do you mean "past" kamui, of course he cant be past kamui because he always was in front of him. He passed him on the way to eau rouge.
And Kobayashi in the end was not in the position to claim the racing line... but then he just steered right into Hamilton. There was enough space left for Kobayashi.
is my english so bad that I can't understand you guys...
Kobayashi only steered right after the contact was made. Before that he remained straight, while Lewis was veering to the left.
What are you looking at?
Hamilton never left the racing line.
Kobaysih simply suffering from Micheal Jordan syndrome when around Hamilton on track. Most drivers do. I realize they get fiesty whenever the come within camera shot of him.
Here is the exact same situation, only Hamilton in Kamui's position:
this is a wet track by the way.
Surely Kamui must alteast have some culpability. It can't be hamilton has to give room every single time. People were even saying this with the Maldonado incident.
You are behind and you are not beside a wall, you can lift or you can skoot over.
What you can't do is turn in. Which is what Kamui did. He was not driven into, he was the one who initiated the touch.
I guess he was trying to do this:
"the swat a fly off the front wing tip with the crash structure" move.
Which is more dificult than it looks. Takes a lot of feel to do this move.
Kamui is trying to imitate the BOSS
, but he's not quite yet there.
He should take his practice out on other cars though. I know he looks up to lewis and wants lewis to see how he's improving, but better he take his little knapsack of skills out on the other small fries.
