More importantly just because one move (plus coming back to r. line) is allowed = 2 it doesn't mean that any 2 moves will always be considered clean defending in some robotic I can count to two fashion mentioned above. Where those moves happen (straight/mid corner), where is the other car, can it react, is there a collision, how quickly they happen, speed/speed changes, space = all the elements present here that amount to chaotic and amateurish blocking that should have been penalised.turbof1 wrote:Yes, that's correct what you said. Only Max did not return to the racing line. He was on the inside at the entry of the corner. So that's the inside line, but not the racing line. Atleast that's my view (and for the record that's the view of a member; I'm nobody's superior in a discussion content-wise.).hollus wrote:@Turbo
No wish of starting a ying-yang and even less with a moderator, but the rule does not say that only one move is allowed. It says that you are allowed one move (Max ducks to the right); that then you are allowed to return to the racing line (Max ducks to the left) and that then you are allowed to take the corner (Max turns right again, no one calling foul here).
Max waited for the very last meter to do it all, did it with eyes on his mirrors and left Raikonnen no where to go... except that Raikkonen lost his left end plate in a right-handed corner, which doesn´t quite fit with Max making an ill timed move to his left, which is what the complaints seem to be about. Raikkonen chose to try the inside line again after all, and probably everyone would have made the same call, but it was his call to put the car there in the first place.
The kid played dirty... kind of, maybe, but within the rules to the last comma. IMHO.
Hard within limits was Canada, this one was not, not in the slightest but rather childish driving not for the first time from Verstappen (long list: Monaco x 2, Australia, Hungary '15, Abu Dhabi, Spa).
