    I hope VB can climb back up and give LH a fight for the title.....I feel though given the time of the season and where everyone is at in pts. that Mercedes will play him as a #2. He got a contract renewal for 2018 already, so I say game on once your behind the wheel...provided it does'nt take out either one of them.

    Vettel has alot of work to do....a herculean task in todays F1. Forza.

    Bottas simply isn't as fast as Hamilton. He had some shining moments eg. in Sochi where he is the master of that track and in Monaco where Hamilton partied too hard. But overall he is not as fast. And I'm sure MB plays his as the #2 driver. He is a Barrichello by another name. Not a bad thing when you sit in the best car of the grid. Just as Rubens did.

    Strange that some people here don't accept that the start fracas was caused by Vettel chopping across the track and blocking faster cars from overtaking him.
    It looked for a second that he was going to escape without punishment for eliminating 3 cars with his manoeuvre, but he crashed soon after.
    Instant Karma, it seemed.

    I disagree, I think that Arrivabene has done a fine job this season given the loss of James Allison.

    this was a complete racing incident. Literally every pole man moves over from the start and you throw in Kimi's unexpected good start plus night time and the rain and it's the very definition of a racing incident.

    A penalty would be a joke

    Yeah, never ever seen a pole sitter want to defend his position before, it's really was a surprise eh?

    Christ, wtf did anyone expect him to do, wave them all through on the off chance one or the other might tap him. All drivers at the start have to rely on the skill of those around them, and that those around him will respect each other's positions. If you add in lil Maxine who is so hyped up on his caffiene drink he wants to win the race in the first 100 yards regardless, then you have a recipe for disaster, as no one can argue given the number of starts that have involved a Maxine punt/slice/crash of one level or another since he came into f1. Even when he gets away with it, there is collateral damage to most starts when he is involved, as he will never lift. In racing, he may have skills, but we won't often see them. All racers can simply keep their foot in, I myself used to do the same, and with the same results, I'd hit people quite often, and sometimes, I came out in front, other times I went into a wall, as such, I never made it to any decent level of racing because you can't win championships having the odd glorious race and a few comments of '**** he's fast when he gets going', because it's the time you are quick without drama that win you championships instead of just races

    AS i said, the trick is not sticking your car into it, it's to come out alive from it without ****ing everyone elses race!...so far, Maxine is missing the point most of the time.....i'll just say this, if it was Ricci is Maxine's shoes do you guys think the result would heve been the same? i don't!

    In the German GP, Ralf hits Rubens who then hits Kimi.

    In the Singapore GP, Max hits Kimi who spins out of control and crashes into Vettel. At no point does Vettel hit Max. Not the same no.

    The instant Karma comes from an out of control Kimi hitting Max into the 1st corner.

    Schumacher-like manoeuvre... Not that everybody else including Lewis did that as well crossing lines at the start to guard their position...It was pretty normal...

    How often did Lewis an Max actually compete with each other? The RB and the Ferrari are more even in their characteristic than the Mercedes and the RB and so Max was more often near Seb and Kimi than near Lewis.
    How can you draw such a conclusion just because Lewis was not able to pass him ONCE???

    The 'fracas' was caused by contact from Max to Kimi. Kimi had the position by half a car length. Max put his wheels where he should not have.

    .....I can't understand how you can believe this drivel. Vettel moved over....Max reacted instinctively and Kimi had no chance to avoid all three of them. Vettel fault. End of.

    Every single of them three made mistakes and that is why it was a racing incident at the end. Max had as much share in this as Kimi and Seb had...end of
