Re: Driver responsibility while overtaking

Even if everyone accepts your view on all of the above it still does not exonerate Prost from turning into a car alongside him. Nobody can just back out of an overtake into a hard braking zone. How can any driver back out of an attempted out brake overtaking manoeuvre? Exactly, but that's not the o...

Re: Driver responsibility while overtaking

Assuming he thought having just a front wing ahead effectively means "being" ahead, then I'm not sure how he thought this could work: that would mean that when the inside car is braking at full blast, it is OK to just collide as Prost did - because the inside car can't suddenly disappear. But indee...

Re: Massa on the top 5 drivers he raced against in F1

Everyone cheats, probably true. But Senna, Prost (and bear in mind, Prost is my favorite driver, above anyone on the grid today) and Schumacher were heroes who cheated, and that matters. A generation of drivers grew up idolizing people who didn't respect the rules: Schumacher almost certainly got h...

Hamilton will retire as soon as Mercedes is no longer the best car by a big distance. Ferrari closed the gap a bit, but it would been another spectacular failure if Hamilton didn't win the title this season. Hamilton has always raced F1 in a car capable of winning races unlike Seb and Fernando. He'...

There is not much to say, honestly. He is quite confident he would beat Daniel, and I definitely think he will if they found themselves in that situation. They both are great all round racers, but Lewis clearly edges him.

Moreover, Daniel is not going places if he keeps getting beat by Max
