I'm not a Hamilton fan in general but this is fair. Verstappen would say the same if the shoe was on the other foot. No penalty.

Bull! Hamilton ging veel harder de bocht in met Max dan bij Leclerc en H kon veel meer naar binnen.. Max stuurde in omdat hij en de bocht naar rechts moest maken en ervan uitging dat H remde omdat H anders nooit met die snelheid die bocht kon maken. In mijn ogen opzet van H!

Layman here, but at the angle Lewis goes into the corner, he would definitely force max off the track. see how far out he gets at 7:12.

Everything said about Hamilton's determination can be said about Max. Hamilton had no intention to make the apex and the corner. Almost next to Max means Max is ahead and controls the corner. I don't think F1 has ever said "Driver on the inside controls the corner". Hamilton is going to fast, bad angle to apex and wishful thinking. 100% Hamilton's fault.

As a Max-fan I was biased and / or had seen too many analysis that went the other way. But Joylon Palmer's clear explanation made me change my mind: it was indeed a racing incident. And the RB-fury was -with hind-sight- over the top

I feel Max trusted Hamilton,he didn't want him to get that corner,he turned flat right,i feel he should have stayed wide if Hamilton was not giving it up&let him make a wide turn& while he can cut inside afterwards. Hamilton surely should've stayed near apex,but he didn't, he didn't improvise when Max turned flat,he let the wheel stick. It is a racing accident,but i feel it's more of Hamilton's fault than Max's,as max was ahead& Hamilton had options,he didn't wanted to turn short, he turned wide after collision

Hamilton could not have been any tighter going into the corner and doesn't drift left. Max has plenty of room on the outside, but takes the corner at too much of an angle that he cuts across the front of Lewis' car and then forwards into Hamilton's front left tyre. I don't understand why it isn't Max being blamed. Max has the 30+ point lead, had the space, didn't need to take risks, but cuts across and gets too close to Lewis.

My thoughts on it are Hamilton has backed out every time pretty much this season . He had to match Max's agressivenous. Both could easily have gone out. I thought Hamilton's penalty was harsh. Will be interesting to see how they both drive in the coming races

I think the penalty was well-deserved, but I agree that it was time for Hamilton to show that he will no longer back out.

Of course, you will think it is a racing incident. Hamilton is a legendary driver, missing an apex given that he basically knows everything about the car and so on seems a bit off. He should have been more cautious because he was occupying inside and he was not. Bring honest people...

I think Max and Lewis are great, both knew going into the corner one of them needed to give up, they did not - reminiscent of Ayrton Senna. So far Max only criticised Lewis for celebrating whilst he was in hospital. Horner’s criticism is unfair, but with the budget cap, they are playing the system like all F1 Teams do, if Christian is right then post ‘no overtaking’ signs at these corners, if the situation was reversed, Max would have done the same! This the way F1 was years ago.

I don't get how it's slighty Hamilton's fault as Palmer says, since the rules say that if the front wheel of the car reach the rear wheel car ahead, then the corner belongs to the car from the back and leading car has to give him space. That's what Wolff sent to the stewards via email as he said in the radio.

Even though Verstappen is my favorite driver, I am more in the camp of racing incident. It hurt seeing this, but Lewis and Max were racing hard. It is noticeable though how often these run ins happen with Lewis when fighting for the lead. 2x with Albon, ending his career and now with Max. And the fact that this is at least the 2nd time he has been lucky with red flags so that his mistakes get negated is getting a little old. Hopefully the rest of the season goes down to the final race with hard and clean racing between the two of them.

What we've learned from this? Always keep the inside line, so worst case you can hit the outside car, eliminate your competitor and get away with a worthless 10 second penalty. FIA has set a very bad precedent with the handling of this dangerous move from Hamilton.

I feel like the penalty was really rash and in justified. Max didn't give up the line and got into a wreck thinking Hamilton would let of the throttle or hit the brakes and he didn't. We all have are opinions but iv been racing for a while and I've seen this plenty of times and it was Max's over aggressive stance on the turn

At last! a common sense analysis of the incident. Lewis had his entire car up the inside, not just a wheel as Christian Horner asserted. At that point Lewis' steering is visibly hard right, trying to get to the apex; Max turns in on him knowing he was there - Lewis's wing is visible as Max turns in and if anything it is Max's fault. Nobody has the right to the racing line if somebody else is already on it. The truth of the matter is that Lewis did Max, fair and square. Lewis should never have got a penalty and justice was done by him winning it. Christian Horner's credibility is shot to pieces.
davel101 2 dagen geleden
I look at this in the following way. As Max couldn't see Hamilton due to the design of modern F1 cars, Hamilton is in control of what happens. It comes down to this for me, as Max couldn't see Hamilton, how could Max avoid the accident? Hamilton oculd have / should have done what he did during the sprint race and back off. wI do think it was a racing incident, but a very dangerous and expensive one. I aslo think that Hamilton isn't used to not being the quickest and his usual calmness was missing at the start of the race.
TheBlue028 2 dagen geleden
This is just insane imo, in the event of a collision the driver who was in the wrong or made the error that caused the collision should be held responsible regardless of how big or small the error. The ONLY time it shouldn't be penalised is when the driver is not responsible for the error like a mechanical failure. This whole era of 'racing incident' is just bizarre and 100% will end up being abused if it hasn't already.

