Which leads me to clearly unpopular opinion, but I’ve seen leaps and bounds in Max’s maturity in the past few years. Sure, he’s not there, but I’ll be damned if he isn’t incredibly talented. This will be the year of max versus Lewis all year and Lewis humbly admitted it. I have strong dislikes for both characters, but on track they made today great.

Of course I’m biased for team mclaren and I think they had a stellar continuity of success from the 2020 season. We will continue to see them go back and forth and push for that 3rd place spot.

AT was a horrendous showing today, but Yuki is HOT out of the gates, I expect to see them heated battling for 3rd

Ferrari did better and AM worse than I expected. Seb caused that crash, leclerc and Norris fight is something I hope to see repeatedly again this year as well.

Boys, I think we’re back!

It's not which type of penalty, it's the fact that his ill conceived passing attempt earned him the penalty in the first place.

We'll see if Max learns from this.

No doubt strategy call by the team to come in was a bad one when Max wanted to stay out.

That was pretty epic racing from Hamilton. He played the rules just right and obviously his driving was excellent. Max will learn from this one.

And Lando! Yes!

Forgot to mention Mazespin lmao.

Mate I missed NOTHING !

MAX has nothing to learn anymore . He's the only driver with the ability to beat HAM !
And probably he will do it as well , with 22 races to go .

I agree that MAX exceeded the track limits in turn 4 = > pic # 1

But HAM exceeded the track limits as well ,by going too wide "INTENTIONAL" just to close the door ! => pic # 2

The Mercedes undercut was really genius . But MAX closed that gap from 10 + sec. on HAM anyway ...
We didn't saw that in the last 5 years ! Unseen !

The Red Bull's race and tire strategy failed tremendously . That's why MAX lost the race !

We'll see what Hammy has to say in the coming races ...

Hey, if only the slowest driver was able to pick up 5s per lap...

Oh really ?
So why HAM isn't on the inside from turn 4 ? The inside line is the ideal line !
Coming out from turn 4 , the next turn is turn 5 and is going to the left ..
So ,What is HAM doing extremely to the left ?

Well mate . Your door must look otherwise...

..Plus there was the diff problem that gave tricky traction out of the corners which without would have increased the gap to hammy more and also the 'average' tyre stop of 2.7 seconds didn't help also..

Of course to push Max off, another dirty trick that makes hammy 'look' in the clear.

My friend . That isn't difficult to understand .

It's not the cleanest way .But it includes racing...

We are having time enough in the coming races !

The RB16B closed the gap in a decade of Mercedes dominance .
My friend .That really matters !

It was to block Max, not push him off. Itís called defending. This is a wheel to wheel race, not a time trial.

How many times has Max bumped tires with other drivers in a corner or pushed them off entirely? Thankfully Leclerc learned to push Max back real quick.
