Re: 2018 Belgian Grand Prix Race Thread

Done and dusted. After lap 1 it always was going to be tbh, no matter who was ahead , if anything I'm surprised the undercut was so strong, without Verstappen in the way that could have been close. Another safety car is the only way we maybe see a lead change now. Nope. The Ferrari is substantially...

Re: 2018 Hungarian Grand Prix Race Thread

From what I can see at no point was Vettel fully ahead. If you take the front end, probably he was or maybe he wasnt. As a bare minimum, Vettel still was more than substantially ahead to pick the trajectory he wanted, more so than (example): 1. A Hamilton's blocking move on Hulkemberg on a strait w...

Re: 2018 Hungarian Grand Prix Race Thread

My main problem with Vettel remains that he went off the racing line to cut off Bottas, which is why he has to take some of the blame. I don’t buy the narrative that Bottas wouldn’t have made the corner. He looked a bit out of control but only because he didn’t expect Vettel to take that line. His ...

For sure Vettel didnt have a good qualifying session.

Re: 2018 Hungarian Grand Prix Race Thread

To complete the pass he would have had to make the corner cleanly with the lead. He certainly COULD have done that had he left more room or had Bottas backed out but the fact is that he had not yet completed the pass. Does that rule applies to Vettel only and nobody else?

Yes, passes on the inside will keep occurring for different reasons: just outright faster car, or having fresher tires and better grip as result of that. But Bottas had neither of those 2 (Vettel had them, together with track position). Bottas wasn't passing, Bottas was defending. Defending what ex...

Vettel was under no obligation to leave space for Bottas, it was Vettel's corner all the way . It was for Bottas to make sure that he didnt end up hitting the car in front. If this was not the case (or if it is as you say), then surely Mercedes would have picked up on where they left 3 weeks ago ab...

Bottas anticipated Vettel leaving a couple of car widths, Bottas would have made the corner then. Vettel would have also braked later if he was takng the wider line giving Bottas even more clearance.
