I think I'm not a blind Hamilton supporter. I think all we saw was hot blooded racing with aggressive but legal move from both parties (until PM rejoined the track)Mandrake wrote:Ray I really appreciate your efforts to show the HAM / MAL case in all its details! Especially your screengrabs from a couple of pages ago are brilliant and show exactly what Hamilton did.
If he ran wide due to lack of grip (he braked late to fend off MAL, so he didn't make the turn with his tires, that's what I believe) or if he intentionally tried to defend by pushing MAL off track does not matter. THe fact is that he did it.
The rest is just a result of HAM not giving MAL an inch of space when MAL returned on track. By the way, on the overhead shots you can clearly see how he just misses the slowdown bump in the second part of the chicane. Had he driven over that he might have sliced HAMs head off.....
But I think you should leave it now, there are too many british members / blind Hamilton supporters here (as all the other HAM discussions show) to have an objective argument about something that happened in the race.
Ohh and to all those referring to the Stewards' decision: When it fits you, you say "look, the Stewards agree with that it was MALs fault", but when it doesn't you just complain about their stupidity.......

I could just as well say that there was no door open for Maldonado either (due to the fact that pursuing his manoeuvre took him off the track) and that Hamiltons position was the cause of that.
There was no space that Maldonado could have driven into to, in order to complete the overtake.
It is the role of the overtaking driver to drive into space, not to wait for space to be made available to them.
That's just silly.
