    There was some commentary about not being able to touch the RB car due to a red light on it (no idea where or what that refers to) - what was the reason for that?

    Perez had a bad weekend, BUT, taking fastest lap away from HAM and the 1 point keeps Red Bull up by an enormous lead of 4 points in the constructors!

    LEC, great drive, especially when the F1 broadcast predictor thing said HAM would pass him in 2 laps on the re-start or so!

    If you're on this forum you love F1, but apparently most of us love or hate VER/HAM. Still amazes me that Max has "lost" a win by passing off track, "lost" a win with the flat in Baku, and maybe "lost" at Silverstone (no points at least) yet is still leading the championship.

    Was really hoping Bottas was going to fight HAM, but he didn't. Started 3rd, ended 3rd, apparently he's the driver Mercedes want to back up HAM, so maybe Mercedes keeps him?

    With people mentioning Prost/Senna at Suzuka, well, hold that thought, and let's see if the final race or two of the season sees them both with a chance to win, and we'll find out who wants the championship more. If you need to finish to be a champ (you're trailing the other driver in the last race) you avoid that collision and fight to the last lap.

    Are you seriuos? All a sudden Max is an angel on the track? Max has been agressive with Hamilton all season. Look at the angle of Max front wheels vs Leclerc's. Both Max and Ham was agressive in this case and Max's bullying backfired on him. If it were Hamilton you all would be singing a different tune. Ham served his penalty. Stop whining, take this result, and move to next race..

    I think the callous way he put on a huge show of celebrating amidst his gaslighting narrative that he was fighting back from an unjust penalty to triumph demonstrated that his brand built on the concept of overcoming more adversity than everyone else is the only thing that's important to him.

    Horner was right, that one was a hollow victory. Lacking any tact or contrition, Wolff viewed it as "a win is a win", so apparently the manner in which you conduct yourselves to be competitive is not all that important to Hamilton or the Mercedes team.

    Those are their true feelings that they're doubling down on. The only contrition either might feign will be because they perceive brand damage occurring that could be mitigated by a solemn appearance to deliver a heartfelt show of emotional maturity and empathy for all those who risk their lives to put on a good show, with plenty of throat clearing, etc. And then immediately back to winning at all costs.

    Hamilton's "fight back" narrative while Verstappen was in hospital was a watershed moment for me. He's not a gentleman.

    All the best,
    Andrew.

    A purist may call it a hollow victory, but not the pragmatic soul that I am.

    Hamilton is back in the saddle to fight the rest of the season, and gave a warning to his rival that he won't be pushed around.

    So Max has better think twice before trying another move on Hamilton. He will learn his lesson, or not ...

    It's the end result that matters, and not the next corner. Hamilton knows how to lead a championship, Max has yet to learn it.

    Verstappen is no gentleman. He's just in the right for this particular incident.

    If you murder someone who has murdered someone in the past, you're still a murderer.

    Yeah but none of them murdered anybody. Let’s bring this back to earth.
    They are both rich guys making well over 40millions yo drive a car.
    This is a sporting event not a social event. They are just athletes.
    End of the story.

    There's another forum here on F-chat where it's stated "not for the faint of heart". This applies to almost every level of "professional" racing and especially F1. But that sure doesn't stop the whinging, does it?

    Look, it's all fun and games until one of them dies or gets seriously injured. That'll be the end of the story.

    I doubt it will come to that and I'm 100% certain that if a repeat collision happens between the two, the stewards will come down very harshly to keep the aggression of the two ____________ (insert your preferred noun) and their respective teams in check.

    What's really disgraceful is all the racist commentary and the British fans cheering in jubilee for a human possibly losing his life in a high-impact crash. F**k those pond scum.

    Agreed. Fans will be fans. Germans did the exact same to hakkinen when his tyre exploded at hockenheim…
    Sadly nothing new.

    Curious, were you disappointed with the way Charles comported himself in the post race? He was certainly ebullient after his fine seconds place and did not hesitate to yuck it up with Hamilton. He had a ringside view on the Max/Lewis shunt, yet also made no overture of concern regarding Max in the podium interview.

    I've seen mention of the crowd supposedly cheering Max's accident, but I saw no clear evidence of the on the world feed or the fan videos. There was definitely lots of applause when Max excited the car...but before this?

    I do remember in the 2019 the orange army in Germany was wildly cheering with joy as Bottas spun off at high speed, even before the car came to a rest.

    If Hamilton does it again then he needs to have a severe penalty but Max hasn’t committed any offenses (yet) so assuming the roles are reversed and Max spins Hammy will Max get a slap on the wrist like Hammy? That’s where the FIA are in a quandary.

    7. Perez suffers like those before him in Red Bull’s second seat

    Sergio Perez appeared to have the Red Bull support role nailed after picking up the pieces to win in Baku and then claim a deserved podium at the next race at Paul Ricard.

    But after being in the wars in Austria against McLaren’s Lando Norris and Leclerc, Perez’s performance in the British GP had shades of the struggles Pierre Gasly and Alex Albon endured before the Mexican came to Red Bull’s rescue.

    It must be said it is down to fine margins, but qualifying behind Leclerc on Friday night set the wheels in motion for Perez's downward spiral. Trapped in the midfield battle at the start of the feisty sprint race, he was caught out by dirty air and spun off, to be condemned to the back of the grid for the main event.

    Despite Red Bull F1 car tweaks made in a bid to aid his retaliation in the grand prix, but also meaning a pitlane start, Perez was making progress until he got stuck in DRS trains and then got impatient and collided with Kimi Raikkonen.

    A P10 finish was as good as it was going to get until Red Bull sacrificed that solitary point to pit Perez for softs to take the fastest lap point away from Hamilton – even though finishing outside of the top 10 meant he wouldn't earn the point himself.


    Perez has slipped back to fifth place in the standings and is set to play ‘who can be the best support driver’ against Valtteri Bottas for the rest of the year.
