Nice overtake by hulk into the 2nd chicane
It looks a bit too easy. The other car ( Gasly?) started regenerating way before the corner. Wondering whether he was nursing a fuel issue and had to lift early.

To be fair, Monza is Ferrari. It’s not like any of the other venues can be attributed to a singular team, unlike Monza/Ferrari. And I’d also say that most of the Tifosis are fans of Ferrari, not the drivers.

Just saying. I am not justifying that the booing is right, just putting some context to it.
It's not just the booing. I am actually okay with that. I saw some ridiculous posters of Lewis and it felt like 'hate.' That is not cool. No matter who it is.
The Monza posters have been happening for years, maybe even decades. Remember the one with Montoya on all fours in front of Schumacher in the 90s? The ones with Hamilton are quite clean when you compare them.

They were braking side by side and hulk just outbraked him and went round the outsite. so i dont think it was "easy".

Montoya came in F1 in the 21'st century and not the 90's IIRC. Also, I'm from India and our exposure to the internet back then was minimal. The broadcast feed we got back then was crap and it's crap even now. So, I can't compare but I'll take your word for it and it won't change my mind that it's pathetic.

Did a little video about the ERS and Overtake button at work, from Monza onboard.

Gasly pressed the overtake button for a better corner exit acceleration. But it can only work for a few seconds, so after that it was back to auto ERS deployment based on the setting. It's also very clear to see the battery bar went down on straights and went back up after braking through corners, which is how MGU-K works.

I enhanced the audio a tiny bit so it's a little easier to hear the sound of the electric boost. The few seconds where Gasly pressed the overtake button is obviously the sound of the maximum ERS boost, but the electric boost was working on all straights during that lap, just not in that extremely-consuming overtaking mode.
