His fastest time had gotten him to P11 but that lap time was deleted for exceeding track limits.
That makes sense. Thank you

Re: Hamilton vs Schumacher and their contemporaries (split from Official Hamilton Thread)

Imagine that he had agreed to play second-fiddle to Alonso that year. Even a repeat of Moss-Fangio would have lead to an epic fallout regardless. Hamilton was too close to Alonso (i.e. winning multiple races on his ability unlike Fisi, Piquet Jr or Massa) for him to be comfortable, even as team lea...

This is a valid point I guess, but I was not really trying to oppose this. Just the idea of comparing a half year against a full year as the original post did between 1999 and 2016. MS didn't run for 44% of 1999, you can understand that that was a much smaller pool than a full year. That's with Win...

Verstappen defending, I can't remember many examples if I'm honest I'll be very impressed if Verstappen can drive off into the distance in the wet. I expect Hamilton to be sat on his gearbox for most of the race. If the quali is wet, I expect Hamilton to be ahead and Max not being able to catch up.

It's also quite cool to read Toet's article about what was going on with the "driver aids" in 1994. He has some very nice articles, I'd urge you to give them a look. Effectively (to my understanding) they created the driver aid effect, but legally. As other teams too that year.
