    Under f1 rules the car on the inside has the right to stay there so I'd say it was down to max they are the rules and both drivers know that . So I would put it down to max .

    There are no rules saying that a driver MUST hit the Apex of the corner, they do to get maximum exit speed. To me was that Max tried to clip the Apex from the outside while fully aware of the fact that Lewis was alongside him.

    Disagree, Max compromised Lewis' line so much into Copse he didn't have much choice but to miss, make a late apex or back out. Max turns into the corner like normal disregarding that Lewis' can't suddenly disappear. Max expected Lewis' to back out. Live by the sword moment...

    I wanted anyone but Mercedes to win this year's Championship until I've had to constantly listen to the whining from RB about what to all intents and purposes was a racing incident. Lewis has been letting Max take all the 50/50s until this point in the season, but realising now that the RB was going to remain the faster car for the whole season and being his home GP, he decided to get his elbows out and it worked out. If Max doesn't ever want to back off in 50/50 situations then why should the other driver. Game on now and I don't mind now if the Mercs win as long as that whining Horner and Marco are shut up!

    I'm not sure even Hamilton steered more the contact would be avoided, because he gone for the overtaking and Verstappen closed the gate. It looks like it would be just different parts touching. I think 2 things made Hamilton take this decision: 1) He knew that was the only chance to win the race and still be a contender the the championship, due what he saw in the sprint race. 2) Verstappen is bully on the track that behave like Hamilton did in the British GP and always expect that the other drivers avoid the crash and he thounght "not this time". (Here's a good compilation of this behavior: delevel.info/stream/nqSloIyenZh5aYs/video.html)

    It is ridiculous from Hamilton to say that he didn't have enough space when there is space to his right to put another F1 car there. Then the penalty, which is absurd. In my country the penalty depends on the damage caused; if you make another driver to lose positions; you are pushed behind him; if you make another driver to exit the race, you are black flagged, I think it is more fair than 10 seconds

    I also think Lewis was getting too testy on the first lap - he was trying so desperately to get ahead but Max would come back after his moves and pull something off just as good to get back in front. At the end of the day as you said, if you understeer and ram someone, it's totally on you no buts and no ifs. Everyone who is saying max should've gone wider doesn't understand how that corner even looks or drives in reality, the exit is a kink back to the right before the entry into the Maggots and Beckett's complex, your exit is on the left side before slightly adjusting to the right for the left entry that follows. Lewis was always going to be coming across at that speed even if they didn't make contact mid corner. Max had track position and was defending, he is in the right to do this and like in road driving, if you're the one behind and cause an accident, you're at fault. I'm really tired of hearing excuses being made for Hamilton, just admit that he's human and made a mistake. The cheering and gloating while Max was sent to hospital was also not on, no admission of responsibility from Mercedes is pretty pathetic.

    Poor analysis imo, it's a racing incident, as put by Chandook and Brundle (both ex F1 drivers that know what they're talking about), they both went it with aggressive intentions and Max paid the price, simple. Look at all previous races, Lewis has yielded countless times, he's a 7 times world champion, you can't expect him to drive that "perfect" line as you put it, Max would have done the exact same thing if they were in opposite positions.

    Every current driver on the grid has not condemed the FIA's punishment against Lewis, but they know the track, rules, and cars, and have seen and been involved in past and present overtakes at Copse, in F1 and F2 and they all say "RACING INCIDENT". Trying to argue against the current racing drivers who know, is a pointless waste of time as far as I am concerned.

    The car on the inside line of a corner entry has the tactical advantage of the spot for corner entry and to hold the inside line. Blaming the car that holds the inside line into a corner, without reckless movement, for causing the car on the outside line to increase steering wheel input and collide into the inside car, is not how auto-racing basics works. It took a measured movement of the outside-line car to make contact with the inside-line car going through the corner. This is an incident that Max and his spotters created by not holding his line. Lewis did nothing improper nor did he cause the collision. Max failed to hold the space between cars and caused his own crash by failing to hold his own line knowing Lewis is still inside of Max's car. Max's spotters should've been informing him "Inside!" and his right-side mirrors are full of Lewis. It's Racing 101! The inside car has the line through the corner. The outside car has to yield to the inside car's line. Regardless of "who has the lead", when two cars enter a corner and they are within space of, next to each other, the cars are required to hold their respective line without colliding. The furtive movement was caused by the outside car. The outside car lost the battle of the corner.

