what was there to misspeak. He showed his speed and is now a martyr of his first race in a top car. Leclerc was pittied for halve a season after Bahrein last year and still is allowed to pull of stunts any other driver would be chastised for without an eye lid being bat.
Russell was clearly playing the drama like alonso did parking himself in the spotlights. Good on him! If you really going to take time to collect yourself before speaking you do somewhere where nobody can see you. Like Max tried to do when he sat behind the pitbox coming to terms with losing the turkey pole to improving weather conditions. Ofcourse still a pcture was made by someone of a private moment otherwise we woudl't have known, but not front an centre in the mixed zone where all the camera teams are.
I always thought Hamilton was awful when he speaks (so much of melodrama which he could without), but Max is beating him to that. Lots of unnecessary statements against Ferrari, against his team mate and now against someone who would most likely have shut the door for him on a Mercedes possibility. Like Hamilton, he is bloody good driver, but this frustration that he is masquerading, covered in cheap jibes, isn't going to make him look appealing to any team. In a few years, he would most likely have insulted the whole of the grid and shutting all doors on himself.
There are drivers around him like Leclerc, Norris, Sainz and now Russell, who are all talented to deliver championships to their teams when they have a good car in their hand, rendering Max unwanted and leaving at the sole hope of a Red Bull making a winner. In such difficult circumstances, having an unnecessary loud mouth is plain simple suicidal.
