    To me it looked like Vettel was just a trying not too get caught sleeping again like the previous start after the safety car when he was almost overtaken by Perez and just got it wrong coming out the corner when really Hamilton did nothing different in this restart then any of the previous restarts after the safety car

    Alonso close to signing a new contract with McLaren, as they switch out Honda for Renault.

    "He's very happy with the direction of the team and the team in general," said McLaren executive director Brown. Yeah, sounds like it on the radio, as he's basically slagged off the entire team at various stages, declared races as practice sessions and been let down by a shitty car with a shitty engine consistently for the whole of this season.

    Honestly, put him back in a Ferrari, Alonso would be up there fighting for podiums again. No clue why someone with his talent would drag out this sort of torture.

    Prob because the big teams don't want somebody who would slag off the team and treat races like practice sessions... :rolleyes:

    Doubt Ferrari, Red Bull, Mercedes, etc. would let him enter the Indy 500 though.

    Doubt he'd feel the need to race in it if he wasn't stuck with a bunch of clowns.

    Verstappen is such a liability. Took out Kimi and caused that entire incident. Glad his race is also over. Stupid little scrote.

    Don't agree with that, where was he meant to go? vetal came across him and he had yo go into vetal or kimi.

    Cant blame anyone imo, kimi didnt do anything, verstappen moved left into kimi but had to move as vetal came across him, but vetal had the lead so will go down as a racing incident.

    Kimi had the racing line. I think it's reasonable for him to think that nobody is going to swerve into him.

    Max proving once again that he's a child with a childish attitude.

    so if kimi had the racing lune, verstappen was more on the racing line than vetel? so surley vetal caused it by pushing verstappen out?

    you cant accuse verstappen for something that vetel did also. its both to blam or neither.

    Both Ferarris were in front of Verstappen when it happened. I don't see how you can blame that on Vettel at all. Verstappen had enough room to avoid both cars, but chose to collide into Kimi instead.

    Racing incident. Verstappen was forced over by vettel, kimi had a great start and clipped verstappens front wheel with his back as he passed him.

    No blame, no foul, just bad luck

    Watching replays from front on, the only car that makes any significant move is vettel, tries to force Verstappen to back off but neither could've guessed kimi would've had such a ripper off the line

    so what should verstappen do? stick on his breaks and cause people to go into the back of him?! no.

    I have said its a racing incident, verstappen had no where to go and there wasnt anywhere to go, even the commentators have said the same, seems to only be you saying verstappen is at fault (and showing your hate towards him so going by that you would)

    I don't hate him. I just think he's a liability. Let's see what the drivers themselves have to say about it as I'm pretty sure Kimi won't consider it to be merely a racing incident.

    Of course he wont, but thats why they have others to review and make an impartial decision.

    Glad to see the Ferraris out. How anyone can blame anyone but Vettel for that is beyond me. He unnecessarily swings across the track to try to scare Verstappen and causes the accident
