Johnny and Felipe Baby about to shank each other.

 

Johnny is basically spending an hour explaining his entire career here.

 

But he's actually gas lighting us now.

 

"There's one man avoiding incidents, Lewis"

 

Apparently Herbert was drunk at Silverstone.  Not blaming Lewis for that, didn't at the time but it happened because he went for the risky move and didn't back out of it.

As for the crash, 50/50 for me. Lewis did squeeze, but it was a move he’d have done to him by Max earlier and he wasn’t going to be the one to yield. Max probably would have made the corner okay if not for the silly kerbing on the inside that launched the car.

 

One of those that you could argue either way. But, two things: firstly, no-one was hurt thanks to the Halo. That’s the most important thing. Secondly, it adds more spice to the title battle, which is great under the proviso that both drivers have a bit of a think and realise that although not yielding in a world championship battle is probably to be expected, with the cars being as hugely quick as they are now it’s going to be pure luck if we make the end of the season with everyone intact.

Perez doesn’t think his penalty was justified

We leave it all on the track! A podium on the track and an unfair penalty took it away from us. We are going forward, there is a lot of championship left and we are more united than ever


He hasn’t got a leg to stand on with that complaint. Busy week for Albon ahead.

Ok the whole FIA text is here.

 

https://www.fia.com/sites/default/files/decision-document/2021 Italian Grand Prix - Offence - Car 33 - Causing a collision.pdf

 

Quote

The Stewards heard from the driver of car 33 (Max Verstappen), the driver of car 44 (Lewis Hamilton) and team representatives, reviewed the video evidence and determined that the driver of Car 33 was predominantly to blame for the collision with Car 44 at Turn 2.
Car 44 was exiting the pits. Car 33 was on the main straight. At the 50m board before Turn 1, Car 44 was significantly ahead of Car 33. Car 33 braked late and started to move alongside Car 44, although at no point in the sequence does Car 33 get any further forward than just behind the front wheel of Car 44.
During the hearing the driver of Car 33 asserted that the cause of the incident was the driver of Car 44 opening the steering after Turn 1 and “squeezing” him to the apex of turn 2. The driver of Car 44 asserted that the driver of Car 33 attempted to pass very late and should have given up the corner either by backing off sooner, or by turning left behind the kerb.
The Stewards observed on CCTV footage that the driver of Car 44 was driving an avoiding line, although his position caused Car 33 to go onto the kerb. But further, the Stewards observed that Car 33 was not at all alongside Car 44 until significantly into the entry into Turn 1. In the opinion of the Stewards, this manoeuvre was attempted too late for the driver of Car 33 to have “the right to racing room”. While Car 44 could have steered further from the kerb to avoid the incident, the Stewards determined that his position was reasonable and therefore find that the driver of Car 33 was predominantly to blame for the incident.
In coming to the penalty the Stewards emphasise that they have only considered the incident itself and not the consequences thereof.
 
 Competitors are reminded that they have the right to appeal certain decisions of the Stewards, in accordance with Article 15 of the FIA International Sporting Code and Chapter 4 of the FIA Judicial and Disciplinary Rules, within the applicable time limits


So it all hinges on Max not having enough of his car ahead into 1 then.

Interesting take considering that Hamilton would have been on colder tyres with less grip and therefore likely more cautious into 1 while Max at racing speed still slowed enough for the corner.

 

Same penalty outcome as Silverstone, but, for me anyway, much less clear cut.

"I did see Max get out and just walk by. I found that a little bit surprising, because ultimately I think when we go out, and when we do have incidents, the first thing we want is make sure if the guy that we crashed into or we collided with is okay.


A short view back to the past…

Watching the celebrations while still in hospital is disrespectful and unsportsmanlike behavior but we move on.

Difference is that Lewis had been told Max had walked away from the incident whilst Max wandered off literally whilst Lewis was trapped in the car? 

 

I did think it was a bit off he didn't seem to check on the status of the guy who's car he had crushed. That being said, Lewis was equally determined to reverse out whilst Max was getting out of the car!
