We know now that Perez’s car was close to retiring.
I’m going to put my tinfoil hat on and claim that Red Bull wanted the race red-flagged in order to assess Perez’s car and situation.
Nothing ever comes out of these investigations. The facts are that Verstappen and Stroll had the exact same tyre failure at the same part of the track half an hour between each other. So only Stroll, Verstappen […]
It would be impossible for a tyre to fail behind the safety car.
Handing time penalties to everyone that ignored yellow flags would be pointless I think, since it’s not going to change the classification. But everyone deserves penalty points.
A couple more questions for Mr Masi:
-Why did the safety car take so long to be called after the two accidents?
-Why weren’t drivers that ignored yellow flags penalised?
To add, why don’t they apply this logic to qualifying?
What a mess.
I appreciate the honesty but this reason is unacceptable. So Liberty and Masi have admitted that they prioritise show over race directing consistency. The championship has been influenced because of this.

I have to congratulate Verstappen for reacting so calmly. I wouldn’t have acted like him. Pirelli is compromising the championship and driver safety 10 years into the sport.

I legitimately feel sorry for F1 drivers sometimes. The amount of media obligations that they have to tend to is insane. On top of the journalists, they have obligations to Liberty and their own teams and […]

What? I was under the impression that after a crash the entire car is checked. Surely that’s the responsible thing to do.
If he felt that way why wouldn’t he say so? Seriously, in the last 5 years how many times has Hamilton underperformed? It’s much more likely that Mercedes underperfomed and set up up his car wrongly.
People just […]
People on social media and Reddit have already been deriding Hamilton for his attitude. I find that shameful. This is precisely why Hamilton is usually very boring in his interviews; because he knows that he’s b […]

This was Ferrari’s only chance for a win this year and they squandered it. Ultimately it were the drivers that cost the team. Leclerc made a bad mistake (that he has repeated in the past, Baku 2019) and Sainz s […]

Really annoyed at both Ferrari drivers. That was a bad mistake from Leclerc. And Sainz should have been in the front row. He lost three tenths in the last sector of his flying lap.
Now there’s a chance neither […]

Embarrassing strategic error by Red Bull. This has happened to them before. I don’t understand why they made the same mistake. It doesn’t matter that Mercedes had a quicker car. Red Bull essentially gave up […]

I’m so pleased for Ocon! Against all expectations he’s been doing extremely well. I knew he had it in him.
The extended DRS zone caused this.
Exactly, this accident wouldn’t have happened if the DRS zone wasn’t extended. Bottas must have been blind-sighted by Russell.
