Re: Vettel's post-Canada behaviour

It was pretty childish and not what you'd expect from a grown man (the sign swapping looks like it was taken straight out of primary school) but I wouldn't hold it against him. I never have an issue with a sportsman showing a bit of passion even if it does border on infantile. I've often defended Le...

Re: 2019 Canadian Grand Prix Race Thread

Hamilton squeezed Ricciardo but then left space; however being squeezed towards the wall was enough for Daniel to back off). For me that is the real infraction. Watch it again. Ricciardo didn't back off because he was squeezed. He backed off because the line he had been left was wet and he had slic...

Re: Canada 2019: Vettel Penalty

Re: Canada 2019: Vettel Penalty

Option 3 is the only sensible one for me. Seems harsh but it's the stewards sticking to the rules.

He has no one to blame but himself, unfortunately.

Re: 2019 Canadian Grand Prix Race Thread

. The Autosport article does seem to show that (as expected) the Stewards knew what they were doing.

Re: 2019 Canadian Grand Prix Race Thread

The footage clearly captures Vettel correcting an o...