    A few corners before, Hamilton had the lead a drove around the outside of the corner giving back the lead. Lived to fight on... Max turned in, then seen Hamilton and momentarily turned out then turned in hard, if you watch Max’s on board. Max is not built to give an inch and suffered for it. Furthermore, the rules state that if the car on the inside has its front axle past the mid point of the outside car at the entry of the corner, the inside car has the corner. Max had plenty of room to live to fight on, just like Hamilton did earlier. Addressing the point about understeer, Hamilton probably had some but would have easily made the corner. The car was unsettled when the RedBull made contact and Hamilton still never left the track. Finally, we often see the inside car push the outside car in corners. How many times has Hamilton been pushed off by Rosberg by giving him room? I am sorry but I totally disagree with your assessment.

    In general, I don't agree with Scott's general principle of "being ahead" in racing situations. It's too codified, it eliminates risk v reward, the beauty of racing, and it suggests that Hamilton did not have a right to be there, it also suggests that Max can just turn in and ignore the car on the inside because he is ahead. It's a bit flawed to wholly apportion blame through this principle given the championship situation and what's at stake. Entitlement to the corner does not only rely on being ahead, it relys on how far alongside the attacking driver is on entry, in this case, around 90%. Chain Bear F1 illustrates this extremely well in his video. Racing should be considered to be a dance, rather than rules of the road style apportion of blame.

  • Anthony Andrea

    Without blaming anybody - the fact is Max was the loser in this incident. Your fellow racers are going to make mistakes sometimes - that is racing - the question is - was it the right time for Max to go all or nothing? No. He could have backed out and lived to fight on from P2. Lewis may have made an error - Yes. But Max - by relying on Lewis to drive different to or from how he in fact drove - put his fate into the lap of the Gods. namely Lewis whom he elevated to the status of deity Lewis is a huge winner psychologically from this - the outcoming moaning and the complaining from Max and Horner and Red Bull - is also psychologically damaging for Max. If Red Bull just said:- OK both drivers messed up - that is racing - let us all try to do better next time - he would have had dignity - and maintained semblance of psychological equality with Lewis. He has given that all away. Max has now declared himself to be a loser and inferior. Lewis has declared himself to be a warrior and superior.

    Peter AntinucciVor 16 Stunden

    From a sportsmanship perspective, a fair pass is one that gives your opponent a clear choice to avoid crashing. In my opinion, Hamilton's pass at Copse did not do this. He was nowhere near the fastest line which has a super wide entry, and would have exited much slower. It does not seem to me like he gave Max enough time to see him and make a choice to correct. Hitting the apex point at Copse is extremely difficult as Hamilton explains himself delevel.info/stream/nou7aoB6jX6djIM/video.html. Look at his racing line in the video.... the line he was taking in the overtake might be acceptable at slower speeds where the opponent would have time to see and react. Hamilton was nowhere near the racing line, was going to exit significantly slower. He took an irresponsible risk that relied on Max pulling back but didn't give him the time to be able to react. I think it was dirty. Furthermore, as you can see in the following video delevel.info/stream/c5q3q3GBqHeMnIc/video.html the steering wheel motion Hamilton uses to approach Copse in his pole lap in 2017, involves a significant steering correction, which is extremely similar to Max's steering correction on his approach before the crash. Ive heard commentators say that steering wheel correction is due to Max seeing Lewis, but I'm not so sure Max ever saw him. Easy to see it in replay slow motion and say that Max saw him and decided not to correct. I think he was correcting an understeer. Max was on the fastest line. It would be nice to see Hamilton's telemetry through the corner, relative to a clean lap.

