Sorry, I forgot where I was. Max is only unlucky, anybody else is lucky.
The engine destroyed is unlucky, but like the saying goes, you make your own luck. If you have a racing incident, the outcome is of your own making; good or bad, it’s of your own making.sorry it didn’t work out for your driver that time.
I subscribe to the belief that it WAS a racing incident and one that Max could have avoided at that. Doesn't make me a Lewis fan, nor does it mean I blame Max.
I think the stewards caved to the pressure to be seen to do something, which is why they gave Lewis a penalty.
I do wonder whether, had they not given Lewis a penalty at Silverstone, Max would still have gotten one at Monza.
Either way, I just want a clean, fair fight for the title. Of course I'd also settle for both drivers taking each other off at every remaining race and Lando coming through to take a surprise first title lol
I agree. I see it through a more neutral lens. The FIA under massi cave under external pressure, I’m sure that will change after some years, maybe decades, in his role, with more experience.
they cornered themselves into penalising racing incidents from there. Neither of them should have got a penalty.
