Re: The Official Sir Lewis Hamilton thread

After seeing Lewis post race yesterday he's probably grateful for the summer break has come. He mentioned after the race that he thinks it's due to long covid. With that being the case do you think we could see a scenario where the FIA ask him to go through a medical? He was dizzy post race it coul...

Re: The Great Big 2021 A > B > C Thread

How could that have worked prior to this season when Verstappen had only had non entities as team mates where you'd have no idea how to place them? Genuine question. As I don't understand. I had (apparently wrongly) assumed that Riciardos rating was so high due to beating Vettel and Verstappens rat...

Re: The Great Big 2021 A > B > C Thread

Whilst I don't believe this is Ric's representative speed. His position in these comparisons was probably also artificially high because of his 2014 against an under performing Vettel though. I would say clearly artificially high because of 2014 but not by a huge amount, this year as to be seen as ...

Re: Driver(s) of the Day - 2021 Hungarian Grand Prix

I originally went for ocon and alonso, but since learning teams could talk, and merc decided to keep lewis out and and not pit, i dont think its fair to penalise hamilton in that regard. So ill add lewis as 3rd best drive I agree he could have passed alonso quicker, but i think hamilton knew alonso...

Alonso, and only Alonso. His defending from Hamilton was epic, proving that you actually can defend from a much faster car without forcing him off track or hitting him. Great stuff.
Alonso banged wheels with Hamilton which helped to ward off one attack.

Re: Driver(s) of the Day - 2021 Hungarian Grand Prix

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? As I said he literally exceeded the expectations of what you said when I added the caveat if Verstappens car is healthy after the red...

Re: Driver(s) of the Day - 2021 Hungarian Grand Prix

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. And I get the impression that a lot of Ham's race pace today was down to him - his pace was fantastic. Unfortunately no good direct comparisons with Bottas n...

Has to be Bottas. The precision with which he managed to hit Norris to then hit Verstappen was the kind of shot that Ronnie O'Sullivan would tip his hat to. On a more serious note Ocon has to be a contender of course. Alonso, Hamilton, Verstappen, Vettel there are contenders all the way down in man...

Yes. I am surprised nothing has been mentioned as yet. After the Bottas carsh, Charles could have come out in second after T1.
They probably took the view that Bottas triggered everything that came after.
