Well Ed what do you make of that then.
Looking good for Mclaren podium.

AlFred

{Ed001's Note - stupid or deliberate by Max imo. He didn't need to do that, he could have backed out and got him on the next straight. There was no way he could expect Hamilton to leave a gap when he didn't earlier on.}

Great pass by Lando totally agree on that amazing that Brundle doesn't see ir that way. I supppse that's the SLY way.

{Ed001's Note - that was incredible by Lando!! Brilliant move, even the deliberate widening of turn 11 to put himself into position.}


2.) 12 Sep 2021 15:26:53
Well done Mclaren boy's.

{Ed001's Note - let's hope they hold on and there are no issues with either car!}

Brilliant drive by Danny and Lando.
Love it. Bottas drove well today. Cut through the field. Proved me wrong. Checo did well to hold off Bottas, otherwise I think he could have got to P2 with that Merc rocketship in Monza. Checo is not really doing though last few races though. Hopefully his luck changes.

{Ed001's Note - strange the difference in the Mercs today. Yesterday Hamilton couldn't overtake because the harvesting was being done at max revs and slowed the car when it needed to go faster. Today they were suddenly able to go flat out. They must have altered the harvest period over night. Just odd that they were able to do that but didn't think to do it before the sprint race.}

Absolutely. The difference between sprint and the main race for the Mercs was huge. Whatever they did overnight has worked beautifully.

Wow what a start Horner trying his best with Masi.

AlFred

{Ed001's Note - would you give Hamilton a penalty?}


1.) 18 Jul 2021 15:51:27
Not sure 1st lap and all that after the penalty it could be a Dream for Lando.

{Ed001's Note - I would love Lando to win.}


2.) 18 Jul 2021 16:02:21
All seem's to have calmed down. Maybe the pit stop's will change a few things.

{Ed001's Note - disappointing when they start looking after tyres like this as nothing happens.}


3.) 18 Jul 2021 16:06:00
Agreed maybe trying to advantage of Hamiltons penalty. Le clerc in trouble good chance for Lando.

{Ed001's Note - Leclerc's issue could make it exciting.}


4.) 18 Jul 2021 16:16:32
Bad pit stop for Lando.

{Ed001's Note - nearly ruined his day.}


5.) 18 Jul 2021 17:04:35
Wow what a finish then. Did Perez do the same to Raikanon.

{Ed001's Note - I was thinking that. It looked similar.}


6.) 18 Jul 2021 17:11:42
I think hamilton deserved the penalty. He had enough space to hit the apex in that corner. Nevertheless drove brilliantly after that.
Hopefully Max is ok.
As a Ferrari fan, would have loved to see Leclerc win.
As a Check fan though disappointed. He needs to do better.


7.) 18 Jul 2021 19:54:45
What happened with Perez / Raikonen.


8.) 20 Jul 2021 11:00:15
Ed what was your opinion on the turn one incident? I thought Hamilton had plenty of space on the right to move if he wanted. But at the same time he didn't really run Max off the road. tough one.

{Ed001's Note - for me Hamilton was on the limit, on the onboard pictures he looks only slightly offline and there was plenty of space for Verstappen to go round him. I would say both were at fault, Hamilton had gone in hard taken a chance and so took a chance, Max was too aggressive in trying to cut him off and drove into him doing so. For me that is a racing incident and so, if anything, a ten-second penalty is a bit harsh, but you have to accept, if you are Hamilton, that you did have a part to play in Verstappen ending up in the wall and move on. By the same token, Max needs to grow up and realise that he has a big lead in the championship and should be thinking of that and being more cautious. Give a bit more room as you have more to lose.}


9.) 22 Jul 2021 09:09:18
I don't know if they take it into consideration but I thought the 10 seconds was fair.

The red flag effectively gave hamilton a free pit stop to fix the car due to the incident. If the race wasn't red flagged I think it would of been called a racing incident as Hamilton would have been penalised enough having to pit to fix the cars damage.

Agreed Ed. Do you think Hamilton will sign again after his current deal runs out. If not let's hope Russell can stay with Verstappen, otherwise it might go back to the Schumacher years which i stopped watching until Hamilton came along.

AlFred

{Ed001's Note - that is a good question, hard to tell with Hamilton as he has nothing left to really aim for. The only thing that will keep him going is if the racing is good I think. Top sportspeople thrive on competition.}

Maybe next year with the re-design of the cars, will hopefully make a difference. Although i woild think after a few races Merc and Red Bull will just pull away from rest. let's hope Russell is better than Bottas or Perez has been this season.

AlFred

{Ed001's Note - Russell is clearly better than Bottas, but whether that is enough to challenge Hamilton or not is the big question.}

Maybe they could add another DRS but they said on commentary the systems won't allow to happen. Also could they just use scrubbed tyre's that won't last. Not to sure what will help other than scrap the thing altogether.

AlFred

{Ed001's Note - the DRS doesn't really work there anyway. Tyres is the only thing that seems to bring any kind of racing in, but that shouldn't be needed for a race to take place.}
