Re: Forum verdict on the Hamilton/Verstappen collision

Hamilton, recovering from 10 second penalty (perversely for getting hit by main opponent) to chase down a surprisingly fast Leclerc.

Re: Forum verdict on the Hamilton/Verstappen collision

There’s overhead pictures that show that Verstappen left Hamilton approximately two cars of width down the inside. The idea that Verstappe...

Max turned right hitting Lewis’s front wheel when Lewis was up along side, there is nothing more to than that.

There was no mad dash down the inside, just hard racing.

Re: Is bottas time up at Mercedes.

Mercedes need to be thinking about succession planning, Bottas - whilst a solid and on his day fast driver - is not a team leader, just not at that level. I really think they need to get George in now, along with Lewis, and think about the next 6 years or so.

Not sure where all the Alonso love is coming from, he was beaten by Ocon who hasn't really shined. Because Alonso qualified significantly lower and made a lot of race gains.
