Re: 2021 Hungarian Grand Prix Race Thread

This may be a stupid question. But what happens with the trophies when it happens this late if anyone knows? Do Seb and Hamilton return their trophies. And then they get given to Hamilton and Sainz? Or do they just give out an additional second and third place trophy. Or does Hamilton just keep thi...

Re: Who will win the Championships?

I've felt this entire season that Mercedes had been intentionally complacent, shifting a very large portion of their resources into next season, and would turn up their performances with ease if they found themselves in a tight spot, and that's exactly what happened with the Silverstone updates.

Re: How will Max and Lewis race each other for the rest of the season?

Hamilton knows how to place his car in relation to his opponent's to make sure the opponent crashes out while minimizing his own risk, so I don't think he'll be overly cautious. A 25-0 is significantly better than a 25-18 or 18-25 in the wdc hunt so it's worth the risk.
