3 place grid penalty for a racing incident.

Nice.

 

To me it felt like both were at fault. Hamilton was coming out of the pit and changed lanes, thus blocking Verstappen and Verstappen didn't back down when he could have. FIA needs to really f**k off!

That's why I said it's a racing incident. 

 

Hamilton didn't leave him space, whoever argues otherwise is just biased.

He steered under braking as well.

 

Verstappen didn't yield as well.

 

But a 3 place penalty for that is a joke.

FIA does the bidding of the leader, that's all.

 

This incident wouldn't have happened if either of them were not fighting for the championship.

Wheel to wheel battle at best.

Did you see the first lap incident between them? 

Everyone did, including the commentators.

And even they said live that it's a racing incident between the two.

 

I can get by when a driver squeezes another but Lewis changed lanes and steered under braking to do it and hence it turned into a mistake from both drivers.

If he would have squeezed VER into the corner and then there would have been a collision, I would have been in content with the penalty.

But for this, no. This is just 2 guys wanting to win the championship, just like when ROS and HAM took each other out.

 

P.S.

 

Here's one from Silverstone, in comparison with a following battle b/w LEC and HAM:

It is a racing incident with Max more to blame like silverstone was more Hamilton. Since both DNF'd, 3 Place grid drop is equivalent to 10 second time penalty.

Should have added another 5 secs for piss poor judgement.

And another 5 for piss-poor sportsmanship. Apparently you don't need to check on your fellow driver if you land a tire on their head.

He was revving his car and trying to get it out before VER even got out of his car. What else did you expect?

I've heard that argument before. These are complex machines where mechanical faults (like, surprise, from a collision) can likely cause the car to auto-rev. The sportsman-like thing to do would be to check on your fellow contestant, just to be sure.

 

I've seen better conduct in sports where you wouldn't expect it, such as MMA.

You haven't F1 long enough then. Go back to Schumacher era and see the conduct.

And HAM admitted that he was revving until he was told by the team to stop and VER also did an interview where he mentioned that he saw him revving and knew he was fine.

You don't know how long I've been watching F1 (and you didn't check), so that's just an assumption.

 

And I don't think you see the point. It's not about *whether* he was revving or not. There was no way to be sure at that very delicate point in time, so what do you do when you don't know? You check to be sure. I see that all the time in other sports, and I'm not sure if you're implying that the past condones bad behavior - which would be unfortunate. Again, just my 2c so there's no need to take offense over an opinion :)

Bro, I am not getting offensive. I apologise if it came off that way.

And saying that you haven't watched enough was just a figure of speech, I didn't mean it literally.

 

Past behaviour doesn't condone this, I agree but hardly ever you will see two competitive, championship drivers keep it cool after a crash like this, especially after Silverstone.

It's good to maintain sportsmanship but honestly in such situations your first reaction is of anger + fury and it makes sense to just walk off if you can see the other person being alright.

 

HAM & ROS didn't even see an eye to eye after their crash. If you go back to it, HAM threw his wheel and walked off. Later gone on to say "We are not friends" to media.

So it's ideal to do the right thing but doesn't always happen.

Unless you are Seb.

No worries, there are good discussions!

 

Yea, Hamilton/Rosberg was a pretty low intensity crash as compared to a car landing on someone's head :D All that said, this particulat walk off was pretty sad. It's a competitive sport (as all sports are), but you have to expect better from adults. And he had time to think about it as he walked back too :D 

 

I can't recall specific instances, but I know Vettel checked on Norris in that crash in qualifying from a few months ago. And look up the Senna/Comas incident (Belgian GP, again). Comas' foot was still on the accelerator even though he was unconscious when Senna stopped to check on him. We need to expect better, ideally.
