Yeah I share that assessment - by over protecting Verstappen rather than helping him to mature and develop they have created a monster - I also think the authorities are culpable for not stamping down on Verstappen when he first entered F1 they should have sent him back to karting or F3 as a disciplinary measure for his dangerous ego centric attitude..... this was an avoidable issue but inaction has made it grow... 3 places is a bit soft, 3 races more like it.... the kid needs teaching

I posted on here in the last season I think about how much Max had matured as a driver.

Read somewhere he's going to take an engine penalty as well, the commenter was unsure if he could combine, at which point it's zero penalty anyway.

he may have matured a little but still a long way to go and Red Bull are hindering the process

I was wondering why Merc didn't take one for Hamilton at the last race to be honest. Given his starting position it surely would have been worth it, (assuming he will need to take one anyway, of course).

If Bottas could take them back up to a 3rd from last, you know Lewis could.

At least Dan Ticktum has been let go by Williams.. one less dangerous driver with fewer options to an F1 seat.

Good qualifying session, the tricky track conditions definitely helped Norris and Russell.

Only seat not confirmed yet is Giovinazzi. I thought Calum Ilott might get the seat but he has apparently signed a contract for IndyCar. The other Ferrari academy drivers would be Marcus Armstrong and Robert Shwartzman, both have tested this year for Ferrari. Both where neck-and-neck in F3 but the latter has done better in F2.

Latest from Karen Horner;

Lewis loves to try and play with people’s minds, and Max just doesn’t bite. The one that is really feeling the pressure is Lewis.
He might finally be losing the plot.

Sounds like he is trying to protect Crashstappen - Horner has been very aggressive with the rhetoric in the media

The finish was his own fault, should have followed instructions from the team.

Lewis is first to 100 wins. Is he the best F1 driver ever or does that accolade go to Schumacher?

Great drive from him yesterday, amazing to get up to P2.

Horner will give him extra biscuits and pats on the head for that.

Easily 'one of', but nobody will ever settle on 'the best' above all others.

It'll end up in a 'back when it was proper racing' or 'X had a faster car' type mix of comments.

Senna.

(Or Fangio.. You know, back when we had real racing).

Entertaining race this weekend. Sad for Norris, but he has talent and it will come. Lewis right where he needed to be when it counted. Great drive from last-to-2nd for Max as well. Not sure wtf Bottas "strategy" was meant to be. He was already between Lewis and Max, so what did moving him even further back down the grid do? Not that it mattered.. He pretty much just waved him through anyway.

That's just Bottas all over, even before he was dumped from the team, his ability to defend a position is zero.
