shiepirate

Merc retro curse so powerful that even Bottas DNF'd


sheikhsabdullah

Lmao


Baited_

Alonso on radio comms was furious


sheikhsabdullah

Haha that was really funny. Very uncharacteristic of Lewis for doing such a hard move.


Fernandofan2008

Not if you watched him before he joined Mercedes


acynicalmoose

Or ask albon lol


A_Slovakian

Uncharacteristic for current Lewis though. Every young driver is aggressive. Lewis hasn't made a mistake or a hard move like that in quite a while


TessTickols

You don't do those moves when your car is 1s+ faster per lap.


barbarian772

Silverstone last year?


denzien

Only, this time Hamilton Lewised himself


IllustriousYak6283

Between Silverstone and the two collisions with Albon that helped scuttle his RB career, Hamilton has had a lot of indefensible collisions. The criticism is long overdue.


yeetyeet287

Getting lapped by his teammate is what scuttled his red bull career lmao.


ItsMeTwilight

It’s alonso lmao the history gives him ptsd and he thinks he’s still young


mesovortex888

Bottas was unlucky as hell

Sinistrait

Post new contract Perez has been an absolute disaster


T4Gx

Technically he won Monaco after the new contract. Post-Monaco yacht afterparty* Perez has been a disaster.


onebandonesound

Marriage counseling confirmed worst base for F1


tothesource

I mean, he was never supposed to win today. Just make room for max


onebandonesound

Obviously his role for the rest of the season is guarantee Max wraps up WDC ASAP, and secondarily finish as high as possible for WCC. I just think it's notable that his form has dropped off a cliff since he was publicly called out for, at minimum, questionable behavior for a married man with a newborn, and at worst flagrantly cheating on his wife shortly after she birthed their third child. I don't think those two things are unrelated.


SnooOwls2740

No one really knows if he cheated or not. We saw a couple of seconds from a video. Whatever happens in his private life is not our concern, specially when he has been seen happy with his family. People really should stop bringing the same subject all over again, so we can actually respect their private lifes. His performance is not on top because he has not been able to adapt to the upgrades made to the car. He tests more every practice and he has not found his setup. Now his start today was awful, he has ton of things to correct, but not because of his private life, but merely racing things he should be better at.


Butterbigsby29

Yeah, I think people don’t consider the cars development has been centered around Max’s driving style.


Dmienduerst

If he had drove off into the sunset then he gets to win the race. Fact is max is disappearing in first from 13th place....


drummybear67

And yet he's 3rd in the WDC and got P2 today... Lol Edit: now he's 2nd in the WDC


I_Am_Vladimir_Putin

Finishes second lmao


KingRo48

Reddit at some stage said he was better than Max and should let Max overtake


Swiss-ArmySpork

Pre new contract Perez wasn't much better.


pmmerandom

he was great before he signed his contract lol


mss_kwt

great is a bit of a stretch mate


pmmerandom

he won Monaco? and his lowest finish was 4th and was runner-up three times, where’s this all coming from


Doyoueverjustlikeugh

He won Monaco post contract


CoxHazardsModel

I’ll say he was good, much better than post-Monaco, but idk about “great” considering RB and Ferrari’s car pace vs rest of the teams at the beginning of the year. Top 4 doesn’t as much as you’d want us to think. He was doing his job at the beginning of the year.


kolsonk

Yeah what was Sergio doing??


Baited_

It looked like he knew Alonso was gonna have a good opening


generalofhel

wanting to attack on sainz and just completely misses his start. And he somehow is still in second too, which is a miracle and a half


Poopy_sPaSmS

He wanted to try a Grosjean


FartingBob

Given how turn 1 is, im not sure what he thought would happen. Unless Sainz stalled on the line he was never going to drive in a straight line at that angle into the lead, and he messed it up so badly he lost 3 places, was very lucky that Hamilton crashed into alonso and Russell had to take evasive action.


teamramrod637

I understand trying to cut off Fernando since Sainz was on softs, but I think Alonso got a WAY better start than Perez expected.


kenzoismyname

wtf is happening lmao


ExistingReach9658

Not just ham but bottas now. Fuck.


