Merc retro curse so powerful that even Bottas DNF'd
Alonso on radio comms was furious
Haha that was really funny. Very uncharacteristic of Lewis for doing such a hard move.
Not if you watched him before he joined Mercedes
Or ask albon lol
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
You don't do those moves when your car is 1s+ faster per lap.
Silverstone last year?
Only, this time Hamilton Lewised himself
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.
Getting lapped by his teammate is what scuttled his red bull career lmao.
It’s alonso lmao the history gives him ptsd and he thinks he’s still young
Bottas was unlucky as hell
Post new contract Perez has been an absolute disaster
Technically he won Monaco after the new contract. Post-Monaco yacht afterparty* Perez has been a disaster.
Marriage counseling confirmed worst base for F1
I mean, he was never supposed to win today. Just make room for max
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.
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.
Yeah, I think people don’t consider the cars development has been centered around Max’s driving style.
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....
And yet he's 3rd in the WDC and got P2 today... Lol
Edit: now he's 2nd in the WDC
Finishes second lmao
Reddit at some stage said he was better than Max and should let Max overtake
Pre new contract Perez wasn't much better.
he was great before he signed his contract lol
great is a bit of a stretch mate
he won Monaco? and his lowest finish was 4th and was runner-up three times, where’s this all coming from
He won Monaco post contract
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.
Yeah what was Sergio doing??
It looked like he knew Alonso was gonna have a good opening
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
He wanted to try a Grosjean
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.
I understand trying to cut off Fernando since Sainz was on softs, but I think Alonso got a WAY better start than Perez expected.
wtf is happening lmao
Not just ham but bottas now. Fuck.
And as is tradition; bad luck for Bottas. Great driving to avoid the collision.
Lewis was flying there
No wonder his floor was fucked
Everything was fucked
*proceeds to block the entire pack on the racing line as if nothing happendd
Still we Rise
He drank red bull??
On the onboard it looked like a little bump
He got yeeted
Maybe he should've left the space
Say the line!
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
Absolutely his fault
That was his fault
Yeah I was like the fuk dude just take a bit wide
This glue gun circuit is so fun
What does this mean? (Sorry, am dumb)
The track layout looks like it's in the shape of a glue applicator.
Or a sub-machine gun.
always thought it looks like a uzi
the circuit looks like a glue gun, or really any gun
My dad and i agreed on star trek phaser
Alonso: Don't try it. Hamilton: Tries it.
Mercedes engine: dies from it
as a hamilton fan, this was the kindest iv ever seen alonso drive, he left tonnes of space
That was the wild part. Lewis expected Alonso to hit the brakes and crash into everyone behind.
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.
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.
Well yeah, that's why he readily admitted fault.
Alonso always leaves space, what?
YOU WERE THE CHOSEN ONE
But Hamilton had the high ground!
Nam 2007 flashback
Alonso radio was hilarious
Still He Rose.
Absolutely cursed season man ffs
Not a lot has been fault this year but that was all Lewis.
Never should’ve squeezed that much going into the turns
It's so disappointing as well
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 :)))
Yeah well he’s been pretty bloody blessed all the other years
not really cursed when he tried to do what he did, that was 100% Lewis’ fault
He closed the door and ignored Alonso. Other cars don't disappear. Nothing cursed season, a driver error
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.
Meanwhile Goatifi doing Goatifi things off the rip and max already marching towards 1st
What the fuck Spa.
Edit: lmaoooo Nando's radio [paraphrasing] "This guy only knows how to drive from first"
The radio was hilarious. He's still so incredibly bitter.
It’s rough seeing two younger people come in and achieve more success than you in every measurable way.
alonso is yielding there if it’s anyone but hamilton
He would've parked the car if it was Max.
parked it, turned the engine off, got out, and applauded
It was comical watching his "blue flag yielding" last year.
But he did yield
Why are people blaming Alonso? Im a massive Hamilton, but Alonso gave him room.
