Magical combination those two, only thing I hope is that Russell won’t be on a leash.

Omg what just happened today?

Hamilton came out of the pitlane, cold tyres, and squeezed towards Verstappen. Both entered the corner side by side Hamilton had a marginal advantage. Verstappen went in fierce and Hamilton gave no room, both were to blame for colliding; racing incident would be a logical outcome.

Verstappen gets a grid penalty.

At Silverstone Verstappen got chipped away by Hamilton at 300km/h and Hamilton get’s a 10sec penalty which isn’t really a penalty… and only 1 point on his license where Verstappen get’s two today. Where is the consistency?

I 100% agree that there is a lack of consistency, and it does F1 no favours at all.  However, when Whingey-Spice said that he thought it was 50:50 and a racing incident, I knew that he knew that Max was in the wrong  :)

But that aside, Max did himself no favours at all when he walked away from the crash and did not check whether Lewis was alright when there was still a Red Bull on top of him.....

If both of them don't start being a bit more sensible, there is a real chance that one of them will be dead before season end...

there seems to be a trend where Hamilton is never in the wrong no matter how many times he crashes.. and yet some say I have a tin foil hat.. :D

If he was not deemed to be in the wrong at Silverstone, why did he get a penalty?

I believe when Max climbed out if his car Hamilton tried to carry on his race so he must be okay one could presume, also creating a very dangerous situation for Max, what if the Mercedes got loose while Max was walking beside it?

Furthermore it was Hamilton waving the Union Jack in great joy on Silverstone after hospitalizing Max and not ask about his well being.

Anyway, the heat is on I just hope we don’t have to grieve about somebody... I wouldn’t wanna be in the stewards their shoes even if it were a pair of handmade Wesco’s I mean custom made of course…

Well.  There is your view and my view, but the truth is probably somewhere in between  :)

that penalty was nothing compared to what max got, considering the speed at which both incident occurred..

Well this was a costly race for Hamilton he should have taken the upperhand here but didn’t.