    Agree fully with your analysis….Verstappen is on a “natural turn” line (despite Leclerc statement, but if the second catches with the first both in terms of drivers and manufacturers, this is favorable to a possible remontada) and Verstappen leaves enough room on both sides for a “faster and controlled F1” but at that time they aren’t any. Hamilton came faster (strait line at low pitch less drag, shorter distance to travel inside, powerful MB, etc) and after the incident the Mercedes proved also to be much harder on the tires than other cars. so here, coming in faster and braking more on the inside, but also largely too late behind to get ahead and drift out to close the door..Lewis H. was definitely going to oversteer MORE and so he went strait into the Red Bull from the back side and so hard that it broke the suspension studs. A possible aggravating root cause could be that Lewis messed it up with the pitch controlled feature with the axial pressure onto the steering wheel causing excessive un-pitched oversteer. To me that is definitely not a normal race incident where both cars move sidewise onto each other’s simultaneously leaving no time to either driver to react…being on the inside, Hamilton has no priority to interfere with someone on the turn normal path….but being a British driver at a British Grand Prix, any fair assessment is nearly impossible and Red Bull is right to seek litigation because these stock cars behaviours must stop.

    Copse, under normal circumstances in these current cars, is taken in 6th gear, completely flat, with the car positioned to the left side of the track as it approaches entry point. Any non-crash footage shows every car taking a virtually identical line. It is (amazingly) a totally no-problem corner to take at 290kph from the correct entry line. Hamilton's positioning of his car at the entry point was meters away from a position where the corner could be successfully negotiated flat out in 6th gear. This was a move by someone who would rather crash than have to stand on the second step of the podium, beneath Max Verstappen, in front of his adoring British fans. I wouldn't be at all surprised if something very similar was to happen at Zandvoort........with Hamilton again as the instigator.

    Well, do we really understand the meaning of RACING? When we commit to join the race, we are prepared to accept & facing any circumstances and risks of racing. Don’t blame anyone or others or situations when incidents happen!!! Ask your self why you join the race in the first place? Race is a race, not a zoo tour???? Come on! don’t judge - if you don’t recognize the RISKS of racing then don’t join the race!!! Don’t judge as if we are experts! The expert only expert when they don’t simply judge and blaming.

    Nah. Max misjudged Lewis’ BALLS!!! Rather he ran wide or not, 🤷🏾‍♂️. Max is just as aggressive in most instances. Stop your CRYING! Prayers for Max & Congrats to Hamilton! ON TO THE NEXT!

    Exactly! Alonso said racing incident, Leclerc said racing incident, Karun Chandhok said racing incident, Jolyon Palmer said racing incident, NICO ROSBERG, said racing incident. And this guy I've never heard of says it's 100% Lewis's fault.

    Dissapointing, you completely ignored Max's double movement on the wheel after looking in the mirror (Schumacher Jerez 97) and the image you used is after contact so Lewis is ofcourse sliding wide. In the in car replay you can see Lewis cannot be any further right (its a long apex) and is not understerring until Max's second yank on the wheel to cut across him. Watch it again from in car frame by frame. Im a big Max fan but look up "max lance stroll crash portugal" or "max lewis spain" Max is super agressive but this time his rival was like nah. Good stuff and fair racing.

    I really dont get all the understeer analysis, he really didnt. Watch it in car again, its a very long corner, he really couldnt have been any further right because then his exit would have been impossoble.

    Kimi is my favorite driver, but, I'm black and there's only one in F1, so I'm certainly a bit biased... but, hear me out. Being behind in a race by 10sec is almost like the time it took Bezos to go to space and back. If you got a 10sec penalty, then go on to win the race, comfortably, in my opinion, *i don't care who's at fault.* By the latter stages of that race, we knew who would win. Come on! LH should not have won, but he did... Moving on!

    Don't think I agree. Hamilton has no obligation to hit apex, entered the corner alongside. Max chopped over to the right with little regard for the position of Hamilton's car. It's a racing incident in the most neutral interpretation. But given they both knew the stakes, both established the ROE with the first couple of corners, entered copse corner alongside each other... both had to assume the other car still in play. Max slashed to the right belligerently. I think it's on him.

    Tbh, I don't really criticize Hamilton for the crash, it's hard racing, it happens. But the problem is the punishment to Hamilton, should've been disqualified. And then Hamilton seemed more ignorant during the race win tho...

    When you are inside in a corner and are significantly alongside the outer driver, the corner belongs to the inner driver, that's the rule, i don't know why these people are blaming lewis, just to suck up to verstappen fan boys. Complete garbage analysis. You should know the rules atleast before commenting on F1 as an analyst.

    Everything is factual in this analysis, that’s all there is too in my eyes. Hamilton made a desperate, unwise commitment. It wasn’t on purpose by any means, but a big mistake by Hamilton, yet lewis won the race.
