Re: The Official Lewis Hamilton thread

I think most of the mature and objective fans accept that team orders are part of the sport. IMO Lewis and Vettel should 100% be given priority by their teams as they are in a title fight. The others are not. I fully understand the last race from a team point of view (not necessarily mine, but that'...

Re: 2018 Russian Grand Prix Race Thread

It's a complex and grey area which unfortunately FIA don't always spell out properly in detail to audiences/fans. But when defending you should leave room. You cannot force a driver into the wall or off track. Obviously their positions relative to each other, the part of the track or even straight t...

Re: 2018 Russian Grand Prix Race Thread

It was a move in one direction. But more than one, and the second one was quite too far (and this is the contentious part). There was no room. Part of Lewis was already off track and that would have for sure led to a crash if he didn't back up at the last possible second. Vettel himself has admitted...

Some very shabby logic here. Lewis passed Vettel into a corner, after a very minor mistake (which Vettel admitted) gave him an opening to gain using drs.

Re: 2018 Japanese Grand Prix Free Practice & Qualifying Thre

Ferrari were just fine in Silverstone. I think they'll be OK. If they don't perform I don't think it will be because of track layout. I think they did a lot of work on this type of scenario, which was somewhat of a weakness for them last year

Starting second, assuming there's no incident and you run to order, costs you 7 points. Crashing out on the first lap repeatedly, your car breaking down and you ripping off people's diffuser and playing Mario Kart at races costs you well over 80 points. Just saying ;)

Alonso is a great driver, but from time to time his temper is ridiculous. How well would Hamilton or Vettel act if they were flailing around in 15th place every single race?
