Re: Sprint Qualifying - first impressions?

So I guess you could...

Re: Forum verdict on the Hamilton/Verstappen collision

I wouldn't read too much into Horner/Marko's comments. They're just trying to make it as big of a deal as they can to put pressure on Hamilton.

Same as in Austria where Horner was keen to brush off the Norris on Perez incident as just racing, since Norris was holding Hamilton up at the time.

He had, and he was given the space due to him and then some.

He then proceeded to drive into the opponent who had left him more than enough space.

Quite clear two things: Hamilton understeered quite significantly and was nowhere near the apex (or, rather, racing line). Verstappen was ahead on the outside at all times, and left racing room for the racing line on the inside. I think it was therefore quite easily Hamilton's fault. Then, the ques...

Re: Forum verdict on the Hamilton/Verstappen collision

Hamilton's fault. Going into Copse at that tight of an angle with a car on your outside will always end in disaster.

A driver of his experience should have known that and backed out, he didnt and took out the guy on his outside, unusually poor driving from him.

I've been thinking something similar. Bottas seems to have more bad luck when Hamilton is having a bad day. An interesting coincidence.
