Max really gonna bitch about Russell? He would do the same shit. He's turning into a cry baby lately
It’s crazy how he would sooner crash than yield to another car, but when people don’t yield to him he loses his shit. When you drive like you’re the only one on the track you can’t be surprised when there’s contact

I’m glad Russell didn’t cave

Well at least I got a good nap in during the middle part of this race. Wish Alonso could've pushed more. I'm sure he was trying :ROFLMAO:

but jesus

that could have been DISASTROUS at the end w/ fucking Ocon pitting on the last lap while people were flooding the pitlane. WTF was that. This is an F1 race not a takeover event. Get your shit together FIA!!! Of course we'll never hear anything about it because they never admit fault to anything

Yeah, that was just fuckin nuts. I know Ted's normally an eccentric person to begin with, but you could really hear the genuine concern in his voice there because that was a very real threat and I cannot believe no one got clipped. I REALLY hope the drivers raise hell about that at the next drivers meeting cuz thats just unacceptable. If the FIA is the one that fines teams and drivers..........who fines the FIA????

Here's an interesting perspective from a photographer that was actually in the pack that almost got wiped out by Ocon (tho he wasnt actually IN the fast lane when Ocon was coming in



Its an interesting point he makes that the area for the podium drivers to pull their car in at this track is right at the START of pitlane instead of the end like most other tracks. If this had been at the end, it would never have been an issue. But regardless, was still a big clusterfuck.

I had a feeling someone was going to bin it during the last few minutes. Was not disappointed. LH being knocked out was mildly surprising.

Non-spoiler, with the track being resurfaced and being non-abrasive, I really hope this isn’t another Baku where a set of hards will last the whole race, a-la Ocon’s strategy. That was boring as hell.
