Can anyone explain what Hamilton did differently to Alonso or Ocon or Vettel or any of the top 10 drivers which only left him exhausted & dizzy?

Was it an antic to neutralize booing fans?
It's a tough GP and he was fully pushing through most of it. The others wouldn't have been.

Did Lewis have a car 2-3 seconds faster than the entire field? Or did he have a tyre offset to the field based on how early he pitted and then taking the extra stop?

Hamilton had the pace to lap the entire field easily today. He really should have won. Didn't make it a walk in the park to pass cars though.

NOTHING in the regs to extend the Red Flag period to allow further repairs to cars - again, the Stewards seem to have invented a new regulation.

Sooo loads were told to box. What is even the rule then? Perhaps teams thought that after the red flag it's not a formation lap as the race has started... Perhaps it isn't.

But if not why are they investigating

What Ricciardo is doing in that Mclaren is a joke.

Half the front runners out & he still finishes out of the points almost 30 sec behind a damaged Red Bull.

He’s got serious problems in that car.
He also very likely had a badly damaged car.

Re: 2021 Hungarian Grand Prix Race Thread

5 grid place is an extremely weak penalty. Also what about Stroll? I reminded you of this. Hulkenberg in Spa one year? I don't think he got much of a penalty at all. Rosberg was expecting 5 places or so. I think he should get at least 2 penalty points in addition to that though. Hulk got 10 places ...
