Re: Why not ban pit stops when the safety car is out.

Because then tactics couldn't come into play; bottom line is Mercedes and Hamilton were out thought by Ferrari at this race. If the roles had been reversed and Mercedes/Hamilton had taken an advantage from this VSC would there be as much wringing of hands?

The really sad thing that this indecent highlights is that, due to knee-jerk reactions for Senna's death back in 1994, F1 has been smothered by the rule-book and on-track overtaking is now a rarity in F1; and that is not a good thing.
