At Copse MAX lost it . Today both lost it ...But MAX got a 3 P penalty !
HAM would have the same penalty for going too wide like at Silverstone !

HAM just said his neck hurts badly ,MAX got 51 G at Copse and was 10 days covered in bruises , in the hospital they saw he got a concussion !

As you can see ...HAM was very lucky today , but it was his own fault !
Of course like I said to msk340i he ''could see'' it coming yet instead of acting Ham closed his eyes and hoped for the best and of course Mercafia is always going to favour MIB also stuffing Checo moving Merc's Bot and someone else each one place up ahead of him.

Car 33 “ predominantly to blame” ? That’s not only predominantly BS. It’s 110% dominant BS. Let’s hope the Stewards don’t ruin the most exciting season in years

Well that puts paid to VER for trying to play both sides of the coin. He runs HAM wide on the first lap but then expects room on the outside from HAM. VER is just a collision waiting to happen, others drivers took the curbs to avoid an accident, instead VER takes out HAM and took points off him.

This isnít likely the last collision for VER the way he drives.

From an amateur fan eye (mine) I would definitely put the blame on max for that one. Lewis was ahead at all times and in a tight chicane it would be unnatural and very difficult for him to veer all the way to the outside. If max was even with him there would be more of an argument for Lewis to move over but Lewis was clearly in front.

Max was carrying much more speed into the corner and thought he could sneak his way ahead with Lewis just leaving the pit but Lewis defended it well.

Look, theyíre the fastest and smartest racers in F1 currently and they both can read each other and they know what theyíre doing. They both knew what it meant going into the chicane and they both knew the outcome. The penalty is a by-product and not the real issue. The real issue is that instead of sportsmanship and hard wheel-to-wheel racing weíre getting a 51 G impact with one and a tire almost killing the other. Iím really really pissed that Max had his car on top of Ham and his foot on the gas! Just like I was pissed when Ham didnít seem (to me at least) to care about Maxís impact in Silverstone.

Lewis didn't have to defend anything, he was ahead turning into the corner and was on his racing line when Max broke late and was alongside Lewis only at the apex when it was too late for two cars to be in that spot.
Anyone who has raced at any level or even driven on the track competitively knows that if you are alongside a car approaching the corner, that corner belongs to the inside driver.
Max was outside forcing his position into a tight spot after very late braking and he simply chose to take his main competitor out and maintain the leading championship position.
Did he expect a point by from a raining champ?
I am not even a fan of Lewis but how can anyone blame him in this situation is beyond me.
I am going to say that Max is a very talented and fast driver, but he is also the dirtiest driver out there and he knows that the only way he can beat Lewis is by dirty tactics. Period.

Something other than the back and forth drivel...

Having watched the post session interviews from Friday and Saturday, Ric's disposition was surprisingly positive and it really seemed like he knew he was going to win. I thought during each it was odd how giggly confident he was about their chances this weekend and then it happened..The 1,2. I cannot get over how strange it is/was. I'm a McLaren fan first, but it is pretty sus.

Watching that wreck, the first thing that popped into my mind was I couldn't wait to read the comments here haha.

To me, it was a racing incident but if fault is to levied it's on Max. I like Max such as many of you here, but Sir Lewis had that corner and Max pushed it. The stewards are correct.

Maybe. Yet, I respectfully disagree. Plus, You didnít mention Lewis just exited pits on cold tires and should have given a bit more room.

Regardless, this is racing and a close call like that doesnít deserve a penalty.