HendoJay

And as is tradition; bad luck for Bottas. Great driving to avoid the collision.


kolsonk

Lewis was flying there


mahijendra

No wonder his floor was fucked


LiNGOo

Everything was fucked *proceeds to block the entire pack on the racing line as if nothing happendd

He drank red bull??

On the onboard it looked like a little bump

Maybe he should've left the space

TO


Poopy_sPaSmS

Unfortunately I have to say yes. I initially put it on Alonso but after the replays I hate to say it. That was on Lewis


Psychomantis200

Absolutely his fault


KingBlue2

That was his fault


CreepyKraken

Yeah I was like the fuk dude just take a bit wide


mahijendra

This glue gun circuit is so fun


SkillIsTooLow

What does this mean? (Sorry, am dumb)


gnatzors

The track layout looks like it's in the shape of a glue applicator. Or a sub-machine gun.


qoofp

always thought it looks like a uzi


SciK3

the circuit looks like a glue gun, or really any gun


uplynk

My dad and i agreed on star trek phaser


OrangeLimeZest

Alonso: Don't try it. Hamilton: Tries it.


Den_dar_Alex

Mercedes engine: dies from it


Raphaelrimeru

as a hamilton fan, this was the kindest iv ever seen alonso drive, he left tonnes of space


Wade_W_Wilson

That was the wild part. Lewis expected Alonso to hit the brakes and crash into everyone behind.


Peter_Panarchy

Maybe he thought that because there was so much room there was no way Alonso was there. He said later that it was definitely his fault and he just didn't see him there.


Wade_W_Wilson

It was one of the first turns in the opening lap. If anyone knows the statistics on available open spaces in the first lap, it’s Lewis.


Peter_Panarchy

Well yeah, that's why he readily admitted fault.


Stevolwo

Alonso always leaves space, what?


MarchAgainstOrange

YOU WERE THE CHOSEN ONE

But Hamilton had the high ground!

Lewis flew

Still He Rose.


kimoalmoa

Absolutely cursed season man ffs


Snoo_43411

Not a lot has been fault this year but that was all Lewis. Never should’ve squeezed that much going into the turns


stupidyute

It's so disappointing as well


Snoo_43411

Yeah shit happens, even to the very best. It’s frustrating as hell when it’s a year like this too Surely people won’t constantly bring it up to justify his teams mistakes like the car being useless or anything, I’m sure :)))


P_ZERO_

Yeah well he’s been pretty bloody blessed all the other years


pmmerandom

not really cursed when he tried to do what he did, that was 100% Lewis’ fault


OB1182

Self curse.


GTAinreallife

He closed the door and ignored Alonso. Other cars don't disappear. Nothing cursed season, a driver error


Nobinwasp

Cursed? This is his first and only DNF. Incredibly lucky. His only DNF has come from a moronic and terrible error you’d expect from a rookie driver. He’s had a very lucky season.


nerf-me-ubi

Meanwhile Goatifi doing Goatifi things off the rip and max already marching towards 1st


MySilverBurrito

What the fuck Spa. Edit: lmaoooo Nando's radio [paraphrasing] "This guy only knows how to drive from first"


not_flipperkip

The radio was hilarious. He's still so incredibly bitter.

[удалено]


MudkipThot

It’s rough seeing two younger people come in and achieve more success than you in every measurable way.


nopainauchocolat

alonso is yielding there if it’s anyone but hamilton


VIFASIS

He would've parked the car if it was Max.


nopainauchocolat

parked it, turned the engine off, got out, and applauded


VIFASIS

It was comical watching his "blue flag yielding" last year.


pms17

But he did yield


some-swimming-dude

Why are people blaming Alonso? Im a massive Hamilton, but Alonso gave him room.


