Re: Forum verdict on the Hamilton/Verstappen collision

This has to be the biggest crock of manure I’ve seen on here! 😂 Just last year people were praising Hamilton for being one of the leanest drivers ever. I realize he’s had moments where he’s pushed the envelope and taken things too far, but those moments were few and far in between. Bahrain 2014, Hu...

Re: Hamilton/Verstappen British GP 2021 Collision Discussion

Red Bull are whining far too much - they've been unlucky that them and their driver came off far worse but..... it is Formula 1 - these things will inevitably happen, next time it might b...
