    Next time Max should just go off track and let Lulu go by since that's what Britain and his fans want. Lewis had a full lane to his right, missed the corner and took Max out but the Lewis fans are too blind to see that.

      No he didn't. Max had to turn right to make the turn or else he'd go off track like Leclerc did. I didn't know Lewis needed the whole track to himself 🙈

    Things are really getting bad for Christian Horner. I heard that Geri (His wife) said it was a racing incident and he gave her a choice of either sleeping on the couch or a 10 second stop and go durring their whoopee time.

    Clearly Hamilton is playing coy and responsible...


    I'm not a fan of LH, but this crash is on Verstappen. Hamilton's front wheel was already halfway past Verstappen's rear end. That racing line is rightlyfully Hamilton's on the inside. LH was just following through. MV turned into him - granted there was room there for LH to turn in tighter, but with the risk of oversteer. Verstappen should taken a wider line and let LH overtake there.


      @E 1530 At the same token, once an overtaking vehicle is substantially along side the lead car, the overtaker doesn't have to concede. Vestappen forced a tighter line, ignoring the fact that LH is right next to his vehicle on the right. That's unsafe driving. (clearly) since it resulted it collision. LH was well within his rights to hold his line. He reached the MV's vehicle way before the turn-in.

    • E 1530
      E 1530

      The car ahead and on the proper racing line isn’t the one who backs off. Hamilton tried to force a pass on a very fast corner when he wasn’t ahead or on the proper line and hit Verstappen. If Verstappen goes out wide he hits the aggressive kerbs like Leclerc did later in the race which almost spun Leclerc out. Hamilton was too eager and Verstappen held his ground and got taken out.

    I would go one step further, hamilton knew what he was doing. If they both had to retire after the crash, nothing would have changed, but he was lucky instead and won the race. Everyone who tried to blame Lewis was a racist and to proof the point,merc trolls started to bang on their keyboards racist comments. Oh boi

    After the collision between Vettel and Bottas in France in 2020 Hamilton said: When someone destroys your race they should not be able to finish and much less in first place. But of course, Sebastian Vettel arrives in France as leader of the championship, he destroyed Valtteries race and only gave him a patz in the back?, they shouldn't let him go back and finish.

    Maybe Hamilton has had time to think about it now and can come clean and redeem himself in some magical way and win the next race. Just own it Lewis.

  • Petazir

    Remember back in 2012 when Lewis pushed Maldonado off the track and then turned in on him even harder the following corner and ended up in wall? Who got penalised then? Maldonado, for apparently taking out Hamilton, when in the first place he pushed opponent off the corner but at least his penalty was DNF then. Now he claims Max left him no space when he's done it even dirtier before. The so called "fair" racer. He's a great driver but I guess desperate times need desperate moves.

  • f c

    Clearly Max's fault. Lewis is in front, Max comes from behind, puts his front tire in front of Lewis's back tire and accelerates while Lewis brakes for the curve. Lewis's car slows down, Max's car speeds up, Max's accelerating right back tire meets Lewis's descelarating left front tire...booom! The rest is gospel. That flying wheel could have hit Max's head and decapitate him or make him look like an Easter Island statue for the rest of his life.

      I agree you can see he (lh) has ample time to slow before the collision and he actually moves more towards the outside line to catch the inside of the second apex of the chicane which from watching the video from all the available angles is (MV) line into the second part of the sequence. I can tell (mv) expected (lh) to stay closer to the Apex of the first corner subsequently bringing him outside the racing line for the latter part of the turn which (lh) clearly if you watch before the turn in encroaches enough into (mv) line just enough to upset the drive of that man and wreck him into the barrier

    Verstappe and Hamilton turn to the left 0:27. Then both try to take a different arc through the turn. Verstappe only leaves room for 1 car on the very inside of the turn and ending on the very outside of the turn. Hamilton wants to not touch the inside of the turn and end at the very outside of the turn leaving no room for a car at all.

    I am not verstappen fan nor hamilton fan. Hamilton has done this with redbull for more than 3 times. Hamilton does not go to available place for him nor backs up little bit for avoiding crash. Understeer was problem they say but if he could have braked harder for reaching apex he could have avoided this situation. Hamilton had advantage during red flag for repairing his front wing and got lucky with broken ferrari.
