Re: Official Valtteri Bottas Thread

I thought that Valtteri put in a uniquely poor showing today at the 2021 British Grand Prix. He started off by letting both Charles and Lando by at the start. He took way too long to repass Lando and then spent the rest of the race having nothing for Charles in the Ferrari. When Lewis was taken down...

Re: Inconsistent penalties (or lack of them) on first lap incidents

The 10 second penalty that Lewis got for the first lap incident seems very much in line with the other penalties that the FIA and the stewards have been handing out this year. The thing is, I think hamilton is the first one to get a penalty in the first lap in the last couple of years (excluding fa...

Everyone wants to see side by side, elbows out racing and that's what we had on lap 1. Sooner or later someone was going to lose it.

Now we have a whole bunch of folks complaining that we had a great battle and their favorite lost.

Freddy and Kimi both benefited from the "Sprint Race" by improving their grid positions. Checo pulled a bonehead move and a dangerous re-entry. and cost himself about 15 grid positions for tomorrow.

Re: Tyre failure or over run tyre.

Remember in 2018 when Valtteri Bottas was leading in Baku by over a second and had a puncture on the main straight not so far from where Max and Lance had their trouble. Makes me wonder what it might be about that part of the track that seems to foster tire failure.

It's a real shame that we didn't get to see what the last round of fast laps would have produced.

Leclerc was obviously fast all weekend so far but he is also the one who brought out the red flag at the height of Q3.
