    Everyone complaining about Hamilton but you clearly forgot how Verstappen behaved in the past ...

    No offence to Hamilton, but as a neutral fan, this is totally unfair. Maliciously causing someone harm in any other sport is a red card so why isn't disqualification in this race an equivalent? Even accidentally causing harm thru negligent recklessness is a red card in other sports.

    I have been following F1 since 1983. 40+ years. I am sorry to bust everyone's buble but if you analyze the video fram by frame at one point LH is almost wheel to wheel. This means that the other drive shold be turning wide and not shutting the door. Admit you have given the other driver the inside line and has taken advantange and has been more agressive than you on the brakes so ease up , go wide and try to turn in earlier to get a better drive off. Racing ABC.

    There was nobody's fault, it was an inevitable racing incident. The worst thing in formula 1 these days is all the crying and whining. Verstappen went out (thankfully not injured) Hamilton took his penalty and the race is on. I'm bored of people whine in Formula 1. I hope F1 won't turn to a cartoon. Red bull started so strong this year and finally we see some action but they cry like babies all week....

    It's a corner held with high speed that's why the collision was intense, other than that it was almost same as albon's crash this is my opinion. 10 second time penalty is sufficient but not more than that, redbull trying to be cocky and ruin ham's reputation

    I think if Hamilton wasn't an extreme activist, the FIA would have levied a heavier fine. Unfortunately political pressure dictate many decisions in today's activities. I think it's out and out Racisms .

    I ask myself would Max have turned in on "Max". There you have your answer to who was "predominantly" to blame. Basically Max got "Verstappen'd". The rest of the season will tell us if Max has learned winning isn't just about playing chicken in every confrontation.

    I am not a Fan of Hamilton or Verstappen. Look objective on the Situation and you can see, that Verstappen has got so much Place at the left side of the Curve. Ok, Hamilton maybe could drive a little bit more on the right but Verstappen goes inside the Curve an Hamilton could not react fast enough. This is how i see this Situation. A normal Race Accident in my Opinion.

    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.

    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.

  • 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.
