Hamilton is also passing in such a way as to keep the lead ( if he takes it ) from Max who will do all he can to re pass.foxmulder_ms wrote: ↑Mon Jul 26, 2021 4:49 am1) Hamilton does *not* need to be on the apex.bluechris wrote: ↑Sun Jul 25, 2021 9:56 pmGuys i don't know what you see here but i personally see 2 cars from Leclerc and Verstapen almost in the same position and another one from Hamilton that in Leclerc case is on apex correctly and in the case of Verstapen he is almost 2 meters from it.
He was correctly penalized imo and we can continue with our lives.
2) Racing line (as proven by qualifying laps) are not even on the apex at that point of the turn.
3) Hamilton is not closer to apex because Max pushed him towards the wall which made Ham's turn angle more acute.
4) Hamilton does not need to yield one mm in this incident since they are side by side before the turn.
Hamilton would not take the prefect line but one to position his car where he wants it after the corner, and the same for Max who would like to keep his place.
