No need. Norris drove into Albon they were side by side going into the chichane. Obviously Norrris fans are in rage but he could have closed the door or got him in the second corner. Danny Ric did a similar move on Stroll and they didnt touch.

Albon wouldn't have made the corner without the contact tbh

Norris was not completely at fault. Albon is becoming a bit too optimistic or if i put in in another way too violent with his overtaking after changing seats. Must be due to the pressure to perform in RedBull, especilally in Honda home teritory.

So far Albon still didnt perform massively better than Gasly, still collecting the scraps that other top 5 are leaving behind, but in the other hand much more consistent. Gasly on the other hand is performing as good as Albon did in STR.

So race distance is shortened by 1 lap, and therefore Hulk is tenth instead of 9th.

We dont know that, he had same speed as Norris at the apex. The contact happened before the apex so he went stright after the contact.
Watch Danny Rics move on Stroll. Stroll goes on the outside of the first chichane, making him favourite for second chichane.

Danny Ric jumps to 6th after penalty for Leclerc, so we only outscore by 1 point.

But this is interesting

Leclerc was the driver which actually destroyed the race for Lando by filling his brake ducts with debries.

Albon didnt help either. He tried something similar in Monza if i remember correctly, but Sainz came out as the winner and Albon went into the grave back then.

I mean, even if McLaren didn't take any points from Renault this race, it is not the end of the world. It is still good for McLaren because that gives Renault one less race to try and bridge points gap. It is very unfair, don't get me wrong. McLaren has been so god damn unlucky this year. Every time they have had a very fast car things have not gone entirely smoothly for them. In Bahrain Carlos clashed with Max, in France Lando lost hydraulics, In Austria Carlos lost a bit of front wing in the ending stages, in Russia they get screwed over by VSc timing and now here Lando hits Leclerc's debris and damages the brakes. The team really deserved to take at least 8 points out of Renault today if things went smoothly for them.

However Racing Point has protested against them for using an illegal driving aid during the race, so the Renaults might get disqualified.

I thought the same at first glance, that it was Norris' fault but it wasn't really his fault. Just check from how far back and how late Albon brakes that he can't even take the next corner despite he's in full lock and despite having lost some speed from the contact as well. Obviously he dived in very late, he could had been more patient and left more space.

Sainz's q3 lap 1.28.304 (P7)

vs albon - knocking on RB's door, less than 0.5s off. Mclaren was for whatever reason much superior to red bull in slow speed hairpin and final chikane, sainz gains loads of time trough there. They're lacking a bit of pace in the race still.
