  1. I don't understand people kicking Lewis today, seems unjustified.
  2. It's brought loads of new fans to the sport/soap opera.
  3. I think it's an interesting question, but impossible to answer
  4. Am I the only one that loved it?
  5. Maybe for wear data later in the race?
  6. For me its just a no win. Nobody did anything wrong and no option available to the stewards was fair.
  7. Both have to give up the natural racing line though, the outside loses the apex and the inside loses the exit.
  8. I know it's been accepted forever but I never really understood why the inside car is allowed to squeeze on exit.
  9. It's going to be shit isn't it, and will be won by a silly incident or a puncture or something? Everyone's hopes are way too high
  10. I think apex is confusing here. Often the optimum line is with a late apex (because cars brake faster than they accelerate) and you actually start accelerating/removing lock long before you clip the apex.
  11. In that case though Lewis could have left a car's width and Max would still have driven off the track. Though maybe if he'd already started braking it was too late for that.
  12. Depends what you're maximising for, an extreme "slow-in fast-out" line would lead to a super-late apex like that. I don't think there's anything dictating what line/apex you must use. Copse was a bit different because Lewis was never going to meet the inside kerb at any point. (Though personally I think he ended up in that position because he expected Max to move out and take the racing line, so he ended up entering the corner too narrow anyway). But I agree with this, he didn't leave a car's width, despite Max being essentially alongside, which is the fundamental spirit of the rules I think. I'm also pretty sure Max wouldn't have left a car's width either though in the same position.
  13. This is something that I’ve always found unclear. To me Max is alongside enough to be entitled to a car’s width, I’m not sure why so often it’s claimed that the car in the inside has a right to squeeze the outside car off the track, even if 90% of the time the inside will win anyway.
  14. He made the apex! He didn't leave a car's width on the outside though I grant you.
  15. I think the period where Lewis was holding behind on hards was during Max's second set of mediums though?
  16. https://www.planetf1.com/news/helmut-marko-saudi-arabia-incident-apology/ “In any case, we are just looking ahead. We want to win in Abu Dhabi and so win the title. We will do everything for this, but we will not take any unfair actions. “In Saudi Arabia, we already had the pace to keep up with Hamilton. The track in Abu Dhabi should be more accommodating to us.” Is that true? I remember Lewis being able to easily hold the gap behind Max on hards when Max was on mediums, and looked like he could have pulled away if in front, before all the shithousing started. Max did chew up his first set of mediums though so maybe was tyre-saving.
  17. "Lots of my friends are Max fans!"
  18. Oh I didn't mean "despicable behaviour of all of his fans"! I thought it was obvious that it was a small minority but should have made it clear. The accusation was that when he found out about this tiny minority he didn't exactly condemn it.
  19. Hehe yeah, I now immediately regret saying it, but it's been playing on my mind because I do trust the person who told me! And it's not exactly like there aren't other hints of it: https://www.autosport.com/f1/news/why-do-verstappens-offensive-comments-get-a-free-pass-4977790/4977790/
  20. Racism, essentially, was the jist I got.
  21. Very rumoury too but a friend of a friend who works for Red Bull said Max doesn't exactly discourage some of the more despicable behaviour of his fans.
