A classic oxymoron.
Media is writing the story because there is a reason (51g impact on a human being), you think it's a stoke up, you say no one cares, while clearly there's is a concern all around.
Remember when Max almost killed Kimi, a human being, in Belgium?
Not the first time, either. The White Knight charade for Verstappen is such a joke that it’s time this was posted.
Vettel says it perfectly in the video. Verstappen’s amateurish bully tactics work, so long as the other car just reacts like a defensive driver on the roadway. Hamilton had reacted like that before. But no more.
And at least in Hamilton’s case, he was only partially to blame for what happened (hence the “predominantly” language in the stewards’ report).
Well I guess there are "people jumping up and down in anger" after all.
Agree that there are quite a few questionable moves from VER from the past. But he's tested the limits and is a hard but clean racer these days (and you can find similar videos of HAM). This one was on Hamilton, even though I would let it slide as a race incident this time. But if they dont punish it, then drivers will be pushing each other out each race.
I hope VER doesn't take this as an invitation to race even harder now. A retribution move would surely be punished much harder to set a precident.
He doesn’t race cleaner these days.
Horner even admitted that at Barcelona that if Lewis didn’t back out, they were crashing. He then applauded the move by Max and called it “full Max Verstappen”.
So when Max goes charging into a corner, and the other driver backs out, it’s worthy of admiration and praise, but if the other driver doesn’t, and they make contact, they’re calling for the other’s head on a stake.
Imola was the same story.
The videos and quotes are all out there for all to read.
This is what has Lewis’s side fired up. Take away Horner and Marko’s incendiary remarks, and this goes away sooner.
