You cant be ahear when your front wheel touches the rear wheel of the other car.

The pressure on HAM to win in the UK was too high so that he decided to start and play dangerous games.
He brought it up again in the post-race interview about being alongside. In-race he said he was ahead which is crazy.

Well we have a season now, because the quicker RB was starting to run away with the championship. Funny to see the max and hammy fans go at it.

Hopefully we get a Nico vs Lewis type season ahead.

Max doesn’t seem like the type to let sh*t go either. I see him racing Ham aggressively for the remainder of the season. It is game on now. Penalties will be a plenty from here on out. Just have to make sure if you are going to get penalized, the other is out of the race.

If HAM wasn't to blame he would not have gotten that penalty.
Plus penalty points on his licence.

Hammy must suffer from double vision if he said he was ahead of Max at that point before contact was made, not for nothing hamcheat is a name that sticks for the dirty driver.

An impact of '51 G means a serious chance to get a 'concussion !

Meanwhile I'm waiting for more news from the hospital...


Thank you 'Dramilton !!!

so Red Bull asked a race ban for Lewis?

so basically RB wants to walk easily to championship without a challenge..

dear Marko and Chris;
should Lewis drive with one hand only as well? or Lewis should drive only by 160hp electric juice during races? or should win races on 3 wheels AGAIN?

its absurd so childish.. surprised? no.. they re just 2 like-minded folks its normal for them to ask such a thing.. Lewis got his penalty and served it..

i told my opinion earlier that it d be 10 sec penalty.. he served it.. i hope, i really hope Max got his lesson for such close battles that nobody has to cover his ass to avoid accidents always.. im so glad he is fine.. he MUST take some lesson out of this weekend.. he had 32 points lead before reaching mid season but he thought he d lost everything at the beginning of the race.. slamming Lewis to the wall hasnt paid off eh?

thank you Max Verstappen for igniting Lewis and Mercs back again..


it was such a great race that i really wasnt expecting Lewis to win.. i thought he could be 2nd or 3rd at most.. such a great great drive again from 7 world champion.. he fully deserved this race.. and if the race d unfold on medium tires probably Leclerc d win anyway.. thank you Lewis making millions happy on TV screens..

Leclerc was on fire during the race especially on mediums.. i have no idea and actually even probably Ferrari couldnt figure out where that race pace came from.. unlucky for Sainz otherwise he d probably pushing Bottas towards the end..

Norris was a bit lost during this race.. i was thinking he could do better but i guess that was all the package was offering.. it was nice to see Ricciardo on higher spots as well.. but im not sure Ric ll recover this season.. he is not settled in to this car.. but next year there ll be a new concept for everyone.. he can fly high again..

such a great Sunday.. thank you Sir Lewis Hamilton!!

RB should appeal the leniency of HAM's penalty for the probable intent of such a move.

Doesn’t make Mercs car faster. They still have the inferior car at the moment especially at race pace.

Unless Merc can find something at the factory, the points deficit will grow again barring Max is medically ok.

Max definitely had some wind knocked out of him after the crash. He sounded awful on that radio call.

Hardly surprising, if it was one of US then we would prob be stretchered off unconscious.

What sort of person decribes this as a 'great race', and a 'great sunday' when the race leader was banged from the track (at 150mph or so...) and is in the hospital?!?

Last post here due to the fact that this forum will be a circle jerk of those who dislike Hamilton. Plain and simple.

"Hamilton was desperate" ....with more than half the season to go?.....Fuck off.

Verstappen is notorious for getting elbows out, as is Hamilton. Today was the end of backing down as far as I can see from Hamilton's POV.
If he had been a bit more punchy in the first part of the season Verstappen would not have been ahead at the end of the first lap in many of those races and the VER club wouldn't be pulling each other's pud every weekend.

See ya.

yes definitely.. more speed has to be extracted from both cars asap.. on full downforce tracks like Hungaroring Merc's deficit can diminish but at least now they have higher motivation for it..

No it's not crazy. Because the dude is a egotistical crazy person. Go have a listen to Behind the Grid podcast with him. I was so confused because he was speaking the English language, but he also wasn't at the same time
