I thought it was the other way around. They had to pit Bottas so that he wouldn't be in the way of Hamilton if he was lapped. Either way, it was a(n expected) slap in the face.Safety net, I think. If he didn't pit, he probably would've caught up and potentially got 2nd if the gap was there.
I don't like that they lied to him about it being vibrations.
You might be right. All I know is that it was an unnecessary stop to Bottas, and to give an impression of allowing him the fastest lap (b/c why else do you pit towards the end and throw on softs?).I thought it was the other way around. They had to pit Bottas so that he wouldn't be in the way of Hamilton if he was lapped. Either way, it was a(n expected) slap in the face.
"Valt wel mee toch?" (No, it isn't that bad.) But just don't like people to sing it like that. For me, even the normal 'tape' sounds way more happier.We have a pretty boring national anthem anyway, really hard to make it sound interesting. That's what you get with a 450 year old anthem I guess
I am rapidly running out of patience with him. Why is it so difficult to qualify in the top 4, and still be in the top 4 at the end of lap 1?Perez gets driver of the day for again performing his routine of messing up his own race and overtaking some cars a couple seconds slower a lap than his.
20 laps prior, yeah 😂Bottas told the pits he was getting vibrations
It doesn't really need stating but if Silverstone and Bottas' impromptu game of bowling hadn't happened, Max could've been looking at a lead in the region of 50-odd points instead of merely regaining it today (And yes, that's a whole load of if/but/maybe's).I would be in complete shock if Max doesn't win the WDC....his win today is just commanding and his overall performance this weekend has just been nearly flawless. That Red Bull car is really working at every track! 👏
