Re: The Official Fernando Alonso thread

Just read parts 1 & 2. The bit about Hungary in part 2 is very interesting, never heard some of the detail before! If true, the allegation that he wanted the team to let Hamilton run out of fuel during the race, is a sign of a massive character flaw. A different man would have taken the higher grou...

Re: Appropriate penalty for Max's actions?

Ironically the engine issue Lewis had probably stopped him getting past Ocon himself, which would have seen him be a buffer between them.

Re: 2018 Brazilian Grand Prix Race Thread

If this had not been a back marker trying to overtake the race leader, but simply a fight for position, who would have got the penalty? In my opinion it would have been Max. Is there a written rule that switches the blame when the race leader is involved? I honestly don't know, that's why I'm askin...

Re: 2018 Brazilian Grand Prix Race Thread

Whatever the rights and wrongs of Ocon trying to unlap himself, I find it idiotic of Max to just slam the door shut on a car that was pretty level to him going into the corner. Seriously, where did he think Ocon was going to go? I also find Charlies comments a bit strange when he says it doesn't mat...

Re: Verstappen vs. Vettel Japan 2018

Looked like an opportunistic dive bomb to me. Looking at Max's on-board, he'd committed to his line through the corner well before Seb slung it up the inside. Even if Max had taken a wider line, Seb's closing speed was such that he was very likely to make contact with Max. If someone had done the sa...

For me, I think this season has confirmed that Lewis has the upper hand between the ears. I fee they are both close in terms of speed, but Hamilton is mentally stronger.
