I'm not an expert in psychology but it looks like the slight hesitation in Lewis' turning might be a sign of weakness. Max on the other hand seems strong and determined. I wouldn't be surprised if this would result in a strong win for Max this weekend.

I'm actually an expert in psychology and my take is that you are just looking for karma. Where did I become an expert in psychology? Reddit.

I'm an actual expert in psychology. How did I become an expert in psychology? Grad school.... I agree with you.

Looking back to see if he needed jump in and hold Lewis down for Max. All those team orders just echoing in his head.

Wasn’t Valterri also a witness when Max assaulted Ocon in Brazil?

Somehow he always gets the best seat.

Not for much longer.

I feel like their entourages need to be posturing and snapping their fingers rhythmically as they walk past each other.

svenhoek86

No don't you see the hate in their eyes? Don't you see the fire within Max the second he looks at Lewis? Oh wait I just saw the video, they just kind of nodded at each other and went on their way. Shit nm.

Play it in slow mo with Buxton narrating about the hate and vitriol that both have for each other. Followed by the crash footage with Hamilton twirling his mustache.


XNights

It's gonna be a long summer break isn't it


supersemar_asli

Imagine if they take each other out again in Hungary.


baldingman_1998

Nah I want solid summer break drama. As such, the following sequence of events must happen 1. Red Bull lose protest - Check 2. Max's engine goes kaboom during FP1 3. Max tries what Hamilton did only to spin around and collect Perez in the process leading to a Mercedes 1-2 (This is the most important) If all these happen (esp 3), the meltdown will be utterly glorious. For real peak drama, Max's and Perez's engine should also both go kaboom when they collide.


Rosso_5

if this happens, what god does Lewis pray to to be this #blessed?


PM_ME_CHEESY_1LINERS

I got irrationally angry at you while reading this..


EccentricClassic3125

Are you sure you didn't get a bit jelly instead


j-r44

I think peak drama would be Verstappen colliding with Hamilton at Zandvoort and the crash is really similar, with Hamilton out of the race and Verstappen still in. Verstappen gets a minor penalty but overtakes Bottas with 2 laps to go to win and does a mad celebration like Lewis did. Mercedes protest this 2 weeks later and it is successful, disqualifying Max from the race retrospectively. And Russell was running 11th until the final lap where he went a bit wide at the final corner and lost a position to Latifi to fall to 12th, meaning he was only promoted to 11th and Latifi scored points before he did. Lance Stroll got COVID before this event and was replaced by Hulkenberg, who was running P4 for most of the race but was overtaken by Norris on the last lap to drop to P5, which was then promoted to P4 and Hulk still doesn’t have a podium. r/formula1 and social media in general explodes…


Ohwhat_anight

> And Russell was running 11th until the final lap where he went a bit wide at the final corner and lost a position to Latifi to fall to 12th, meaning he was only promoted to 11th and Latifi scored points before he did Why do you have to be this way? :(


WindsAndWords

The real reason I'm upset Hulkenberg isn't in f1 2021, I can't give him a podium


Cloudeur

And then Mercedes wins the rest of the season. “I’ve seen this one before!”


JebbAnonymous

People bitch about Mercedes sandbagging during pre-season testing, just to see that they took sandbagging to a whole new level, by "struggling" first half of the season, only to tell Lewis "Now you can push the throttle ALL the way down" and he wins last 12 races of the sesaon.


Gschu54

Oh god, what if merc is sandbagging so Red Bull keeps developing their car until after the summer break and then turns their engines up and gains a second a lap. I do think that merc has been playing with turning their engines up more. I think that's why Russell has been so successful in quali the last few races. Merc has been using them as a test bed for how much more they can crank their engines up before they fail.


PotatoMan19399

I would very much like this to be true just for the chaos


Treesarefortraction

Alonso would call this 9D chess.


Gschu54

Oh this would be at least 12d or 13d.

Lando's maiden win.

That would be glorious. It will be like the current drama we get times 10.


Slingbr

That is the type of thing we all should pray for. As long nobody gets hurt I mean.


marxie-the-mediocre

Russell in the points!


shp509

You mean Latifi in the points after Russell spins and drops to 11th?


ActingGrandNagus

Russell spins and ends up in 10th, where he stays until just before the end of the race where Alonso overtakes him.


Fitter511

Okay I was believing this storyline was possible up until your addition.


