Max moved 3 times weaving down the straight on the restart to defend and again dive bombed and pushed him wide. People can't compete against Max when he drives to a different rule book. Real fans have been conned this season by the handling of it all.
A massive rule overhaul is needed now.
Glock stayed out on slicks in a wet race. What happened today was not following the rules. Hamilton was faster by quite some margin. The safety car won and the bent stewards won it for Max.
You know my position I'm really not sure why your asking more questions. Using this forum as a gage of credibility is a bit odd though given its location and user base.Amazingly delusional and the vast majority here would think the same. So you think Max drove better than Lewis today? And you think the safety car restart was handled properly despite the rules not being followed as written?
It's not a good look for Masi to have Horner saying "We only need one lap" and then suddenly throwing the safety car procedure in the bin to generate a racing lap.
As I said have a watch of the Merc videos its why they make them. As I have already said, its a race of mitigating the risks and choosing the optimal strategy.
If Lewis had pitted he would of be been behind Max, based on the evidence of this track, the difficulty in passing in these aero cars, Max’s driving “standards” and Lewis having the faster car in clean air why would you pit?
All that is without FIA making the rules up as they go along! That’s why it was correct the call to stay out. Again listen through the Merc retrospectives on YouTube throughout the season if you want to know more.
It’s easy to be bold and brave when you’ve have nothing to lose.
Them pitting to cover Max early was the largest mistake, had mediums with huge life left in them and dropped an 8 second gap because of being interfered by Checo.
Obviously Max blew it on lap 1 but even if he got track position there he has to pit and Lewis can win on med->hard alone.
Merc absolutely blew this race is Lewis loses
