It is making me sick to the stomach. Mercedes will run with it. No way you can defend from this. I fear Spa. It is such a dangerous track with many places where it can go wrong.

Yet the guy who made huge mistakes (and I’m not even counting Silverstone as I think that was an race incident) is leading the championship… unbelievable. First time since I can remember I turned the tv off halfway the race

I feel like they are being stolen of the championship.
Any other result that winning the title would be a real blowback for Formula1 I think
Such talk seems unreasonable. The team and driver with most points will, rightfully, win the WCC and WDC, surely?
It is up to Red Bull - Honda, Verstappen and Perez to do a better job and win more points!
As Peter Brock always says, "That's motor racing." For having 9 Bathust wins, there are plenty of other Bathurst wins which Mr. Brock lost!

But still two times a merc professionally destroyed the race of the main competitor. Thats looks extremely unlucky

I have never seen one driver being so lucky that, the very reason to be leading a championship is through luck. It's simply unbelievable. Not just Hamilton has got lucky in disastrous scenarios, but Max suffering all the bad luck is just beyond belief.
Is it luck or is it skill? Racing incidents happen in racing after all, "that's motor racing."
IIRC, Will Power has lost many, many Indycar driver's championships in the final round. Almost to the point where it became an amusing meme for commentators and fans!
Verstappen might do the same, and win on his 5th or 6th real WDC challenge instead of the first real WDC challenge. Sometimes it takes more than one go to get it together!
