Amazing ... according to some there was no contact between the two and Lewis just lost control, then once everyone had to admit there was contact some just go back a bit further and claim absolutely silly stuff like "Lewis [left] Max no other option then to take the curb [...] So in fact Lewis initiated the contact." when there was easily enough space to completely avoid the curb in the first place - had a similar discussion about whether a scene in football was a penalty, there was a foul against the defending player so no penalty, but people just kept claiming that things which chronologically happened earlier were already enough to give the penalty ... grasping at straws ...hard .... it's the same bloody nonsense in every sport i guess ...
Although it is a funny game ... let's blame Vettel, Hamilton had to back out and slow down because of him, so it was actually him who initiated the contact ... although ... Hamilton had a good start which forced Vettel to run him off track so it was him who initiated the contact ...
Oh and Palmer went from claiming that Hamilton lost it on his own (in his column) to "there was contact but he still totally lost it on his own" when the videos show he had to go that wide because of Max ... quality content from one of the worst ever F1 drivers we had the 'pleasure' of watching
Some of it is anti-Hamilton bias, some of it is pro-Verstappen bias, but alot of it is because of shear ignorance of the "rules of racing" required by the drivers.
Even the drivers don't know them, it is quite evident when you hear nonsense from clowns like Massa and Vettel talking about "I owned the corner" just because their nose was an inch ahead on the inside line. The rules need to be clearly defined and harshly enforced so that these clowns understand that they must leave proper racing room when entering a corner with a car who has been side by side with them for half the length of the straight.
VER knew HAM was next to him, because VER knew HAM had to lift because of VET's idiotic move on the straight, which allowed VER to get next to HAM. VER went into T1 too hot, knowing HAM was next to him, causing a collision on the exit of t1, and forcing HAM mostly off the track (which is defined by the white line). It was 2 punishable offenses, but neither was enforced, it is deplorable.
The fans want side by side racing, but the stewards refuse to enforce the rules that would allow more of it.
