What Hamilton did to Rosberg is similar to what Max did to Hamilton in Imola, what Max did to Leclerc was different, what's interesting is I believe that Rosberg got penalised twice on that same corner for doing the same thing, once with Hamilton and then again with Max, Max does it and it's nothing to see here, also what happened to making the apex which is the crux of Hamilton's penalty against Max..
What exactly is the difference between what Verstappen did to Leclerc in Austria, and what Hamilton did to Rosberg at USA 2015?
Well, the obvious difference is that Verstappen physically hit Leclerc to push him off track, whereas Hamilton just bullied Rosberg. It also wasn't turn one of lap one, where we know the stewards tend to be more lenient.
But both were crap moves.
Hamilton actually did hit Rosberg off circuit, they touched wheels, and in slippery (wet) conditions one touch is enough to send a driver wide.
I always find it very amusing when Hamilton fans show such moral outrage at Verstappen’s driving, when he learned all his dirty tricks from Hamilton.
This has to be the biggest crock of manure I’ve seen on here!
Just last year people were praising Hamilton for being one of the leanest drivers ever. I realize he’s had moments where he’s pushed the envelope and taken things too far, but those moments were few and far in between.
What I will say I never liked that he did was force drivers way wide in order to maintain position, which is something almost every driver outside of Raikkonen has done many times. And I’ve always said I don’t like it from anyone. Rosberg took that move to an extreme that was centered around its intent and making the corner was of little concern to him so long as he pushed Hamilton wide, and it ended up biting him in his hind quarters.
I think forcing someone around the outside is fair play so long as the intent is to make things more difficult rather than near impossible. We’ve seen plenty of both but we do t need the latter and that goes for every driver, including Hamilton, though he’s not done so in quite some time, as far as I can recall.
And honest loss of grip doesn’t count as such, as that is a mere consequence of carrying a touch too much speed and is generally unintentional. I mean the purposeful squeezing to the edge of the track and beyond.
Don’t go making disparaging claims like this to suit your own agenda.
