I see what you are saying, but at the point of contact, who had free space to the side of their car?

Also the cars were dead level and both off the racing line. so neither have any more rights than the other. The difference was Max had a good 10m of space to his right, Charles had 0m space to his left.

unless I'm seeing things.
You are not seeing things and that's why I said it is a racing incident. Charles had 0m space to his left, in fact 2 of his wheels are on the outside of the kerbs. He has to turn in towards Max to get all 4 wheels back on the track. Max has already straighten his car at this point and occupying the space where Leclerc gave up by going outside (Again look at the video posted he went much wider than lap 68). Max could move further to the right by unwind slower but that will impact his drive out of that corner in a straight. Leclerc could back off because he is on the kerb and no space left for him. Hence a racing incident.

There seem to be a lot of people here who have different ideas of racing lines, what Verstappen should have done, what Leclerc should have done etc. OK, so some agree to disagree, but really this "I know better than you" toing and froing is going a bit too far. The race is over, the points awarded, the stewards decision is final, neither team is arguing the case....so lets just move on. PLEASE !

Given the fact that Alfa Romeo performed quite well in Austria, Ferrari should have had more than enough engine headroom to control the race. Yet somehow I they managed to screw it up, the power was available when they needed it if you look at the fight between Leclerc and Verstappen from turn 3 to turn 4.

Hi everyone, finally got round to uploading all my photos and videos from my visit to Austria. What a week, the dutch fans in particular were brilliant, and some of the Max set ups in the campsite were ridiculous. Anyway I've uploaded them all (and my subsequent trip to Amsterdam) into the following album. There's some good close shots of the cars in parc ferme and during our pitlane walk on Thursday. Feel free to peruse at your leisure. Hope you like them! https://www.facebook.com/alex.davison2/ ... 401&type=3
