It wasn't a crash it was just contact
Gosh... Sainz was ahead, ok, but Hamilton had over half a car alongside Sainz. This means that Sainz should leave space for Hamilton and not push him beyond the track. Hamilton had to avoid the collision caused by the dive bomb Sainz had just done. Dive bombs by itself should be strictly forbidden, specially if you are behind on the braking zone. In this case, dive-bombing and pushing the other car of the track.... clearly you and FIA Stewart's got it wrong, and Sainz should have been penalized.
100% Sainz was ok, it's not even much of a toss up with the video here.
People (including Toto, lewis and co.) act as though Masi ruined the race for them. This same Masi didn't allow Max to keep his legitimate overtake last year which was a fovour to Hamilton. If lewis were told to give the place back to Max as per rules, no rule might not be needed to be tinkered with at the end as Max would've led from early in the race which would be a completely different race. Masi favoured lewis that season several times throughout the campaign but you won't hear Merc/lewis fans crying about that.
What I don’t understand is Lewis is turned is wheels fully to left then had to break to not make contact goes in steering lock again but at that moment he already was on the sausage Kerb, so didn’t it mean that sainz didn’t leave enough space
You don't hear the drivers criticize Hamilton in the media. Which is logical; how do you criticize a 7 time world champ without being (seen as) a sore loser. Behind the scenes, in team internal communication and probably in discussions between drivers of different teams, Hamiltons moves and driving style clearly are analysed and spoken about. This race we heard Sainz say something like: 'he did the same things as last year ... this time he shouldn't get away with it'. After this years first Silverstone start, where Leclerc lost a position to Lewis, Charles said to his engineer something like: 'he did the thing he always does ... this time they must do something about it'.
Joylon, why do you keep saying these moves are okay? They're pushing Lewis off the track. It's totally ridiculously, used to respect you but I guess you've been bought off like so many other media personalities. You used to have some integrity.
What is similar is that stewards flip a coin to determine if they are going to keep HAM accountable to the rules.
I think the dive bombs like this in general are sketchy. Everybody analysis the driver getting over taken talking about what they should or shouldn’t do…
reality is ,the driver out front is on the normal racing line and the dive bomber is on an opposing line. The dive bomber shows up beside your car at the last second at a time where you should be accelerating through the apex lol you have a split second to decide if you are going to crash into this person who will hit you unless you do something lol. neither cars at that point can stop so the easiest thing to do is cut the corner. the only reason the driver goes off track is because they were forced…..
I don’t think lewis or any driver thinks they got away with cutting the corner but rather keeps going after avoiding a collision to not lose more places staying “on the track” and taking a terrible line in the next corner. They just think I’ll give it back if they ask. Can’t argue with that in my opinion.
Saying the move from Verstappen last year was legit throws your the legitimacy of your opinion out of the window. If this is actually allowed, why not just push drivers out of the track in the middle of the straight? I mean, your overtaking move was made as soon as you have your front tires ahead, just make sure he cannot get you in the next DRS zone and push him a little bit out on the grass or gravel. Why not?
Even this move by Sainz was borderline, but he did leave space on the outside so the Lewis giving the place back was warranted.
Some how I recall that last year the FIA said the gains were given back on the subsequently lap ? Not that he didn’t get away this year, he got away both years, he would’ve lost so much more (including track position) if he kept within the track😅😅
Palmer is so bias
Sainz's was fine because he left a cars width Max's wasn't because he didn't leave a cars width
thats would like to see a screen in a steer and shows vehicle arroud,seems like high tech radar,full with sensors in car mustly,thats very advance screen steer system, "Smart Steer",thanks,,hhe
Such a tricky thing to say when a dive bomb is legal and not
Well when you are at speed all of those things cannot happen like slowing the dial down. LH was pushed off the track. They were in real time. 100 + miles per hour. Come on you never give Lewis the benefit ever.
Palmer's assessment is terrible. Palmer says, "Actually there is PROBABLY enough room for Hamilton" to stay on the track at bHY_DKN9WMA&t=3m23s 3:23 .
Even WITH the benefit of hindsight and video, Palmer does NOT know for sure - but it doesn't stop Palmer for saying with CERTAINTY that Lewis was wrong.
It's an obvious contradiction, actually...
Why was Sainz crying about last year he wasnt even in contention
