    That first half lap of genuine racing between these two was electric to watch. That's why I watch motor racing. Let us all hope the 2022 cars work as they are apparently suppose to, and we can have racing like that up and down the entire field, all race every race.

    Clearly Max's fault. Lewis is in front, Max comes from behind, puts his front tire in front of Lewis's back tire and accelerates while Lewis brakes for the curve. Lewis's car slows down, Max's car speeds up, Max's accelerating right back tire meets Lewis's descelarating left front tire...booom! The rest is gospel. That flying wheel could have hit Max's head and decapitate him or make him look like an Easter Island statue for the rest of his life.

    I agree you can see he (lh) has ample time to slow before the collision and he actually moves more towards the outside line to catch the inside of the second apex of the chicane which from watching the video from all the available angles is (MV) line into the second part of the sequence. I can tell (mv) expected (lh) to stay closer to the Apex of the first corner subsequently bringing him outside the racing line for the latter part of the turn which (lh) clearly if you watch before the turn in encroaches enough into (mv) line just enough to upset the drive of that man and wreck him into the barrier

    Verstappe and Hamilton turn to the left 0:27. Then both try to take a different arc through the turn. Verstappe only leaves room for 1 car on the very inside of the turn and ending on the very outside of the turn. Hamilton wants to not touch the inside of the turn and end at the very outside of the turn leaving no room for a car at all.

    I am not verstappen fan nor hamilton fan. Hamilton has done this with redbull for more than 3 times. Hamilton does not go to available place for him nor backs up little bit for avoiding crash. Understeer was problem they say but if he could have braked harder for reaching apex he could have avoided this situation. Hamilton had advantage during red flag for repairing his front wing and got lucky with broken ferrari.

    I wanted anyone but Mercedes to win this year's Championship until I've had to constantly listen to the whining from RB about what to all intents and purposes was a racing incident. Lewis has been letting Max take all the 50/50s until this point in the season, but realising now that the RB was going to remain the faster car for the whole season and being his home GP, he decided to get his elbows out and it worked out. If Max doesn't ever want to back off in 50/50 situations then why should the other driver. Game on now and I don't mind now if the Mercs win as long as that whining Horner and Marco are shut up!

    We want to see two guys racing wheel to wheel while respecting each other. Inevitably, with that speed and aggressiveness accidents, or race incidents if you like, do happen. So, do we want to stop them flighting and make races become less exciting or let them keep on pushing to the limits? Tough call, innit? Having said that, particularly on this one, I do thing Ham was more to blame as clearly in the footage you can see he was in an awkward position to turn in into the high-speed-copse-corner and therefore should've backed off. In the normal course of events both drivers would've been out, but luck did play on Ham's side this time. I wouldn't go any further than that and stick to the chatter and excitement that sort of events bring to the sport. Bring the next race on ... PD: Not nice from Ham though that sort of celebration when your mate is at the Ozzy after such a a heavy crash.

    Hamilton didn’t turn hard enough, Verstappen turned too hard. Hamilton could see that Verstappen was overcompensating on the corner, and Verstappen tried to make a pass at the wrong time. Seems like predominance of fault could go one way or the other. The stewards decided Hamilton had more fault.

This collide remember me what have happened with other F1 greats , Aryton Senna vs Alain Prost, Michael Schumacher vs Damon Hill .

    Anyone is saying that Max is the new super star and the best of F1 as today. But if we compare his results by the 10th race of 2017, his 3rd season driving a Red Bull they are lesser than those of Lando Norris in a slower McLaren. Max is beatable if McLaren gets better or when Lando gets a leveled car to race against him.

    You are wrong. Lewis slowed down. Max not that much. Unfortunately, Max's back tire was behind Lewis's front tire. They had to meet each other. The one who came from behind was at fault. Hamilton was right to say that. It was exactly what happened.

    Vercrashen wouldn't have been there if he had yielded the position like the rules say as he maintained his position by going off track earlier in the lap, but Hamilton was a little optimistic that he would be able to make that one stick, I'm not surprised horner is blaming Hamilton though, he blames everyone that has an accident with his love child even if his love child is at fault

    Easy to give a 10 second penalty when he gets out of the car. My heart dropped when max hit the wall in real time. Lewis was out breaked and out of position. He had no apex. Bad move on his part.

    I don't think so, the first move was cut off and the inside pass was the only option. Hamilton took inside and then verstappen tried too hard to hit the apex with a vehicle already by the rear quarter panel. The pass was already happening, a legal pass nonetheless, and there was contact. A fair penalty in my opinion