Bashead__

I'm a massive Hamilton also


Scatman_Crothers

I’m a medium Hamilton


Mariannalol

I agree


filipv

Who's blaming Alonso?


Empre55_Alex

I've seen a lot of people on YouTube are.


TheFudge

Hamilton even admitted he was at fault.


4hunnidbrka

that was just awful from lewis man wth, same vibes with his crashes with albon


BayleyToKairo

2007 vibes


PattuX

When he said "the old teammates" it caught me fully off guard. Crazy that's 15 years ago already.


CrowdTeacher

who wouldve thought that these two would battle it out on track ever again. good times


maarkwong

ALL THE TIME


uhujkill

Lewis didn't leave enough space, I'm afraid.


AliceInGainzz

Uncharacteristically poor judgement from Lewis there.


TwistedFisterss

lol first time he's got the worst of a situation like this you mean? Otherwise it's usually the other car that goes crashing when Lewis want's all space to himself..


yung_boza

Not the first time he forgets to leave space when fighting for position. Alonso’s radio said it best.


gillymuse

All drivers have examples of it


InspectorArse

It’s not really, he often does things like this whilst overtaking, he just hasn’t had to do it that much for a decade


gillymuse

This notion that he's bad at wheel to wheel is such a bad take


notathr0waway1

"Hamilton rises up!" Crofty's been saving that one for a while.


bluetherealdusk

What is Hamilton doing there? He closed in too much


BorderlineGambler

Must of thought he was a lot further ahead than he was


bluetherealdusk

Yeah, I dont really think he needs a penalty, its just a pity because it seemed like it would be an interesting part of the race. 😔


Rust1991

This is a textbook penalty for causing a collision. Intent doesn't matter.


thegallus

yeah definitely his fault. shame, I think a podium was possible.


MillyMan105

Love Lewis he's my guy but that collision was 100% his fault I'm not sure what he was expecting to happen.


BananaBrute

Props to Hamilton shutting down the interviewer after his race wanting him to comment on Alonso's remarks. He simply admitted fault and wants to move on.


DjPerzik

Yeah perfect response. No need for drama. He was wrong, admitted in, that should be it.


brucebrowde

Is there a video of that interview somewhere online? Edit: found it posted in another thread https://www.reddit.com/r/formula1/comments/wzwxvw/lewis_hamilton_admits_fault_shuts_down_interviewer/


matsdebats

The runoff area being sand already having massive impact


YoSouZaBoy

This one’s a frustrating one as a fan of HAM looked like with the space Alonso he’d have still got the move done. Totally his fault.


DieLegende42

Hamilton left zero space, 100% his fault


Username8831

Less than zero space. Sigh.


Moist_Adeptness_8886

This


Are_We_Us

Vettel "pushing" Stroll into the gravel was a cheeky Monza 2021 retaliation. Great stuff


tedstery

Real amateur mistake by Lewis there, Alonso literally gave him all da space


Caronry

Seb from p10 to p5.. love it i hope he can keep it going for a strong point position


tomadamsmith

Perez’s opening move is an example of why his teammate who started 15th is the favourite to win instead of him who started P2


antelope591

Unnecessary move from Hamilton. Seems like frustration from the way the weekend's been going overall bubbling over. Didn't need to pull such a risky move there especially against Alonso.


On_The_Blindside

Why especially against Alonso?


jospence

Definitely on Hamilton, very uncharictaristic


Sriracha_Breath

Driving desperate.


Cheokster

All the time you have to leave the space!


sean_0

And lewis didnt


rakesh-69

hamilton didn't


BKtheInfamous

ALONSO AND STARTING AT THE FROMT OF THE GRID — NAME A BETTER COMBO 💀💀💀


CilanEAmber

I'm sure the conversation about this will be civil.