I'm a massive Hamilton also
I’m a medium Hamilton
Who's blaming Alonso?
I've seen a lot of people on YouTube are.
Hamilton even admitted he was at fault.
that was just awful from lewis man wth, same vibes with his crashes with albon
When he said "the old teammates" it caught me fully off guard. Crazy that's 15 years ago already.
who wouldve thought that these two would battle it out on track ever again. good times
ALL THE TIME
Lewis didn't leave enough space, I'm afraid.
Uncharacteristically poor judgement from Lewis there.
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..
Not the first time he forgets to leave space when fighting for position. Alonso’s radio said it best.
All drivers have examples of it
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
This notion that he's bad at wheel to wheel is such a bad take
"Hamilton rises up!" Crofty's been saving that one for a while.
What is Hamilton doing there? He closed in too much
Must of thought he was a lot further ahead than he was
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. 😔
This is a textbook penalty for causing a collision. Intent doesn't matter.
yeah definitely his fault. shame, I think a podium was possible.
Love Lewis he's my guy but that collision was 100% his fault I'm not sure what he was expecting to happen.
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.
Yeah perfect response. No need for drama. He was wrong, admitted in, that should be it.
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/
The runoff area being sand already having massive impact
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.
Hamilton left zero space, 100% his fault
Less than zero space. Sigh.
Vettel "pushing" Stroll into the gravel was a cheeky Monza 2021 retaliation. Great stuff
Real amateur mistake by Lewis there, Alonso literally gave him all da space
Seb from p10 to p5.. love it i hope he can keep it going for a strong point position
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
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.
Why especially against Alonso?
Definitely on Hamilton, very uncharictaristic
All the time you have to leave the space!
And lewis didnt
ALONSO AND STARTING AT THE FROMT OF THE GRID — NAME A BETTER COMBO 💀💀💀
I'm sure the conversation about this will be civil.
VETTEL P5 STOP THE COUNT
Absolutely Lewis’s fault
lewis was flying for p2, and then he actually flew
lol you know it's 100% Hamilton's fault when even good old Crofty can't defend him :D
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.
SENSATION! What a crazy start!
Pointless fucking squeeze from Hamilton.
Totally in Hamilton with those replays.
How anyone in here is blaming Alonso is ridiculous
I respect Lewis a lot but that’s 100% on him.
This might be the worst move from Hamilton ever. You can't expect Alonso to back off.
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
"I just turned in on him man"
Why is everyone blaming Alonso here? Hamilton clearly cut him off.
What comments are you reading?
All the initial comments seemed to be blaming Alonso.
"everyone" isn't blaming Alonso. What are you talking about? 🤔
People hella mad that it’s not Alonso’s fault
Hamilton's fault. Give some fking space man.
Chadlonso radio message. Idiotic move from Lewis
Who could have Seen that coming
Stinker from Hamilton there. Ffs
How did the camera man miss the most crucial Bit 🤦♂️
Crofty on it again!
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.
Lewis and alonso back at it agian
Yeah that's not Alonso's fault on replay. Lap 1 shenanigan.
"He only knows how to start in firts" LOL
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...
>Alonso: "This guy only knows how to start in first"
What was Lewis even... ahh I'm heartbroken
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
I'm still not recovered from that sick burn by Alonso
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
Again Hamilton involved. Maybe it wasnt Kmags fault with their small touches but just Hamilton who races like a dork in midfield.
I mean... HAM's been racing in the midfield all season with how many incidents and how many places gained?.
This was on Lewis, but it’s very obvious how much Alonzo can’t stand him
That was entirely on Lewis for squeezing Alonso. Alonso is usually too aggressive defending, but this wasn't on him.
Lewis tasting the Hamilton special
When will Hamilton learn? You always have to leava the space!
Italian accent: *Leav-a da space-a!* [plentiful hand gestures]
Alonso comment on Lewis was savage
