Six months of lousy timing service, FIA decides to ask questions, receives epic excuses

Time’s up, timekeepers! It’s now time to answer some questions about time and timing, because for six months now, and that’s a lot of time, we were exposed to sub par service, missing stage times, very iffy split times, sometimes no times.
