That decision - I can’t even


agreed! :x

The Renault engine seems very competitive at the moment (since Monaco) and a few steps ahead of honda based on that back straight. e.g ric defending gas+DRS during the early stages. Ver had better overall lap time and newer Mediums when he overtook Ric but looking good for Renault.

Thought Hamilton earned his boos in Montreal - you can't claim you don't want to win that way when you were straight on the radio whining to the stewards. There's only one reason you did that.

He's just such an utter poser.

Loved Seb's changing of the numbers after the race as a small act of defiance.

Stewards shat the bed on that one.

Loved Kvat's ballsy dive on Sainz at turn 1. Loved Gunter telling KMag to shut the fuck up.

But overall that race was just so dissatisfying.

Ugh.

Legit never cared about F1 prior to ASR. Pretty sure Mesa promptly told to like Daniel Ricciardo and go from there.

Started with watching Rush and following Niki's story then that was it. Interest in F1 secured.

Now I'm staying up late to catch the race, watching the latest paddock pass / driver interviews, and following all the twitters for the latest updates. Just recently binged the F1 series on Netflix with my gf and now she's relatively hooked (big fan of Daniel Ricciardo).

Anyway, Niki's story is truly inspirational. If you haven't already I'd suggest watching this playlist full of interviewing Niki not too long ago;

Please apologise to your gf on my behalf. Haha f1 is a disease for the other 50%

Ballsy move by Vettel changing the numbers. Agree with the above comments. What was Seb doing pushing his car backward after the race?

Good on him for doing that!

As for the car pushing.

Commentators said it was to avoid the post race interview with Martin and all that jazz.

But I swear officials were pointing/waving for him to stop the car with the rest of the other drivers. And one even got in front/beside him tell him to go backwards.

Think the officials there were confused as to where Seb was meant to go with his car. Not sure it was a protest that the commentators made it out to be. Walk to the Ferrari VIP area after defiantly was though.

Unpopular opinion: Seb absolutely deserved the penalty. He could have straightened the car up and left room for Lewis, instead he let it slide to the track edge to block him. I'm quite sure of this having watched the replay, various angles, many times.

As to whether or not the rule itself is fair is another question, but it exists and was reasonably applied.

Also, if you haven't seen it, the twitter spat between Rich Energy and Whyte Bikes over Rich copying the stag logo is piss funny.

Riccardo makes a fair point. Hamilton did the same to him back in 2016, but no penalty was applied then? You could reasonably argue that Hamilton already had the car corrected by the time he then decided to squeeze out Daniel.

Inconsistency in applying the rules has always been an issue in F1 and every sport. That's yet another issue.

Also, Seb's move was very deliberate. Split second yes, but a conscious effort to block Lewis. Which is why he got a penalty...

In all honesty. I'm not sold Seb's move was deliberate or not.

But his natural instinct would of been to cover off Lewis.

But the debate for me is, does it deserve a penalty? When Lewis admits he would of done the same.

And for all of us watching, it was a race battle. Seb made a mistake. Lewis went for a gap that was closing and brake to avoid contact.

He was still go to continue on the fight. There was no contact.

What they did do was take away the battle. Which is what we're all ultimately reall pissed off about,

The 'appeal' can't possibly have any effect. Merc will just argue they would have pushed for the win but held back because they didn't need to.

These things need to be decided after the race.

Yep, which is why the whole thing is pointless, a waste of time, energy, money and mental hope.

It won't be overturned, the FIA can't let it happen, it'll just open the flood gates.

Its a sport, once the penalty is given or not given and the game/race is over, all decisions are final.
