Bottas did exactly what we can expect from him. Be there or there about. Too fast to lose the podium, too slow to win the race.
Not sure losing to a Ferrari is what is expected from him? This should have been an easy 1 + 2 for Merc - He really is losing Merc points even when they are effectively free.
Not a chance. That's why they need to get rid of Bottas and put Russell in there.You think Russell would have lost almost 8 seconds on Ham in the same car like Bottas did towards the end of the race?
The moment Max was clipped, there was about a second, maybe two, before impact.
I presume you lift off the accelerator and hit the brake for starters.
Is there anything else you need to do , for eg, is there some kind of fuel shut-off switch ?
You're misunderstanding me. Perhaps I'm not being clear.I disagree, I think he should have had a better result today considering he didn't have to be Hamilton's wing man.
Sky has always been Pro Hamilton, anti anythign that isn't Hamilton. Naturally they would love to keep it that way.Sky reports tiptoeing around this incident. At least Button admitted that putting your nose there is not what you should be doing. So it does sound like Horner has a valid point and I think when Horner says "it looks desperate" might be valid.
Mercedes my have won this one, but the sprint race just shows that actually if Max was still in the race, they probably wouldn't have won it. I still think Merc are on the back foot this year, and still have an uphill fight to go.
In my honest opinion, you guys are a bit unfair.
The crash sucks and I'm sure neither driver wanted contact. You're going on like Hamilton intentionally took Max out which I highly doubt is the case. I do think he intentionally tried to make a move where he probably shouldn't have, but this idea that he went for Max is a bit of a stretch. Had it been Bottas it would have been a bad incident. Hamilton does it and it's a conspiracy to try kill max or whatever the hell you okes are on about.
