Re: Did Hamilton attempt to block Rosberg at the end of Q3?

I gave a warning earlier in the thread that it was to not discuss the details, or the ins and outs of the Monaco incident. Whether Rosberg was guilty or not or the circumstances of the incident are not to be discussed here. The only way in which the Monaco incident is relevant is whether or not it ...

Re: FRIC suspension

i wonder if anyone dares to run a less advanced version... Yeah I was wondering this. Suppose they just disconnect the front-rear link, as it were? Or some other parts?

Re: Did Hamilton attempt to block Rosberg at the end of Q3?

The tyre load data may very well have shown he could have made the corner late but he didn't want to risk it going into the barrier so he sensibly went up the escape road to avoid that situation from possibly happening. It was a split second decision, he didn't know if he'd make the corner at the t...

Re: Did Hamilton attempt to block Rosberg at the end of Q3?

Mark Hughes reported his opinion that Rosberg was guilty. Hughes believed that the stewards hadn't seen all the car data that could have been available to them. However the stewards had seen enough to decide that it was a mistake only. That's all that matters at the end of the day. Everyone claimin...

Re: Did Hamilton attempt to block Rosberg at the end of Q3?

Strawman is pretending someone is arguing something they're not. You accused me of using strawman, as part of trying to pretend you're not treating the stewards as infallible when you brazenly are doing exactly that. OK, so you've looked up the definition of using a straw man. Now you understand th...

That's the exact same pictures. He moves his left thumb a split second before he goes to pull for 6th (or whatever gear he was aiming for).

Vettel should have got a penalty for "causing an avoidable collision". He tried to run his car run out to the left as if Hamilton wasn't even there. Glad that Hamilton didn't back down and showed him who's boss. Which is quite similar to what Hamilton did to Rosberg in a more agressive fa...

It was a bit Seb to make that contact. He's okay on track mostly, but those little sideways moves when the place is lost always seem a bit spiteful to me.
