Not on merit??
Did RBR screwed up the tyre strategy? NO
Did RBR have cooling problems? NO.
So they did a better job than the other teams en deserve to win.
yep, I agree. I don't like the way way Max Passed but the rules are the rules. I didn't know defending rules are different than for the passer. There are also now 2 sets of rules in F1, 1 for Passing or being passed by Max and passing or being passed by everyone else, atleast that the way it looked to me with LeClerc at the last race. Anyways Max was definitely faster at the end of that GP.
That was a decided pass, which left every opportunity to yield. Which Leclerc didn’t do, banking on a penalty I am sure. Did you see Leclerc slamming to the right on the end of hangar straight last race? That left no opportunity for Max to decide to abort the overtake attempt. If you disagree with Max way of driving, even singling him out I am curious as to how you see such attempts?
I always subscribed to the Alonso approach "you always jhabe to leabe space!". It also makes sense if you're in a title fight, as the more often you have contact, the higher the chances of a retirement. When Max finally did get passed, LeClerc didn't have any space and was forced off the road. The reason why max did that was, the Ferrari was faster in a straight line, and LeClerc re-passed him on the previous pass attempt. That's only my opinion, that plus 4 quarters will give you 1 $.
By not penalizing Max, it led to the hanger straight sequence. If you notice LeClerc didn't behave the same with other drivers, just with max. In the end if other drivers adopt LeClerc lead of treating Max differently, I believe it will lead to Max having having more incidents than other drivers, hence more retirements. Another driver that has Max's attitude is Hass's Magnussen. Like to see those two in similar paced cars and see the tears that will follow.
