Well said. F1 is a sport for fans to watch and enjoy. It’s something for pleasure and perhaps take your mind off the things that goes on in ones life. I’m not sure if the word sanctuary is the […]
There was a “clear violation” of rules that were there but hadn’t been enforced for who knows how long @hotbottoms. This is another one of the recent “FIA trying to show they are in charge” things, just like the […]
@hotbottoms That’s basically my point. The success went to the head of every single individual in the team, so much so they failed to qualify for the world cup, while England brushed off the disappointment and are […]

@hotbottoms Same. They should maximize points while they still can on pace.
@hotbottoms I agree, as soon as Perez overtook Sainz and declined to cede the position back immediately he should have been shown a drive through penalty. Fed up of this attitude of not penalising drivers for […]
@hotbottoms Not according the rules between driver on track and exiting pit is slightly different then 2 drivers on track.
As Perez gave the spot back right after SC ended there was nothing to give an penalty […]

@hotbottoms That’s definitely part of the calculation. For Max, Sainz is almost a big a threat as Leclerc. And Leclerc is also effectively competing with Sainz at the moment.
TFLB commented on the post, Verstappen beats Leclerc to win intense Jeddah battle by half a second 6 months, 1 week ago
@hotbottoms I don’t think he would have… Perez would have had a mighty final sector and main straight (where RB were much quicker than Ferrari) and would have benefitted from the tow from Russell plus DRS. He […]
Jere commented on the post, Zhou's first F1 race "even better" than promise shown in testing 6 months, 1 week ago
@hotbottoms True, good point. I always intend to be authentic with language & or country-specific pronunciations, though. BTW, what I forgot to include in my original post is U in Yuki with a vertical line.
Talby commented on the post, Horner criticises "harsh" decision to replace Masi as F1 race director 7 months, 1 week ago
@hotbottoms This is why the Abu Dhabi report needs to be made public, so people can’t put forward the red herring of Mercedes having had the opportunity to pit.
That and the fact that its not being made public […]
bosyber commented on the post, Masi made "right decision" with Abu Dhabi restart call – Grosjean 8 months, 2 weeks ago
Yep well said @hotbottoms, I was expecting (hm, really? Maybe not, but title suggested I was going to ;) to read Grosjean’s take on why changing procedure (ends justify the means?) was correct, but he’s saying […]
@hotbottoms Good question. Maybe because they actually love the controversy more than reaching solutions and reducing the likelihood of similar controversies in the future? Maybe to ensure Hamilton is locked into […]

Jere commented on the post, FIA begins investigation into Abu Dhabi restart controversy 8 months, 3 weeks ago
@hotbottoms Yes, but only the team would’ve been sanctioned, not HAM, so a win-win.
Anyway, you rightly point out such an attempt wouldn’t have worked since Masi would’ve breached protocols in any case.
Aapje commented on the post, Bottas concludes his Mercedes chapter in Hamilton's shadow 9 months, 1 week ago
One possible interpretation of the accident was that Russell gave Bottas more room than he would have given another driver, which put him on the grass, which caused him to crash into Bottas.
Dan Rooke commented on the post, Bottas concludes his Mercedes chapter in Hamilton's shadow 9 months, 2 weeks ago
@hotbottoms – I agree with you. Not Bottas’ fault, I was just being light-hearted about his involvement in the incident!
If Masi had followed the rules after his “any doesn’t mean all” decision, the race would’ve ended behind the safety car.
But the argument is that this call to only let some cars pass was illegal […]
