Laid the first 2 in the betting today but didn't want to see a crash that soon. Will Lewis have a penalty? The market said it was 1/10 one of them would win which was daft.

He should be disqualified the cheating horrible little runt .

Even with the pen, he has to make up 30 seconds in around 34 laps AND get past Leclerc, Norris and Bottas.

what a shock, huh?    cheat all you want, you're still guaranteed a podium finish. Crazy

Lewis could be down to sixth after his forced penalty. The gaps are not growing as fast as usual.
Report sageform July 18, 2021 4:13 PM BST
He has had 16 laps to pass Leclerc but failed so far.

What did Hamilton do wrong? He was challenging on the inside with Verstappen on the outside, and plenty of space on either. Hamilton held his ground, but Verstappen turned in.

I've seen Verstappen done much worse in previous races - intimidating and forcing his way round - but found his match today. It was a merely racing incident, if anything.

totally agree impossible -

probably shouldn't have even been a penalty but as Verstappen had effectively served the 'ultimate race penalty' I guess they felt obliged, allied to the danger of collisions like that at relatively high speed reality though a total 50/50 where both drivers could have given a bit more and decided not to...

been on the cards for a while as Verstappen effectively takes the Senna approach ( not a criticism)  of forcing his opponent to concede or and large Hamilton in particular has played the long game but with the Championship slipping eventually that approach can't continue and Verstappen especially with some sore ribs etc may consider how much he wishes to keep his approach...

great theatre none the less and two of the most talented F1 drivers I've had the pleasure to watch.

Verstappen had been deploying "my way or the highway" mentality on the track for some time doing to others but, Hamilton (on sunday) decided not to play his game.

And, believe it or not, Hamilton has been getting abuses online since. A pathetic lot these non-entities, jealous and racist mongrels just because of the colour of his skin. Oh,for those lesser-informed his mum is white!

A little disappointed to see the roll call of racist mongrels severely limited today! Whilst several are banned they are still plenty of stupid’s about!

On the plus side they know nothing about sport so very unlikely to bump into them on my travels.
