Re: 2021 Hungarian Grand Prix Race Thread

On reflection going from last to third place on such a difficult place to pass after the cock up at the start was a really good result for Hamilton, if the undercut on Ricciardo and Max fails then that just doesn't happen and it was really close, 2 or 3 more laps I think he wins the race but I very ...

Is Stroll really just going to be let off again?
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.

Max was completely handicapped due to driving a broken car. It was worth claiming 1 point.
Hamilton would have parked that car for sure.
Probably a valiant effort by Max to get a point.
