Well that was inevitable.
Get out of my way
No YOU get out of my way
NO YOU Oh bloody hell...
I guess Hamilton should start looking around himself in the remainder of the season, considering we now know that pushing out the opponent into a gravel pit means only a 5 second penalty and punting out your opponent means only a 10 second penalty.
Well that ending was more interesting than things initially suggested after the restart.
Bit bummed the McOranges couldn't keep up after the stops though...
Racing was great, but I am burnt to a crisp
(7am to 5:30pm in the sun)
This was guaranteed to happen since race 1 in the season, each time Lewis would back out, this time neither did results are guaranteed.
listening to Horner cry is worth the price of tv though
Horner was an embarrassment in the post race interviews.
Was it a dicey move? - yes
Was it worthy of a penalty? - yes
Did Hamilton demonstrate later in the race that overtaking at Copse is totally possible to do without a crash? - yes
Did Hamilton get caught up in the crowd hype when he should have perhaps been more respectful of how he won the race? - yes
Whilst the crash was scary fast the move itself wasn't 'dangerous' (anymore than F1 racing is inherently dangerous). Replays show him alongside on the straight - he obviously then slows down to make the corner but max turns in (reasonably so) which result is what looks like a dive up the inside (which it wasn't). Ultimately because the crash was so scary the internet then wants Hamilton's head. If Max had just run wide a bit then the discussion would be over already (kind of like how Leclerc went wide at the exact same spot when Lewis passed him).
Racing is scary, accidents will happen, shame that we didn't get to see Max and Lewis battle it out for longer. RB (or rather Christian Horner) will always be salty even if it was their fault.
Hamilton (in hindsight) will probably wish he hadn't celebrated quite so hard after winning whilst his main rival is in hospital but the crowds reaction probably got the better of him (understandable).
if roles were reversed everyone, with horner loudest amongst them, would be lauding verstappen for his ballsy no-quarter-given overtaking
No driver will ever get anywhere in F1 by being Mr Nice-Guy. Ok you go first, I'll try again later, just won't cut it.
Ayrton Senna was very 'forceful' and is regarded by many as the best driver in the history of F1.
Absolutely sickened by the racist hatred spreading across the net targeted at Hamilton, regardless of how people feel about the crash it's just beyond vile.
Aint that the truth
Horner does himself no favours with the previous incidents where lewis had to back out to avoid a accident
Perez is worse than bottas lets be blunt, Bottas at least always there to pick up as requried
Perez last few races has been AWOL
To be fair yesterday he had two good reasons to suck...
1: He was the only one on a two stop strategy
2: He was forced to surrender the point or two he could have gotten after overcoming that massive strategy deficit because spiting Lewis over fastest lap was more important to Horner than Perez finishing in the points
Of course that doesn't excuse his terrible performance in quali and the sprint, just saying it ain't always as simple as the crap results for Perez suggest.
*Puts on tinfoil hat*
I honestly think Perez' car had some kind of fault on Saturday. At that speed the car is basically glued to the ground yet somehow Perez managed to dump the throttle like he was doing a burnout. That points to an ECU or hybrd delivery problem to me, it seems more likely to me than Perez just standing on the throttle like an idiot.
*takes off hat*
Anyway, I don't think that should even have been a penalty. Verstappen's entire MO is to dive into the corner and hope the other guy gets out of the way. Even on lap 1 that was the third (fourth?) time he'd slammed the door on Hamilton, sooner or later he was going to do it in a way that Hamilton either couldn't or wouldn't get out of the way fast enough. Everyone fawns over Max and Lewis when they roll the dice like that, it's inevitable that it will go wrong sooner or later.
Horner need to stop his whining, if Maxs punts someone off the track later in the year (as he surely will) he'll live to regret his bellyaching.
I've felt a little disappointed when team principles have left or been removed, especially ones with character, but good god I definitely won't shed a tear when Horner finally goes.
I don't think many tears will be shed across F1 if/when Horner or Marko leave the sport.
RBR imo seem to have outdone Ferrari as the biggest dicks in F1.
I don't understand why so called fans can't be as reasonable as this.
The mood perhaps wasn't helped by RBR alumni David Coulthard and Mark Webber. Why C4 had to have Horner on repeatedly before the end of the race for his former employees to give him a soapbox was a bit bizarre. I said last season they were running PR for Albon so at least they're consistent I guess.
Webber happily let RBR treat him like a doormat for years so him not mustering a critical word of them is not surprising.
Plus as you said, they're former employees of RBR/Horner's [i think, nor sure on the former part] so it's and easy in for C4/Whisper Films
Hold an auction between Bezos, Musk and Branson to decide who gets to shoot Horner into space, use proceeds of said auction to get Mazeturd out of F1, simples.
Only if we can launch Bezos, Melon and Beardy into the sun along with them.
