Yes, but when Mercedes does it, it's baaaaaaaaad.


That's because of Hamilton's hypocrisy. His snide remarks about Vettel's advantage with team orders have created the responses you are crying about.

Yes, good and frank interview. Funny that he suggested Bottas should have blocked him harder and held him up even longer to protect Lewis since he is the WDC challenger.

Bottas was called into the pits for tyres, they basically didn't want to ruin his race, a true #2 would have stayed out to protect his supposed team leader.

And he did. They delayed his pit stop to help Lewis.

They clearly don't like each other but I think that's a bit far fetched.

Sometimes, I have to wonder at the thought process that goes into some of the conspiracy theories.

it's one thing to sit on your sofa watching the race thinking "If I wait to let past Hamilton an Verstappen until the penultimate lap then that will give Hamilton a greater change to win the race, which will give him more points in his fight against Vettel, seven more in fact, and Vettel retired so it will be like really really useful to him"

It's a completely different thing when you are on a race track, fighting for position in an underpowered car, exhausted after 90 minutes of race, and suddenly you start seeing the blue flags - and then, inbetween taking high G force corners every few seconds go and make the same logical deduction in your head and think "yeah, that will be tricky to pull off, but it's totally worth potentially screwing my entire race up over"


Yeah, If anything I wondered if Massa/Alonso were a bit surprised at how bad the Mercedes was in dirty air. You don't want to break rhythm in S1 as it takes so much time off your lap and the best place is probably going into the chicane at the end of the lap or the hairpin in S2 but until that lap the Merc just struggled to keep up in S1 and through Spoon so it was never an easy move aside job imo, especially considering they were fighting for position too.

Seems unlikely during all that Alonso suddenly went... :idea:

Well the “delay window” was only 2 laps max. to help Lewis.
Initially by keeping him out - Lewis was losing time in the dirty air behind Bottas.
They could definitely have kept him out for another lap or two until such a time Max overtook him.

Hamilton has had copious amounts of fortune in the last few weeks - but not a great deal of assistance from his team-mate . Even the aid of a “rear- gunner” as Kimi provided in Hungary is not something Bottas has been able to do for one reason or other .

Then Hamilton would have been let by straight away and Verstappen delayed much longer, Verstappen said himself that he was surprised by how little he was delayed by Bottas.

Yes Bottas had 11 seconds back to Kimi when he came out the pits, Mercedes could have left him out for another 5 or 6 laps at the rate Kimi was undercutting him. But it would have killed his chance to get Ricciardo. He pretty much did the optimum strategy for a soft to super soft race, maybe 1 or 2 laps out from that.

He only went 5 laps longer than Ricciardo and in order to overtake him he arguably needed more of a fresh tyre advantage than that on top of his softer compound

Only Alonso has the talent to do this. He also operates on a different plane than normal humans so I wouldn't expect humans to understand it.

My original comment was 100% being facetious, but if you think that most drivers least of all Alonso isn't capable of processing logical thoughts whilst driving an F1 car you're doing him a disservice. I reckon at least half the drivers could complete a Sudoku whilst they complete their race.

I'm sure you're not being serious.

Anyway this fake impeding fooled the stewards as well as they gave him 2 penalty points on his license.

Then Alonso made a poor job of it because he impeded Hamilton more than Verstappen.

I've been watching Alonso when he gets lapped. I really don't think it's anything personal, I think he just just knows the rules and has the capacity/confidence to exploit them to his own end. While a lot of lapped drivers will leap out of the way on sight, he seems to be perfectly happy to use his full allowance of 3 corners after the first blue flag. Then if there a two cars lapping him he won't compromise himself further to let them both past at once: He'll slot in and take another 3 corners if needs be. And also, as evidenced today, he'll risk a penalty if he thinks the risk/reward makes sense.
He doesn't seem to really care about what how this affects the front runners or whether it ends up being fair or not, and while I get that this is annoying, you have to ask you're self: From a sporting POV why should he care?

Alonso should feel relieved that from next year onwards, he'll be battling in the top 8 & wouldn't need to move over for cars.

Has it been mentioned Mercedes had a problem with Hamilton's car in the morning and needed to change a spark plug.

Yes I heard that and on that subject I heard that the oil used in the engine was not just for burning but cooling as well. The new Ferrari engine was designed to be used with the 1.2 litre rules and not the 0.9 litre rule and the problems the engines have suffered with is overheating in certain parts of the engine caused by the heat experienced in both Malaysia and Japan on raceday.

The spark plug or coil failures relate to how the HCCI system works and the stress it puts these parts under, and this has been exasperated by the new oil rule and the heat experienced at the Asian circuits, this has sort of been put out there and I'm not a Technical person so I've done my best to explain.

I thought that all new engines introduced after the summer break had to conform to 0.9?

Hopefully. Mclaren needs to ensure the car is on par again next year, and Renault needs to show some improvement and not fall behind after introducing their new concept.

Yes but it's been mooted that the Ferrari engine was originally designed for the 1.2 limit, the oil is also used for cooling and this has caused them some issues at the 0.9 limit when running in hot climates.

This is a ridiculous penalty, a fine would be suffice. A penalty that can result in a grid penalty for missing an anthem is not appropriate.

I wonder whether it was deliberately severe to set a precedent in order to deal with any potential negative publicity should Hamilton decide to take the knee in Austin, or at the very least deter him.

This is a face saving move. They had to eventually penalize him for something! Unless he pulls another hissy fit the extra demerit point won't hurt and the ruling body get's to check off a completed task.

Get behind Formula E, allow it to flourish and to soak up as big a manufacturer presence as possible. Support their advances in electric technology and all the marketing plus points that come with it. Only then can F1 drop the road relevancy facade and go back to being a rugged and raw motorsport that exists for the pure passion of racing. If there is no other single-seater series ticking the green technology box then I expect we'll always be stuck with some form of this semi-eco friendly mongrel that F1 has become

If Merc wanna leave, let 'em go. If Renault wanna leave, let 'em go too. F1 would do just fine without the manufacturers. A grid powered by Ferrari and Cosworth V8s/V10s/V12s would be just fine
