Re: Hamilton/Verstappen British GP 2021 Collision Discussion

Couple of things: 1. Marko says that their new evidence will show the incident in a new light. 2. When asked what an appropriate penalty would be, Marko said something that would have prevented victory, such as a drive through or suspension. https://www.autosport.com/f1/news/marko-new-red-bull-evide...

Is there any way Red Bull could claim some money back or get a budget increase for the season if they can prove that Lewis should have received a larger penalty?

Nonetheless, Verstappen’s race pace is better than his qualy pace anyway. I'm not sure I agree with that. A hallmark of a driver with better race pace than qualifying would be to frequently challenge for wins in races where they were uncompetitive in qualifying, and we don't really see that from Ve...
