I suspect the stewards deemed it to be a racing incident, however due to circumstances they had to punish Hamilton.
Under the normal course of events if the red flag wasn’t required, Hamilton would’ve had to […]
Yup, that and the onboard from the roll hoop from Max’s car at the point when he makes the 2nd right hand steering action and commits to the corner, you can clearly see Hamilton’s front wing in shot.
“He was already taking the widest line that would have still allowed him to clear the corner”… while keeping the loud pedal pinned to the floor.
Of course, he could’ve lifted the loud pedal to avoid an […]
cdavman commented on the post, Red flag for Verstappen crash 'saved Hamilton from retirement' 4 days, 14 hours ago
The trouble with attributing luck to a driver is it is very easy to do to fit ones narrative.
There’s no doubt Hamilton has been very lucky, but so have other drivers if you look for it. To highlight my point – […]
You don’t have to agree with it. After all the whole comments section is just opinion. Just like I can choose not to agree with your statement about it being British centric as to why he didn’t get penalised much. […]
I think the incident ultimately comes down to Hamilton recalibrating his approach to wheel to wheel combat, and Verstappen not…
What I actually mean by this is, historically Hamilton has been championship […]
In most cases I would agree with you. However, there’s a time and a place to try new things, and mid-way through a season is not one of them.
If Verstappen passes Hamilton tomorrow, which I fully expect, the […]
Well I found myself getting unnecessarily angry during that qualifying session. It was a great session, but i was watching it with my 7 year old Formula 1 mad son, and was having to try and explain why qualifying […]
cdavman commented on the post, How will Formula 1 decide if 'Sprint' races are a success? Ross Brawn explains 1 month ago
I fail to understand the point of the sprint races and I’m not sure it’ll do what they want. Only the top 3 score points, and even they are minimal. I don’t see there being much in the way of overtaking at the […]
@erikje yes you’re right, it would’ve fit my narrative much better if they’d said “oh Mr Masi sir, do you mind awfully red flagging this race immediately and not restarting so Max can still win?”, but alas they […]
I’m certainly completely wrong, but I can’t help but feel Red Bull’s call for a red flag was not for the reasons they claim.
I don’t know the exact timing of their message relative to when it was broadcast on […]
@thegianthogweed regardless of what he said on the radio beforehand, you don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. He got the better start and in the blink of an eye was alongside Perez. He pretty much had no choice […]
@john-h Yeah I get where you’re coming from, however the main interview people seem to have latched onto to is the Ziggo sport one. However, he merely answered the questions he was asked. The first one was […]
I find it strange how when Hamilton complains on the radio, lots of people jump on it and criticise him for being annoyed.
Yet, if you watch the onboards released by Formula 1, Gasly reacts in the exact same […]
The problem was he spun so close to the end of the lap, that had other cars passed him, he wouldn’t have been able to retake the position before the restart.
Looking at the footage again, I’m convinced he spun […]
So they’re trying to encourage new fans and all they do is make things more complicated and harder for new people to understand and it was bad enough already…
DRS is enabled when 1 second behind the car in […]
cdavman commented on the post, Mercedes' pit error was understandable – Alfa Romeo's was not 10 months, 2 weeks ago
Initially I thought your traffic light analogy was a good one, but then I thought about it a bit more and it’s not quite the same.
Those two panels used to highlight pit lane closure, I believe under a normal […]
I have to agree about the cutting away to cried shots, with a particular stand out being Austria and the constant cutting away to the orange army.
However, I am going to defend the race director a bit with […]
cdavman commented on the post, Hamilton given three-place grid penalty for impeding Raikkonen 2 years ago
I can’t shake the feeling that this is one of those grids we long to see, thinking it’ll deliver a classic race, but will be all but ruined at the first corner… I keep picturing Norris running too deep into turn […]
I feel that it’s over simplifying it for the fans that care and the casual fans that are trying to understand what’s going on.
Consider this scenario, as occurred last year where a team, say for example […]
