I'm happy these side by sides are back, they seemed to disappear for a while but they're good to see.

Good idea for a thread btw.

What so the teams aren't allowed to express a negative opinion on the stewards? To quote Kevin what a load of ******.

That guy was perhaps quite glad Hamilton knocked his phone. It’s 4 years old rather than being brand new so there’s a bright side there and the value must have gone up when Lewis signed it :lol:

I would question if he's allowed to examine the Mercedes car like that as in laying hands on it?

Come on, he touched the cars to see how much difference they had in the front wing clearance, he didn't tie a led balloon on the Merc... Nothing to see really.

To me it looks like he put his foot to see how much space it was underneath, then used his palm to measure it. It is clear to see