ShaneFM

That's not thinking big enough It's completely far fetched, but I have a far better candidate for ***maximum*** drama RB protest dismissed Engine goes boom in fp3, but it wasn't even the engine that was in the crash, Horner doesn't share that till Tuesday, RB and Merc fans are at each other throats until then over whether or not it was the damaged engine Merc are leading q3 1-2 with early laps they can't improve on, but max and checo are looking like they'll come put on top right before the session ends. But what's that? Russell just crashed in a weird spot and brought out the red flag. They call for an investigation, crashgate 2.0 Marko says, it's delayed Perez attempts an insane move on hamilton in the race, messes up collecting himself and max, out of the race, both cars crazy messed up, both drivers in the hospital for precautionary checks There's in investigation, the RB fans rejoice! Hamilton will get penalized and the alpha tauri's are both in podium places after the red flag if hamilton goes down! But what's that? Stewards rule it was entirely perez's fault and it was wholly reckless, 10 place grid penalty for the next race Hamilton lead bottas leads McLaren, leads Aston Martin, the alpha tauris had botched pit stops. The investigation on Russell finally comes out, the orange army is ready to go on a manhunt, it was a mechanical failure, no possible way it could have been planned Merc announces they're dropping Bottas on Monday, Russell wasn't looking too happy all weekend though, and they don't announce the replacement yet. RB announces perez will not be remaining with the team. Perez seems plenty happy though, is he retiring of his own volition or is that merc seat for him people wonder? A week later though, perez slips up in an interview hinting he was ordered to cause the accident to give max an advantage. The investigation drags out the entire season, just before the final round the results are released: disqualification from the championship, Marko is banned from the sport for having come up with the plan, Horner barely survived only because he cooperated It's entirely improbable, but imagine what DTS would look like if it did happen lmao (As I write this, phase 1 of both just happened, protest is dismissed)


IamBejl

There is a parallel universe where all of this will happen (if they exist ofc)


lolidk14

Keep going I’m so close


Defensive_of_Offense

Found Lewis' burner account


shinycube359

this would be the most evil, but somehow very beautiful thing if it happens


Nickovskii

Then I am collecting all races and show it to my grandkids one day. That would be insane, like drama level over 9.000. And would love it.


redditnoap

Every single instagram story/post that they make will be posted here for people to scrutinize. F1 media websites will write about how a certain post was a slick attack on their championship rival. F1 doesn't get a \*fierce\* championship battle for 5 years and forgets how to act when it finally happens.


Ok_Floor_7916

Long considered myself a neutral fan but I find myself rooting for RB and Max simply because if Merc wins the double again, we may quite literally never hear the end of this.


birdseedinthepark

Especially if Lewis wins by 25 points or less. I can hear the drama already.

longhornjeeplover

In the video, you can see that as the two entourages pass, the drivers all briefly exchange pleasantries, w/o pausing. However a still photo does a better job of creating drama where there was none.

Guys I heard rumors from a long time friend, who works in F1, that shortly after this confrontation, Lewis was seen drinking a bottle of water but with his LEFT HAND! We all know Lewis is right handed. My friend was understandably still in shock as he was telling me, so hopefully we get more news soon. I'm still sat here flabbergasted. I didn't things could get any more heated between them.

Reminds me of the opening of *Platoon*. When Charlie Sheen gets off the plane as a fresh recruit in Vietnam. He walks past some grizzled vet about to go home and their gazes meet. Really an iconic but overlooked scene from the film with how it was edited.

Max: You drank my milkshake! Lewis: "If you have a milkshake and I have a milkshake, and I have a straw, my straw reaches across the room and starts to drink your milkshake. I. Drink. Your. Milkshake! I drink it up!"


Malkaraukar

Max is definitely smiling under that mask.


Jaidaku

Man, i just want the race to start already.


Critical_Session1102

god I hate that there are masks now. They could very well be semi smiling or looking really angrily at each other. Or none of the above, and this photographer was just spamming clicks at very high rpm and he managed to find the 1 frame where they semi look angrily at each other


Idealyignorant

I doubt Drive to Survive will delve into this a lot, Max has expressed distaste for how they chop up things to fit their storyline. I doubt he will talk about it a lot. For example in the 2020 season there was no mention of why Lewis Hamilton was absent for once race (he got covid) seems like he didnt want it mentioned so they ignored it.


adam_f12003

I swear that Netflix told F1 to set up the press conference so that this would happen


javlaFaaan

Careful on the outside, boi


bono5361

Dunno about you guys but max definitely looks like he's smiling. His eyebrows. They definitely indicate a more positive face. They're playing us and the media lol


That-Dutch-Person

I desperately need the Hungarian GP to provide the F1 subreddit and F1 twitter with something to discuss because this discussion has lasted long enough IMO. Why can’t everyone be happy that at least we now have a close battle in the constructors and drivers championship. Regardless of whose side you are on, we should all be happy this season has not seen any single team dominate the whole way through.


Ickx-502

Is Lewis even looking at him there? Looks more like he’s looking towards Lando


Southportdc

On the video Max says hi (or nods or something something) whilst Lewis isn't really paying attention, Lewis then looks around and says hi back.

Journalists everywhere trying to come up with how to spin "hi" into something dramatic.
