bottas shot off the grid faster than the speed of the green lights yesterday in Austria.

While the FIA insists the Finn did not jump the start, according to their sensor readings, not everyone believes that to be true, including Sebastian Vettel.

F1's data logs reveals that Bottas reacted within 0.201 seconds of the lights turning green, but a bit of forensic work conducted by some devoted fans has a lot of people doubting the data.

What do you think?

We certainly don't want to take anything away from Valtteri's well-deserved win yesterday, but do you believe he jumped the start of the Austrian Grand Prix ?
