Re: 2021 British Grand Prix Race Thread

That line he took with Leclerc was a perfect exemplification of how he SHOULD've done in the first instance with Max. Hamilton winning this one with his main rival out of the race, due mainly to his mistake, doesn't do justice to F1. Did Hamilton take a different line or did Leclerc take a differen...

Re: 2021 British Grand Prix Race Thread

That definitely looks like Ham fault (not often is that the case I must say). IF he was fully on inside touching the kerb then we would tak about it. But he was like half of car from the apex. Plus he was never ahead of Max. Now what's understandable all this happened at some 180mph so its really ha...

Re: 2021 French Grand Prix Race Thread

Man that was tight. Great race. In hindsight if Ham wouldn't make that mistake going wide there he probably would've keep P1. But great tyre management for him. Judging how Mercs were all over Max's gearbox in stint 2, I think they had the faster car. RB chance here was that they were faster on str...

Ridiculous by Bottas does he want the Red Bull to win the race, Perez moved over for Max and then Bottas pits so what was the point and then Bottas is pitted to take the fastest lap off Hamilton. Did Bottas know he was pitting? I don't know that was merely the irony of what he did, when Perez helps...

Max should've pitted for the 2nd time when Lewis pitted. RB lost the race there. Yeah, the displayed estimation showed that Max would've been some 1,5 sec in front, don't understand why RBR didn't took advantage of that, as that would've been their only chance, with same tyre age they could just ab...
