This telemetry is also crooked. According to this, Hamilton is a few kphs faster while Verstappen gained about 40cm on him._cerber1 wrote: ↑Wed Jul 21, 2021 8:57 amNote that Hamilton presses on the brake already before contact, and his steering wheel is turned in the direction of the turn, he was trying to avoid a collision. Max cuts the corner at full speed, not thinking that someone is there.
Just_a_fan has already explained what was fairly obvious from the start, of course he was faster than Max up to the point of maximum overlap which would also have to be the point at which their speed traces meet, afterwards Lewis' trace would absolutely have to drop below Max' since Max then goes faster than Lewis up until the contact.Ryar wrote: ↑Wed Jul 21, 2021 8:21 amReally? That shows the lack of understanding on how much impact Lewis had with that toe.

Still doesn't make much sense given that the graph has Lewis at a higher speed than Max the entire time when he must have been slower in order to fall back relative to him. Unless that bit is covered by the massive X. I really wonder where they get that data from.
Assuming this collision happens with two laps to go it would be one of those that would be investigated after the race with both drivers being allowed to give their input/view and the teams being able to potentially put forward more data than the stewards have (i actually wonder what data they have, does anyone know?).El Scorchio wrote: ↑Wed Jul 21, 2021 9:15 pmI feel this incident really highlights how the stewards have a really difficult job to do and decisions to make at times, even though we slate them a lot if we don’t personally agree.
After so much really good detailed analysis and a few days, there is still nowhere near a unanimous agreement.
Yes, this demonstrates it was a racing incident. Both drivers could have avoided it, neither one wanted to be the guy to blink first.
I’m glad they overlayed Max’s qualifying run on this, because it reinforces my point that Max was never going to make that corner either. Unfortunately for both, they made contact, but Max was either going to have to give up the spot or he was going to end up in the boonies and take himself out. The fact that he let Lewis trick him into that situation shows a kink in the armor / lack of maturity that Lewis will undoubtedly take note of.
