  • So, is the time Lewis gained By going off track at turn 4 not a lasting advantage? Im Guessing Max would have caught him sooner and would have more overtaking chances of lewis did not do that so.... it kinda looks like a lasting advantage to me. Anyway super hyped About Max and Lewis this year!!

  • Max should have made Lewis go offline when he gave the place back... It would have preserved his tires and put sand all over Lewis's

  • My take: The rule wasn't changed mid-race. Mercedes played an ALPHA move by faking that radio message. If Ham didn't exploit it for the last 10 laps, wouldn't matter at all, but it would put a question into RedBull and Race Control's minds. And obviously overtaking off the track is always illegal, this time going off track while NOT overtaking was legal for everyone. It was just pure foolishness from Max and RedBull to not take advantage of the rule. F1 is all about exploiting Grey Areas to your advantage and this was not even grey, ffs. Lando, Lewis, Bottas, Latifi, Leclerc, everyone took advantage.

  • Its simple, they said they weren’t watching turn 4 so they probably didn’t pay much attention to Lewis going off but when RB screamed it on the radio everyone heard it and they clamped down on it, simple math.

  • So Hamilton wins by a half of a second but gains 2.9 seconds by going wide at turn four all those times. Not a lasting advantage? Bottas goes wide at turn four and gets the fastest lap/extra point, not a lasting advantage?

    MeltingRubberZ28MeltingRubberZ2812 giorni fa
  • I don't get it why you think Hamilton gained advantage by going off track at turn one... Almost all his laps were slower the Max's. He lost time doing that, by burning his tyres quicker. And at the end how many laps weren't enough for Max to take him down with way fresher tyres... Hamilton won fair and square and will win all other races 👏

  • 5:44 Max said "The whole weekend we couldn't do it" Not "I thought we couldn't do it". They KNOW it's illegal. He's referring to practice and qualifying. They had lap times disqualified if they broke turn 4 track limits. Also, Hamilton broke track limits AGAIN in the final straight I believe on one of his laps, that was definitely supposed to be a 5 second penalty on my take especially after breaking turn 4 29 times.

  • So, it's fine MB gets a lasting advantage for a lot of the race, but as soon as RB start doing the same thing, no one can? Maybe just take back the time Lewis gained from going there, and let Maxy take the win, since he wasn't allowed to take as much advantage as Lewis throughout the race. It seems incredibly MB favored since they gained the most advantage throughout the race. The more I hear it explained, the more unjust it sounds.

  • Just make the white line THE limit. If it should be allowed to use the given curb, paint the line on the outside of the curb instead of the inside. Problem solved, everything easy, clear and consistent. "Looking" or "not looking" at track limits in selected parts of the track or different sessions is just pure nonsense.

  • I don’t agree with this and what most people are saying about this. Max was clearly ahead going into the corner, and then went off track during turn 4 which was deemed okay to do if you weren’t passing. He made the pass in the previous DRS zone, not during the corner. Lewis was behind going into turn 4 and if he overtook while going off the track, yes I would agree he would of been at fault because he was behind. I agree with Max’s initial instincts on this, he shouldn’t have given the position back.

  • It’s not a different issue ! If you got 10 racer doing it one way and 20 other racer doing it the other way ! It is an unfair advantage ! we don’t talk about grass tractor week end racer that do it for fun ! People put money in racing ! Vast sun for f1 ! I m sorry but in the last race , my opinion is Hamilton did not win !

  • Hear the non sense ! They got a message on paper that they were not watching turn 4 and later change their mind while the racer are racing ! That was also reckless ! you don’t change your mind while a race is going on gees ! This is not New York City traffic N if they need more action force racer to respect their lane when racing is going between car instead

  • .1 per lap. So 29 lap that end up being a lot if you look at the qualification time !ok let me reword it !So fia expected all team to pass the line !fine ! Why the change of mind then ? Why after 29 lap warning Hamilton to stop that ! they are not looking at turn 4 right ? (At least not for that ?)see the double standard !it add a layer that is not necessary when fia can’t even make racer respect lane ! Fish oils focus on making sure racer respect a chosen lane ! Hamilton had chosen the inside ! And suddenly he moved to the side of verstappen ! Verstappen was a nice player he went wide in the straight ! to give Hamilton a chance to pass gio!check the distance between the inside curve and Hamilton ! The inside is the ideal line right ? So what is Hamilton doing in verstappen line ? we all know what he is attempting ! He is attempting to block verstappen ! He does not care one bit for lane !last week end was not racing ! at least not on Hamilton car ! Hey verstappen ! Stop being nice ! Next time ! Don’t move ! stick to your lane ! If you had done that ! Hamilton would have been forced to brake! What Hamilton did in the curve is reckless ! And that is not racing

