Still, he acted like it was 100% HAM corner and VER had to yield, no matter what.
He forgot to mention VER left the car width (which the defending party on the outside is obliged to) and HAM understeered wide, and thus initiated the contact.
I get why he does not touch upon this but there is a clear reason why the penalty was awarded to HAM and this is perfectly in accordance with the rulebook.
I personally have no issue with the space that Max left. He is good on that! No problemo!
The issue is when he turns in!! Just why, for Allah's sake?! He had acres of land on his left side. He could have turned in later and hit Lewis with the switch-over. Or, he could have hung on the outside and forced a penalty on Lewis if Lewis punts him off.
So. My conclusion is that Max made a tiny error and paid a big price for it. I don't care about the space or the Apex. That had nothing to do with why they crashed. They crashed because it's two rivals scrapping to cut each other off.
