You know what is nice mate ?
That 7Hammy has to fight for every single point in this season ..

Your Hammy is been put under pressure by MAX from the beginning of this season in race 1 !
That's why he's making stupid mistakes like in Imola and this weekend at Baku.
Cruising to the next victory is history !

MAX's hammer is talking !
Time for a change ...

Very unfair to blame RB/Max for this. The fact that he set the FL is also no proof of him pushing - the fuel load simply got minimal towards the end of the race.
You're still short 15 years of my time period watching F1. Ridiculing my assertion won't make if going away.

And if you haven't heard them say, "take it easy on the left front or the right rear, etc., I'm not impressed with your 30 years of watching F1. You're like the person who was in High School for 8 years and graduated at 22 saying they're an expert on the subject.

My 30 years in senior management in Fortune 500 and Dow 30 companies and helping to take a company public as well as selling one for just under 800 million after 18 months are my references for this. Further, I've spent time at speed on 4 FIA Grade One tracks.

You are a RB fanboi and will defend what they say to the bitter end. RBR is a toxic environment who destroys their primary assets, human capital, writ large. The fact that Max and his toxic father, Jos fit in perfectly tell me so much about the organization as well as it's fans. Carry on.

Only MKSixer had a clue. That's why he hangs out on this forum and accomplished engineers that know nothing are on the payroll of RB
Didn't you see his post here prior to the accident where he warned us about it going to happen? Oh wait...

Bachelor's wives and maid's children are well taught I guess.
You guys really don't know that much about F1. It's kinda why you're fans of the most toxic team and most toxic driver and his father.

If you haven't seen leads dwindle to nothing on purpose to bring the car home, you can't really say you're a knowledgable F1 fan.

You can't really fault RB on this. Before Verstappen's crash. They were aiming for a 1-2, not a 1-3. Street circuit is where RB get the most pts out of Mercedes.The deltas between 1-2 was 4.5s and 2-3 was 1.3s at the time of crash

If Verstappen's was slowing down to 2-3s delta to 2nd. Perez will be backed into Hamilton DRS zone. At the time, Mercedes was only slower in Sector 2; corner 7-10. Not the 90 degree corners, not the straightaway.

The 2nd question is just bc Stroll's tire blew up. Can you assume it's gonna blow up for everyone? No. Aston Martin doesn't talk to RB or know why it failed. Even now Pirelli is still trying to find out the cause. No other drivers were compensating bc of Stroll's tire.

There was no visual the RB car drove over any debris, there is no deflation or extra-wear(u would hear it on the radio). So RB felt they were in control of the situation and drive as usual. Verstappen sometimes disobey team orders, in that moment there is no reason to.

The number 2 seat for any second place team will always be a tough seat to get/keep no matter the team or rhetoric that goes with it.

Pick your poison: (i) get the opportunity to drive and lose it (albon and gasly) or (ii) stare at that carrot dangled in front of your nose and never get the opportunity (Russell and Ocon).

Different methods, different levels of finesse but equally as effective.

I enjoy both for different reasons, Max’s (RBR) rawness vs hammy’s (Mercs) calculating methods. Both are effective.

Hammy was emotionally distressed after the race, maybe waiting for the tears to stop. No shame in seeing some real unscripted emotion from the champ.

Now for some levity.

“Baby” Lando and Vettel.

Even if Max had backed off a little it would not have made a difference as the tyre would blow at top speed anyway (if not that lap then the next) and Sergio would be backed into Hammy DRS risk.

Take it easy MK6. You are a knowleadgeable member of this forum but for once we just don't agree. No big deal.

If you can recollect some of my previous post before, I am definitely no RB/Max fanboi. I am only a fanboi when it comes to football. To me F1 is like a brotherhood where every single driver deserves respect for his skills and for putting his ass on the line.
And I love the great rivalries so it's great to have Lewis, Max and hopefully Charly and Lando fighting for the win. I appreciate all four of them.