SHORT-CIRCUT

VETTEL P5 STOP THE COUNT


palexanderjpg

Absolutely Lewis’s fault


ygtkara

lewis was flying for p2, and then he actually flew


National-Fig4803

Dammit Lewis.


spoonman_82

lol you know it's 100% Hamilton's fault when even good old Crofty can't defend him :D


ptwonline

Pretty amateurish by Lewis there. Not sure what he was thinking. Watched a bit back in the midfield and Stroll got really unlucky. First he got held up by the slower Danny Ric in front of him and Vettel got past him. Then he went to pass Vettel but at the same moment Danny Ric also changed line ahead of Vettel and Stroll got stopped by Ric again. Then Vettel squeezed Stroll off the track and he fell back a couple of spots and ended up stuck behind Albon and unable to pass him. Always interesting how some little things at the start of a race can make such a big difference between one guy (Vettel) having a good result, and his teammate (Stroll) being disappointing.


VosPaco

SENSATION! What a crazy start!


minimalis

Pointless fucking squeeze from Hamilton.


XxMETALLICATxX

Totally in Hamilton with those replays.


grumpypenguin1

How anyone in here is blaming Alonso is ridiculous


manhaterxxx

I respect Lewis a lot but that’s 100% on him.


alper_iwere

This might be the worst move from Hamilton ever. You can't expect Alonso to back off.


Goh2000

I'd say it's on par for worst, tapping Verstappen off the track by refusing to take the racing line at 280 kph was similarly stupid


Jcw28

"I just turned in on him man"


dinosaur1831

Why is everyone blaming Alonso here? Hamilton clearly cut him off.


Splitshot_Is_Gone

What comments are you reading?


dinosaur1831

All the initial comments seemed to be blaming Alonso.


HeasYaBertdeyPresent

"everyone" isn't blaming Alonso. What are you talking about? 🤔


creditcardtheft

People hella mad that it’s not Alonso’s fault


Yavin87

Hamilton's fault. Give some fking space man.


Fietsterreur

Chadlonso radio message. Idiotic move from Lewis


TheMadMat

Who could have Seen that coming


GarminArseFinder

Stinker from Hamilton there. Ffs


djbrux

How did the camera man miss the most crucial Bit 🤦‍♂️


Duy2910

Traditions


PioneerTurtle

Crofty on it again!


Nuzhuz

Did anyone notice the yellow film of liquid coming out of the back of Ham’s car after contact? No one has acknowledged this anywhere that I’ve seen.


mahijendra

Lewis and alonso back at it agian


OrphanSaturn

Yeah that's not Alonso's fault on replay. Lap 1 shenanigan.


WokeGoebbels

"He only knows how to start in firts" LOL


Shekster

Uncharacteristically amateur-level driving from Lewis of all people. Alonso was hugging the inside kerb and gave him all the room yet he still had to cut across into him for no reason...


imShyness

>Alonso: "This guy only knows how to start in first" LOL


Turti8

Hamiltons fault


Kolec507

What was Lewis even... ahh I'm heartbroken


creditcardtheft

Look at the race thread, some of y’all are so incredibly mad at Alonso haha. The fact that isn’t not his fault makes you even madder


NoisyBoy894

I'm still not recovered from that sick burn by Alonso


VDV23

Hamilton driving like his late braking + outside move makes this his corner is absurd. Alonso lucky to still be in it, really boneheaded from Hamilton here


usandholt

Again Hamilton involved. Maybe it wasnt Kmags fault with their small touches but just Hamilton who races like a dork in midfield.


bobthedonkeylurker

I mean... HAM's been racing in the midfield all season with how many incidents and how many places gained?.


HueGray

This was on Lewis, but it’s very obvious how much Alonzo can’t stand him


powerchicken

That was entirely on Lewis for squeezing Alonso. Alonso is usually too aggressive defending, but this wasn't on him.


thelazyboa

Lewis tasting the Hamilton special


911__

When will Hamilton learn? You always have to leava the space!


MijnnaamiFbeeFt

Italian accent: *Leav-a da space-a!* [plentiful hand gestures]

Alonso comment on Lewis was savage