    Oved ApprOved Appr15 giorni fa
  • The rule did not float around ! All got the piece of PAPER EITHER VIA DIGITAL OR ON PAPER ! It’s online gees ! everybody have read it ! Yes even the racer themselves! They knew they could pass the line fia had said so on paper ! and at lap 30 or say ! Oups no Hamilton you can’t pass the line ! that was deliberate from fia ! Fia knew the time delta of each racer ! This gave an unfair advantage to Hamilton ! since he was expected to have a tire on the red and white

    Oved ApprOved Appr15 giorni fa
  • Hamilton was benefited by English and black (in times of so much anti-white racism). Max passed it to Lewis and then he jumped the boundaries like Hamilton did 30 times. Same Bottas to get a lap record. **** If the situation is reversed, Max jumping the limits 30 times, harassed by Hamilton and beaten in the same way ... Lewis was not asked to return the position. I am 130% sure.

At least now we officially know that fia hate racing ! Qualify first and play the nice little freight train game till last lap !

    Oved ApprOved Appr15 giorni fa
  • Hamilton pushed verstappen out! If verstappen stay in the lane , both car crash because Hamilton does not have the tire ! What Hamilton did was intentional !fia need to stop th! is gray zoning!mercedes cheated on the keeping their own lane ! Fia even warned all team last year ! And there ergo again this year with the same problem ! You guys are lucky I only listen to highlight because I bet 50% of racer were subject to the same tactic ! Force them keeping the line adopted ! If there is racing involved and they keep to the ideal line ? Penalty ! It’s that simple , because you know they plan to block

    Oved ApprOved Appr15 giorni fa

  • Hamilton runs wide at turn four 29 times gaining an average of 0.1s each time. That comes to 2.9s over the length of the race. He then wins by 0.7s. So did him running wide at turn 4 not give him a "lasting advantage"?

  • Honestly, I think Hamilton won that one - I just can't get over the audacity of this *****. When he immediately called it out as Verstappen overtook him after gaining a lasting advantage of just about 3 seconds over the entire race, it reminded me of those s*ithole kids who always called their mommys when they were losing to get the win anyway. Just consider, people, that playing according to what is legal is not equal to doing what is right. There's a reason terms like "sportsmanship" exist - And Hamilton clearly has none of that, even though he won "according to the rules".

  • The amount of people saying that Max didn't overtake Lewis off track is insane. Why does this always happen with Hamilton? Every single time an incident occurs with Hamilton people always judge him differently to all the other driver's. Its been like this since day one.

    M TM T15 giorni fa
  • The conversation will always be around the interpretation of "lasting advantage" and the fact that someone was allowed to do a thing for half the race, but when someone else is told to do the same thing, suddenly everyone is threatened with penalties. No one questions Max overtaking outside track limits being illegal, but that the other rules being changed midrace might have contributed to him only having that opportunity to overtake, and otherwise, might have been able to do so in a legal (and lasting) way.

  • Having areas of the track you can use, but not overtake, is simply not acceptable. Without exploiting the unenforced track limits Hamilton would not have been ahead after Verstappen's pit stop. That is as much an overtake as Verstappen's move. Frankly a lasting advantage is anything improving your lap time or position in any way. This is absolutely not on. Masi is entirely blame, a driver is paid to exploit any advantage possible.

Oh.!! thats right RED BULL shooting them selfs in the foot again, RED BULL have a history of complaining ALL THE TIME, They obviously didnt read the full race notes & complained about Hamilton & lets have it right, it wasnt only Hamilton going wide at turn 4 either, But RED BULL complain & Hamilton stops doing it, Max catches Hamilton & uses the same corner they have been complaining about to over take & actually complaining AGAIN that they had to give the place back , Dear RED BULL STOP COMPLAING
