    Well, he did not make allowances for Hamilton fighting him through the corner and turn into Hamilton, causing the crash. It was very daft. And you chaps just keep making a mockery of yourselves describing why it was dumb driving.

    BTW Leclerc has his head well screwed on. A proper smart driver that thinks well on his feet.
    Max left room for Lewis .
    That is why Lewis got the penalty .

    but although hamiltons statement would make you think otherwise, i find it hard to believe it was actually his intention to send max into the wall.
    There is plenty of video evidence of what happened. It was a racing incident. None of it was intentional. Hamilton did not take Vertstappen out. If the video evident indicated that was the case, the stewards would have issued a race ban easily.

    Nope, the crash was spectacular which is why he got the penalty. The disproportionate reactions also had loads to do with it.

    Defending and intentionally punting someone into the wall are worlds apart. Keep digging..

    Yes, it's quite a statement either way.

    Come on, how could you say Hamilton punted Verstappen into the wall. What race were you watching mate? Kurun Chandhok detailed analysis did not show that. Palmer's analysis on Formula One TV did not show that. Somehow you saw that on your TV

    don't bother with nitro and TBK, they will defend hamilton whatever happens. no point in trying to convince thim he did anything wrong.

    but as long as hamilton's not involved they are ok to discuss with.

    "I was pretty far alongside him, but I could see he wasn't going to back out. But then we went into the corner and we collided"

    Lewis's words, not mine.. he had also mentioned something about showing Max he was not going to be bullied.

    Make of that what you will. I'm guessing it will be that he mispoke or that it doesn't prove it was intentional or whatever... but that's what he said.

    I know. I don't expect to convince them but the arguments offer as justification are pretty funny.

    I especially like the lectures on proper racing .

    But , I get confused when I'm right sometimes and then other times I have no idea what real racing is all about .
