    Yep we'll see how consistent the stewards decide to be this weekend.

    Gasly lets Verstappen by - team orders at play?

    The race pace of the Merc is ridiculous...Vettel is already 6 seconds down behind Lewis!

    If I were Red Bull, I'd swap drivers right about now. See if Verstappen can close up to Vettel.

    Then switch them back if he can't.

    Apparently Max's overtake off track is OK too. lol


    Also seeing the Merc gaining over 1sec a lap is just ridiculous. It looks like they're on a different category.

    No, Gasly let him pass, as track data shows.

    Edit: Gasly tires have 8 more laps, so that makes sense to give him that instruction.

    Could barely see them from Vettel's in-car after the first few corners after the restart.

    The drivers all agreed that the racing should be more aggressive.

    edit.

    350000 people for the weekend. 141000 for the Sunday, and they were thinking to move the British GP to London. Idiots.

    Max was back on track when he got past, plus he was ahead to start with, plus Leclerc pushed him off. There is no reason to penalise him for an off track overtake, just as Leclerc shouldn't be penalised (per precedent from Austria)

    Citation needed?

    That doesn't excuse not penalizing illegal driving while the rules aren't changed.

    Max Verstappen rules: Any move is okay so long as the driver has enough fans to scare the stewards into not taking action. Other names include Dale Jr. rules and Chase Elliott rules :D

    Max got pushed off. Physically (luckily no one lost a wing). He took the spot back.

    LeClerc being penalized per Austria? :lol:

    Excuse my direct reply but I don't really care what dutch people say about Max's driving after what I've read after Austria.

    Brush up your Dutch as my source is just that.

    Bottas, Leclerc, Vettel, Lewis and Max all want the stewards to not be so quick with handing out penalties.

    I said that Leclerc shouldn't be penalised for pushing Mac off here, as Max wasn't penalised for Austria

    They were not talking about Austria, obviously. Because not only there was no penalty but they took 3h to make a decision.

    1:29.160 for Hamilton - at this rate, we're on course for yet another Mercedes walkover.

    They are talking about the stewarding in general.

    Valteri has a problem as he still needs to swap to a different tyre.

    GOOD JOB SEBASTIAN!
