It didn’t stop there, though. At last weekend’s Singapore Grand Prix, Vettel had a bad start off pole position. Max Verstappen and Kimi Raikkonen both got much better starts and were alongside Vettel almost instantly. Realizing this, Vettel veered all the way across the track, pinching Verstappen in between both Ferraris. This caused a massive collision, ending the race for all three drivers.
Sebastian got away with it, too. The stewards deemed it a racing incident.
I read it as he'd realised he'd had a bad start and went to cover the line, not he realised Verstappen or Raikkonen were there and went to force them up against the wall.This is not true:
Seb might have seen Max but he didn't see Kimi. The mirrors are not 50cm wide. If he wanted to cause chaos, he would have gone straight into Lewis in the first corner. It was a race incident. One that may have cost him the championship.
Apart from this, I think the article is interesting.
Not advanced enough to get me to bother to look though it.-acts like Germans are the only naughty-boy nationality in F1.
-ignores that it was Verstappen, not Danny, that pissed Seb off in Mexico
-pretends Vettel veered into Max, who veered into Kimi, and not some another way around
It's not just clickbait guys, this is.... advanced clickbait.
I read it as he'd realised he'd had a bad start and went to cover the line, not he realised Verstappen or Raikkonen were there and went to force them up against the wall.
He did kinda get away with it though. Had that been Kvyat, Magnussen or Grosjean, they'd be getting two or three penalty points. Although he very much didn't get away with it in that his title challenge is in a considerably poorer position as a result. Perhaps the FIA felt that was punishment enough, or that penalty points or grid penalties would affect the championship even further.
F1 is crumbling and losing fans with Mercedes domination, let's not kid ourselves Mercedes has already won there 4th straight drivers/constructors title. Mercedes shaped these engine regs and are dominating with them. F1 needs to change the regs fast.
As a Hamilton fan (but not a fan of his team) and one of vettels harshest critics, it doesn't change the fact that if F1 wants to keep viewers it needs a title fight, and ONE incident with SIX races left has all but ensured Mercedes title in most people's eyes, that proves too much domination. People will say 'ah but F1 was always like that' but it's now 2017 with F1 in new owners hands and wanting new fans it needs to evolve. Systems and an effort need to be put in place as ensure it isn't one sided like it is, it's been a bit of a con to think Ferrari had a real chance this year most of it was down to Mercedes mistakes(headrest for example) just look at the qualify performance of the merc.
Let's remember Mercedes had these engine in planning when the regs were up for change and they also pushed the no testing ban, knowing they had th jump on everybody
Even though I didn't. I clicked on the thread, saw the title and commented based on that. I couldn't tell you a sentence they wrote in there. For all I know, it could have been a completely different topic in the base article.While I agree with you, the arguments you make imply that you did read it.
No. These articles are garbage clickbait and I refuse to read them.
Good to hear I'm definitely not the only one with the same feeling. I hate Clickbait headlines and it's one of the reasons I hate BuzzFeed and now DriveTribe and WTF1. They're usually Clickbait headlines to garbage content and from guessing from the title, this is no different.I am so glad this is the first thing I read when I came straight here to write a similar sentiment.
@GTPNewsWire I am going to make a point of not clicking any further articles that start with questions as a general point.
I have watched GTPlanet grow over the past ten years since my joining and have always been happy with the steady improvements made, but this latest spat of clickbait-tier headlines is a huge turn off and to me, suggests GTPlanet might be taking a step too far into the also-ran news category.
EDIT: Maybe I spend too much time here and the majority of un-offensive news article titles get drowned out as white noise. My post is grossly exaggerated as a quick look back shows far more positive titles than negative.
While I did overreact, I will humbly ask that this not become a trend and articles like these do not become more popular.
