    Oh come on

    The previous lap max was well over half a car length ahead at the apex, BUT gave LeClerc room on the outside, avd the ferrari beat the red bull to the next corner on sheer power.


    On the incident max was not ahead at all and gave him zero room, by taking the racing line and pushing (there were two contacts) the Ferrari off the track

    man some of youse really hate proper racing, crying for penalties for a tiny tire touch is silly.

    why didn't leclerc cover the inside line anyway? max was always going to come steaming up the inside.

    brundle interview with mattia after the race was classic.

    Yes, that worked well for them last time. Perhaps they can use the analysis from Ant this time instead :D

    max lost control of the car and hit Leclerc.
    Also, how can the stewards write in their decision that there was no space for both the cars? This is pure trolling from them.

    Quite the contrary I love proper racing

    Where everyone follows the rules.

    Touching wheels is racing, deliberately pushing someone off track is not

    And to those who say it was not deliberate, watch the previous lap, loads of room given to leclerc, who then beat the red bull to the next corner.

    Max learnt from that mistske, so pushed Charles off the track so he could not get ahead again

    No, last time they didn't take the stewards to the court. This time they must do it and tell the FIA that their participation from now on is under question if they don't change the excrement decision.

    This is why I said pure trolling from them on two points.

    Current Concorde Agreement is only till December 2020. Wouldn't surprise me if Ferrari left F1 then and concentrated on other motor sport.

    I understand you have a one-sided view, but bare-faced lying about clear facts is just stupid.

    One-sided view is that of the stewards, if you think. Anti-Ferrari decisions all the time.
    I see it as max lost control because he almost stopped the car in the corner and when wanted to go further to the right, he couldn't.
    But this is actually irrelevant. The point is he did gain unfair advantage by leaving no space. And this the stewards confirm it - there was no space. Which is against the rules and the fairplay.
    What should have Leclerc done? max hit him and risked both to go DNF.

    To be fair as they has been comparing LeClerc to Schumacher most of the weekend, and we know Schumacher would happily hit someone to prevent them winning, even if it meant he didn't finish, then LeClerc causing max and himself to dnf would probably have been the proper finish to the race lol :)

    Well done F1 stewards for doing the correct thing and letting Max keep his win. A good decision.

    @4K8KW10 our of interest, what would your race score be had Verstappen got punished and Charles handed the win?

    You gave it 1/10... Honestly, nothing you saw today was entertaining or exciting?

    Correct decision. Verstappen had won the corner before the apex and went to take his normal line. LeClerc kept his foot in, turned into Max and then cried foul.