Perhaps all these people who are closely involved with F1 know its rigged and are trying to keep a lid on it, hence their "racing incident" conclusions. Have people forgotten how Nico parked his car at monaco so Lewis couldn't complete his lap, thus preventing him from getting pole?

9:15 and hamilton also was driving slower there, plus Leclerc said after the race he was giving lewis more space because of the accident earlier and if he had not to understeer he still had it so... I think max had the corner, and lewis should have braked to not get understeer and have a tighter corner. but when cornering lewis wasn't alongside anymore also, 14:48 (you see lewis behind max through the corners because of less wing) lewis had a less wing less drag set up so he was slower through corners and more likely to understeer, and max had more wing so was faster in corners so that made max holing corners at high sped more easily than lewis that's why i think its lewis fault be cause he knew he would understeer in cops corner at that speed wich he did so

This is a very por look at the crash it was partially a racing incident but Lewis determined whether it was going to happen or not he was poking in the inside on a high-speed corner and another thing to look at is the line of the Ferrari behind he was 3 feet closer to the apex that was the inside line if Lewis ran that like max assumed he would it would have been a clean corner Lewis crashed him 100%

the right rear tire on verstappen's car had the least amount of weight on it from the weight transfer and accelerating out of the corner, while hamilton's left front had most of the weight of the car on it. that is why hamilton made it through the corner knocking wheels and verstappen did not.
Sean Karl
Sean Karl 2 dagen geleden
That's a very keen observation. I think you are correct. It would be interesting to analyse other similar crashes to see how they turn out. I wonder what the effective weight difference would be in this situation. Maybe the teams are aware of this phenomena. If so Max Verstappen should have been extra careful not to make contact with someone coming up on the inside.

Appreciate you. The view of Verstappen's turning in twice shows he choose to squeeze Hamilton, deceiving himself that he could continue bullying. He tells himself everyone will be a gentleman to him; while he alone should be aggressive. Daniel: "Is that who I think it is ?" Engineer: Yes Danny we confirm that.

@Jay1 Live And you know that because you’re an experienced F1 driver and you’ve analysed all the data? I guess that little knock took all the speed out of his car, that must be it. Weird how he was cornering just fine before the hit, perhaps not on the most efficient line but still cornering. But here’s a question for you. As an experienced racing driver, have you never taking a corner away from the racing line without crashing? I sure have and I’m just an amateur.

What a joke: Hamilton was at fault but you know he was trying hard so it’s justifiable that he doesn’t try to avoid a crash. Max is 33 points ahead so he should be the one to give Hamilton a chance! Poor Lewis is behind the championship race. Because of that it’s Max’s fault, even though Lewis made the mistake and drove with an attitude of a mafia boss. Well done mate! You are a legend! Congratulations on getting that new shiny Merc for free! Oh that didn’t happen yet? Well, may be at the end of the season *fingers crossed*

I feel the penalty should have been harsher. With a 10 second penalty you are just allowing drivers to race less responsibility. The thing is if they did not crash we would have seen a more exciting race with them changing positions overtaking fighting the entire race. FIA should have stricter rules about not colliding into each other

Hamilton won't let someone better race too long. Verstappen is a championship leader so Ham had to take care of him. We all know Lewis is untouchable because FIA is on his side. They are afraid to punish him. He could leave F1 and numbers would drop. And he could accuse them of racism.

I think this is one of most unbiased look into the accident and he has a similar view with Charles Leclerc. Hamilton went a little wide and Verstappen went in a little hard. We all know both of them are fighting for position hard and we can see clearly Hamilton does not want to be involved in any accident.

@Jip that is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. If you've ever been at that speed in a car or bike you would understand that no racer in Lewis's position would drive to crash knowing the risks involved. I don't even think Maldonado was that crazy. The point here is that both drivers were not going to yield and since Max had gotten used to other drivers being cautious of him, he expected Lewis to back off which he rightfully didn't have to. Now Max will know to think twice.

If he was unbiased he would have known that Hamilton does not make mistakes, and that he knew exactly what was going to happen and clipped Max knowingly. He even explains later that Hamilton did not risk as much with Leclerc. He preferred causing a collision to losing. Hamilton makes no mistakes this was intentional.

With Grosjean both cars were out that's why there wasn't a penalty... Lewis was off the apex by a decent fraction with Max and with leclerc it shows he could dri e on the curb that is what makes it look deliberate although I don't believe it was..
